Animal Crossing 3DS to be biggest departure for series?
With all the big E3 news this past week, a lot of the smaller details may have gotten lost in the mix… but there’s something pretty interesting that was revealed. Animal Crossing fans know that the series has followed the same formula for so long… move into a town, you’re in debt, get a job with Tom Nook, make money to pay off debt, etc. There are new items, new characters, and new features in each game, but the same basic formula has been there from the beginning. But no more! Hidden away in the Animal Crossing 3DS fact sheet is this interesting tidbit…
In Animal Crossing, players move out on their own to live a life of ease in a village of walking, talking animals. But this time around, unexpected circumstances suddenly put the player in the role of Mayor in a town they’ve only just arrived in. With the help of the many unique townsfolk and one eager secretary, players will enjoy making their new town a better place for all to live in.
So looks like you’re now the mayor! So what happened to Tortimer? Who is the new secretary? What new features will the game have now with you being the mayor? We don’t know the answers to that yet, but this opens up a whole new world of possibilities. Personally, this is one of my most anticipated 3DS titles, and I can’t wait to see what’s new for the franchise. Oh, and speaking of what’s new to the franchise… the screenshots show that the characters you play as in Animal Crossing are a little taller now and more realistic looking. See, that’s a start! And all of this from a handful of screens and a paragraph. Hopefully we don’t have to wait long for more!
