Animal Crossing: New Leaf Review (Nintendo 3DS) (9.7)  by  

Animal Crossing... I still remember getting up early before heading to my high school classes just to see what Tom Nook was selling that day. This game series has always held such a dear place in my heart. I think it has to do with the fact that heading to the land of Plaisant, Tranquil, or other towns of mine always being a great escape for me. Making Bells, filling my catalog, and fishing in the ocean were always points of peace for me. While I've been very public about my discontent with AC: City Folk, I have a new-found hope once more for New Leaf. From all the information that has been dished out due to the game's release already in Japan, and Nintendo pushing more information through Nintendo Directs, I am confident this game will be a fresh take on a classic and comforting idea.

The game released in North America on June 9th, 2013 and released in other territories shortly after.

Please use this thread for all discussion on the game. If you would like to make trades or visit towns, please use the specific Animal Crossing New Leaf Trading Thread for further assistance. It makes more sense to keep this focused on the gameplay and game discussion while leaving bartering out of it. There are no Friend Codes this time around for Animal Crossing, which is a blessing! Many of us have already befriended ourselves via the 3DS Friend Codes Thread thread. That thread will be where we continue to befriend each other and trade 3DS IDs for the sake of visiting each other's towns.

Many many years ago I discovered a wonderful Animal Crossing website which has a great catalog feature set up. Now, the new game will mean it'll take time for the site to get a full correct catalog up and running but I expect it to work beautifully once more to allow anyone to track their catalog there. You can find this website at the Animal Crossing Community page. They also have forums there which are very active right now in anticipation of this game. Granted, the general age of the members of that site fall a bit lower than here, but I've found over all the years I've been there that the discussion is still mostly pleasant and easy.

Lastly, I want you all to enjoy the music from this new game or any of the games, whenever you want. The following site will allow you to hear the "Xam" or "Xpm" music that would naturally occur in your life right now as if you were in the game. You can select from any of the Animal Crossing games and the music will continually loop until the hour changes. It's pretty cool. You can find that page here. It's by default at the City Folk music.

So again, everyone enjoy this game! Enjoy this discussion! If you're interested in being negative about the title, just find your way to a different thread for that because this thread is about the experience and meant to bring the community together during the launch of one of the most community driven games Nintendo offers.

Say hello to Kapp'n, cause we're about to make it into town on June 9th.

(One more quick note; Keep an eye out for the game's review, which I will write sometime in the end of June probably.)

Glad to see they brought hide and seek back...although the villagers are still god awful at it ;p

Oh and I got my first Street Pass today! They gave me this awesome purple balloon! :D

Yeah... I can't wait to get my wetsuit and finally figure out what the hell this is...

It's on the small blocked off part of the beach.

Oh man...that's terrible, lol!

If you're on now, I can come over and try to dive and get it for you
Posted: 06/14/13, 04:04:25
I haven't had much of a chance to play this since it came out, but I got an AWESOME item today from the Fortune Cookie. Majora's Mask! Now I gotta make the easy shirt to finish out the outfit.

Just wish I could get an Axe/Watering Can to show up. Tired of shovels...
Posted: 06/14/13, 04:20:14
Watering can, eh? You can get one NOW!

Talk to Isabelle about her tips and tricks. All of them. Follow her instructions and voila!
Posted: 06/14/13, 04:24:28

You can't dive in the river.

Looks like that present will chill there forever, lol

Just got done playing with WickedSymphony and VickiL. Fun times! I made a lot of bells from screwing around on the island, and my museum is beefing up nicely.
Posted: 06/14/13, 05:31:50

You know, when she told me about it I thought she was going to give me one. Then she didn't so I moved on lol. Thanks!
Posted: 06/14/13, 05:35:03

Ah I didn't see this till now. It's all good. If I don't get the wetsuit tomorrow, maybe we can arrange that.


Oh shit... really? Well that's regrettable... I wonder if there is SOMEway... I hope it wont affect a perfect town status or anything.

Can't you still reach that area from the ocean? I have something similar in my town but I don't think it's entirely blocked off if I can just swim in the ocean.

You are a genius! lol
Posted: 06/14/13, 06:14:30

Score! Thanks VofE!

I'm finding that I don't have much to do at night besides fish and look for bugs. Since Amanda is the mayor, she has the ability to change the times of the stores - at what point can she do that? She's currently working on getting the town's approval rating to 100% (which is turning out to take a while).
Posted: 06/14/13, 08:13:47
Isabelle will tell her what to do. Usually it's one simple task. I had to recycle something. BAM, 100%!
Posted: 06/14/13, 08:47:02
Really? We've had her sell trash to the re-tail store, and it makes the percentage go up a point.

From what I've found, various things will increase your approval rating, from recycling trash, to talking with villagers, to selling various wares at Re-Tail. I think we got up to 67% or something like that, and quit after it started taking too long.

From what I saw, Isabelle simply suggests a new thing every time. Unless, that is, you do the thing she wants you to do, then go back to her, then do the next thing she wants you to do, etc etc. (rather than do any of these actions in any order).
Posted: 06/14/13, 09:18:02
I got my approval rating up to 80% super fast and I didn't even do much?!
Posted: 06/14/13, 09:30:17
This game is released TODAY in Europe (EXCITE!) so expect an influx of mayors this weekend - myself included.

Any other GMTers signing up?

Once I instate an ordinance, can I change it later? How often and how long does it take?
Posted: 06/14/13, 14:25:31
FIXED! Isabelle is working with Nook to rig the polls in favor of you. You sir now owe a favor to the Animafia.

Real World vacation kicks off my Animal Crossing New Leaf adventure. Now I can really put some time into it.

I don't think there is a limit to how often you can change it but it does cost 20,000 Bells per ordinance. I put the "Bell Boom" one in mine. The others are nice but I don't think there's that big of an advantage. Having flowers not die is cool though! But seeing as I'll be playing this daily for a while, watering a few flowers here and there is not too much work.
