Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Recommended Posts

So, the switch version of Animal Crossing was announced earlier today.

Anyone else looking forward to the game? What kind of new features do you want?

 

Personally, I wish there was a simple way in-game that lets you collect the villagers you want and send off the ones you don't. Maybe once you meet certain requirements there can be an option to invite animals to your village, like in Pocket Camp.

I am SO EXCITED! :wub: I was one of the people that got kinda bummed when there wasn't an Animal Crossing Switch game announced at E3. I don't think they could've announced it in a better way than they did yesterday. Completely made my day.

I feel like this could be implemented in a way. There was the campsite in New Leaf, but you don't know when a villager's gonna show up, and the villager is completely random. Soft-resetting for the villager you want can be tiring and lengthy. 😧 I'm not sure how they'd make this work (or if they're planning on making the app interact with the game like they're having for Pokemon Go and Pokemon Let's Go), but if they do that might be interesting and also somewhat appreciated.

 

Regarding other new features, I know it would kinda take from the "daily" aspect of the game, but I'd kinda like for there to be some way to "freeze" the game. I haven't gotten into my New Leaf save file since January, and I don't want to go back to it without rewinding my 2DS's clock lest I lose a villager I really love or something else happens. And sure, there's little tricks to be able to catch up your save file to current date (like going to the last save date, keep going forward a day checking your villagers until someone wants to move, telling them NOT to move, then turning forward the date to the current day), but those can be kinda tedious? If there was an actual feature, it'd be great, but I don't know if they'd make that. I can dream. XD

YESSSS I am ready!! I was disappointed when they didn't announce any AC during E3 so I'm super glad. ALSO Isabelle is joining Smash-I do hope this doesn't mean she won't be in the new game though I love her so much. I never played the old AC and only the DS ones so I'm wondering how it will be on the Switch.

Also guess this means we won't have QR codes anymore which is one of my fave parts of ACNL-all those cute outfits. I personally don't care too much for the campsite incorporation in New Leaf and I thought Pocket Camp was okay (I mean it's an app so...but my sister still plays it quite frequently). 

 

I definitely wish there were easier ways to get rid of villagers-the amount of times I've attacked them with my net to no avail...why won't they leave T^T

I'm excited about that, too!! She looks so cute in Smash ah ;^; ❤️ Also, I've only played New Leaf, so I don't know what the other games had for features.

 

Oh, man. Didn't even think about QR codes. I'd hope we would have them, and if not then some variation of. 😕 Those were cute! I liked making my own outfits.

I've always taken the "ignore" route, but even then, it took MONTHS for the villager to leave. :( Hoping for that to get easier? Except not the villagers I want to keep. If it's easier to lose the villagers I love, too, then I don't know if I want it...

Yes, New Leaf's clothes-making definitely needs to stay. I remember being disappointed in Wild World that the necktie+suit pattern I made ended up giving me four ties around my body when I wore it... x'D

Oh great, now the evil Nook family gets another chance at my hard-earned Bells! Darn you, Nook!

 

I am pumped. Seriously pumped. Can't wait. :)

Oh ignoring never works for me but then actively messing with them doesn't either

The only ones that ever want to leave are the ones I want to stay T^T
Oh yeah, just a way that makes it easier to get rid of the ones you don't want

Used to think that reporting them to Isabelle would help get rid of them but nope

Though there is a funny comic someone drew of her washing misbehaving villagers' mouths with soup XD

Oh no LOL
I don't even bother with making my own clothes, I just use the ones people post since they're like 20x better at it and I can't be bothered with tutorials.

When my sister heard Isabelle was going to be in smash, she was like 'what if Tom Nook was in it?' and I told her there's no way he would spend time fooling around, he's too busy stealing all our bells XD

 

Fun fact: the icon I use for the guest account on my Switch is Tom Nook XD

I'm really looking forward to the new Animal Crossing game! I got into New Leaf pretty late but I've enjoyed it a lot so it's exciting to have more soon(ish). Maybe I'll even end up buying a Switch just for Animal Crossing, who knows. :o

I am 100% looking forward to it. I hope they include an option to move around villager houses, maybe though some type of zoning system. Being able to select your skin tone and body type is kind of a must for any modern game that offers character customization, and I would be surprised if they didn't include this for 2019. New villagers, bugs, fish, plants, etc are always nice too. Overall, I'm just excited to start a new town 🎈

Unfortunately, I haven't seen one anywhere. I'm also impatient for a release date, hopefully it'll be announced soon!

I'd love to be able to send mail to friends in other towns via wifi. Sure, in NL we could play together with Club Tortimer, but there's just something about the thought of surprising my friend with a gift and kind letter in the mail. Maybe a limit could be set to prevent spam? Idk, it's just a small thing I'd love to have.

I bought the Wolf Link amiibo for BotW; they'd better bring back the amiibo villager system for the switch AC.

Edited the title since they announced the game's title. The delay to 3.20.2020 is a bummer, but I'm excited by all of the new footage. Animals can wear sleeved clothes and dresses now!

I'm saddened to learn Resetti lost his job. He's been an AC staple since the beginning. I'm hopeful that by pushing the release date back, they'll have enough time to polish it into the diamond it could be.

I am SO EXCITED for it. I'm really looking forward to all the updates, and the game seriously looks gorgeous. I love the simple little touches like the light changing through the day, and leaves blowing in the wind. It's small, but it really makes a difference in how this game looks especially compared to New Leaf.

The game looks really promising, it seems like it'll have all kinds of interesting things to do! I'm looking forward to seeing new items too, especially clothing.

I also like that the animals' clothes also have sleeves now. :D

I badly want Wolf Link to make a reappearance. My last AC game was Wild World so I missed out. They're saying it's likely to support amiibo figures and cards so I'm holding out hope.
