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.)

@Mop it up

I do not need the TV. The gold and the Megacero Skull are definitely still useful. When will you be on? Tonight at all?

I could pop over to pick those up and unload whatever candy I have left. I'd be easy cause once I drop all the candy you can just save and boot.

@DrFinkelstein @Mop it up

I've got like a dozen pieces of candy too. I guess you can have it if Fink doesn't satisfy your inexplicable candy craving. What do you want it for anyway?
Posted: 11/02/13, 23:01:35
@DrFinkelstein Hm, maybe. What time were you thinking? I'll have to check and make sure I still have the skull, been doing a little cleaning the other day. I found two tails...

@Shadowlink Animal Crossing lets me indulge in my fantasy of eating whatever I want without getting fat.

@Mop it up

That doesn't taste as good though

Lemme know when you guys are on, I'm available for like the next 12 hours or so.

@Mop it up

I'm recording an episode of the podcast (well part of it) tonight so maybe after that, between 9 and 930 est?
Posted: 11/03/13, 01:28:24
Sure, sounds like a plan.
Posted: 11/03/13, 01:31:54
Sorry about that, we just finished recording. I'm gathering the candy, so just open your gate and I'll be there ASAP. The candy is split across two characters so it'll take a moment.

Heading on now.
Posted: 11/03/13, 03:42:32
Thanks to a combination of headphones and secluding myself in a location of utter silence, I was finally able to hunt down that goddamn mole cricket.

November critters complete!

Also passed my third Gracie test. Soon I will have fertiliser...
Posted: 11/05/13, 11:11:33
So...what fish and dives are available now that I wouldn't have already caught?


I caught my mole cricket on Saturday. I pretty much isolated it to one area and just started digging until I found it. I think Pietro and Scoot had to be wondering what I was trying to accomplish...but I did it. Just one bug left, and I think I can catch it next month.

The mole cricket wasn't hard for me. But diving for crabs has been. I had some bad luck this past weekend.
Posted: 11/05/13, 19:28:01

I just had trouble hearing it. Like I said, once I hid myself from the world and put my headphones on, it was a lot easier.

I found one within a couple of minutes but drove it into the water, the next one was right outside my front door when I came out from storing some items. Found it, and then circled around to catch it.


Football Fish and Puffer Fish are the new fish.

Dives... Lots of crabs. Horsehair Crab, Red King Crab, Snow Crab & the Sea Cucumber

Cucumber took me a ridiculous amount of time considering it's supposed to be common.

Cool...are they out all day, or only at certain times?
Posted: 11/05/13, 21:42:46
@Shadowlink I kind of wonder if different people have different odds of finding certain fish and bugs. For example, I still have never found a turtle, despite how common it supposedly is. Meanwhile, I've found dozens of dorado, which are fabled to be one of the rarest river fish. Something isn't right here!
Posted: 11/05/13, 21:45:24

I think most of them are out all day, except the fish which are a night time thing.

I'll have to double-check when I get home.

@Mop it up

It's Zero. He has removed all of his beloved turtles to save them from your predation
Posted: 11/05/13, 22:57:14
Caught them all last night (the Cucumber took me longer than I thought it would too, and sure looked odd)...so I have eight fish, one insect (which I think comes out next month), and one dive (which doesn't come until March) left. I think I'm caught up.

In other news, Bangle was camping in my town last night and I convinced her to move in. That's cool to me because she was one of my original villagers in Animal Crossing on GameCube. Woo!
Posted: 11/06/13, 16:11:16

Hmm. By my count you're missing a fishy. Here's my list of o/s fish:

Bitterling (Dec-Feb)
Oarfish (Dec-Jun)
Pond Smelt (Dec-Feb)
Sea Butterfly (Dec-Feb)
Stringfish (Dec-Feb)
Tuna (Jan-Mar)
Loach (Mar-May)
Posted: 11/06/13, 21:14:26
Wait...there's a difference between the Blow Fish and the Puffer Fish? If so, that explains it.

Also, the Bitterling is out this month, but it's more common next month.

Worth bumping: I was missing the Blowfish, so I caught one and gave it to Blathers. In related news, I also caught a Bitterling from the river last night. So I only have six fish left to find.
Posted: 11/07/13, 20:20:54

Hmm, someone has given me faulty information? (IGN?!)

I note that on the GC game the time was Dec-Feb, maybe that's where I got that from?

And oops, I wonder why I said Puffer Fish before, that was clearly wrong too. Sorry!
