001 - Animal Crossing New Leaf (3DS) - Main Theme

Animal Crossing: New Leaf (とびだせ どうぶつの森 Tobidase Dōbutsu no Mori?, "Animal Forest: Jump Out"), known as Animal Forest: Pop Out (튀어나와요 동물의숲, Twieonawayo Dongmul-ui Sup) in South Korea, is a life simulation video game released in 2012 for the Nintendo 3DS. The player takes on the role of mayor of a new town, and with the help of the townsfolk and Isabelle, an eager secretary, it will be their job to make the town a better place to live.

On the December 2nd, 2016 (North America) and November 25th, 2016 (Europe) update, Animal Crossing Amiibo Cards and figures can be scanned and villagers can move into your town via mobile homes, similarly to a feature in Animal Forest e+ that would allow the player to scan e-Reader cards to get villagers of their choice to move in. It is unknown at this point what else they will do with the upcoming release of the mobile application. Villagers who had not yet made an appearance in New Leaf will appear in mobile homes and can move into the Player's town. [1]

Compared to previous installments, New Leaf's aesthetics are more realistic, with more human-proportioned characters and more realistic flora. New Leaf introduces the most new features since Animal Forest e+.

Announcement

The game was originally unveiled at E3 2010, though very little was shown. A trailer was shown featuring updated features, and few new features. Shortly after, there was news that the player could be the mayor of the town, with the goal being to make the town a better place to live. A non-playable demo was also available on the show floor at Nintendo's booth as an example of 3D effects.

Animal Crossing

The logo, as seen during E3 2011

At E3 2011 during Nintendo's press conference, the Animal Crossing logo among others, appeared on-screen as a list of upcoming 3DS games. Additionally, a new trailer was released. The trailer showed off a new feature in the game: swimming and diving in the ocean. A player was shown changing not only his shirt, but also his shoes and pants. A player was also shown coming out of what appeared to be his tent-house. Throughout the town, benches and a beehive were shown, and with a villager and later a player sitting on the bench. Isabelle, was also introduced as the 'eager secretary' that helps the player throughout the game.

New features

Town customization

The town is now more customizable than ever before. The player has more power to choose which town to live in, by being given 4 random pre-set towns when starting the game. Once a town has been chosen, the player can determine the locations to build new buildings and features, set Town Ordinances and construct public works projects.
De

There are many projects available, including the return of the Police Station and the camp site that was last seen in Animal Crossing. It allows non-resident villagers to visit, who can then be encouraged to move in. Returning features include the wishing well and bridges, with new features including benches for villagers and the player to sit on.

New buildings and locations

  • Re-Tail is a recycling store which buys items at 25% higher than Nook's old stores in previous games. Reese and Cyrus run it, with Cyrus allowing the player to add their own designs to furniture they bring in.
  • The Roost is now a separate building from the Museum. The player may also work behind the bar making coffee for other villagers as a part time job.
  • The Town Tree, similar to the Wishing Well, is the centerpiece of each town. Most in-game festivals and events occur here.
  • Kicks is a new shoe shop run by the recycled character Kicks.
  • Main street
    Main Street is the main shopping district in the player's town, replacing the City. Many returning features can be found in the street, including Katrina's store, the Museum and the town shop. New to New Leaf is Kicks store, owned by Kicks who first appeared in City Folk, including many other new buildings.
  • Nook's Homes is owned by Tom Nook and staffed by Lyle. The player can upgrade the appearance of their house and can expand and add rooms, rather than upgrade their house in a set order.
  • Club LOL is the new entertainment venue replacing The Marquee. Dr. Shrunk and K.K. Slider make appearances, with their role remaining the same as in previous installments. K.K Slider appears everyday apart from Saturdays as DJ K.K., performing either regular or 8-bit remixes of his songs.
  • The Happy Home Showcase is managed by Digby. It utilizes the StreetPass feature in the 3DS, by adding the homes owned by other players who have been within range of the player's 3DS into their outdoor lobby.
  • The Dream Suite is a new building managed by Luna. Players can visit the towns of other players using their dream codes. Wendell also appears in the dreams to give the player patterns made by the player who owns the town, but he will only appear if the player allows it.

* Can be upgraded or is needed to be unlocked by doing certain actions.

Villagers

Villagers are now more diverse. Not only are there new characters, bringing the total up to 335, but also new hamster and deer species. Two new personalities have been introduced: smug and uchi. Villagers that have moved out can also visit the Main Street. Villagers can move in by winning a game or agreeing to move in when they are camping or either from Mobile Homes in the December 2nd update.

Collectibles

There are 72 bugs and fish in the game, up from 60 in City Folk. The player can sneak up on bugs with the net, a returning feature from the Nintendo GameCube games. It is now possible to store bugs and fish in closet and dressers

New Leaf adds a new class of collectibles to the series: deep-sea catches. These are obtained by donning a wetsuit and swimming in the ocean. Small shadows will move across the sea floor, and the player can dive down and grab creatures from these shadows.
