I saw the map. Damn, it's big and it looks so lively. Reminds me of Pokemon in how it was drawn out. Looks like the city is bigger, tiny islands on the east and west side of town and an island south with houses. And apparently a town north of the village and a some houses off north of the city. Looks like there's going to be more exploration this time I wish I could post the map here, but I'm on my phone. I can tip you off to the second popular AC fansite... if that helps

Well that's just a big tease.

I would've thought that the town itself would still be randomly generated. Maybe the island is just an extension of the main part and then you get the city which would, I assume, work the same as it does in the Wii version. Maybe the area out the back is simply the streetpass display home section.
The train is probably just how you visit someone else's town.........

This is most likely just a general plan from which different layouts will be generated. Assuming it is near final.

The city does look bigger which I'm excited for. And yes, the houses in the back are probably streetpass homes you can visit.
Some other tidbits:
Flowers sparkle indicating they are watered
Furniture is customizable. As in, a cabin chair's pillows can have different patterns than plain white.
You start off living in a tent.
Judging from the map and various reports, there seems to be an explorable cave.
Camera can be rotated a full 360 degree
You can have more than 2 people in a house like in City Folk.
You can create patterns for your pants; girls can wear pants or just the long shirt, you can choose short sleeves or long sleeves, though depends on shirt it seems.
On the map, it looks like the town plaza is back that was in PG.
There's a boat with someone in it on the map- likely to be Kapp'n
So, there it is. Need to see the map on a bigger screen though

What's with the train? Was there a train in earlier versions? (I mainly played the Wii version. I didn't care for the DS version.)Having the flower sparkle when they are water is a nice feature, especially for someone like John-John who said he couldn't tell due to partial colour blindness.

@65.Victoria:-Regrettably I only played Animal Crossing Wild World where your character arrived by taxi, but I believe a person arrived by train in earlier games. There are a load of YouTube videos of the earlier games by "jvgsjeff" which make me really wish I'd had the opportunity to play the Gamecube version. I love Wild World, but I do hope the new game will bring in a wider variety of experiences similar to earlier versions. Here's a link to a video of a Sports Day event which always tickles me, but jvgsjeff's YouTube Channel has lots of earlier Animal Crossing videos. Hope the link works.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mWQP7IFVqCg&feature=related

Still can't think of a better place to kill some time.Playing Solatorobo and Pokemon White.Waiting for Animal Crossing 3DS - it's taking forever.

I loved the Cube version of the game. Many an hour spent on that title.I love the DS version of the game. I bought it day one and I still play to this day. I have only missed 2 days - ever.I don't even know why I still play, but I just do.I will get this version on day 1. And I hated the Wii version. Not being able to use the classic controller ruined it for me.

You arrived by train in the Gamecube version. It was pretty great.
Kapp'n the Kappa has since moved up in the world, previously he just rowed you to the GBA island.

And it looks like he could be going back to taking you back to the island. Unless he manages the train now. Rover needs to appear in this game. I like him.
Did he make a small cameo in Wild World? I can't remember but I do know he never appeared much at all. I think you find him at the Roost sometimes.
The thing that's interesting is the train tracks. If you look closely, it goes both ways. Through a tunnel and over the ocean. Maybe one way is for Local Play and the other for WiFi- or it takes you to the city. Unless you can cross the tracks to go to the city which seems like it'll hold most of the stores.
For those who played Population Growing, didn't you just like the sound of the train in the distance while you were doing other things?
I also liked how you can visit another person's town by having another memory card in the GCN. And how you can trade items through passwords. So, you can basically give some item to Nook and he'll give you a password to give to a friend. Lots of people did this at this Animal Crossing fansite so they can trade items with friends online.
Just some little trivia.

@Mowzle - that Sports Day does look fun. Wonder why they didn't do that in other versions?
sigh .... I wish this was coming out sooner rather than wait till 2012.

@Victoria - I know, I really want it now too. However, on the plus side of waiting maybe the game will be even better - and at least we've got some spare time to ourselves at the moment, which will go out the window once it comes.

You know what I'd like to see in AC 3DS? I'd like it if they were able to use you system memory to identify other games you've played and then incorporate elements from those into your Animal Crossing game. Nothing major, but maybe things like patterns, furniture sets, outfits, maybe even mini-games based on other games you've played on your 3DS. I think that would really personalize the experience that much more.

This has to be one of the best ideas I've seen. What about games that were released after Animal Crossing 3DS, though? I guess Nintendo would have to send out updates or something. Imagine turning on Animal Crossing and opening your mailbox, and viola, a brand new Tanooki suit. All because you played Super Mario Land 3D. Or a Master Sword that could be used to cut weeds instead of using your bare hands, equipped like every other item, gotten by playing Ocarina of Time 3D. (Think shovel, etc.)
I know. What about a Kart piece of furniture for playing Mario Kart 7... One you can sit in, and it makes Mario Kart noises?!
Great. Now I`m all excited for something that won`t even happen.

New tidbits revealed:
-Tom Nook has changed careers. He's now a real estate agent and while place your house anywhere in town (thus is why he followed the girl in the video)
-You'll have a workshop to customize furniture.
-Streetpass mode is used for the Exhibit Hall. Here, you'll be able to see the houses of people you pass by through streetpass.
-As suspected, clothing, pants etc. will be fully customizable. Girls can wear shorts, pants and skirts... And guys can also wear.. skirts if that tickles their fancy.
-Character models were changed (obviously), Squirrels are the shortest while bears are the tallest/biggest.
-Emphasis of customizing your town. This includes exterior of your house such as the mailbox.
That's what I dug up so far thanks to someone named reddit who translated the interview. I wish I can post it here but I'm still using my phone to come here.
Looks like this is what ACCF was supposed to be because I remember the director talking about building furniture and other neat tidbits. This game is shaping up splendidly.

That all sounds absolutely amazing! Thanks for posting. I wonder though, if not Tom Nook, then who is gonna be selling furniture and stuff? Well whatever. I really like how StreetPass is sounding too. I just hope they include some type of online auction type of thing. How amazing would it be to have a computer in your house that you could log onto and post an item and sell it ebay style. All players will be able to browse everything available. I think that is what the Auction House from CF SHOULD have been. Either way, this game appears to be shaping up amazingly well. Can't wait to play it!

Timmy and Tommy could run Nook's shop, so that's a possibility. The city in this game could be the central place to purchase furniture and other things. We're just going to have to wait for solid details, but judging from the concept map, the city looks much bigger in scale. And there seems to be small islands south with houses and it seems like some sort of boat dock station if I'm not mistaken.

@DuneyThat is an awesome idea! I remember Super Smash Bros. Melee had a similar feature. If you had certain save files on your memory card you unlocked special trophies. I really hope this idea is included.@komicturtle92I'm glad to hear new features are making it's way into the 3DS version. This game is really shaping up to be an amazing sequel.

I can say the source is from an Animal Crossing fansite in the forums that is taken directly from the Developer Roundtable video. I believe you can find it on Youtube and surely, the whole translation should be in the description or just added to the video. Watching the video with what I read, it matched up perfectly. I cannot direct link because of being on the phone. But you should find it easy.

I'm really glad to see the new clothing options. When I play the Wii version it does seem weird and out of place that you can only wear shorts and short sleeve shirts when there's a snowstorm outside. Even the "sweaters" are short sleeved. After reading about all the changes coming to the 3DS version I think it's shaping up to be pretty revolutionary for the series. I wonder if there's going to be a use for Tom Nook after he helps you get your house. You would think so, considering how important he is in the series.
