Animal Crossing: New LeafTuesday, June 25, 2013
In my birthday haul post that I posted the other day, I told you about the fact that I got the Animal Crossing Nintendo 3DS with Animal Crossing: New Leaf already installed on it.
I'm really love it at the moment! But that's not surprising considering I'm as addicted to this Nintendo I was with my first one.
The thing I really love about this Nintendo DS is the design. The design that is on this DS is illustrated with apples, houses and the symbolic leaf of Animal Crossing, plus a mixture of little and big dots in between. The actual design of the console I feel is quite similar to the original Nintendo DS, but that may be slightly wrong since I was smaller/younger when I last used it.
The graphics for AC:NL are very similar to the other games, the main difference being that characters are slightly taller so that they can wear trousers/skirts. Also the game play in this Animal Crossing is slightly different compared to the last ones. In this game you play as the new mayor for the town, as the last one has retired to an exotic island. The island in this game is probably the biggest money maker in the entire game. This is because it is summer all year round there and it means you can catch, fish and dive all year round for 'Summer' bugs and fish. From this you can end up taking your findings back to the town and selling them off to Reese (the most I have received from her has been around 48,000 bells). Also, the town layout is very different with this one considering there is a main street. On the main street there is the museum, Able Sisters (with an accessory store beside it), Gardening Store, Club LOL, Happy Home Showcase, Photo Booth, Post Office, Shampoodle, Nookling Stores and Nooks Homes. Most of these shops unlock after a period of time and after completing certain tasks.
As well as getting the Nintendo DS, I got a case for it. The case is pretty big and fits the coin purse I used for all my old games, two games cases, a spare stylist, headphones and the pen stylist. The only thing it won't really fit is the cables for charging, connecting to a USB post and the car charger plugin. So if I take it anywhere I just need to leave them loose or need to find something big enough to fit everything but at the moment it's not too much of a problem.
Overall I am very pleased with this present and can feel myself becoming more addicted to it each day.
