What are the chances this game is going to be radically different? Anyone expect any big changes? Big skyscrapers? Like an Animal Crossing Sim City?

Hope they don't have microtransactions.

8 things I always wanted from Animal Crossing

1. Full Customization

I'm all for total freedom in having a custom town where you can place anything the way you want, from furniture being useable on the streets to movable buildings and terraforming rivers and hills (with help of the Resetti crew.)

2. NPC Personalities

I always wanted to have the neighbours be more distinct from each other, as many of them shared personalities, they were essentially clones. I know it's hard to do for a game with like 300 different neighbours as the game in its current form is already the text-heaviest game Nintendo has ever made (and translated into 10 different languages). But anyway, that's what we want, no more clones.

3. NPC Interactivity

Hitting them on the head with a net and talking to them until they repeat lines got boring very fast. Writing them letters was ok but we need a deeper artificial intelligence answering to make it exciting again. What we also need is tons of options to interact with the neighbours, like asking them to play games with you and excercises, or doing fishing and bug contests, challenges, home reviews, parties, sales, etc. And also have each of them have a personal daily or weekly routine with their own little quest/problem that you can follow and solve in realtime.

4. Full Creativity

The new Animal Crossing for Switch should definately add most of the ideas found in Happy Home Designer. Add everything we already have. In fact Animal Crossing can also take a few ideas found in Minecraft and The Sims. Let's create our own houses and sets of furniture with selfmade designs and textures.

5. Online Restrictions

In your village you should be able to disable certain functions for online visitors like running, or using the axe, or leaving town with stolen items, etc.

6. Tons of Content
Give us hundreds of different fishies, insects, and thousands of furniture items to collect. Give us things to do online: multiplayer modes for fishing and football, minigames, bring back some NES games with 2 player online, item auctions, and villager "trading".

7. Free Updates

No DLC or microtransactions.

8. Unlimited Storage

Let me have enough space to store all regular items at least once, and let me have more than enough room for all the custom made pieces as well.

I never played New Leaf. I was waiting for the Wii U version that never came. I have played like 500 hours on each the N64, Gamecube, DS, and Wii game. So if New Leaf already has some of the things I mentioned you can now spoil them to me.

Reggie recently said in an interview that he thinks that microtransactions get too bad of a rep, and that Nintendo is considering adding them in future games, as long as they are available in other ways.

That's something I had hoped to forget until you mentioned microtransactions. Animal Crossing + Microtransactions is a match made in hell. That's why I won't touch Pocket Camp anymore. It moved from innocuous microtransactions for those who were impatient, to full-out RNG lootboxes.

My Hopes

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer
1. bring back HHD's idea of letting us add furniture and stuff for the villagers again, ( i honestly liked that idea.)
2. let us not only customize ourself. but, the villagers as well. (EG: Clothes, Glasses, Hair Styles?,)
3. Bring back the Shop, Cafe, and Concert again. the Shop and Cafe Could let us have ways to earn bells, although, make it more unique for the Main Switch Animal Crossing game instead of a port version of it from HHD.

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp
1. OK Motors should return with new ideas for the switch version.

Animal Crossing
1. have the gyroid return with the option of trading items, messages, and all that stuff.

Switch
1. Make it where we can move the Villager anywhere we want to.
2. Public Work Project
3. More New Furniture
4. More New Shops.
5. New Tools? (Can't think of any in top of my head.)
6. Local Coop, would beat neat
7. A Nintendo Gamecube Furniture that let's us play the Original Animal Crossing on Gamecube for Switch. it could take alot of work (and far fetched as well too ) to have it running on switch. but, it would be a neat idea for us fans who loves the old game, although they might cut out the NES games from the switch port of it.
8. Move it up to 15-20 villagers for 1 Town. (15, was from the Original Animal Crossing)

What is likely Coming back.
1. The Holidays/Tournaments etc.
2. HHD Moving Furniture element from Welcome Home Amiibo update.
3. The Original tools from all main Animal Crossing
4. the Extra Storage from Welcome Home Amiibo update.
5. Timmy and Tommy running Nook's store again
6. the Customize furniture/clothes.
7. Reese and Cyrus (please don't have him unlock again from NL. )
8. Public Work Projects (i'd be surprise if those don't return from NL.)
9. Bugs, Fishes, Fossils and Gyroids
10. House Upgrades
11. Store Upgrades
12. Some Unlocks. (Haircut, other stores etc.)
13. Main Street from New Leaf.
14. Being Mayor again.
15. The Island

In theory you can limit where villagers move in by placing tiles. (New Leaf)

From what I heard, villagers added by amiibo card don't move over tiles.

I think that was more an exploit of game mechanics than a feature. It would great if the next Animal Crossing has town planning tools that allow you determine where residents are allowed to move to. Maybe a limited number of zones that can be declared "off limits" so the animals won't build houses there, but you'll still have that organic feeling of a town that's always changing.

@Mountain_Man it was definitely intended on their part, since regular villagers don’t check for tiles before placing their house.

The Most Important things for Villager is .....
NO MORE Move Out by themself.
Instead, we can keep them Forever or we can Kick their butt if we don't like them anymore, just like on MySims Wii.

Pssst....
Don't forget MySims Wii ideas, that you can customize the looking of furnitures.

Oooo, this sounds nice. While we're at it, why not add some mini-games, like toy car racing, balloon fighter person trying to cross over somewhere while others use sling shots to shot them down, haunted house where its "ghosts" vs. busters!

I swear if the amiibo don't do crap I'll be pissed. I have all the AC amiibo, and I need them to be useful.

There are roughly a dozen AC amiibo and while they are nice looking, I actually want them to have a use. There are so many possibilities for them.

Really as I said in general this game needs to blow all previous games out of the water. It needs to be what smash bros. Ultimate is to the smash bros. games, just insane amounts of stuff. I question in some ways how long they may have been making the game thus far. Since a year ago? Since the launch of the switch? Was it started as a WiiU project years ago? It is hard to say.

All the ideas people have here seem obvious too. I mean between pocket camp and happy home designer, I feel like they were testing new features to add to the main game in some ways. It should have all the HHD stuff for sure. I even suspect they may do something like global missions the way pokemon did in Sun/Moon, and those were a cool idea(too bad it was executed so terribly).

I think they will tie in every feature of past games and all items. Yes, even the NES emulators. I mean, if we get them as part of the online service, why not allow them in game to play with friends in AC online if you both have access? Seems obvious. I think it is ALL coming back and being fleshed out more. Even the city I think will be made much better. I even expect the tropical island to be expanded upon and have a villa there you can customize too plus new island minigames.

Options are there, they must deliver.

Perhaps my biggest disappointment with New Leaf is that the animals almost NEVER speak to each other. In the Wii/DS games, this was quite a frequent occurrence (and pushing animals into another would usually cause them to initiate conversation). The conversions were usually hilarious and may result in other events taking place.

To date, I have probably only ever witnessed two or three NPC conversations in New Leaf (in spite of my efforts), which is pathetic.

It also got rid of most of the npc chatter, like Blather's bits about the things you donate and the little conversations him and Tom Nook would have with you on certain days.

In general I think I also prefer it when the stores and museum are in the town. ReTail was nice and all, but it's no Nook's Cranny.
