Forums - Nintendo Discussion - The next Animal Crossing

I was thinking about AC, and just realized the strongest system it was ever on was the Wii. Now, I'm not an expert, but the Switch is a tad bit stronger than the Wii, right? 


Anyway, I believe it's the series with most potential out of any other franchise from Nintendo (I'd say Pokemon but we know how Gamefreak can't do shit probably will take them eighty years to reach 2012). It has a casual nature to it, but unlike a lot of series it benefits from the mellow tone it carries with it. Even with a small environment, I always got a lot of hours out of every entry in the series. 

New Leaf however was different than the first two entries. Now, that isn't to say it was bad (it was spectacular), but it felt more modern compared to the original entries which focused mainly on a woods-like lifestyle. With the Switch, I believe they should combine the best of both worlds and create a game where you can be more than just a mayor for one small town.

 

If there's anything Nintendo is good at, it's innovation. We don't need an open world AC. Instead, I believe having multiple regions that you can visit and control would open a lot of experiences and possibilities. They can have the original woods that we're accustomed with, and perhaps have a small city in Japan that you can visit and eventually become emperor after doing enough. There are a lot of possibilities - a New York city, arctic cold, islands (wide variety), and a lot more. 

 

Besides implementing more into the game, I think simply expanding the world would be fascinating to see.

Actually... I think the strongest system it's been on might be mobile. Yeah, how far we've come yadda yadda, pretty crazy.

Anyways, I haven't really played much Animal Crossing, only about 10 or so hours on New Leaf. I enjoyed that time, but then one day I left my 3DS out in the rain (great move, I know) and it took me quite some time to get it working back again, when it did the date was all messed up too, so my New Leaf save was pretty much ruined and I couldn't be bothered to pick it up again.

I will say, one thing I thought the game wasn't good at and they need to dramatically improve is the connectivity with other people. After playing it for some time and making really slow progress, I started to realize I was probably missing out on a bunch of important stuff by not using the streetpass features and such, but really it was all so cumbersome I just couldn't get around to doing any of it. I hope the Switch game makes stuff more seamless, it'd be cool if you could easily walk around in your friends' villages and interact with them in real time or something. Through the internet, of course (I mean, it's Nintendo, you never know).

Other than that I don't know, I'm fine with the franchise. I do have a fear however, that Pocket Camp will be all we get this generation.



I believe they should just go all out and make it a giant open world. Close to the size of botw. Doesn't even have to be that big, buy just think of how epic that would be compared to what we usually get from A. C.

Pretty sure "epic" isn't really what people are looking for when they buy an Animal Crossing game.

You can still make it the same fun,  quirky game. Just larger. Zelda has plenty of fun little interactions. They just need to multiply that a lot for A. C : Open world .

Bigger and better

Some better way for multiplayer, and some better literal farming system. Growing plants is neat and all, but being able to grow more, like with Harvest Moon would be nice. Land customization would be neat too

Yeah a bigger map would be great, especially if they had multiple landmasses/continents too, and you if could buy a boat and explore the sea :o 

Either way I just want a new Animal Crossing game which is bigger and better, but still retains the same feel of the other games.



The jump between a switch version of Animal Crossing and the previous versions on the 3ds and Wii should be quite large. A larger map would be good and some extra features that were absent from previous outings would be nice as well.
