Not happy about that at all. I mean, it being free means there's going to be micro-transactions no matter what, but you have to consider that there are so many items for Animal Crossing. Think about how many items they could put those prices on! It's going to be ridiculous...
Everybody's got a hungry heart
Lay down your money and you play your part
The game is a very dumbed down version of Animal Crossing with more set goals than doing whatever you want. It will be boring to most of us, but it will be designed to draw in people who have never played any AC game but do own a smartphone.
Then, they're going to announce Animal Crossing: NX, which will release on the same day as the NX. In some way, your progress on the phone game will transfer to AC:NX. I'm thinking your bells will transfer (up to a certain amount), and your items or at least your catalog. There will be some items that are AC:Mobile exclusive, some that are AC:NX exclusive, and some that are available in both. People will still want to play the mobile game to complete their catalogue, but it won't have nearly the same draw as AC:NX.
When you first download the game, there will be a handful of goals/tasks to complete, and item rewards for completing those. You will be able to buy other missions/goals/tasks to complete, which will give you new items. Some of those items are exclusive to AC:Mobile and those missions/goals/tasks, so you will pretty much need to pay to complete your catalog.
I doubt the part about NX is correct, but I'm guessing most of the rest is. I'm almost positive there will be a new main series game released, that there will be some sort of transfer between the games, and that there will be items exclusive to the mobile game. I'm hoping the microtransactions are just to make the game easier and that you can finish it without them, but I'm not sure how likely that is.
Let's go Gophers! Ski-U-Mah!
Sorry, I don't accept random FCRs.
I doubt that. They are probably going to just troll us again and it's going to be compatible with amiibo Festival or something.
I have hopes that another main series AC game gets released on console. I'm sick of playing on the 3DS's tiny screen with NL's way too bright graphics covering up the entire screen. Probably the only reason I would want another AC on console would be for the Wi-Fi, so...
Yeah all the new games now after Iwata is gone are kinda bad
which is why the last decent game that's a series of it's own by Nintendo was Splatoon
But seriously this and MiiTomo. I don't even know what Fire Emblem IS, I care too much about AC for it to be going this route, and the game that sent Tomodachi downhill was Americanized Tomodachi Collection ripoff garbage for the 3DS Tomodachi Life.
I think Nintendo is going downhill in general.
My Vo. & Gt. Impression:
*writes songs for popular rock band* *given sheet music* *can't read it*
It's not that. It's that they think they can just mess with us all of a sudden now that AC is a cash cow. Good thing the AC amiibo aren't selling well so the fans are telling Nintendo what we really want.
I play FE, it's really fun, but right now we need to focus on how most of Nintendo has gone downhill(everything except for Kirby and maybe a few little things).
