Video: New Animal Crossing 3DS Trailer

Oh my God, you guys. I can't even take this any more. Everything I see about Animal Crossing 3DS makes me want it even more. So this new trailer had the dual effect of sating my ravenous appetite for more details on the game while also making the wait for the still-unscheduled 2013 North American release more interminable than ever before!

First off, the detail in the graphics looks fantastic. It looks even better than City Folk on the Wii. And in 3D, I'm sure it will look even better. All the shots of the customized houses are mind-blowing. The level of customization available seems more than I can imagine. I can't wait to see what people are going to do with this. I also like that you can seemingly customize your town with specific bridges and benches, as well as your house exteriors like doors, mailboxes and fences. I can't wait to decorate the outside of my house! And I can't even believe the clothing design that they showed in this trailer. With QR codes so you can share with friends? Amazing!

Okay, sorry, I'll calm down a bit. I was delighted to see Booker back as a cop, and running the lost and found like in the original game. And it looks like you can set the hours that the stores are open, which is fabulous! The bit where the girl puts her face through the cutout makes me assume that there's going to be a camera feature in this game even though it hasn't yet been confirmed anywhere that I've seen. I mean, they had a camera in nintendogs + cats so you could take photos of your pets, and there was a camera in City Folk, so why remove such a crucial feature? Also, without a camera, how can I continue my diary? So the camera is very very necessary.

Now, if only I spoke Japanese so I could understand what the voiceover was saying, I'd have even more information! (And then the wait would probably be even more painful!)

any word on transferring your city folk character to this game?

I haven't heard anything about it, but I suppose it could be possible. Although I personally wouldn't do it. When I went from Wild World to City Folk, I chose not to bring anything over because Animal Crossing is always more fun when you start completely from scratch. It's not as exciting to collect all the new furniture when you've already got a full catalog from the last game! (at least in my opinion!)

I wondered the same thing as Rob when I saw this video, but then realized the same thing that Wootini said. I delete my saves when I pick up a game after awhile, so I certainly will be starting this anew, even if I had an option for otherwise.

Good luck to you, guys. I think Animal Crossing is sooooo boring. The only one I had fun was the Animal Crossing mini game at E3 Nintendo Land. Nintendo's staff didn't like me at all when I told them that. But anyway, it has fans, several versions, it sells, I have to respect that. Hope you people like it.
By the way, I can understand Japanese and they are speaking more of the same regular Animal Crossing features, like "you can build the city your style", "customize clothing", "decide on building shops", "use your 3DS system calendar to play in your lifestyle", and so on.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
