Reactions to the trailer and Treehouse Live segment for Animal Crossing: New Horizons have been mixed, both between different people and within the minds of most individual people, but I think that everyone can find at least one thing toward which they are at least optimistic and one thing about which they are at least skeptical. With that in mind, I'm interested to hear what everyone's favorite and least favorite pieces of information that we received today are.

Personally, my favorite revelation is the expansion of multiplayer play, in particular the option to have up to eight players in a town at once. It also looks like it will be possible to have multiple residents of a town play at once with the same copy of the game (a feature I would have liked in City Folk!), but I'm a bit confused about what the role of the "host" is as shown in the gameplay footage, so I'm withholding judgment on that for now.

There are also plenty of things that I'm skeptical about, primarily the way tools appear to work in this game. The one specific thing that concerns me the most is something that was mostly skimmed over: the introduction of bait for fishing. I'm hoping that it will be an optional feature - perhaps using bait will increase the window of time that you have to reel in a catch. I still don't think I like that feature, but it's preferable to bait being required to catch fish.

I think the purpose of the leader in multiplayer is the camera follows them, since there's no split screen. it also looks like they get to do certain tasks (?) while other players are more limited

I think the things I'm most worried about is how much shopping will still exist in the game. I don't hate the idea of crafting, but I hope it doesn't replace all the shop keepers. I like going on every day and checking the stores. I'm also wondering how patterns will work in the game, since the higher resolution means that patterns at the current size might look pixel-y. I'm cautiously optimistic that we'll get massively improved pattern tools but we'll see.

things I'm excited about is like,,, everything else I guess it looks super neat, I like the new weeds, I like that animal villagers have sleeves, I like the lighting and shadows. I dunno just everything.

I most definitely like the fact that the island? or land is super customizable. I love how it's  mostly ACNL with a lowkey pocket leaf twist. I honestly think it's going to be a good game! The quality looks good. Sucks that the release is in a year

Favorite: The option of using furniture outside.

Least favorite: Collecting building materials. I am hoping this is just in the beginning or a way of earning extra bells and not something we have to constantly do.

^yeah that's something I'm hoping for too. kind of like how in the very start of the games now, you sell everything you can get your hands on, but after a while you start ignoring seashells and cheap bugs and fish. hopefully this crafting mechanic is most useful in the beginning, but more options open up as you build more things.

From the Treehouse it looks like you can buy from Timmy or Tommy in the tent, it looks like you can unlock more shops or anything like that.

My assumption is you'll unlock specific small shops on the island then eventually have a plane or boat to go to the mainland which is a vast city for minigames, big shops, etc.

I love collecting material and crafting stuff, so that's right up my street. My current favorite game is My Time at Portia, and my next major game is Dragon Quest Builders 2, so this is like a more relaxed entry. I also love the implication that you can develop the island any way you'd like, so I'll probably make an island on another user with no residents. My own private paradise...

I dislike Nook's base. They mentioned you can move your tent, so hopefully you can move or redesign it (totally looks like there's room for expansion, but it's a pretty big area). If there's an option to remove it completely eventually, like having your own crafting station, then I'll give serious thought to a private island.

The ability to place things outside and create actual paths is very interesting to me. Tons of potential for town design there.

I'm kinda meh about still having a fairly small inventory though (at least it's up to 20 slots now, I guess). Can't wait to get an inventory is full message all the time now that all these crafting materials exist...

"like having your own crafting station"
Riesz : part of the trailer shows the player with an outdoor workbench right near their house, and Nook is nowhere to be seen! So this may be a thing.

Anyway, my favorite parts:

There's so many! But I'll say the outdoor decorating. It'll really bring personality to the towns.

My least favorite:

The tools look like they'll still take up inventory space. I was hoping they'd make a separate tool pocket. But it is in an early state still, so they may fix that.

Favourite thing: Oh man, there's so much I keep realizing when I look back at the trailer. Tiered towns are back, the seasons look so amazing, and there's so much nature now, it's really hard to decide. I think my favourite thing is either the new art style and the graphics in general, or being able to have 4 player local multiplayer. My school has free periods for the last hour every Tuesday and Thursday, so I finally can play something else besides Smash or Let's Go with my friends. (Really though, the best thing is that the game is so not New Leaf).

Least favourite: Probably the crafting, but from the Treehouse gameplay, it looks to be largely or completely optional, so it's not even a problem for me. Crafting will be pretty useful with getting specific furniture though.

Favorite: Placing items outside. I am SO looking forward to creating yards and parks and gardens and little scenic areas. I also love the path tool and wonder if there will be tools for other kinds of paths and if we can still use patterns to decorate the ground outside. I am hoping we have some way to choose where new villagers move in so their houses don't mess up the outdoor spaces I create (or I at least don't lose my items and flowers when they move in on top of them!) And I am wondering if we get to choose where shops and other buildings are built. I'd LOVE that!

