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.)

So did anyone else win their fishing tourney yesterday?

I have a second Marine Pop floor too if anyone wants it.
Posted: 10/13/13, 02:28:37

Ill take the marine pop wall for my girlfriend! It was her birthday yesterday after all. I won my fishing tourney with an Ocean Sunfish some 120 inches. Won by a long margin.

What'd you win with?
Posted: 10/13/13, 15:07:21

Pike, 50-something inches.

Did you go to the Island?

We'll set up a time next week for the wall?

Yeah. I'm not going to work tomorrow so tonight might even work but I don't know what my schedule is tonight after I go watch the walking dead premiere at my cousin's.

I totally went to the island. During the day I hit up a lot of great fish.
Posted: 10/13/13, 16:29:14
I just sunk ALLLLLLLLLL my savings into turnips today. So... we'll see how that goes.
Posted: 10/14/13, 00:25:31
I didn't remember that it's turnip buyin' day until 12:38 pm. Oh well, maybe next week. My closets are full of candy and masks anyway.
Posted: 10/14/13, 03:02:09
Oh snap. Candy. I need to start stocking up on that. Haven't bought any yet...!
Posted: 10/14/13, 05:46:17

The candy is important but masks are doubly so.
Posted: 10/14/13, 06:31:22
Are you guys and gals looking at guides to get all this stuff?
Posted: 10/14/13, 06:44:36

Well 'tonight' was me at work so, not happening clearly .

BTW could I ask a favour? You can get fertiliser now, right? Can you stockpile some for me? It will help with the hybrids apparently.
Posted: 10/14/13, 11:43:31
Woot. Got a Bagworm.

Bought a fence area to to try and control my hybrid attempts a bit better. Does anyone know if there is a limit on those, because it's not on my list anymore. Wanted to build a few more.
Posted: 10/14/13, 14:24:41

Congrats on the bagworm! I am not sure about fencing limits though. I only have one but I've only tried for one.


Sure, I'll start buying it when I see it. I only used it twice near bamboo for no real reason.


Get all of what? I use a guide to help remind me of when I need to fish or search for missing bugs. I don't use the guide much though.
Posted: 10/14/13, 20:25:01
BTW, are there any Time Travel experts around? (Not a question I ever though I'd be asking! )

Nothing sinister, I just need to adjust my clock forward an hour for Daylight Savings. I'm worried about the potential negative effects on the game though, so I need to know what I could be letting myself in for.

Probably not geared at me, but I never use a guide for AC. I just plug along and hope.

Question: I've been checking in with Isabelle every day to establish my "perfect town" status for 15(?) days in a row(?) so I can get the gold watering can. However, today she wasn't in the office (lazy b----*!); she was in the town square for the explorer's day. So, my question is, did I lose my X days in a row status and have to start over at 0 days? Or does the game known enough to skip today and pick up my streak again tomorrow?

*bones. what'd you think I said?
Posted: 10/15/13, 08:06:00

Nah it still counts I think.

For starters you don't have to ask on consecutive days I believe. Just have to talk to her on 15 days when you happen to have Perfect status on those days.

Secondly, the same thing happened to me a few months back during the Fireworks Festivals held every weekend. I mentally added an extra two days to when I expected to recieve the can, but I got it on the 15th consecutive day anyway. Game must have counted the Fireworks days anyway or something.

Just make sure your town continues to be perfect and all should be well.
Posted: 10/15/13, 08:30:52
You don't even need to talk to her everyday to get the can. Your town just must be in that status for 15 days. The Jacob's Ladders are good indications with or without Isabelle.
Posted: 10/15/13, 13:49:41
Innnnteresting! Thanks, folks!
Posted: 10/15/13, 15:06:13

If you don't cross the time-streams, you should be okay. If you forward for DLS, just do so and you should be fine. As long as you do it in the 3DS of course.

If you need to go back, well set the clock back, but be sure to let enough time to pass so that you don't boot up the game 'before' you last did. That'll fuck it all up. Otherwise, the game wont know the difference.

That's what I always understood that is. I never did the time travel thing, not that I can remember.

I'm buying some fertilizer for you too buddy.
Posted: 10/16/13, 05:28:13

Alright, I'll give it a whirl. Thanks!
