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.)

You can't move them but you can destroy them at a cost. Not sure if it varies from project to project but demolishing a bridge costs a bit more than 10,000 I believe.

hmm... I'd better plan well then. not like the random things on the island levels!
Posted: 06/20/13, 04:57:18
i have been catching bugs and fish on the island tonight for two hours and i made over 600k bells. This is amazing!
Posted: 06/20/13, 05:13:55
If we cut tries down or whatever on the island, is it corrected the next day or no?
Posted: 06/20/13, 05:14:58
@DrFinkelstein

Nope. I completely gutted my island of everything except palm trees, and each time I go back it's still exactly the same, heh.
Posted: 06/20/13, 05:20:24
@DrFinkelstein no, the island is permanent like your town. plant more trees.
Posted: 06/20/13, 05:20:45
All I did was cut down one normal tree for a stump. Don't some bugs show up on stumps? Plus I figured if there are less normal trees, the random bugs will be more the big palm beetles... i might just cut down all but one normal tree then. Hmm, I'll think it over.

The island prints bells. It actually takes any semblance of a challenge away from the game. And yet, I cannot resist it!

I've completed three projects now as of today.... a yellow bench, a bridge, and the Reset Center. I'm hoping this dream shit kicks in soon, but I think tomorrow the little Nook boys might remodel their shop so I suspect I might not be able to have both happen on the same day? Could be wrong though.

Also, for those having trouble with fake art, here's an awesome link to a great Art Purchasing Guide. Check it out.

Woohoo! Can't wait to check this and the dream suites out!

Oh my....I didn't know that bastard sold fake art.

@iAaronG

Oh yeah. I think he did in City Folk too. But he also sells fake statues too. I've been boned by him a bit already. But NO MORE! lol Not when I can only buy one item a week from him instead of his whole lot.

Played for a while last night. heliumsky came over to grab some cherries, then Abdooooo came in. We were chatting it up and having a good time...then my internet decided that it was tired of letting everyone have fun.

Sorry guys. I hope you got to keep some fruit, Abdooooo. I know helium kept her cherries.

I took a few pictures last night too. Will upload them when I get to work.

EDIT: How to spot fake paintings and fake statues.

What good is the Nintendo Zone though? lol I've never understood it.

It's nothing big, really. There are some exclusive videos and such you can watch, and a bunch of Nintendo ads, (TV commercials) and "games" like quizzes about Nintendo games. That's about it. It's really just an added perk if you are out with your 3DS and happen upon a Nintendo Zone.

The one bonus I've found is that, occasionally, the Nintendo Zone will have coupons for games at Best Buy. I was able to take $5 off Mario Kart 7 that way. Using the Nintendo Zone, the 3DS will display a barcode, and you just have the cashier scan that, and boom. You save money!

That was a while ago though, not sure what deals (if any) they have going on right now.

@DrFinkelstein

Thankfully this statue didn't bone me



Okay that was a bad joke...
Posted: 06/20/13, 15:12:42
So no Dream Town action today... Bummer. But Nook is closed tomorrow for upgrading and Kicks is being built today. So I guess its not all bad.

Well, the fact that you have to fund all of these pubic work projects means you will need TONS of money. I am glad the game gives you the avenue to make tons of bells if you want to put the time in.

My shoe store has been under construction for three days...is that normal?

@VofEscaflowne

You were able to donate that one? It looks kinda fake to me ;p
Posted: 06/20/13, 16:53:34
@kgtennispro

You can donate statues? I thought it was just for the paintings. What looks fake about it?
Posted: 06/20/13, 17:02:27
@VofEscaflowne

Yeah, anything you buy from Redd can be donated.

And the link ludist mentioned says that your statue's fake if it has a cloth on his right shoulder, which is what it looks like in that picture at least. Oh and your boob statue's fake too
