Welcome to the Animal Crossing: New Leaf thread!A place for those who would like to share stories, tips, QR and friend codes. Release Dates:Japan - November 8th 2012Korea - February 7th 2013US - June 9th 2013EU - June 12th 2013AUS - June 15th 2013 For those new to the series, Animal Crossing is a 'Slice of Life' game in which-- in this installment-- you play the role of Mayor to a city of animals. Each animal (There are lots!) has a chance of being randomly generated into your town (See: moving in) and has it's own personality and interacts with you and others in the town. You are able to expand upon your town, upgrade your home from it's humble beginnings as a tent to a full fledged mansion to decorate it as you please. There are a plethora of activities you can do in your town but I won't get too much into that; we'll just say designing, fishing, deep sea diving, bug catching, gardening and digging up artifacts to name a few. Through the use of friend codes you can visit each others towns via Wi-fi or linking up in real life. You can also share your own personal designs with others online by generating a unique QR code. Here's an example: At first glance you may dismiss Animal Crossing as nothing more than a simple childrens game-- and many who are now in love with the series likely thought the same thing at first-- but Animal Crossing will have you captivated for hours on end with its deeply customizable and wildly captivating gameplay. Not to mention the extremely charming and memorable music. I'm hoping this thread will serve as a place for Animal Crossing fans and newcomers alike to learn something new and share about the game. See you around!
