If you were given the keys to your own community, what would you do? Go fishing, collect shells or watch fireworks with friends? Build a snowman, exchange presents with family or decorate your house for the holidays? Take a trip to the city, go on a shopping spree or visit friends from all over the globe? In Animal Crossing: City Folk, life moves at a relaxed pace, but the world brims with endless possibilities.
You make the whole story, as you and up to three other players move into a town and just live life. Befriend your animal neighbors, decorate your house with cool furnishings, fill up your wardrobe, get to know the local wildlife, hop on a bus to visit the new city and just explore the world. There are a million different ways to play. Every charming animal character has a personality: some are grouches while others are chatterboxes. And there's no final goal or high score to hit. The game keeps going for as long as you want to play, and your town will always be there when you return. Move into town, buy a house and then do whatever you want. Time and seasons pass as they do in the real world, so there's always something different happening. Collect more than 2,400 items, go fishing for rare and interesting fish, catch all kind of cool bugs, dig up dinosaur fossils and buried treasure, hang out with other players or spend the day in the city. There's so much to do, and you have all the time in the world to explore it all.
DS Suitcase Mode
The DS Suitcase lets you carry your character from your Wii console to a friend's, thus giving people without an Internet connection the ability to experience multiplayer modes. Additionally, you can move your character from Animal Crossing: Wild World on Nintendo DS and play as him/her in Animal Crossing: City Folk.
Key Game Features
- There's Always Something New To Do: In the living, breathing world of Animal Crossing: City Folk, days and seasons pass in real time, so there's always something to discover. Catch fireflies in the summer, go trick-or-treating on Halloween or hunt for eggs on Bunny Day. If you're in the mood for something a little faster paced, take a bus to a new urban city area that's unique to Animal Crossing: City Folk. There you can catch a show at the theater or check out the sales at Gracie's boutique. But if you don't show your face back home for too long, your neighbors will miss you.
- Play With and Hear Up to Four Friends: Up to four people from your household can live and work together to build the perfect town. Design clothes and patterns, write letters and post messages on the bulletin board for each other, or play online using your broadband connection and invite up to three friends to visit your town using Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. With the new optional Wii Speak microphone (sold separately), it's like you're all in the same room. The microphone sits atop the sensor bar and picks up the conversation of everyone in the room to encourage a more inclusive experience.
- Get to Know Your Neighbors: The heart of Animal Crossing: City Folk is building relationships with the animals in your town as well as with other players. Befriend your animal neighbors by exchanging letters, gifts and favors. Animals can also move from town to town, bringing their memories and stories from their old towns with them. And since animals are notoriously loose-lipped, they spill all the juicy details.
- Express Your Personal Style: Customize your town, your house and yourself by collecting bugs, fish, fossils, art, furniture, clothes and accessories. You can also go to the salon in the city to change your hairstyle and get a Mii makeover. Plus, if you design clothes in the tailor's shop, animals will wear them and maybe even bring them to other towns.
Familiar faces such as K.K. Slider, Tom Nook, Blathers and Mr. Resetti all appear, as well as a bunch of new characters like Festivale host Pavé and Bug-Off judge Bud. Many characters who occasionally visited your town in previous Animal Crossing games have now set up permanent shop in the city, so you can see them anytime.
Special Powers, Weapons, Moves & Features:
Use the Wii Remote pointer to type letters, use items, draw designs for clothing or wallpaper, drag clothing or items onto your characters, interact with animals or objects, or lead your character around the world. Use Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection to hang out in real time with up to three of your friends. You can also send them e-mails and text messages from the game. Play at different times of the year to experience different activities, holidays and seasons. And when visiting a friend in another country, experience the holidays native to their culture.
Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection
Up to four people can play together in real time via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. The host opens his or her gate to allow friends into the town, where they can perform all sorts of activities: fish, write letters to townsfolk, shop at the store, swap items, play hide-and-seek ... anything. Up to four players can interact in real-time, communicating via text chat, mic chat and emoticons.
Using WiiConnect24, you can buy and sell items to friends by participating in silent auctions, view actual players' homes in the Happy Room Academy office or send letters to other players' towns.

If you've played Animal Crossing before then you know the drill - you buy a small house and work for the local entrepreneur to pay off your mortgage - then you get a bigger house! Along the way you decorate, make friends, plant trees (and shake trees!), go fishing, etc. Only this time you also have the option of catching a bus to 'the city' where there are extra venues to visit and a cinema.
