AC:NL Island Tour Guide
 

Introduction

The Island has always been an important part of the Animal Crossing series. Renamed Tortimer Island after the former mayor Tortimer, the island now serves as a place to Wi-Fi with friends, swim and catch rare fish and insects.

However, the island is not available at first. After upgrading from the tent to the house, Tortimer will be introduced and can be seen standing at the docks. The next day, Kapp'n's boat will be able to take you over to the island round-trip for 1,000 Bells.

This guide is focused on the Island Tours you can do on your own island or on the online island. If you would like to find out more about the island, please read our Island Guide; more about things to do on the island, other than tours, can be found in the Island Extras Guide.

Tortimer now leads the island tours, special mini-games that can be played by yourself or with friends. Up to four players can participate in these tours. In the beginning, only the one-star tours are available - they're the easiest. As you complete the one-star tours, the two-star tours will become available. Then, as you complete them, the hardest tours are unlocked: the three-star ones. Island Medals are given as rewards and can be exchanged for items in the island shop.

In multiplayer mode, things are a little bit different. In most of the tours, bonus medals are awarded to each player depending on their contribution and the difficulty of the tour. Also, the required score for the medal objectives are multiplied by the number of people playing.

There are many different tours that can be played on the island. The tours are divided into categories and are further divided by difficulty. Talk to Leilani behind the counter to go on a tour!

Every day, you'll find a selection of the possible tours. For any specific day, the tours are fixed, which means that if you're on the same date as someone else, you'll have the same tours on offer.

Balloon-Hunt Tours

You're given a slingshot and a time limit. The goal is to shoot down as many balloons as possible. You must score 20 points to pass the level; regular balloons are worth one point and bunny balloons are worth three points. On the bottom screen of the Nintendo 3DS, you can see the direction the balloons are flying in and the location of the balloons. In multiplayer mode, there will be more balloons: each player will be assigned a color and can only shoot balloons of that color. There are three tours for Balloon-Hunt.

Easy Balloon-Hunt Tour

This is the beginning tour for the Balloon-Hunt. You have five minutes to pop as many balloons as you can. Scoring 20 points will give you 1 medal, scoring 26 points will give you 2 medals, scoring 32 points will give you 4 medals, and scoring 40 or more points will give you 6 medals. This basic tour is best for beginners to Balloon-Hunt!

Official Balloon-Hunt Tour

This tour is a little bit more difficult than the Easy Balloon-Hunt. Balloons travel at double the speed and obstacles are added into the map! Make sure to watch out for pitfalls and trees as you try to shoot down balloons. You can earn more medals from this tour: 2 medals for 20 points, 3 medals for 26 points, 5 medals for 32 points and 8 medals for 40 or more points. This tour provides a more challenging hunt for the confident player, who is no longer a novice at Balloon-Hunt.

Elite Balloon-Hunt Tour

The Elite Balloon-Hunt is the ultimate tour in this category. It tests your skill as a slingshot master. The amount of pitfalls is approximately tripled, so watch your step! The amount of medals you can earn is higher. Scoring 20 points will give you 3 medals, 26 points will give you 5 medals, 32 points will give you 7 medals, and 40 or more points will give you 12 medals.

Bug Catching Tours

There are two different kinds of Bug Catching tours. One type of tour just asks for you to catch as many bugs as possible. The other type of tour asks for a certain kind of insect. The Easy Bug-Catching Tour, Bug Free-for-All Tour, Pros-Only Bug Hunt, Market-Price-Bug Tour, and the Elite Market-Price-Bug Hunt are tours that allow you to catch as many bugs as you can. The Fall Bug Tour, Beetle-Hunting Tour, Cicada-Catching Tour, Butterfly-Discovery Tour, Dragonfly-Discovery Tour, Giant-Dragonfly Tour, Bug Hide-and-Seek Tour, Evening Firefly Tour, and Hop-To-It Bug Hunt are tours that ask you to catch a certain type of bug.

You have to arrange the fossils you have dug up exactly the way they appear in the house on the left. Once you match the two homes and step out of the house, you're finished. In multiplayer, the number of houses that must be complete is equal to the amount of players, so if there are three players, you have to complete three houses

If you finish in 9 minutes and 20 seconds, you get 6 medals. If you finish in 8 minutes and 40 seconds, you get 8 medals; if you finish in 8 minutes, you get 13 medals.

Gardening Tours

Don't let the fact that these tours involve flowers fool you! They're just as difficult and fun as the other tours.

Hammer Tours

It's hammer time!

On the Hammer Tours, each player is equipped with a hammer. The goal is to chase a Cornimer toy and hit it with the hammer as many times as possible, before time runs out. When the toy reaches an obstacle, it will change direction. Occasionally, it will flip over. This leaves it vulnerable to many easy hits.

Easy Hammer Tour

This three-minute tour will leave you begging for more! You have to hit the machine at least 30 times in order to get one medal. Hitting the machine 39 times will give you 2 medals, hitting it 48 times will give you 4 medals and hitting it 60 or more times will give you 6 medals.

