I'd like to see actual acres come back from AC:GC. It made navigation much easier and was nice for working on getting a perfect town.

Or the AC:GC music. It's not exactly a "feature" but it's a huge part of the game for me.

What do you think is the most surprising thing about NH so far?

probably the fact that Arlo was right. I'm subscribed to Arlo on youtube and he made this prediction (kinda jokingly I think) that it'd be on an island that you'd fly to and there would be crafting and I was like "yeah right arlo, there's no way" BUT HE WAS RIGHT

For me it still has to be the crafting mechanic. I'm a lot less skeptical now than I was at first, but it's still such a departure from previous games. Seeing the person in the Treehouse gameplay segment shake a bunch of trees and have crafting materials come out of most of them was of particular note in terms of being significantly different from what we've come to know of the series.

The one thing that still worries me about crafting is fishing.  I enjoy fishing & bug catching along with the animlals, so if it makes it to odd I'll be disappointed.  I don't want to have to dig up a bunch of clams just to get some relaxing fishing done.  

I agree with Cano about the return to the grid.  It was the demo in the Treehouse, but the map there did have things laid out that way.    It made finding Franklin & items posted buried on the Message board easier.

I'm most surprised with how little there is on your island to start. One "service area" (especially one that is open 24/7) will make the game feel completely different.

Although I'm wondering how long that lasts. If your island starts to look like a normal AC town in a few weeks most people will play 99% of the game with a normal-looking time and forget about the start quickly.

Either way, the 24/7 service area will be nice if you play at abnormal times. I just got back into AC:GC and I've found the need to keep time traveling because it's hard to do much of anything when Nook is closed.

That is a interesting call to have the Nook Tent always open.    

I work 3rd shift, but stupidly flip my body around on my days off or on vacations.  Tho I back in the Population Growing days I would have loved it.  Especially in the No Sea Bass days in Sept.  I would load up all 4 characters with good fish on my nights off playing overnight.

I might if it looks like there will be shortages, but I got New Leaf on release day without preordering, so I'll probably do the same thing this time around.

Preordering guarantees you'll get a copy on release day and without it they might run out, right? If so I think I will preorder. I haven't preordered a game in a few years though so I don't really know how it works.

I just plan to buy a digital copy so no need to preorder. AC is the kind of game I like to have digitally bc often times once I take a game cartridge out to play a new game, I never put it back in.

if there's a special edition switch on the other hand, I'm preordering that for sure

What do you think about the spring release date? Are you excited to start in the spring, or do you miss the summer release of New Leaf or the autumn releases of games past?

Personally, my initial reaction was that I would prefer an autumn start date, but I've been talking myself into the spring release. Either way, it's better than a summer release. I did not like how the majority of bugs and fish were available right from the start in New Leaf.

The time of the year isn't a big deal to me. I do want it as soon as possible so I can play it sooner but if that was going to lead to a rushed game I'd prefer the slight delay and a full game.

I wish it was a late summer release for timing, as I love the idea of playing for a few months before heading into my favorite AC season (winter) but I’m ok with spring! The delay didn’t make me mad at all, but I am a bit bummed to have a long wait to winter. For every other reason though I’m perfectly ok with the delay. Autumn releases were my favorite though.

As for bugs and fish, I don’t mind when they’re all available as I do that at my own pace anyway. Hopefully there aren’t that many available at the start so I can get the museum on my island before there’s a ton to catch. I really hope they add a lot of new bugs and fish, catching fish can be such a fun time passer

I'm actually pretty glad the game is coming out when it is.

1) it's the day before my birthday, so I can ask my family to split the cost and get me it as a gift
2) because of the island theme, I'd rather start when things are green
3) it's coming out after pokémon which is great!! I was worried it'd come out shortly before pokémon and I'd have to juggle playing the two at the same time, but now I can fully enjoy pokémon and be done with it before AC comes out
4) cherry blossoms less than two weeks after the game comes out

when it comes to bugs and fish, I wonder if we can keep them outside as furniture? either way, I plan on holding onto one of everything I catch until I get the museum (assuming it's something that needs to be unlocked this time)

I hadn't even considered that the museum won't be available from the start! I will probably also hold onto one every bug and fish until I get it. I sold my first coelacanth in City Folk because I was tired and not thinking straight and I never ended up catching another one.

thank you for picking up my slack, 707

As for me, I'm ok with a spring release, I think. Closer to summer may have been better, but I can go for spring. I'm a little ticked about the delay, though.


270 days until NH!

I'm happy about the timing as I work at a University.  The 20th March is just 2 weeks before the end of Spring term.  So 2 weeks after release I can take some time off work to play!

I actually really like the Spring release! I honestly really wasn't feeling a Winter release, though I would not have complained if NH was to be released in the Winter.

Spring is essentially the beginning of the year, which means that with a Spring release we'll be able to experience the full spectrum of the game from the 'beginning' of the year when then are still new and fresh -- to the end of the year with winter. Though I suppose that depends on what hemisphere you live & choose to play in

Also, March 20th is the International Day of Happiness which is so incredibly fitting haha
