Animal Crossing New Leaf is the latest entry of the long running Nintendo series called Animal Crossing. It’s actually one of the most successful series created by the Japanese company, thanks to it’s simple yet engaging premise as well as the many customization options given to players that allow them to customize their character and house in many different ways and interact with others in some really interesting ways.
New Leaf brings some welcome addition to the gameplay formula, making the game even more addicting than before. Customization options have been vastly increased for both character and house customization. As if it wasn’t enough players will have the possibility, for the first time ever, to become the mayor of their town, allowing the new virtual mayors to even customize the town and improve it with public works. Creating a good city will allow you to get a Perfect Town rating as well as a 100% approval rating and the appreciation of your virtual citizens.
As usual you’ll also be able to take part in a lot of different activities for the game: bug catching, diving, fishing and more. Animal Crossing New Leaf is truly the perfect game for all those players who love to collect items: to truly find everything in the game you’ll have to work extra hard.
Among the new features introduced in Animal Crossing New Leaf are Spot Pass features, DLC and Online Play that make the best use of the Nintendo 3DS unique features.
In the Starter Guides we will be covering the very first steps you’ll take in the game, starting before your arrival in town. We’ll be taking a look at your first day in town and cover some useful simple trips that will help you get started with the game. It’s time to get on that train folks: there’s a town waiting for their new mayor!
- First Day In Town
Once you have chosen your appearance, the train will finally arrive in your town and for the first time ever in the series, you’ll also be mayor of your town! Get to Town Hall to get things started: you’ll meet Isabelle and Tom Nook and secure a house for yourself by going to the store with the leaf symbol on it.
Be careful when choosing the plot to build your house on since you won’t be able to change it afterwards. Once you’re done, head back to the Town Hall to get things really started: depending on the time of day you’ll be able to do a few different things. Isabelle will also give you a lantern and teach how to place it in your house. Once this is done head to the post office to claim another free gift.
