Return of the thieving raccoon

It’s likely that before the archaic and newly-retired Mayor Tortimer sailed off into the sunset he turned to the fresh-faced Mayor-to-be beside him and whispered, “Remember, you’re only a Mayor, not a King, and this is a democracy, not a...

If it plays like the old ones then I'm not interested. There needs to be something significantly new otherwise I'm playing the same game again. Still a good game though.

|sf>I just noticed that the second picture shows a bench and a street lamp in the backdrop while the human stands outdoors. I wonder if those are randomly placed objects or if they're movable, ala purchased at Nook's or Red's shop. Considering how long the other games in the series took to reach North America, I suspect that this title won't be out in time for the machine's launch.

If they spice up this game and do some different things then fish, catch bugs, decorate your house, and pay off your house then i would be sold on buying this game.

Its funny how Nintendo has made animal crossing on Gamecube (even though it was originally an N64 design) Nintendo DS, and Wii... And yet the 3DS version looks by far the best! XD
Anyways, I really hope Nintendo will re-add some classic games in there, like NES or SNES games. Its been missing for far too long.
Day 1 purchase~

I Love Animal Crossing. If I Had 3 That Wouldnt Be GoodCuz I Have Wii And DS One. Im Planning To Sell My DS One Anyway :)! (I Might Keep it) But Im In Love With My Wii One! It Looks Quite Good. But.. The Humans Freak Me Out. Theyre Cute When Theyre Small :/

HapsNinFan said:

Maybe Actually, It Depends How Much Change There Is. They Should Make A Park And I heard About The Mayor. AND A RESTUARANT Where You Can Meet People From All Around TheWorld! And they should ask what city your from and connect it exactly to what weather it is!
and there should be a news channel about the latest in ac.
I Have Big Ideas For This :]

i never got the chance to play any of these games so i can wait to try this one, i remember watching a friend play the first animal crossing for the game cube and i liked how you could get an NES for your house in the game and play classic games like mach rider ect so i hope that carries over to the 3DS game

NocturnalYoshi said:

I'd take the gamestop date with a grain of salt. According to many things i read on the internet, you can't trust gamestop for official release dates. On almost all websites i've read, the release date for AC:3DS is still TBA. To be announced. But AC:3DS should be in our hands by early 2012 for sure. Winter holidays, maybe. Fall, perhaps, but unlikely. August, unfortunately, most likely not. But the wait won't be too long now. Besides patience is a virtue. All good things to those who wait ;)

Yeah I think that. I was watching an E3 clip and they said they don't even have the release date even though they have a release date for super mario 3d and mario kart. O_o But they did say it is coming out before 2012 so i'll keep my fingers crossed. :) But you are right most people don't trust gamestop and I've seen some huge delays with their timing.

I had wild world but that game was broken and I didn't feel like getting a new one since I came so far and didn't wanna do it all over again so now I only still have Animal Crossing Clock and Calculator and an Animal Crossing CD from club nintendo. I also have SSBB with of cource an Animal Crossing stage but yeah, I don't have any real Animal Crossing games now so I really can't wait to get this one :)

Granny789

Granny789 said:

Things I'd like to see in this game:
New furniture, fertilizer to restore the grass, maybe offered in regular-silver-and gold for varying degrees of effectiveness. Patterns not limited to palettes or less limited. More Pattern pocket storage so you can put down in town and store more. Each room has it's own storage compartments for dressers so upgrades gets you more storage. Mail storage with labels. Townies can wear hats. I could go on but I'll stop there. How many of these things do you think they've included in the new game?

I would love if they had a City lobby of some sort. So instead of searching the internet to exchange friend codes you could easily meet someone in an online lobby! Pretty much easier internet use :D

Well, AC (Animal Crossing) didn't come at the beginning of this month. :( I think GameStop is just making wrong guesses. I looked at a release date sheet in there last month, and AC's (US) release date was sometime around Christmas and Thanksgiving. Don't get your hopes up, though. I think this game will get a 2012 release.

