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.)

Anyone get any Bingo snowmen? Mine's 2 for the day if anyone needs it.
Posted: 12/13/13, 16:18:19
I stink at making snowmen all of a sudden. I can make a Snowboy and Snowmam fine, but no Snowman (to get the Snowman furniture set). Grrr...are they smaller than Snowboys?

Oh yeah, the Ice Series. That netted me two HHA plaques (silver and gold).


Yes, sorry. All day in the ocean through May. It's also slightly bigger than a sea bass.

Snowflakes are floating around randomly when snowing, or when you build a snowmam. You can usually find one every couple of minutes. You can catch them with your net and keep them in your pockets, but you cant store them-theyll melt.

When you catch them you can give them to the Snowmam for a piece of the Ice Series. 3 flakes per piece if you made her perfectly, 5 if you botched it.

Hm, guess I'll have to check this out. There's no business like snow business.
Posted: 12/13/13, 22:23:33
I literally got 45 of my snowflakes yesterday in about a two hour span. The rest I got on Wednesday...it wasn't hard. Comb the beaches too! Snowflakes appear there as well.
Posted: 12/14/13, 00:00:20

I need to do this!
Posted: 12/14/13, 00:38:04
I think I finished the ice set earlier. It started giving me repeats so I assume I got everything!

Also, is anyone doing the Snowman Bingo? I need to fill out that card!
Posted: 12/15/13, 22:03:22
@VofEscaflowne My number today is 35.
Posted: 12/16/13, 04:13:03
If you make four Snowdads, do you get four numbers per day?

Finally rolled a perfect Snowboy...
Posted: 12/16/13, 04:20:16

Not sure about that since I haven't been able to create more than one at a time.

Anyway, my number of the day is 10 if anyone is interested.
Posted: 12/16/13, 15:52:14

I'm hoping that's the case. I'm going to attempt Bingo after I net all of the Snowman Series furniture. 1/13 so far...

Oh yeah, my house is (finally) paid in full! Woohoo!
Posted: 12/16/13, 16:07:14
So does anyone have experience time traveling? I'm thinking about going back in time to get fishes and bugs I missed, and check out Thanksgiving, but would that mess things up or even work at all?
Posted: 12/16/13, 16:23:00

From my understanding, if your town ordinance is "Keep [your town name here] Beautiful", flowers don't die and weeds won't appear. But don't hold me to that.

This explains it a lot better.

Bingo numbers today are 1 and 25.
Posted: 12/17/13, 00:22:34

So you can have multiples in your town? Awesome!
Posted: 12/17/13, 00:34:07

Oh, I need 1! When are you free to open your gates?
Posted: 12/17/13, 01:41:49
Yes you can have multiples, you inspired me! ;) I am available whenever you are.
Posted: 12/17/13, 03:12:23

Okay, I'm up for it now if you want.
Posted: 12/17/13, 03:16:34
Sorry I had to do something and forgot about this completely. Gates are open now.
Posted: 12/17/13, 03:51:37
Snowman Clock and Snowman are mine! Still twelve pieces to go in the series though...

Also, it stinks that even though I have all 72 bugs caught (and in the museum), I have to wait until the next Bug Off to get it from Nat...which is in June.
