I have spent 2 days playing it so far and im not getting to bed until 4am, its so addictive. Good job we all are self isolating because of Coronavirus because i think i would lose my job.
Its a nifty little game, there is so much to do, there is lots of going back and forth, gathering materials, making tools, accumulating miles and bells, fishing, and visiting mystery islands.
I think ive played a good 20 hours so far over the 2 days, and ive only just managed to pay nook his 5000 miles and took a loan out for my house. There is a lot of work to do.
This will take me months and months to get through, i am okay with that though because it keeps me busy, distracted from the isolation, and i really enjoy it.
Im not sure if any you have played this before but wanted to share some tips and tricks that i had to figure out the hard way.
You start off with a native fruit, mine was oranges. You have to pay 2000 miles for a nook ticket to visit mystery islands to try and forage iron nuggets and other fruits. Once you have those fruits do not sell them. Use your flimsy shovel to dig holes and then plant the fruit in the holes and it will grow a fuit tree. You have to look for Oranges, Cherries, Pears, Apples, Peaches, and Coconuts. On that last one, Coconut trees can only be planted on the beach.
When foraging for iron nuggets, dig 2 holes behind you so that you dont fall backwards, and hit your stones with a shovel and it will spit out iron nuggets. You will need 30 to give to Nook to build the shop.
Also fish twice a day, once in the daytime and once at night because you will get different types of fish.
Upgrade with your miles to get bigger storage, it will cost you 8000 miles but its worth it.
You will need a vaulting pole to jump over rivers. You will get it from Blathers when you give him 15 specimens to open the museum. Unlike other tools it wont ever break.
Be prepared to replace your tools a lot because they do not last. When you get your house start stockpiling wood. Your house comes with a nifty feature. Free storage. You press right on the direction pad and you can put things into storage for safe keeping. Shake your trees every day to get tree branches. Each tree will spit out 8 branches, but never more than that. Same with your fruit. Stockpile. You can use it to trade for other fruits when you visit other islands or when you get online friend codes. And you can use it to plant fruit trees. I have planted hundreds all over my island. Nook also gives you money for fruit so its a good money making scheme.
When you get your shovel, once a day you will notice a glowing spot on the ground, use your shovel and dig a hole. It will give you a money bag. 1st one is 1000 bells. Leave the hole open and click x to select the bag but use the joystick to increase the value of the bag to 10,000 bells and then bury the bag in the hole. This gives you a money tree. Each tree then gives you 3 bags of 10,000 bells. You can then use your shovel to dig the money tree up and replant it somewhere easier to find. Ive put all mine next to my house, i have 4 so far.
You will need them becuase infastructure later in the game is expensive. Your 1st bridge costs you over 100, 000 bells and more so you need a lot of money.
Thats as far as ive got so far. Hope this has been helpful.
Gameplay allows only one save per console - which means if you are sharing a switch you are automatically locked into sharing one island and it's resources. But this is not the main issue. The first person to create their profile has the lead role and experiences the entire game in full - tutorials, recipes, unlocking new buildings etc. Any other players unfortunately are limited in what they can do and have completely different experiences. They do not get the main story and instead are locked behind the 1st player waiting for them to unlock things to progress the game.
This can be a BIG problem and cause a lot of frustration - especially if you have children who are looking to each play the game, don't understand why each can do different things or even cannot play anymore as the lead player has stopped and not unlocked what is required. Seems like a cheap shot by Nintendo to encourage household to have more than one switch console and game to avoid the problem.
Nowhere do they make it clear that any player who comes after the first player is a second class citizen and unable to get the full experience, me and my son have wasted a few hours playing before discovering this stupid behaviour. I'm returning this game now as it isn't fit for purpose, I can't afford to be buying a console for every family member who wanted to play this!
Oh yeah, if you want to visit your friends island, youll need nintendo online too.
Never played Animal Crossing before?
Do you enjoy sim style games? Controlling a person and their life...?
Well this is similar. Except there are certain goals to achieve to unlock progression within the game. It's a bit of a survivalist game. You need to collect items, to keep people happy, to craft new items, and sell to make money! It's more addictive then you think!
