I just wanted to know everyone's opinions on what we saw yesterday!!

I'm excited about Katrina coming back

Also, they didn't discuss mistakenly removing patterns on the ground when you are trying to pick something up that is near it. It would be cool to remove patterns when you are in construction mode.

What are your thoughts?

I love the partitions used to add sections to your interior. I saw cactuses during the Direct, and I’m super excited for those. I wonder if they will be plantable or just items? They look like plants from the video, but they could be items you can craft.

Hello,

It s been more than a year since the last time I played to ACNH... I was bored of the game and it wasn t fun anymore (for me).

All the free updates nintendo made were needed to have a complete game and add things they should have inplemant since day one. ACNH is a great game and I loved it, but except for the outside amenagement (and it's huge !), we didn't have something outsanding for the serie.

What i m looking for the most is a new way to interact with your villagers. Developing some new relationships, deeper than now. Interact whith them though some answers we might give them (good or bad ones). I would love to see a story developing between the villagers, they could be BFF or in conflit... And they will give us real and usefull trials to their stories.
I was also hoping for some cool minigames to play online... Like in ACNL but better !

We won't have that in the update or the dlc.... To bad

But i m super hyped by the dlc ! Again, nothing new because it s just a better happy home designer connected to our island. But I realy want to try the new possibility offered. And make some aerobic !

I will buy it the 5 or maybe preorder it if we can get a bonus

It s the first time I make a post since a looooooong time here, and I hope you will understand my little speech because english is not my native language.

Have a good day everyone !

Not thrilled. Cooking is dumb, tired of cooking and crafting mechanics in game. The gyroid fragments are dumb. Paid DLC, really? And what happened to "years" of free updates and this is the last major one? Plus $80 for a family membership. Not real happy with Nintendo right now. Everything else looks good. I'm a huge Happy Home Designer fan, so that's cool, and at least I'll be able to get it for free with the expansion pass which I'll unfortunately be buying anyway... I guess the price is mostly fair, tbh, but I'm also a Nintendo simp so what do I know, lol. Not looking forward to trying to complete the Amiibo card collection because it's basically impossible with scalpers and other nonsense, and I'm also baffled at what the heck the beautiful town ordinance will mean now? Seems pointless considering a) weeds are a necessity for crafting, b) they hardly spawn anyway unless you're away for a while, and c) my flowers already reproduce like rabbits (except, go figure, the hybrids I need yet).

Let's see what else... New HHP characters and they still didn't bring back everyone else, including the new ones they made for the sole purpose of Pocket Camp. Also, are we seeing the return of at least some items from previous sets and series? You can see some of the ranch items + some new ranch items in the HHP portion of the Direct.

I was the only one with few complaints about the launch game, and I'm probably the only one with many complaints of the updates. Albeit annoyed by the lack of characters, but since they claimed more updates to come, I wasn't too worried about it. I don't know how people can say NH is the worst game when they continuously updated to add characters and yet there is WW with hardly any holidays. Just my opinion, of course.

We've basically been locked into the beautiful town ordinance for the whole game, so I'm wondering if picking a different ordinance will cause flowers to wilt again.

^ Wondering that about the ordinance too. If so, I think I'll switch temporarily to let some of them die off lol

"And what happened to "years" of free updates and this is the last major one?"
That's a misunderstanding of a quote. Kyogoku actually said developers,

"want to make sure that in two years or three years down the road, players will still continue to find new surprises in the game."
So more that there's even small things added to the game that it'll add longevity.

Kalleh - Honestly I get what you mean, when I saw the first half of the Direct, I enjoyed it but it didn't wow me... until they showed HHP. As another HHD lover, that alone made the Direct for me. The other stuff is just sorta there, but nice little additions nonetheless. Still unsure if I'm gonna go for the Expansion Pass. My PC isn't good for gaming so that may be the best way for me to play the N64 games.

As for WW... it was the first handheld AC, an early handheld 3D game, and it did a lot of things that, at the time, handheld games hadn't done. So people look back on it fondly. Whereas NH seemed a bit behind the curve in some aspects. (Also the villagers in WW had more personality. And we could make constellations.)

@ the people considering getting the expansion pass, it's important that you know that if you stop paying for the expansion pass, you will lose access to the HHP islands as well. you'll keep features that you unlocked on the main island, but that's it

if you're not totally sold on the N64 games, your better option is to buy the DLC by itself since then you keep it forever

I am so happy! This is what I've been hoping for and then some. I can't wait to visit some redecorated islands. I think I need a bigger one.

I loved Happy Home Designer more than sleep, so I hoped Nintendo would expand on it in the future. And they did! The ability to place accent walls, partitions, and counters will help so much.

It looks like Reese and Cyrus will let you customize items that you previously had to buy from other people to get the color you wanted. Is that how you all understood their role on Harvey's Island?

I just hope that the DLC, once bought and downloaded, will be accessable for all parties, if you share a switch and play ACNH together with other people. If they locked the DLC to an account, but not the main island, it would pretty much proof to me Nintendo is  only and just in it for the money...

