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.)

I have six masks, and they just have repeats every day. Do I have all of them already? Do I keep handing out candy all night, or is it just one piece per person? I'm not sure if I should just buy enough for each of my two characters to hit all 10 townspeople, or if I should go ahead and get as much as candy possible.

Hey Fink, you around? We can get some AC trading in. I'm in chaaaaat.

Also what is your native fruit? Can I sell perfect peaches at a decent price there?
Posted: 10/19/13, 03:54:17

From what I can tell there are only six masks. I'm still waiting for a wolf. I don't know about the candy. I'm just buying some everyday since it isn't that expensive.

Last night Reggie tweeted a picture of his activity log and he has played New Leaf for 300 hours. Some people on the interwebs were saying it's fake PR crap because the number is so high. So I took a look at my playtime for the first time since July, and oh man. I'm definitely not a real person. In my defense, the only other games I've put much time into since it was released were Pikmin 3 and Terraria.

@gojira Still looking for a wolf? I can save one for you if another shows up in my shop before the 31st.

Aren't the masks reorderable?
Posted: 10/25/13, 18:57:45
What are the masks available? I know I have two for sure, possibly three...
Posted: 10/25/13, 19:14:59

I got the Wolf Mask from Jack. I'll trade ya for another one if you want? PM me if you're interested.
Posted: 10/25/13, 22:53:47
Thanks guys, but I got a wolf mask a few days ago.



Is anyone else collecting Spooky furniture? I think I'm still a few pieces short.

What are you missing? I have the complete set and if I come across a piece you need I will get it for you.
Posted: 10/26/13, 05:24:09

Spooky Furniture is also orderable. You should be able to just buy it for him.
Posted: 10/26/13, 13:14:01
I still need the Spooky Bed, Spooky Chair, Spooky Clock and the Spooky Table.
Posted: 10/26/13, 18:59:57

Awesome, I'm just missing the Beetle mask then...been slacking on candy though. I think I have five pieces and eight villagers.
Posted: 10/29/13, 21:12:08
I've started playing again to help out someone else on my list, so I may have a few things to offer.
Posted: 10/29/13, 21:28:02
So my girlfriend discovered something awesome that I never saw posted anywhere.

You can sit on the brick surrounding the great tree. Also, the camera pans over and plays music while your characters sit happily and with serenity.

Check it out!

Plus it shows you a history of your town. What an amazing find. I was so happy to have discovered it with my girlfriend. Well, she discovered it.
Posted: 10/31/13, 01:34:31
@DrFinkelstein Huh, weird that no one's mentioned that before. I discovered it about two months ago, I didn't realise it was some sort of secret. The tree needs to grow to a certain size before you're able to sit there. If you sit on the tree in someone else's town, you can see their history as well.

Haha, yeah I found that out a while back too .
Posted: 10/31/13, 02:46:21
Yeah, until we did it while playing tonight, I have never heard it uttered here, on guides, on youtube, etc. Nowhere. It was quite a pleasant shock.
Posted: 10/31/13, 03:32:03
Also, I ordered this yesterday on a whim. Too cool to pass up for a fan like myself.

Buy yours here!
Posted: 10/31/13, 04:32:58

I did see it on a guide somewhere online, but I can't remember where. Just the one though.

And I figured everyone (except me!) knew already so I didn't bother mentioning it.

BTW, you can totally catch fish in this game!
Posted: 10/31/13, 05:55:34

That's not even the same!
