We are now less than a month away from the release date of "Animal Crossing: New Horizons," and it is easy to feel the heat of this game. Also, now that Nintendo has provided us with a 25 minute live stream, so that we can better understand the game, social media has gone wild with excitement.
As someone who has invested a lot of time in New Leaf, I am already excited about the new version of this classic Nintendo game, but after seeing more games and waiting for it, I have already booked and will look forward to launch day. arrive at midnight. I can start building my new city (name suggestions are welcome).
So, let's take a look at 10 things we learned from the recent Live Animal Crossing.
Let's start with what made Twitter cool: the museum. Fans of Animal Crossing are a strange group, but I have to admit that I am one of them; the museum looks great.
According to Nintendo's previous post, you will be responsible for storing all the wonders you can find on the island for the museum. It is not clear whether Blathers’ beloved character will re-administer the museum, but the updated graphics means that we will be excited in either way. Sorry, Blathers. One of the most exciting new features of
is the ability to change your island landscape. In the live broadcast, we saw players use new terrain modification tools to build and remove terrain and create new landscapes. This means you can extend the coastline, clear more space at different levels, and even create waterfalls.
It is still possible to cut trees and plant trees, as before. But now you can also build bridges and steps on the water to help you get from one level to another. You can control your island more than ever. It seems that you have gone from being a little mayor to a true God. we agree.
When you first move to your desert island, it will be beautiful, pleasant, and desolate. The livestream showed the player arriving with two other randomly selected residents, and no one else. You can invite new residents to your island while you play, allowing you to choose who can and cannot live in your tropical paradise.
In addition, you can also choose the camps of other residents. Just as you choose the perfect location for your new home, you can also choose where your neighbors will settle. This time they really gave us more control over the city, which is a very nice addition.
For those who like to play with friends and family, "Animal Crossing: New Horizons" has a host of multiplayer game options for you to enjoy. In terms of local games, you can have up to 8 characters on the same Switch. Everyone must live on the same island, and each Nintendo Account can only use one character. However, each of you will have your own store / house, so you can still make it your own.
also has a "party mode" where four players can race at the same time. One player plays the role of leader, and everyone follows and can search and fish together as a true group.
, of course, will also have an online mode. With this, if you have your island code and spend time together, you can visit your friend's island. However, there will be some restrictions, for example, axes and shovel are not allowed, so as not to completely destroy your island. However, if they are "best friends", this is not the case, but Nintendo has not elaborated on what this means.
For those who are serious about using Nintendo DS stylus to create custom designs for villagers, don't be afraid. You can transfer your New Leaf design to your New Horizons. You can scan the QR code of the original design and transfer it to your new game. So after all, all the time spent designing a perfect pattern is worth it.
Animal Crossing introduces some dangers in the game for the first time. If you are too eager to cut down some trees, you may be attacked by a swarm of wasps. We assume that the damage it causes will disappear with the medications they show, and it will not be too severe. Although, in the stream, the player looked suspicious, as if he fell directly to the ground and died. A bit harsh, communication.
Roaming at night, you may even encounter ghosts. Yes. In the short clip we saw, the ghost looked scared and then floated away, but this is another interesting and very cute addition.
When you start the game, you can choose the appearance of the initial setup of the island. As we mentioned before, you can customize and change these settings throughout the game, but it's nice to have this option early.
Not only can you decide the layout of the island, you can also decide if it is located in the northern or southern hemisphere. This won't affect many games, but it will adjust which season occurs in which month, which is a good contact. So if you want to experience Christmas in summer, you can.
The first time in "Animal Crossing" is to pay that charming Tom Nook after lending you the money to buy a new house. Of course, this loan has no interest or time limit. Thus, effectively, you can avoid paying it for the entire game. But this time, things are a little different.
Collect a fixed number of fish or many errors, won Nock Kilho. These Nook miles will be paid from your loan, and anyway, they will win them by doing them doing what they are doing sometimes.
When you pay, you can recover another loan to update your tent to your home. Then, you can recover another to make it bigger, and then add one more room. The intersection of animals is a game about taking Tom Nook really.
Your character will have a smartphone in the game, as it seems a rule in many modern games today. You have an application to track your Nook miles with your application for your craft recipe nature naturally.
As you progress through the game, you will see more applications to your phone, since the new functions will be available. Talk about the new features ...
There was no charge receivable to the users to add DLC in this game, but several availability seem to be able to download the line. It is likely that these introduce new residents, services and challenges, which helps keep the game longer.
