NO pictures: More (late) AC3DS Info

Okay, let’s try this again… I typed up a whole post an hour ago and in the process of publishing it, either WordPress or Firefox deleted the entire contents of the post. Well thank you very much, a body-less, empty blog post with a title is oh-so-useful to me.


Well, firstly, sorry for a post after so long that doesn’t even have pictures >.< But I saw a video last night of a discussion between the producer and the developers of the Animal Crossing game for 3DS that pointed out (or confirmed) some features of the new game. It’s an old video but I don’t think it was translated til a couple weeks ago and just had to post about it after watching it ๐Ÿ˜€


To speed things up, here’s the video from Youtube :mrgreen:


So to recap…

โง As Town Mayor, you can add outdoor benches and lamps to give your town its character.

โง As Mayor, you have a secretary, “Shizu”, who may or may not be of help. I hope you can give her a makeover.

โง You can customise the outside of your house! The walls, fence and letterbox! They better mean the roof too…

โง The houses at the end of the map are “model homes”, other people’s house designs acquired via StreetPass!

โง Tom Nook is the real estate agent in charge of the model homes.

ย ย ย ย  Lyle or Redd better not be in charge of Nookington’s… Oh wait, there’s the Mininooks.

โง Across the railroad (north?) is a “shopping mall” ๐Ÿ˜€

โง The town is bigger than before ๐Ÿ˜€ I hope they mean even bigger than ACCF.

โง Townies’ newly adjusted heights now reflect their species better, so now for example a squirrel only comes up to your nose and you’re the same height as an elephant. Naturally the bear is the tallest of them all.

โง You can use your own designs on some parts of the furniture.

โง Boys could wear a skirt…


Isn’t that awesome? ๐Ÿ˜Ž You guys probably found out all this ages ago, but I must have been living under a rock the past month or so so I never knew we already had concrete facts about the upcoming game ๐Ÿ˜€



After some reflection, I think it’s a little sad to suddenly have the role of Mayor in the new Animal Crossing. All of a sudden you’re no longer part of your town, but stand above it. If they implement this new aspect too much, I think it would be lonely.

And also, I’m the type of gamer who will control as many aspects of the game as I am given the freedom to, doing endless research to find all the possibilities, only to spend days stressing over which one choice is the best one. In ACWW I already had control over the grass, house type and map layout. If I’m given more choice my brain will explode ๐Ÿ˜†

I’m sure we all assumed though that we would start off as a normal citizen, and have to work our way up to being the Mayor. It might be just like that in the end, which I think would be perfect ๐Ÿ™‚ In that case it would be rewarding rather than lonely ๐Ÿ™‚

Maybe more thoughts to come…


Here’s two frames I thought were interesting, though I’m sure you’ve seen the map before ๐Ÿ™‚


That’s it for now. I hope the post doesn’t mess up again. Somehow even in the middle of holidays I am still so busy o_o So I don’t know when I can get to sorting through my new batch of photos! xP My own is still 3 days behind.
