Tweet #14: Working at the Coffee Shop

6 years ago 4 Comments

In this new tweet, we can see that the player is serving a cup of coffee to Shizue. From what I can tell, you can work a part-time job in Brewster’s Coffee Shop serving coffee for the town’s citizens. As for how you are compensated for your work, that is unknown. Perhaps you can get free coffee any time you want! Or, maybe just a normal Bell wage.

For further proof that is this is Brewster’s Coffee Shop, you can see the edge of his character model on the left side of the screenshot. Looks like you’ll be working alongside him!

Google Translation:

Hmm considered, Hello! I’m just going to rest a little with a cup of coffee now, and Take in a cafe! Favorite flavor, coffee Please be part-time job are better today ~ ♪ I’m very delicious

Tweets #12 and #13: Fortune Cookies

6 years ago 1 Comment

These new tweets are talking about the new Fortune Cookies added in Animal Crossing 3DS. From what I can tell these Fortune Cookies are sold at Timmy and Tommy’s store for the cost of two 3DS Play Coins. (these are the coins you get for walking with the system)

When you open the Fortune Cookie, there is a note (the fortune!) inside. Apparently, what the note says will affect your game in some way.

Tweet #11: Minerals

6 years ago 2 Comments

I’m liking this little surprise! It seems that in addition to the standard fossils, it’ll be possible to excavate various minerals from the ground. In this case, some Emerald can be seen behind the text box in the screenshot. How cool is that?!?

UPDATE: Apparently, they might actually come from rocks instead of the ground like fossils based on the text in the image. It roughly translates to “Hm…? Something came out of the broken rock…?”.

Translation by Saratoga/mattmagician:

Big news! Just now in town, we just excavated an emerald! This picture is proof! Now there’s even more underground!

Tweet #10: Miniature Fossils

6 years ago 1 Comment

Looks like fossils can now be miniaturized if you wish once you have all of the parts. Instead of donating or selling fossils, you can place them on a table or something in a miniature form!

Translation by Saratoga/mattmagician:

Hello! This morning I ran into somebody who found a fossil! They took it to the museum to identify it.♪ When that’s done, you can donate it, sell it, or keep it. I guess it really depends on the person. Recently though, it’s popular to collect all the parts of a dinosaur, and “remake” it into a model figure!
