Platform:New Leaf Game

Product Description

Start a new life as mayor of your own town and create the perfect place to live.

It’s never easy moving to a new town. There are new friends to meet and new places to explore… but it’s even trickier when you happen to be the mayor! When you play Animal Crossing: New Leaf on the Nintendo 3DS Nintendo 3DS & Nintendo 2DS, you’ll be challenged to set up home in a new town shaped entirely by you. The game uses the same popular freeform gameplay from previous Animal Crossing games, which allows you to freely explore your territory without restriction. There are no specific goals to achieve, nor is there any story to follow. In fact, there isn’t even an ending! Instead, you’ll be challenged to simply enjoy yourself by getting to know your town and watching it grow and flourish on a day-to-day basis in real time! Animal Crossing: New Leaf sees you crowned mayor as a result of a bit of an accident. When you arrive, Isabelle the town clerk will reveal that you’ve been given the post and from there you can do whatever you please! Use your powers as the mayor to shape the town however you wish, whether this means building bridges, creating public works projects or laying down laws (or ordinances as they are known). With all this freedom, you could soon have the home and town of your dreams!

Enjoy Animal Crossing: New Leaf alone or with others, as up to four friends, family and even strangers can meet up in the game on a single Game Card when playing at different times, allowing you to share some of your experiences. You can also get together simultaneously with those who buy or download Animal Crossing: New Leaf for themselves either online or via Local Play. This means you can visit the island together, take on the many minigames or just hang around together wherever you like! Use StreetPass to share your home with visitors or head to the Happy Home Exhibition where you can check out what others have done with their pads. You can even travel to other people's towns online as you sleep when using the Dream Suite.

  • Enjoy in-game life with real-time play
  • Use your mayoral prowess to create the town of your dreams
  • Make friends with lots of new characters

I've never played Animal Crossing before, a friend recommended it to me in order to "shut me up". Let me explain; When I get a new game, on any system, I usually play it non stop, day after day, until I've finished it. Then I complain that I've got nothing to play. Lol.
My friend said, "get Animal Crossing, it's impossible to complete". Well, that remains to be seen, but I do get the point they were making.

The first few hours I spent walking around, picking things up, selling them, then picking more things up. Huh. Boring. "Is this it?" I thought. So I turned it off, and left it a few days. I told my friend, and they told me to turn it back on and have another look. "it might be different", they said.

So, begrudgingly, I had another go. There I was again, wandering around the beach collecting shells. Then I noticed that there was a new house. It had just appeared overnight. Suddenly, the penny dropped. This isn't a game in the traditional sense. It's a life-sim. A story being told as you go along. It evolves as you play.

A few weeks later and I am addicted. I've visited other islands to gather exotic fruit, I've sold some shirt designs in the shop, and I've just discovered that you can visit friends' towns/worlds also.

In short, this game is a revelation. It's the perfect tonic to today's fast paced, here today gone tomorrow gaming style.
I'm so glad I bought it, and it's the game I recommend to all my friends when they complain of "nothing to play". Lol

Buy it. You won't regret it.

Now when it comes to games, I get bored very quickly. I'm not a 'Gamer' type person. I just like the occasional hour now and then on a game once every couple of days.
With this game however, I have yet to put it down! There's always something to do, yet you don't HAVE to do alot of them, only some. So this game will fit a 'laid-back' player, or a 'all-in' player. After-all... You're the Mayor!

Here's just (some) of the things you can do in the game, to get 'Bells' (Money/Coins):
Shake Trees.
Hit Rocks with a Shovel.
Catch Fish and sell them.
Pick up Shells and sell them.
Dig up Fossils and sell them.
Sell Gifts, when you're given them.
(((Ofcourse you don't have to sell everything you get a-hold of, it's just an option to make money fast. You could Donate them too.)))

The game itself is just so magical! First off, you're the Mayor! There's always things you can do, or things to complete, in the game.
You can build up your house and decorate the inside and out with unique items. You can decorate and design your Town however you like. You can unlock new things to be able to do even more things. You can even change your character's appearance after a while. Then there's little jobs you're given by the Town's-People. Public Works Projects too. You can visit other Towns, or let people visit yours.
My point is, this game never gets boring. There's always things to do, or if you just want to be laid-back and have a relaxing game-play, there's that too!

This game makes you feel as if you're actually living in your own Town! That you're actually your own character! That you're actually living a life within the game! And this game is perfect for children and adults alike!

Once again, we have an amazing addition to an already amazing series of games. Animal Crossing has always been a favourite of many portable console gamers, and also Wii gamers with the game released on that console from this series. Each game is independent from the rest, meaning you can enter the series at any point and still fully enjoy what that game has to offer. The main focus of this game, as with other Animal Crossing games, is for it to serve as a sort of life simulator in a fictional world full of animals as intractable characters.

The game features many hobbies to get into, such as fishing, bug catching and item collecting. Most items you acquire in-game can be sold to one of the shops in order to make money, which can be spent on more items, such as furniture, clothing, tools and different types of paper to write letters on. These points are found in pretty much every Animal Crossing game there is, so why buy this one over the others? There are several reasons to choose this game:

To start with, there is a bit of an evolution over the previous games, where your character will act as mayor for your town, which allows you to change how the town runs and also if and where to build additional decorative elements in the town (such as a fountain, additional bridges and benches). This added level of freedom instantly made this game my favourite of the series.

The game feels like it plays well on the 3DS, with no frame rate drops, no crashes and not even a single bug or glitch found in my almost a year of owning this game (I have had it since March 2014). This makes for a very reliable purchase that has responsive and easily understandable controls.

The game feels as friendly as the last games, which has always been a big selling point.