The game is just beautiful. The attention to detail is superb. I get so lost within the game, listening to the wind through the trees and watching them sway. The ripples in the water.
I just spend hours fishing, the fish look incredible!
Some people are saying the game is a bit slow to take off. I dont think that's the case. Yes you have to wait til the following day for some building upgrades to happen but AC was the same in New Leaf, and who wants to have it all in days 1 and 2!? I just spend my day earning bells and miles by completing some of the continuous goals set.
I love that unlike New Leaf this is a completely new island! You can place everything and need to build it up.
Absolutely great addition to my game collection.
P.S this has been played on the Switch & a 62" TV. It looks beautiful on both!
Shame, as it’s a good game apart from that. I use to love the old games.
Bit disappointing Nintendo! They just want you to buy a separate game or console
Well worth the wait, beautiful graphics and just an overall amazing game! BUY IT!!! :D
The game itself is excellent if you are a single player but the multiplayer issue is the biggest disappointment I can remember as a Nintendo fan.
Unless an option to swap rep is somehow added I would call this a waste of money if more than one person in the house wants to play.
Yup I said it. Animal Crossing is both mindless, and pointless.
It is a groundhog day of a game. The same things, over and over. Wake up, shake trees, catch wasps, hit rocks, hit trees, speak to villagers, catch tarantulas, avoid that final house expansion debt, decorate your island.
It takes no skill, minimal creativity and literally no thought.
I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but there is a global pandemic going on at the moment. People being locked down, confined to their homes, unable to see friends or family. Events postponed or cancelled, trips and visits prohibited.
But in the world of animal crossing you have a whole island, with people on it, where you can go where you want, do what you want and see who you want and visit those friends you haven’t seen in real life for more than a month.
Whilst sitting in the same place you always sit to play; you can completely change your surroundings. No need to spend real money, no virtual B&Q queues and no risk of falling off the stepladder and having to go to Casualty.
You can go and visit your friends and marvel at their creativity, how they have decorated their home, the different areas of their island and which villagers they have. You can get on a dodo airlines flight and jet set to new unexplored island to harvest materials or to find a rare island for big fish, butterflies or those 8-legged pay checks the tarantulas.
There are events, which can be social and give you a sense of purpose for the day, or you can just sit on your mismatched furniture that fell out of a tree and wait for shooting stars.
The fact it takes little thought is what is going to get some of us through this difficult time.
Real life has worries in it, people losing their jobs, people not getting paid, people worried about finances, businesses closing, families struggling, key workers bearing the brunt of mental burden on the front line, constant news of worries about the NHS, medical burden, DNR orders, PPE, new emergency hospitals. People dying. Vulnerable people worried, suffering, alone and scared.
But in my little island I catch an emperor butterfly which gives me enough money to buy a whole new outfit for my little pixel body that doesn’t change no matter how much ice cream I’ve eaten. I don’t have to work from home on that island. I don’t have to wonder whether to wear a mask next time I go to buy milk. My biggest worry is whether I'll get the turnip stock market right this week.
Isabelle cheerfully announces that there’s no news today! A stark contrast to the daily death toll on the real news.
Tom Nook checks whether a villager is OK with you uprooting their entire life to move them across the island, they pop in and strangely enough they never mind! In real life if you want to speak to anyone? You’d better hope you’re 6 ft way from them.
In short, if you want somewhere to live the easy life, where corona virus doesn’t exist, go find your own new island. Give it a good name, design your own clothing, paintings and decorations and live in a better world with friends all from the comfort of your ice cream stained pyjamas.
She got into it quite a bit, so we thought we will buy another Switch for her, as I'm going to use mine soon too play another game.
There's a stupid limitation for Animal Crossing which doesn't allow more than one person to play it on one Switch console. I thought, fine, I'm not going to play it, but it turns out, Nintendo doesn't even allow to transfer a save file for this game from one Switch to another!
You can't transfer and completely delete the save file from my switch for someone else to continue playing it on a different Switch.
That is absolutely insane!
I can't use switch lite to play my game either, cos i use it docked.
I am forced by Nintendo to return the switch lite i bought.
