aldericon just pointed out in the staff chat that Nintendo seems determined to make it harder and harder to add maps to your town's page on ACC. She only finished the system for AC:NL maps a couple of months ago, and those were only made from a small limited selection of layout tiles!

I was pretty blown away by this Direct. I was afraid we were only going to get very limited information, but we got a whole lot of stuff!

I agree that the museum is just beautiful - they've improved on it with every game since the original GC release, but this one is just absolutely stunning!

Loved seeing how pathmaking works and was completely stunned to see terraforming!  I'm not good at landscaping, though.

It was great to see the other shops, like the Able Sisters, and that items are still being displayed like in previous games, rather than just a menu interface.

I love that we'll be able to visit other islands for flowers/fruit/fish/bugs.  I'm not bothered that we might be able to get some bugs/fish earlier than usual.  After all, even in NL the island was only set to August, so i'ts not like you could complete your entire encyclopedia by visiting the island.

I know there were other things that stood out to me while watching, but I can't remember it all.  Time to go watch the video again!

ETA: Oh...I was going to touch on the free updates, which sounds like are just going to be holidays?  I hope we still get some free DLC, like in previous games.  As for the holiday updates, I hadn't thought about it being due to them not having them all implemented yet.  I had thought, that perhaps it might mean that we'll get different things and/or items each year for each holiday.  That would be cool, so that we can celebrate a holiday in a different way each year or at least get some new items.  Or, it could simply be that they want to offer free updates, and the holidays are an easy thing to pull out and just add in as a free update.

I am absolutely... blown away... I can't even articulate how I feel about it! I've never been this excited about a game before! The museum was absolutely stunning; I was so hoping they'd do something amazing with the exhibits and they've definitely delivered on that. The landscaping feature was a huge wow moment for me, I'm not the best at designing or landscaping but I can't wait to see what people who love that kind of thing can come up with. It wasn't 100% clear but I was wondering if we're able to choose our residents, as Nook was saying he had been "advertising" and that he'd had interest from 3 parties? So I wonder if we can accept their application or something like that. It looks like we can also relocate our house and the shops after they've been placed too as it looks like Nook has a relocation option later on but again that may have been misunderstood from the video... all in all, for me they've absolutely smashed it out of the park and I can't wait to play it next month!

I wonder if there might end up being more than just holidays, here? It just occurred to me that in-game events for ACNH, with promotional in-game items and clothing included as part of them, could be used as a way to generate buzz for other current or upcoming first-party game releases, too*. (The same team has done this with the Splatoon series before, even.)

*Am I the only one who would find a cardboard Nintendo Labo clothing set to be amusing?

So does Labelle have a twin sister or did they change her name to Label? Conversely, was that just a mistake in the build they were using?

Part of the City Folk lore that you get by talking to the special characters enough times is that Labelle was born Label but changed her name to make it sound fancier when she left to pursue her dreams in the city. This seems to indicate that she's changed it back!

Character development, yaaay!

In the Japanese version of AC:NL, Sable suggests that changing Label's name to "Labelle" was a condition mandated by Gracie; Label wasn't happy about it but needed the job. That got toned down for the Western release.

Label sounds like such a Japanese Pokémon name though, like Klink more or less being called Gear.

The next month can not go by fast enough. I'm excited for the changes. I really hope they let the Villager's personalities shine in New Horizon's. That was one of the biggest let downs of New Leaf for me, how the canned the Villager's felt. The crafting addition seems interesting and I really like the fact that we can decorate outside of the homes. Not sure how I feel about being able to choose your neighbors. That was always the magic of Animal Crossing for me, meeting a Villager you didn't think you'd like and then end up loving them.

The one thing that makes me sad is the grave they showed. I think it may belong to Tortimer

I've been watching the video again, and the island tour thing appears even worse than I originally thought. First of all, they're not actually like the tours in New Leaf - those fun little minigames that happened to be accessed through Tortimer Island. They are instead more like actual "tours," as each time you essentially get taken to a random island in the vein of Tortimer Island. This means that the one part of Tortimer Island that I actually liked is not yet confirmed to be returning like I thought it was.

Worse, we can see at about the fifteen-minute mark of the video that one of the islands is in winter, and there's even a tarantula on the ground. This means that it may actually be possible to fill up your encyclopediae within a matter of days if you go on a lot of these tours. The one bright side is that each tour appears to require spending Nook Miles, which should hopefully limit the rate at which they can be taken.

Although I just noticed that she's apparently a special visitor in this game, so it looks like she's no longer working with her sisters.

Maybe she's going on a spiritual journey to centre herself and find her place in the world.

Hell, maybe she can eventually settle in the town like Katrina did in NL. (Which reminds me - is Katrina confirmed for NH yet? I don't recall seeing her in any of the prerelease material.)

"Worse, we can see at about the fifteen-minute mark of the video that one of the islands is in winter, and there's even a tarantula on the ground. This means that it may actually be possible to fill up your encyclopediae within a matter of days if you go on a lot of these tours."
It doesn't seem like it would make much sense for island tours to be able to visit towns of any season. My prediction is that it's just that tours will be able to visit the opposite hemisphere. So, in June, you'd be able visit an island where it's summer or winter, but not one where it's spring or autumn. In that case you'd still need about 6 months to fill up your bug encyclopedia (assuming you fastidiously caught every one as it became available and didn't miss any).

I suppose that's a little better, although it still wouldn't take six months - barely three, in fact. Based on New Leaf availability, I believe you could catch your last bug and fish on 1 July.

i'm super excited about the details they added for your player's facial customization, such as the different noses and mouths. i'm going to go with a square nose and 3-mouth for my player character when i get the game.

A lot of people seem to think that the ability to get bugs out of season is game-ruining and trivially easy, but that's always been the case when you play online and people have their towns in different seasons.

Though the money making meta in New Leaf was a joke (just go to the island and make millions of bells in no time), so I guess the Nook miles will curb that and make it more of a random chance that you get into a tour that has expensive bugs, and you'll have to go and farm more miles once you've exhausted them all.

Which is why a lot of us form legitimate-play groups or otherwise refuse to play online with time travelers.

I thought it was odd that a summer bug appeared on the distant island when it was winter.

In New Leaf you can catch all fish if you visit other players towns set in a different season.  With bugs some were in  your town only with the no gates opened.  Bugs like tarantulas were caught in your own town.


With the Meow Coupons they did make rare bug and fish easier to catch. One time a player had catch a tarantula and get 2 coupons.  I spotted 5 in one hour and caught one.


Maybe they added the bugs to the distant island because the game can be set in northern or southern when you start?  I would prefer to catch those bugs in a year or 2 on my own island.  Visiting the distant island and having tarantulas chase you isn't fun.  I would prefer the distant island for regular fishing/bug hunting like ACNL.

I love the new museum and plan on spending a lot of time there.  Some things I'm not sure about but I'll have to give them a try.

I'm trying to remember everything they said wouldn't be available the first day...

Correct me if I'm wrong:

-holidays
-back-up saves
-WiFi? I think they said you can start visiting islands the day after you arrive, but was Nintendo Online also not available right away?
