I couldn't find a general Animal Crossing thread so I thought I'd post a thought I had here.

I have recently purchased Happy Home Designer and I don't know if anyone else does this but I re-created my New Leaf character in the game and I like to role-play the idea that the two games are interconnected and my character actually has a day job.

Now, this got me thinking that I'd actually love a job feature in the main animal crossing games as yet another way to make some bells. Of course I don't think it should be strictly enforced and completely optional, even if you do choose to have a job I wouldn't necessarily enforce strict rules on it either. Possibly, something similar to the part time job in the coffee shop in New Leaf (which I believe may have been a kinda test for such a feature) but instead of items and furniture it is actually a genuine way to make bells.

I think with the games numerous shops etc Nintendo could generate a magnitude of different job scenarios which I genuinely believe would make animal crossing even more immersive.

I just created a new player character for the first time. I've had the games for 4 years, and never had another player character until now. What's funny is that my new character looks the same as my old character. Guess it just fits the dual-identity nature more. Plus, it will be cool to see how villagers react to a non-mayor inhabitant.

Just re-opened my town, upgraded to "welcome amiibo" and am enjoying it after a few years break. This is pure curiosity, but I can't find any information after a good trawl around - at the start just after the upgrade we are given an item called "instruction manual" which has the option either to 1. drop on the ground or 2. quit. What's that about? I dropped mine on the ground outside my house, but it just sits there. Was I supposed to keep it in my pocket? How do I use it? Anybody know?

Can now answer this myself, and I admit to being a bit thick. When you take the instruction manual into your home, the "drop on ground" option changes to "display". When displayed on floor or furniture surface you have a big green book which actually let's you access the instruction manual from your home inside the game, rather than needing to suspend playing to access it in the usual manner. Brilliant idea for the newbies.
Will leave this here in case there is anyone else like me who doesn't cotton on to quickly 😁

Hello everyone! I hope that you don't mind me resurrecting this old thread - I just have a quick question that I'd like to ask on behalf of my girlfriend: she has a physical copy of Animal Crossing on 3DS and was curious as to whether it would be possible to have a second town if she bought a second physical copy of the game?

I've never owned a 3DS, unfortunately - so any info would be much appreciated! Thanks very much in advance!

Yes, you can create your 2nd Town if you have 2nd copies.

She does realise that she is saying goodbye to any other form of recreation IRL, doesn't she?
I actually eventually had three towns on the go at various intervals with "Wild World" some years ago. I didn't know anyone else who played (and the game WiFi wasn't very slick in those days) so I even purchased a second DS so that I could operate local exchange visits between my towns. It took a bit of organising, but worked quite well once set up as long as you didn't mind just having the visitor active while the town owner just stood and snoozed. A second 3DS is considerably more expensive than a DS, though maybe a second-hand one would fit requirements. It certainly opens up the game if you are prepared to expend the extra time running two towns, and speeds up the items available in one's catalogue by exchanging or just handling of goods to increase it. What the other village is getting up to also becomes a topic of comment by one's animal villagers.
The danger of this will be that you may get drawn into the addiction as well so you can go off island playing together, so you have been warned. I don't play any longer myself as I decided real life needed more attention, but I played Wild World, New Leaf and the upgraded version for many hours over a number of years.
Hope she has loads of fun.

I dropped a good 300 hours into this game. Man I wish we'd get a new entry on the Switch soon. This was, by far, one of the absolute best titles on 3DS.

Does anyone still play this game? I just picked this up and wanted to try it out of curiosity.

@Terri637
Got alerted to your post as I have left the "Watch this topic" button switched to yes. Sorry to tell you that I have now given up playing, though I logged over 500 hours on it a few years ago, and played Wild World before that. I did revive it for several months after the upgrade to Welcome Amiibo came along, but it is a BIG time sink and I just had to drop it to get on with my family life and activities.
New Leaf can be played intermittently, but sadly Nintendo have structured it in a way that removes some of the pleasure if you don't play fairly regularly. It's time/day dependent so not the sort of game that recommences exactly where you were when you last closed it down. The animals are aware you've not been around, and if you don't visit a few times a week and give it some time you may find one of your favourite animals has moved out. Having said that it is the most fun I've ever had with anything out of a plastic box, and I played on my own with only very occasional exchange visits with a couple of casual friends.
Go to the website page below and read on starting the game before you open it up. It will give you info on selecting the town layout you might prefer, and how to choose what your avatar will look like. There are other pages for all sorts of really useful info on various aspects of this really deep game:-
https://www.thonky.com/animal-crossing-new-leaf/starting-the-...
This is another good place for info, and they have forums where you might find someone to connect with:- https://nookipedia.com/wiki/Main_Page
If there is any information you need about the game, just post and I'll reply as soon as possible after I pick up the email alert. If you're not a lone 3DS player you might be able to convince friends to get a copy and play it as well. Just thinking about it makes me want to start another town, or play in my old one, but there just isn't time. Have fun.

@Mowzle thanks for the heads up. It sounds like a really time consuming game. I just play when i have the time. As my life is very busy and i play just on my leisure time. So i guess my town will probably wont make it lol. Thank you for the links i will check it out.

You're welcome. It's a pleasure.
Try it and see, as a newcomer you would find you could enjoy it a lot just starting out without getting too deeply into it.

@Terri637 Keep your net handy and shake the trees, Bells and sometimes other goods fall out of the trees. Keep the net in your hand as bee nests will fall out also, you can get stung by the bees.

My favorite part of this game is my house. I drew a creepy smiley face, made that the wallpaper and carpet designs, and the only furniture is a random plate of pancakes sitting in the middle of the room.

I'm sure that confused the heck out of all the people I streetpassed.

Still waiting for Atlus to make Snowboard Kids 3
