Catching Snowflakes in Animal Crossing: New Leaf

5 years ago 23 Comments

It’s Winter now and today we’ve got detailed information on a brand new feature in Animal Crossing: New Leaf! What’s that feature? The picture above should give a hint! =O If you consider details to be spoilers, do not read or click below here!

During Winter in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, when it snows special snowflakes will fall with a sound effect occasionally. You’ll want to get your net out quickly and try to catch the snowflake to store in your inventory! (because snowflakes totally wouldn’t melt in your pockets… oh Nintendo)

Once you have some snowflakes, you’re going to need to make a Snowman. Not just any Snowman though, you need a Mother Snowman. Yes, there’s a family now. Each of these different types of Snowman will help you in different ways.

Now that you have a Mother Snowman built, you will be able to exchange your snowflakes to her for a piece of the Ice Series. What’s the Ice Series? Look no further than below:

Isn’t it beautiful? If you collect enough snowflakes over the course of Winter and exchange them, you’ll have the full Ice Series! And yes, the old Snowman Series is still in the game through a different member of the Snowman family.

    Just when I thought that I couldn’t want this game any more than I already do…

  • Laughxtreme

    What you don’t is that the animals get a unusual high off the snowflakes and a snowflake-drug ring is going around. You get the snowflakes, they give the bells:”(

      I guess this is the perfect set to describe the release of this game in other countries… Nintendo is really cold. xD Okay bad joke, but still.. Nintendo should get to work on releasing it (I know there are other games they are also working on, but waiting a couple of years for a game is ridiculous.) We didn’t have to wait that long for the release of the past two Animal Crossing games.. Heck, we got City Folk in the states before Japan, and Europe.. that is if I am not mistaken. Either way, I think they showed off the original trailer (The one with the original launch line-up for the 3DS) a bit too early. It might be a marketing ploy, but I think Nintendo should have shown some patience with the presentation of the game. Either way this game looks awesome, and I can’t wait till it comes out in the states, and Europe. (I’m in the U.S., but I’m not going to keep the Europeans out of my hopes as well, since I like to WiFi with some people in Europe as well.)

        The point is, if it came out earlier. IT WOULDN’T BE AMAZING AS IT IS now. I understand we have to wait around Mayish, Junish but it will be MUCH MORE amazing.
