I hope they have a variety of part-time jobs and other chores you can do. Like work at Brewster's, help Pete make special deliveries, deliver or pick up items for Tom Nook and/or the Nooklings, collect certain types of materials for the Able Sisters, organize displays for the museum, decorating homes for other villagers, working as a guide for animal visitors or newly arrived residents, etc.
Kind of off-topic, but I just want there to be lots of optional side activities you can do. Mini games, activities like the morning exercises from the GameCube game, Sports Day and other more involved events, excursions you can go on with animal villagers, etc.
I'm sure the game will be great! It'll be so exciting just running around exploring and working toward unlocking things. Can't wait for March 20th!! It really can't come soon enough.
I've never been huge into the idea of jobs in AC mainly because that sort of thing doesn't appeal to me, but I still think it'd be cute to be able to offer to help any of the shop keepers, and each one would have a different mini game with unique rewards.
kicks could have a cooking mama style game where you make shoes
there could be a puzzle game where you have to organize inventory boxes so they'll fit in the back room of the store
visitors at the museum could come in saying "I heard about this thing, I forget what it was called...", then they'd give you a bit of information and you have take them to the proper bug/fish/dino/painting
Visit my dream towns!
