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 won first in today's Bug Off!!! It involved an Orchid Mantis of 97 points. I know my girlfriend beat the hell out of my record in her own town.

How did you all do?
06/16/13, 01:57

06/16/13, 03:13

I received a Beetle Chair when I hit 80 pts.
06/16/13, 03:23

06/16/13, 03:34
I got first place with 110 points! I also got a firefly lamp as my prize for getting first place when I entered my bug. I guess the top prize one will be mailed tomorrow morning.

Pooh. I got 2nd with 99 points, and gave a lot of pricey island beetles to Nat. A villager won with 102 points, so I went home with the silver and a snail clock.
06/16/13, 04:55
hahha, I got first place w/ 87 points
06/16/13, 04:58
Not sure if I won or not because the ceremony was cancelled because I was at work at the end of the bug-off. However, I did score a 117 point "bird-winged butterfly" so I'm guessing I won.
06/16/13, 05:01
1st place with an even 100 pt bird wing. I had 3 bugs over 80 pts. I got beattle chair, ladybug rug and caterpillar sofa plus that nice shiny gold trophy!
06/16/13, 05:05
Yeah I just checked my bulletin board and I definitely won that one....second place only had 61 points against my 117.
06/16/13, 05:50
I was only able to play for a few minutes during the bug off. But I still won with something like 60 pts for a tiger butterfly.
06/16/13, 05:53

Sweet! I'd love that!

Maybe tomorrow?
06/16/13, 05:53
I had a 96 point agraias butterfly (sp?). It was the tops when I left this afternoon. Can't wait to check the board to see if I won!
06/16/13, 05:53
I guess there was no K.K. Slider tonight? I know where he usually is but I guess we'll have to wait a bit longer still...
06/16/13, 06:08

Yeah, I'm kinda missing having music in my house.

At least I have 3 gyroids I guess ;p
06/16/13, 06:36
Well he's in Club LOL right? I don't have that yet... which is sad. Hopefully by next saturday.
