Animal Crossing General Discussion

9,041 posts in this topic

I'm debating, too, but for a different reason: Animal Crossing is cursed for me.

I've already said this like six times in this thread, but I lost my ACGC town to a memory card failure, and I lost my Wild World town's cartridge. I still have City Folk, but... that's City Folk.

If I get it via cartridge, I'll probably lose the cartridge eventually. But if I get it digitally, like I want to... I might be risking my entire 3DS.

I'm only going cart so I can resell, if I get bored of it.

I most likely won't though, all this new stuff seems too fun.

Oh, and here is a video of the Golden Slingshot.

There's a reason why the slingshot first appeared in Animal Crossing Wild World, and they still seem to not understand it. The DS's top screen provided a constant, clear view of the sky above the player's town, and made the slingshot an appealing item to include in the experience. City Folk and New Leaf do not have that, and so I'm wondering why bother including the item in the new game. It just doesn't fit.

Hello everyone and welcome to a new day! Bringing us one day closer to the release of ACNL outside of Japan, whenever that may be. Anyway, found some cool screenshots today. :3

Redd selling some sculptures. Iirc, the museum also takes these in with the paintings for the art exhibit. :3

A close-up of the solar panel. I still wonder if this has any uses other than making your town seem more green. shy;

If I'm not mistaken, I believe that is a Whale Shark in that tank. So it gives you a look at how big they are in houses. Anyway, I'm more interested in that football fish in the back that isn't in any water. Is it a stuffed copy or something? :U

I don't believe we have come across this fruit before. And thanks to Ferry and Carl, we now know it's called Persimmon. :3

An RPG-themed town. Nothing really special about it. I just thought it looked cool. :P

These are the three options you have to remodel your Town Hall. I'm really digging the last one. I like more modern architecture. :3

Lastly, here shows the player going to Harriet to get color contacts to change the eye color. So changing your eyes is definitely confirmed. It works like getting a new hairstyle - you have to answer some questions and the color is based on your answers. You can't get your hair cut and get colored contacts the same day, unfortunately.

Haven't heard of that before!

Also, according to Animal Crossing City, the US release date is May 1st, 2013.

Im not buying it though, as I can't find any news articles confirming it yet!

New theory on the orange fruit with the green top: it's unlikely to be the Kiwano because, let's face it, nobody cuts fruit while they're on a tree and leave it to rot until someone gets it. Anyone think it may be the persimmon?

Called it FIRST :B

Also, that doesn't look like a whale shark... that looks more like a small basking shark

They probably picked it up from GameStop's listing. That date lands on a Wednesday, and Nintendo traditionally only releases its retail games on Sundays, so I really doubt it's that along with their release date of March 31st for Fire Emblem Awakening.

After hitting the Googlemobile, it seems the Whale Shark is, indeed, unrealistically tiny [infant status nonwithstanding] and colored quite oddly.

Consider that we do still need to, you know, be able to catch them and hold them. I'm willing to give suspension of disbelief.

Agreed. Was surprised it was so small, but I guess it makes sense so we can actually hold it after catching it. I thought it would at least be bigger inside the house, so that's why I was surprised to see it was still small when placed in that screenshot. :P

Also, the music HERE reminds me of the Wii Shop music. Never had a DSi so can't judge from that. shy;

Hey, if we can carry space shuttles in our pocket, I don't find a whaleshark unrealistic. I WAS, however, expecting it to at least appear huge. There's still plenty of screen space to take up there.

A thought about the lantern fish/whale shark in house picture. The lantern fish looks like a lamp and if you look at the table, that's the one you get from the fishing contest, right? So I'd assume it'd be another reward from the contest.

Edit: last night I also decided on what my town's gonna be called. It'll be Turtlbay (if it's gonna be more than 8 letters restriction I'll add the 'e')

Same here.

Gamestop shouldn't be deceiving us!

Protip, guys: when a date has not been announced, and retailers give either the 1st, 15th, or 30th/31st as the date, it is going to be a placeholder date 99% of the time. Especially if said date is either January 1st or December 31st.

By the way, Nintendo occasionally releases games on Fridays (Xenoblade, Star Fox 64 3D - although this one may be due to September 11) and Mondays (Rhythm Heaven Fever, Last Specter) as well. Usually not Wednesdays, though.

      By The Krazy One
      This topic is to get my Youtube Channel out there, at least on here anyway. For those that don't know me I go by The Krazy One on here but by TKrazyO on Youtube. TKrazyO is The Krazy One shortened by taking the he ne out and squishing the remaining letters together.
       
      On my channel I mainly play games on Nintendo platforms (currently playing on the Wii U). Started out with DBZ Budokai Tenkaichi 2 on the Wii. I have a few DBZ related videos on there related to that game, the sequel and some drawings in paint I did that one time. There's a few WWE related videos on there too. Video game or Daniel Bryan related.
       
      Here's a link to my channel if you want to check it out: TKrazyO Youtube ChannelHere's my Twitch Channel: TKrazyO Twitch Channel
       
      I made it to my 200th video a couple weeks ago so I'll post it here. It also counts as an intro to my channel and lays out my plans in the near future. So give that a watch if you are interested.
       
       

      Just to jot this down if you decided not to watch the video above, these are some of the games I plan on doing playthroughs of in the future or some that I'm currently working on.

      Super Smash Bros. (Game Night): Super Smash Bros. Playlist
      Runbow Shut up PB
       
       
       
      These are games that I started that I want to go back to and finish. (i.e. my Unfinished Business series)
      Trauma Center: Second Opinion (Have Started): Trauma Center Unfinished Business Playlist
      Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (Have recorded some, haven't started editing)

      8Bit Hero
      Guacamelee
      Terraria: I Try Out Terraria
       
       
       
       
      I've put some links next to some of the games up there that I have content for already. Either linking to the playlist or a single video. I will consistently update this topic with recently uploaded/published videos. I don't know if I'll just edit it into the end of the OP and make an updated video post or if I'll post my latest video(s) in a new post. Suggestions are welcome on that. If I convinced you to check out the channel or any of my videos then I have done my job. If you'd like to subscribe, feel free. Totally up to you!
       
       
      If anyone has any ideas or suggestions for videos, my somewhat there commentary, or games I should play, feel free to share.

      TL;DR: I'm advertising my channel. I also advertised NSider2 in my 200th video. But this is goodbye for now.
