Any Animal Crossing fans here? I looked around and didn’t see a thread anywhere for it. If there is one somewhere tucked away, mods feel free to delete this or merge it into that thread.
I just wanted to see if there were any fans here, and if so what did you think about the trailer? I was extremely hyped for this game as a big Animal Crossing fan who has played every entry, and I must say that it wasn’t quite what I was expecting. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. I feel like the art style looks a bit... off? Maybe that’s just going to take an adjustment since it’s a new game on a new generational console, but it did catch my eye and had me raising an eyebrow. Did anyone else feel the same? Am I just crazy?
And then the other concern I have is that it’s on an island. One thing I always loved about other Animal Crossing entries was being able to travel to an island, but now we are already on an island? So will we be able to travel to like a city or something? Or perhaps just another island, something smaller? Or will this be where the entirety of the game takes place and we will only be able to travel to other friends’ islands? Those are just some questions I have and I don’t believe they’ve been answered yet.
Now what I do know is this - you can have up to eight people live in your town. Four of you can do tasks and things around your town with couch co-op. You can also have up to seven, yes SEVEN, other players online come and visit your town at the same time making it possible to have eight people in your town at one time. All of that is pretty damn cool. They showed it off during treehouse and there are a lot of promising things I saw, so even though it wasn’t quite what I was expecting I’m still excited for it and will be picking it up day one even though I’ll be busy with the remake.
