KEY INFORMATION

If life were an endless vacation, 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.

• 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 blong, your neighbors will miss you.

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 invite up to three friends to visit your town using

Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. With the new WiiSpeak microphone, 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 sbring them to other towns.

I think they're alright. Have the same AC charm, just a bit smoother.

I have to say this is the biggest thing to come out of E3 this year for me. I love Animal Crossing...and for me they may have added enough new stuff to get me into this one.

This game is the only Nintendo thing Im excited about this E3.

 

It looks very impressive

This is looking far too similar to Wild World at the moment, so hopefully there's some more substantial additions to be announced before it comes out.

 

It's nice that they've improved upon the communication aspect — being able to message the Wii Message Board, e-mail addresses, or mobile phones directly — but personally I'm not a huge fan of voice chat. Here's hoping that actually getting online is less laborious then it is in WW.

 

I've always thought that Animal Crossing on the DS was a bit of a missed opportunity, and sadly this is looking like it might go the same way. I want to be able to have a frisbee match with people, play some two-player NES games in a friend's house, go on treasure hunts, etcetera.

 

I'm sure it will be a good game, and there's certainly plenty of time for Nintendo to unveil things to catch my interest, but at the moment I can't help but feel I've played this game twice already.

Looks decent, but surely once you've seen one AC, you've seen them all?

Wasn't too sure about the city aspect but it could work out quite well but in general there should be enough in the game to make me want it (enjoyed the first one) , may as well anyway , as there doesn't appear to be much else worth buying.

 

Wii speak should be great , and is probably the best game for Nintendo to try this with , especially as the likes of Strikers and Mario Kart usually involve many swearwords on my part.

Looks alright. Though I only really like the whole mic thing. Hope they use it in other games.

Im kinda disappointed. There doesnt seem to be enough changes to warrant a purchase for me. I dont like the 3D view much, I would prefer a normal top down view instead. And I would also prefer if it didnt look like they couldnt be arsed to update the visuals.

This is probably the only game mentioned during the conference that I'll buy. It looks awesome. My prediction was right except the city isn't MMO. Shame the microphone doesn't come with it though.

I have this theory that once you've played one AC game, you've played them all. Despite this, I've purchased both games in the series so far, and will likely get this too. It sounds great.
