Welcome to the Animal Crossing 3DS Discussion thread. Here, we will update all the info we can find about Animal Crossing 3DS. Not much now, but hopefully we can get more info soon. Enjoy!
Genre: Communication, Player Count 1-4 -- The latest entry in the Animal Crossing series retains the premise of allowing you to experience life in a village. The game adds a new element where you become the village head and create your own village. The graphics promise to retain the look of the series while delivering a 3D feel. Source
In Animal Crossing 3DS, players move out on their own to live a life of ease in a village of walking, talking animals. But this time around, unexpected circumstances suddenly put the player in the role of Mayor in a town they've only just arrived in. With the help of the many unique townsfolk and one eager secretary, players will enjoy making their new town a better place for all to live in! Source
Animal Crossing 3DS has been confirmed to support the tag mode feature that was in Nintendogs. If if you own any compatible games all the communication happens automatically, even if the game cartridge isn't in, or if you're playing something else. You could go for a walk through town and later find that you've downloaded content or items, either just by passing a Wi-Fi hotspot, or making a local connection with another 3DS owner. Source
Also in 2012, Nintendo 3DS owners will be able to enjoy a new 3D instalment in the Animal Crossing franchise. This version will include a number of options for players not available in previous versions. These include the ability to become the head of the village and boost its development, a way to install certain items in the village to make its characteristics more personalised for each player and the ability to view homes of other players who are tagged through StreetPass connections.

There isn't much gameplay in the short, noninteractive trailer, but one thing is certain: This is the best-looking Animal Crossing yet, surpassing even the Wii version. The camera is zoomed in a lot closer to the main character, and the extra detail on your protagonist and the environment is immediately apparent. The trees look particularly impressive. The bark and leaves look much more vibrant, and the 3D effect when running through a forest is a treat. The inside of a home is just as stunning. You can now rotate the camera to get a look at everything you've collected. The items in the demo home included a model train set and a drinking water bird, and it was fun just to stare at them because they were so detailed. Source.

What we know so far:
- You can now wear Pants and Skirts
- There are different looking trees and houses
- The conversation window has been changed
- There are benches and lampposts outside. Maybe more....?
- Weeds will appear in your town again
- The beach isn't JUST at the bottom of town anymore
- Apples are confirmed to return
- Shovel will return. The axe might return too, as there is a tree stump in the background of one picture.
- Rosie, Bob, Kurt, and Filbert will return
- Unlike Wild World, the main screen looks to be the top screen. You can see this in this image. So, we don't know what will be on the bottom screen. I am guessing... it might be the inventory.
- There are now 4 flowers in a flower batch
- There is a different camera angle system in houses

Also, it seems the domain animalcrossing3ds.com has been bought by Nintendo. If you go there now, you go to the official Nintendo website. I can't wait for the site to go live! xD
