Tweet #33: Music Box

6 years ago 2 Comments

A giant clam shell taken to R Parkers along with a music track can be made into a… music box! Awesome.

Tweet Translation:

My remake order is finished! A giant clam shell together with music makes a lovely music box? You can enjoy them a few different ways: to play your favorite songs, to decorate your room, and as a music box!

Speech Bubble Translation:

Should I take the ‘K.K. Milonga’ I ordered home?

Tweet #32: Giant Clam Shell

Sometimes you’ll find a giant clam shell on the beach. If you take it to R Parkers along with a certain something else, then you can have it remade into something really nice looking.

 

Tweet Translation:

Good morning everyoone! I found a giant clam shell when I was talking a walk on the beach this morning. If you take a giant clam shell and a certain ‘something’ to R-Parkers, you can get it remade into something really nice! I’ll let you know what it is when it’s finished!

Iwata: No paid DLC for Animal Crossing: New Leaf

6 years ago 5 Comments

With Nintendo now producing and selling paid DLC for some of their games (Fire Emblem, New Super Mario Bros. 2), there have been concerns regarding this for Animal Crossing. Imagine paying real money for more furniture.

That’s no longer a concern though as Iwata has confirmed that after an intensive discussion with the development team a decision has been made to avoid selling DLC/add-on content for a cost. Most likely the free DLC support that Wild World and City Folk had will continue with New Leaf in the future.

The exact quote from Iwata:

For example, some might say that it would be unbelievably profitable to provide paid add-on content for “Animal Crossing: New Leaf,” but we were concerned that a game in which you enjoy yourself more by the power of money would not be suitable, and we decided to avoid such a feature after an intensive discussion with the development team.

Tweet #31: Rover

Rover is aboard the train just like in the original Animal Crossing. He’s quite chatty about where you’re headed so don’t miss your stop! You can also spot a monkey who is most likely Porter or a co-worker of Porter in the background.

Tweet Translation:

This afternoon I had an errand to run so took the train. On the train, Rover came and asked me where I was going and then we really started chatting, so much so that I almost missed my stop~!!!

Speech Bubble Translation:

So, Shizue… Where are you headed to?