I'm also really looking forward to crafting. I know reactions are mixed on this, but I LOVE crafting in games so I'm sure I will get really into the crafting in this. I'm anticipating my town will be decorated in a kind of rustic outdoorsy style with a lot of crafted items. I've always joked that my dream game would be Animal Crossing with crafting. I think this was a smart move on Nintendo's part and will appeal to a lot of people.

Least Favorite: Okay, this is going to sound silly, but the grass texture. It looks really flat, with hints of the classic triangle texture in places, but overall really flat. The character proportions seem a little taller, too. The art direction overall feels a little less cartoony, and more sleek/minimalistic and that really doesn't fit Animal Crossing, for me. Animal Crossing is supposed to be bright and whimsical. The changes they've made to the art style make it feel a little more generic.

Ard: Man, I hope so. I'll have to rewatch the trailers then. As for Nook not being seen, doesn't mean he isn't hidden.

I'm wondering if complete autonomy is possible. An empty, private getaway sounds like a side goal for a different user.

If this multiplayer function would've worked back in the day, how many more hours I would've had instead of watching my older brother play. This feature is a win for younger siblings everywhere  

I'm scared about the crafting and item collection as somebody said though, hopefully, it's implemented correctly and not in an annoying fashion!

My favorite revelation so far is actually the game's premise! I've been seeing people say that they think our characters will be mayors again in the new game, but I was always pretty "meh" about that idea. I loved being the mayor and think it was an excellent choice by Nintendo, but I wouldn't want to be mayor in whatever game came after New Leaf, because it'd be like wait-- was I really mistaken for being the mayor again?? Seriously???

Instead, I always thought mayor-adjacent positions would be the way to go for future installments. So when Pocket Camp came out and your character had the camp manager title instead of the mayor title, I thought that was really clever and I liked that a lot.

Being mayor was really cool, but it did come with its limitations. Now that we're essentially the Founder of this little deserted island, it offers a lot more freedom of design and limitless possibilities for how any individual player can grow and shape their island in accordance to their vision! It's going to be so amazing seeing what people can come up with that it almost makes the wait unbearable for me haha

My least favorite thing? Well, we haven't seen a complete tour of the island, but looking at the minimap from the Treehouse stream, it looks to be about the same size as New Leaf's town -- which I thought was a decent size, don't get me wrong -- but I would love to see a larger village, even just slightly. Since there doesn't appear to be a main street, once we fulfill the requirements to start bringing in shops and other structures to the island, along with villager homes and other player character houses, I just worry that it might feel a bit too cramped.

Overall, I super like what their doing with New Horizons and can't wait to see more of it in the 9 months we have until release!

Favorite: Almost everything new about New Horizons! From crafting to placing objects anywhere, to even seeing wind blowing through trees, it's shaping up to look like a terrific game.

Least Favorite: Yesterday, it was announced "Resetti lost his job" because the game will now support auto-saving. I'm personally not a fan, as there are a few instances where I feel I would want to reset my game. I could definitely understand that they want to keep things more realistic, so I guess it's not too bad.

I'm concerned about this too. It's not tiny but it feels pretty small. I usually like the shops all spread out but if possible I might bunch all of mine together in a corner to make my island feel bigger.

I really hope they keep Nook’s store and things like Nook’s Cranny can be built up. I love the idea of Co-Op, but the way it was shown at treehouse was underwhelming. My favorite thing by far was the ability to place furniture outside. There’s going to be endless possibilities, which is awesome. Paths of course are great, hopefully they’re customizable. I’m really looking forward to the idea of building shops & places up from nothing (like the museum & nook’s shops) so hopefully that’s what NH brings. Just wish Co-Op was split screen and not reliant on whoever the host was.

Speaking of that, online will work similarly to NL’s online right? Do your own thing in someone’s town without having to stay on the same screen/have the same tool out?

Bobbanana I'm sure the online will work similarly to how it does in NL! Based on the clip at the end of the e3 trailer, everyone has their own separate screen like we're used to. It'd be insane to force 8 players to all stay on the same screen as another player I'm positive that's why they limited the local co-op to 4 players too haha.

Favourite things

- Clothes - they move in the wind, dresses look more real, jumpers actually look knitted.  I think I'll be
  changing outfit more than 4 times a year for once!

- Wreaths on doors - yay we can put a wreath on a door!

- Placing furniture outside - Finally!

- Flowers - look better (see the pansies!), they grow , and it seems if you pick a flower the plant is still
  there.  That would be amazing for Hybrids!

- Vaulting rivers - I hope you can fall in sometimes, that would be amusing

- Crafting!  I love collecting things and crafting in games.


Least Favourite things

- Island looks a bit small.  However maybe you can expand onto another one?  Buy an island to plonk shops
  on?  I can see Nook selling us another island for 1 million bells or something.