The controls seemed a bit fiddly - but that's because I attempted to the play the game just using the wiimote, which is an option - but the game is best played with the nunchuck as well which makes moving around far more natural.
If you already have a well established DS Animal Crossing game and want to keep your character, then you can 'move' the character and duplicate them on the Wii - although I haven't done this - it appears to be pretty easy and uses the WiFi capabilities of both machines.
Animal Crossing for the Wii looks great - but not much different to the DS version. Fans of the series will no doubt love this game, in fact I think that most people would enjoy playing around in their own world but there doesn't really seem to be much new. Apart from a few extra features and additional items, you get the feeling that you've been there and seen it all before.
Alas I've not played around with the WiFi connection yet, and that's perhaps where the Wii version will excel. If you have friends with the game then they can come round and visit your virtual house without spending a fortune on petrol.Read more ›
Getting the bus into the city is great, as now all the characters you usually only see every now and then (Gracie, Redd, Shrunk, Lyle, Katrina...) are all waiting for you. Gracie has a boutique which charges extortionate prices, Shrunk stars in a rubbish theatre show and Katrina once again rips you off via her cryptic 'palm-readings'. There are also a bunch of characters you recognise as neighbours from the DS version floating around for you to chat to, such as Apollo, Poncho, etc.
You can also change your image with a 3,000 bell hairdo at Shampoodle or upload your Mii character on screen! I tried it before, and it looks really strange having your own face amongst all the animals! Alternatively, you can download your character from the DS version onto the screen, though you can only bring your furniture catalogue and name with you, not your house, bells, etc.
I have only been playing for an hour or two, but I thought I'd get my review in early for all those who are still unsure whether this version is worth buying. I'd certainly say that it is, and I'm sure it will be another massive hit for Nintendo.
ACWW, was an oasis for me. I loved it until about a week ago. It got boring for me. Just doing the same thing. Over and over again.
Now with Ac:cf (or Ac:lgttc to us)it isn't much different. I know what your thinking. This is bad, isn't it? Well actually no it isn't. Imagine if they changed one simple thing. It would change animal crossing as we know it so you can't really blame them for that. Well back to the game. I have decided to list the good things and bad and then a summary to make
it clear for everyone.
-The city- Who remembers waiting for months for Dr. Shrunk or Katrina well now they are all here (exept Pascal, Saharah and Wendell). No more waiting although it does take some of the fun out of it all. But, what the heck Gracie? £300,000 for a bed???!!!
-Characters- Everyone is back (including the monkeys and the octopie, plural of octopus btw.) and more. My favourite is Poppy! Look at her little face! This is good but you still have to face the ones you hate... like Bluebear and ... Bitty and ....... TANK!!!!
-Ds transfer- No this does not get rid of your character, it just copies it to your wii. Good if you have a full catalog and don't wanna lose it. But you cannot tranfer bell, flowers or items in your pocket. You gotta earn them. All over again.
- Wifi - Need I say more. Visit other towns and say hi to people, maybe have a chat or a game. Pretty useless if you don't have a computer or wifi. Well come to think of it you must have a computer if you are reading this.
- The town - It is more then double the ds one and you can choose your house. It has levels.Read more ›
It's hard for me to believe i havent even been playing Animal Crossing for a year yet. I started with Wild World in July last year, then got this one on the day it came out in December (thanks Amazon!) i also joined a fantastic site and have learnt so much about the game it feels like i've been playing longer.
Now, i love WW for my DS. I love the interaction with the animals, i also love waiting for a new townie and wondering who it will be. I love the small-ness (if that's a word) of my little, private town too, and the portability of it. i havent stopped playing it since i got AC-LGTTC. But this review isnt for WW so i will crack on...
Ok, the reason i didnt give LGTTC more than 3 1/2 is for quite a few reasons really. i was quite annoyed they didnt call it the US version which is simply City Folk. And they didnt make enough changes to the game. it's still the same old AC. Which for many people, i know, is good, but they could of changed simple things like the colour of the floor in the museum or changed colours in the town hall. Made little touches like that. The City itself is ok, but not something you need to visit all the time, it's quite a small area really. Only so much you can do there. The grass! Well that has made a lot of people not very happy! It wears away, a little thing Nintendo have named "Animal Tracks" it's supposed to help you have paths to the most frequented areas like Nooks. It's clearly not been tested out properly. What the developers forget is that to truly experience AC in all it's glory, you have to explore all of the town to get your fossils, take out the weeds, water flowers, plant trees, catch bugs, fish etc.Read more ›