@Shadow100: You should get an AC game! :) They're a lot of fun and laid-back when you want something like that. You see, AC games are a lot like real life. You have a house and can decorate it with furniture, you can talk to your neighbors (who are animals) you can listen to the musician K.K. Slider (a dog) and get CDs from him to play in stereos, there's a whole lot more to explain, and I can't explain it all. I'd recommend getting AC:CF (Animal Crossing: City Folk) for the Wii. It's got a few new features that weren't in the other two (Animal Crossing: Wild World for DS and Animal Crossing for Gamecube, not 3DS). It also has Wi-Fi, which you can use to visit other towns that other people from around the world live in. You just give them your AC:CF Friend Code, and they give you theirs and you can travel through the Town Gate to get to their town (note that this was in Wild Word, too). Anyway, check out some videos and see what you think of each AC game. I hope you like the AC series! :)

SynLovesBubbles said:

I'm kinda sad that it's not coming out sooner rather than later but i hope the developers don't get lazy with the structure of the game like in acww (Wild World) Not that i didn't like the previous versions, it's just that i think that they dont have enough to do. You just end up doing the same thing every day, like selling fruit. That's why I hope they put in more holidays or mabye even an island area where you can find special fruit and fossils. Also, I hope they add another tool to the game or make the town bigger or at least add another store. Perhaps a prize store...

Actually, I went to GameStop today and they said that this and Luigi's Mansion 2 would come out on May 2. They have been wrong before so I hope they're wrong again and AC3DS and LM2 comes out earlier [LM2 probably will, but I'm not sure about AC3DS]

This game looks amazing! I can't wait! There are definately some new features! Apparently There is a shopping mall and a train station, the map shows the town is as big as ever, so there's loads to do. I hope there's more hairstyles! Some people don't like the new bodies but i think it has a teenager vibe. So excited! hope it gets released soon!! x

I've been playing animal crossing since the gamecube hopefully this game will have more features than cityfolk had since the only real thing that changed in cityfolk was not sharing a house and going to the city.

keiselle21

#127

keiselle21 said:

There are loads of new features in this game the ones that i can think of now are:
-Clothes girls now have the option of top, bottoms or dress
-You can style the outside of your house
-You are now the mayor
-More interactive with charaters
-The town is much bigger with more features (look on youtube for a map) like a cafe and a massive beach
-You can swim
-You can customise your own furniture
and many more i can't think of right now

Well I gave in and just ordered AC: City Folk for Wii on Amazon.ca. It will let me learn what an AC game is and keep me busy till the 3DS one is out. I hope they make an announcement for this at E3.

I have 3DS games with great graphics like RE: Revelation, Mario Land 3D and Mario Kart 7 but this one seems so colorfull and pretty in it's own way that you just want to dive right in!

TheProfessor

#141

TheProfessor said:

I don't know if it's true or not but I saw on Youtube a video that showed a translation of the video that most people have downloaded to their 3DS systems and it looked like you could put your house wherever you wanted and you could build other buildings in the town while you are Mayor. Like I said, I have no idea if it is true or if someone was just playing around but it's another feature to (MAYBE) look forward to :D

It's been killing me ever since I heard about it! Some say for the US it was supposed to come out on May 2nd, but it did not. Others say this summer, or next spring, but we will have to wait and see. But like many others I believe it will come out this fall, because past ANIMAL CROSSING games have all been released in the fall. Also it will be ANIMAL CROSSING's 10th year anniversary, so why not. Hope this helps!!!!!!!!

Arr! I'm gonna rant some now!
I'm going to be so upset and disappointed if this turns out to be the same kind of incremental update like the Wii version! >:(
Nintendo needs to do a full sequal, change some things, make new gameplay elements and expand the experience! I don't see the point if it's going to be the same game but with some new features like ''shrubs and lamp posts'' and swimming!! (oh boy)
I loved Animal Crossing on Gamecube, and I bought the DS version but couldn't play it, because it was so similar. I'd already seen it.

Gamestops dates are ALWAYS wrong (Unless specified as confirmed). Don't expect it that late.

Here is my guess using Japan and EU and NA's TBD periods when they will come out.

JP: Late Sept/early oct
EU: Jan/Feb 2013
NA: Nov-Dec 2012.

