Animal Crossing New Leaf

[adsense250itp]Animal Crossing: New Leaf launches in North America for the Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL on June 9. Nintendo released some details on the new features appearing on the first 3DS Animal Crossing.

The game is based on the real-world calendar making no two days in New Leaf the same. The new time system means that certain items are only available on certain times of day. Special events can only be experienced during specific in-game holidays as well.

New Leaf will offer fans of the series their first opportunity to act as the mayor of their own town. Players are now able to set rules and ordinances for their towns depending on how they play Animal Crossing: New Leaf. For instance, if players are mainly nocturnal they can set the hours on the shops to make sure they are open later. They will also have to decide which public works projects to sanction, ranging from setting clocks to building streetlamps (or possibly building an ice town).

Players are not just the mayor of their towns. They will also act as residents of their quaint village. This enables them to enjoy features common to the Animal Crossing franchise such as earning money to patron local shops, getting to know the neighborhood folks and collecting various items such as fossils and insects among other treasures that they can donate to the town’s museum for the townspeople to enjoy.

Tortimer, the previous mayor, will visit the town after a period of time and invite the player to come take a load off on the tropical island where he now resides. The tropical island is another new feature to the Animal Crossing series. Players and up to three friends can search the tropical island for unique items and take mini-vacations at Tortimer’s personal paradise. Along with finding special items, fans can tour the island, participate in mini-games or hop into a wetsuit and explore the ocean.

In addition, players can customize every item in the game from their homes and clothing to tons of furniture. There will be plenty of new types of items to throw a personal stamp on with clocks, shelves and lamps being customizable inside the house and new mailboxes, doors and other outdoor items. Also, the game adds custom fashion designs from the Able Sisters’ Tailor that can be turned into QR codes to share with other fans.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf releases on June 9 for Nintendo 3DS systems. On release day, a special limited edition Nintendo 3DS XL will be available with Animal Crossing: New Leaf pre-installed featuring New Leaf designs. The special bundle will retail for $219.99.