" We've basically been locked into the beautiful town ordinance for the whole game, so I'm wondering if picking a different ordinance will cause flowers to wilt again."
Since ACNH is already a bit easier than the other AC games (at least in my opinion), I’m hoping switching from the default beautiful ordinance makes it so that flowers just won’t spread (but not necessarily wilt) if you don’t water them I am tired of the rain resulting in a flower overload lol

" when I saw the first half of the Direct, I enjoyed it but it didn't wow me... until they showed HHP. As another HHD lover, that alone made the Direct for me.  The other stuff is just sorta there, but nice little additions nonetheless."
Same!! I really liked HHD but got bored with it eventually because it wasn’t much for a stand-alone game. But I’m really excited for the HHP DLC and will definitely be buying I think Nintendo heard me saying most Switch titles aren’t worth the $60 price so they gave me paid DLC that I just can’t refuse

Excited for the new walls and partitions etc! I used to love building and decorating houses in the Sims so this is a similar vibe!!

I liked HHD but didn't think it was worth the price. $25 + adding to the main game is well worth it imo.

Recently I downloaded a Switch title to get it on release and now I kind of regret it since I don't think I'll replay it and I can't sell it... :/ idk how much of the $60 I could've gotten back but still

Agreed about game pricing. I get bored with most games too easily to justify $60, and most Switch games just lack enough content to warrant that price when compared to other games. I'd say NH is one of the few games I found even somewhat worth it so far, maybe Mario Maker as well. But also I haven't played BotW or Metroid Dread yet.

And I hope the new wall features lead to more home design features in future AC titles... such as making rooms that are different sizes in the same room (like one square section branched off of a narrower rectangle section), and maybe doors/curtains in the partition walls to make closets or bathrooms etc.

"  I get bored with most games too easily to justify $60, and most Switch games just lack enough content to warrant that price when compared to other games. "
My next most played Switch game after ACNH is Splatoon at a whopping 10 hours of play ACNH has around 300 hours though so I’ll just stick to whatever AC content Nintendo hopefully continues to release

I think the only part of this update that has left me disappointed is the lack of activities to play over Wifi, but maybe they’ll come out with another DLC pack addressing that in the future. In the meantime I guess the HHP DLC could entertain me alone One of my fave parts of AC is wifi’ing with friends and when some of my friends lost interest a few months ago I kind of quickly did as well

I was pleasantly surprised by all the features that they are adding, as well as finally offering a paid DLC.  I have ZERO interest in paying money for individual villagers (cards and figures), so it's really great to finally get a paid DLC that doesn't involve having to purchase a physical product or involve randomness.

I'm excited for Harvey's island and getting a more permanent store for some of the visitors.  I hope this means that I can finally finish my art gallery at the museum.  Happy to see Harriet and Reese/Cyrus.

I was also excited to see aerobics finally make a return.  That was something I absolutely loved from the original game.

I tried HHD, but just couldn't get into it.  But, I think I'll enjoy this more since it's connected to my island.

I plan to pre-order the DLC, since the expansion pass price is way too high for me, since I have no interest in the N64 or SEGA titles.  I'm really not a Nintendo fan - the only Nintendo series I've ever played is Animal Crossing.

As far as the town ordinance is concerned, I don't really think we're under the Beautiful Ordinance right now, as we still get weeds and trash from fishing, which were part of what the Beautiful Ordinance did, in addition to not having to water flowers.  I just think that they changed the way flowers work in this game.  What I suspect the Beautiful Ordinance to do in ACNH is to prevent weeds from growing and trash from showing up in rivers/ocean.  Maybe it could also mean that hybrids are easier to get. That would be cool.

I was also curious what the Beautiful Ordinance does. I bet you’re right about the weeds, trash, and hybrids.

So the DLC will allow us to redesign our villagers homes. I’m wondering how that’s going to work when villagers move to friends town. Like, if I decided to redesign Poppy’s house and then later on, a friend invited Poppy to live in their island… what happens to Poppy’s home? Will it be reset or does the home redesign follow her? And if it does follow them… how will that work in trading? If I got Raymond and I redesigned his home to have all the most valuable furniture, suddenly he’s worth so much more because you could gift him a fish and end up with a crown in the recycling bin.

I loved the update- it had WAY more than I expected.  My jaw was on the floor most of the time, to be honest.  I’m thrilled we’ll get the old furniture sets back.  It’s really been bugging me not to be able to decorate the way I have before.  Thrilled with the paid DLC.  I was into HHD so I’ll get that.  

Where is Gracie Grace though?  The Gracie items have *always* been my favorites and out of everything else I’ve missed them the most!  Do you guys think we’ll see Gracie (or Gracie items) with the free update?  Will Gracie items be part of the “special furniture” you can buy with the paid DLC?  Or do you think there will be separate paid DLC down the road just for Gracie?

Whatever happens, I’m still super excited!!!

^ Nintendo confirmed with IGN that there's not going to be any more content updates to the game after this. They're just going to support it which most likely means patches.
