I just noticed this, but if you look at the far right on the full image of the box art, you can see Harvey from the New Leaf Welcome amiibo update standing by a dock on a separate island. You can also see other islands off in the distance. I'm guessing there will be other islands we can visit, maybe with different characters and amenities/facilities/activities/whatever?!

I've also noticed that some of the animal characters have shorts or a skirt on. That really makes me happy to see! Along with the glasses, which I didn't notice. I hope this means we can customize their looks, give them more items to wear.

This game looks so gorgeous and so fun! I can't wait until March 20th!!

Kiki also wears a long-sleeved shirt in one screenshot, as do two villagers in the winter one. That's a series first. I haven't noticed the shorts or skirts yet, but that's refreshing to hear about, if true! Shirts-only is a little...strange, especially since they're not frocks anymore like in CF-back.

Is it just me, or does it look like they fixed the cats' faces? Remember how they squished Kiki's adorable round face in NL and made her eyes ovals instead of circles? That doesn't seem to be the case now, unless I saw wrong.

And Kiki's glasses! Vesta with a broom!

I checked and I think you're right, her face looks more like it did in City Folk than New Leaf.

I guess it's just been special animals like Tom Nook and Isabelle and the dodo pilot(?) that have had shorts or a skirt or pants. And we've had that before in past games, so my excitement was probably premature. Sorry! But I'm really liking Tom Nook's shorts and how they look like actual shorts instead of just looking like they were painted on, ha ha.

Even if the regular animal islanders aren't given the option to wear pants or a full dress at first, I hope they add it in later on. I've always found it kind of strange how they don't wear pants. It's frustrating that they've always been stuck with sleeveless shirts no matter what kind of shirt you give them, too. Pocket Camp lets you change the animal camper outfits, but you can't give them bottoms, or at least you couldn't last time I played. And even if you give them a full-length dress, for example, it changes to a shirt or frock.

I just love all the little details! I didn't notice that about the long-sleeved shirts. Thanks for pointing that out, StarlitGlitch and DaBraxMan! Yay! And the glasses! Yes! I'm really torn right now. I want to see more information, but I also think it'd be fun just to wait and learn as I go from playing the game. I do hope we can unlock the museum right away or at least some sort of temporary museum. I know I'll want to start catching fish and bugs and digging up fossils from day 1, and I don't want to end up with a full inventory of the things!

What are you guys most excited for? I'm looking forward to playing it right this time. You know, making my town look nice, doing the museum, etc. I never was too good at traditional play.

I can't wait to set up a little camping area outside my tent!  I love the fact that we can now place items/furniture outside!

Also, to figure out how to get a nice little bungalow that I've seen in clips (versus having a tent).

Since we talked about Nintendo Tokyo before here I thought I'd mention that I went there a little over a week ago and bought a bunch of AC merch!

I tried to copy the link address to paste it here but iI can't get it to work so here are pictures of the store and what I bought (here and here) if you're interested.

I know what all merch is there so if you have any questions let me know! (the pot says that you can’t use fire with it, but it’s only written in Japanese for some reason) Or if you have any questions about the store. They also played AC theme songs over the speakers sometimes and they'd display the characters on a tv screen!!

The one area I didn’t get a good pic of is where things like stationery, folders, pencil cases, etc. were.

Items in my picture from left to right, top to bottom:

Clothes net for washing machine, small blanket, hoodie (free size, M-L ladies), scissors, random sticker from signing into Nintendo account, towel, two folders that come together, puffy stickers, pad of paper, the back of the receipt, a hand mirror, bath mat, placemat, two phone cases.

Hey guys, it looks like Nintendo is going to be re-running the same promotional activities from Nintendo Live 2019 and Jump Festa '20 at the World Hobby Fair Winter 2020 later this month and in early February. Still no playable demo build, though.

Thank you for letting us know! I might go back the 25th or the 26th when it's at Makuhari Messe again. Plus there'll be other things to do.

EE! I just got my pre-order in at GAME! They're offering a neat-looking Animal Crossing tote-bag as a pre-order bonus.

72 days to go!

TexasPch7 - I know, right? A tote-bag is one of those items that seems like a good fit as an Animal Crossing pre-order bonus, somehow - I just hope that it has more space in it than our in-game pockets have traditionally had!

Somehow I doubt that the tote bag will be big enough to hold more than fifteen sofas.

707penguin - I will be severely disappointed if it can't hold a full contingent of 16 far-too-easily-obtained whale sharks!

EDIT: We've got some new screenshots, everybody - a grand total of two! Now excuse me why I puzzle over why we've still seen barely anything about the game even though it's now very close to release.

Taking this to its logical conclusion, the largest item in the game is, as far as I'm aware, the moon. Based on the volume of the moon and what I can glean from a very cursory look at the Wikipedia article on sphere packing, the capacity of the New Leaf inventory must be at least 473.2 quintillion cubic meters, or 473.2 cubic megameters.

Ah, too bad they're screenshots from previous trailers. D:

And thank you for the math 707! Yeah assuming that it is "the moon," so to speak.

Also the tote looks better than the bag given away in Pocket Camp Club's promotional giveaway
