Starting out with nothing this game seems really cool, but since we haven't really seen anything but the start of the game, I'm slightly worried. Where are all the shops we love? Where will they go? I'm kinda hoping that people at Nintendo saw everyone wanting to pick where house's go and said "we'll do you one better, you can pick where everything goes." but I'm still unsure. The fact we haven't even seen classics like the museum or town hall is making me wonder if some staples of the series will be absent this time around since it's such a new format?

I'm personally hoping we get a main street style thing again. having to choose permanent spots for a bunch of shops is a bit Too Much pressure for me. in the wide view version of the cover art you can see harvey off on what looks like another island (or maybe it's the mainland). my guess/hope is that all the shops will go there. considering we can have 8 players characters + who knows how many animal villagers living on the island, I can't see there being much room left for shops based on how big the island seemed in that treehouse presentation.

I'm hoping for either a separate island to go shopping, or to be able to choose a spot for the shops to go. If we get to choose, maybe the animals will hear about our new town and come to check it out and then decide they want to stay and open up shop! Or maybe they'll prop up tents or stalls every so often and after you spend enough, then they'll open up shop. I think it's most likely the resident service area will turn into the shopping area, though