It seems more likely in NA to come out earlier since they don't have to translate into a ton of random languages in the americas compared to Europe. But we will have to wait and see

check out the Japanese website for the game:
http://www.nintendo.co.jp/3ds/egdj/index.html
new things shown on the website are statues in the museum, some new villagers, the return of the lost and found, and TONS of screenshots, GIFs and a few videos. Also included is a FAQ that answers the question, "How many people can live in a village?", and a link to the Japanese twitter page with even more screenshots. It helps if you view the website in Google Chrome because it can translate the webpage for you. You're welcome.

The graphics look really nice. I like the lighting effect on the characters. I heard that a lot of customization features will be added to this installment, which is great for me, since I'm an Animal Crossing control freak. I will pick this one up day one.

Haven't played Animal Crossing since the Gamecube. Very excited about this game. It will be nice to catch up. Nintendo, why do you have such great games? and great consoles to play them on.

Hey guys, can we stop with the release date speculation, please? Let's not get each other's hopes up until Nintendo officially announces something :3

Heresy19

#251

Heresy19 said:

Well, it's not speculation, It's release date on our list is June 30th 2013. It's on a Sunday, wich most of top-ends Nintendo softwares usually goes on the market instead of the regular Tuesday.

We received the list 2 weeks ago. If anything changes, I'll let you guys know for sure :)

tanooki18 said:

@Heresy19 I'm surprised that a "manager" would say that. The game is expected to release in the US/Europe in Q2. The company "you work for" put June 30th because June 30th is the LAST day of Q2. Most companies do that so if the game is released earlier than expected, they don't get criticized for it. It will most definitely be released earlier than that.

@ljinkakidd
Well, the Animal Crossing series have gone since 2002. There's over a billion players who are addicted to this game, including me. I'd just recommend getting it because it seems to have more than 15 new features....

Cats said:

I preordered this when I preordered the 3ds... It was supposed to be a launch title. Just like Duke Nukem Forever, only time will tell if they've been actually doing any work on it. By now they should have a full scale MMO with a complex storyline, spaceships, an ecosystem that gets impacted by your every decision, and a way to build a business/empire. Oh, and bring back in-game games like the first one had.

Only time will tell if my expectations will be fulfilled. I'll hold my breath.

@tanooki18

Like I said in my previous comment, I'm the manager of the Superclub Vidéotron and it's the manager of the Microplay department that showed/told me the infos. So YES I'm a manager, I don't know why you're being such a douche with apostrophes but please just stop.

@ljinkakidd

It's a sandbox game: you do whatever you want. You can go fishing, digging fossils, catching bugs, buy/sell food and decorative ornaments/furnitures, you can design your clothing, invite your friends in your city, etc... On top of that, it's in real time (if it's 2am IRL, it's 2am in the game (unless you're cheating/playing another timeframe than yours)). Think of it like The Sims but your character don't need to sleep/pee/eat/be entertained all the fregggin time/get a job. Hope that helped :)

Add me: 4940-5458-4521. I will probably add all of you tomorrow because it's getting late over where I am. First of all, this is all I know about animal crossing up to now. There is going to be many shops and u will start off with a tent for your house and as you go up of course it gets bigger and pays off. You also get to customize your banner aka picket fence any color and other designs you may have to buy out of a shop... You also can now swim go on boats and when you get off you get to explore an island and buy stuff. Also, you can play minigames for major prizes. There is internet connection to cross to other peoples world but, it's already open as long as you and your friend have the same game. Now there is going to be a sleep speller person that makes u sleep and wander to a different town and stuff you like you may purchase. PLEASE COMMENT AND ADD ME TO YOUR FC AND I WILL RESPOND TOMORROW...

I'm reading the old comments from like last year and beyond on this page, and I've got to say. I feel really bad for the people who were anticipating this game's release long ago, I mean, there were numerous rumored and placeholder dates that people clung to, only to be shot down. Don't get me wrong, I've been waiting since 2010 like some, but I've basically ignored it(purposefully) until like last fall so I didn't get too hyped up too quickly only to have to wait for an unknown future release date. Some people must have had a torturous 3 years wait. Now, with 11 days to go, I'm SUPER DUPER EXCITED!

If you like what the game is from what you see so far, I suggest you look into getting it. Entertaining for months, or if you get really addicted, a few years at most.