Hide-and-Seek Tours

Based off of the in-town game, where you play hide-and-seek with your villagers, you have the opportunity to play the game on the island too! You have to find four villagers that are hiding all over town. They hide behind trees and other fixtures, like houses and public work projects. They don't hide on the beach and they don't hide inside buildings. In multiplayer mode, the players have one less minute to complete the tour for each additional player, so in a group of three, the players only have six minutes to finish, instead of 8 minutes.

Easy Hide-and-Seek Tour

This game is slow-paced and easy. You have 8 minutes to find all the villagers. They frequently lean sideways to peek out from their hiding place, so their positions are often given away. If you finish in 8 minutes, you get 2 medals. If you finish in 7 minutes, you get 3 medals. If you finish in 6 minutes, you get 5 medals, and if you finish in 5 minutes, you get 7 medals.

This hide-and-seek tour is the ultimate challenge! Are you up for it? In this tour, the animals don't lean out at all and are very well hidden. Make sure to double-check areas you may have looked in before if you can't find the animals. Sometimes they're hiding in very concealed spots. Also, watch out for pitfalls! There are many pitfall seeds dug all over the island.If you finish in 8 minutes, you get 4 medals. If you finish in 7 minutes, you get 6 medals. If you finish in 6 minutes, you get 8 medals, and if you finish in 5 minutes, you get 13 medals.

Item-Matching Tours

The Item-Matching Tour is basically a memory game. With a shovel, you have to dig up different items and match pairs. When you dig up an item, it stays in your pockets and if the next dug-up item doesn't match, you will automatically bury it again. When you dig a hole, you will be asked to bury the current item in your pockets. Sometimes, this feature is helpful if you dig up an item and you know where the other matching item is.

Easy Item-Matching Tour

This tour is good for beginners. You have to match 6 pairs (12 items) in 5 minutes. If you match all the pairs in 5 minutes, you get 1 medal. If you match all the pairs in 4 minutes and 30 seconds, you get 2 medals. If you match all the pairs in 4 minutes, you get 4 medals, and if you match all the pairs in 3 minutes and 30 seconds, you get 6 medals.

If you match all the items in 4 minutes, you get 7 medals, and if you match all the items in 3 minutes and 30 seconds, you get 12 medals.

Labyrinth Tours

The Labyrinth Tours will test your skill at mazes! You will have to gather a specific number and specific type of fruit ,such as 5 persimmons or 4 pears, and give them back to Tortimer. If you pick up the wrong fruit or don't have enough, Tortimer won't accept the fruit. In multiplayer mode, each player will be assigned a fruit. Once one player has completed his/her tasks, he/she can help the other player complete their task, because Tortimer won't give you any medals if all the tasks aren't complete.

Easy Labyrinth Tour

In this five-minute tour, you have to collect a certain number of a single type of fruit. This is great for beginners! If you finish in 5 minutes, you get 1 medal. If you finish in 4 minutes and 30 seconds, you get 2 medals. If you finish in 4 minutes, you get 4 medals, and if you finish in 3 minutes and thirty seconds, you get 6 medals.

Ore-Hunter Tours

Ores are a new feature in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Sometimes, a random rock appears. If you hit it with the shovel, the rock will explode and a gemstone will appear. There are amethysts, rubies, sapphires, emeralds, silver nuggets and golden nuggets. On this tour, Tortimer asks you to find as many gemstones as you can. Regular gemstones are worth 1 point, another type of gemstone Tortimer will announce will be worth 3 points, and there will be a mystery gemstone that is worth 10 points. It will be rarer and won't be found too often.

Not all the rocks contain ores. Some rocks are simply rocks.

Easy Ore-Hunter Tour

You have 4 minutes to stuff your pockets with as many gems as you can get! There isn't a mystery ore on this tour, but there is a gemstone worth 3 points. If you can get 12 points within the time limit, you get 1 medal. If you can get 16 points within the time limit, you get 2 medals. If you can get 20 points, you get 4 medals, and if you can get 24 points or more, you get 6 medals.

The Scavenger tours make you hunt for scavengers - or is it furniture? You start out with a list of furniture that you have to find. You have to enter houses and find the furniture you need. Once you have it, you have to put in your pockets and go back to Tortimer. The game ends when time runs out or you have all the furniture. In multiplayer, each player has to find three different items. A house can only be occupied by one person at a time. The game ends when the last person reports back to Tortimer.

The items in this tour can be confusing, it's an Elite tour, after all. You'll encounter five houses, randomly selected from eight possible houses. To help out, pictures of the inside of the eight possible houses are shown together with a list of the items in each house. The houses are named after the first item you see when you enter the house, which is denoted by number 1. Compare the house you're in with the pictures and check the list to the right of the picture to find items from your Scavenger-Hunt list. There's at most one item of the list in each house, so you'll need to check out between three and five houses before you've found all the items. Once you've collected all three items from the list, report back to Tortimer.
