Animal Crossing 3DS: Six Things We Can't Wait To Do
Skirts? Shopping malls? Bring it on, Nintendo.
Animal Crossing 3DS debuts this year, and we look forward to spending an untold number of hours wandering around and running errands for what should be a needy community.
That said, this new title has enough content to separate itself from its portable predecessor, the immensely successful Animal Crossing: Wild World. On that note, here are the things we look forward to doing most.
Being the mayor
Yup, politics play some sort of role in Animal Crossing 3DS. We don't know the full extent of our mayoral duties, but if it includes booking events and making the town more appealing, that sounds fine to us.
Going for a swim
Finally, after years of Animal Crossing games, we can hit the beach (barefoot, by the way) and jump into the ocean to see how far we can swim. Who knows? Perhaps we'll reach new towns...or hit an invisible wall 40 feet from the shore.
Wearing a skirt...as a dude
Come on, don't deny it. You, like every guy that plays this game, will put his character in a skirt at least once just to see what the deal is, and also to find out if the animals react differently. We have a feeling they'll make snarky comments.
Hitting the mall
There's a shopping mall across the train tracks that may hold a wealth of possibilities. Will we be able to visit different stores and spend some bells? Will it sell both clothes and furniture? Perhaps the mall will serve as a hub world for meeting new players. We'll just have to wait and see.
Obsessing over our homes
From what we've heard, Nintendo has taken customization to a whole other level. Yes, you can move things around inside like usual, but you can also create furniture and mess with things outside houses, like fences, walls and mailboxes.
Speaking with Tom Nook
Turns out, Nook now works as a real estate agent. Just curious to interact with this guy and find out what role he'll play.
