Japanese and American Nintendo Directs coming tomorrow! (October 25th)

6 years ago 11 Comments

We’ve got two Nintendo Directs coming in. First is a Japanese one at 4AM PST, then we have an American one at 7AM PST.

The American one is broadcasting at 7AM PST. The broadcast will include more information on upcoming Nintendo 3DS titles. Most likely we’ll get more details for Paper Mario and Professor Layton releasing this holiday but there’s also a chance for Animal Crossing localization news. For other time zones, it’s at 10AM EST and 3PM BST.

The Japanese one is broadcasting at 4AM PST. I’m not sure what to expect from this one. Probably Paper Mario and Animal Crossing? Maybe a new game announcement or two for next year in Japan. For other time zones, it’s at 7AM EST and Noon BST.

Tweet #22: Turnip Prices

6 years ago 1 Comment

Following up Sunday’s tweet about buying Turnips, we now see the player asking for the afternoon’s Turnip selling price at R Parkers. Good to know we won’t have to travel to the City to check the prices.

Tweet Translation by Sumwheat:

Turnip prices this afternoon were at 144 bells! The villagers are getting antsy, thinking the price might go up even more around tomorrow morning…!

Speech Bubble Translation by Sumwheat:

At this time we are buying turnips at 144 bells each

Tweet #21: Gulliver

6 years ago 7 Comments

Help! Gulliver the Sailor has collapsed on the beaches! You’ll want to help him out so he can get on his way.

Looks like Gulliver has returned to his old ways of washing up on the beach instead of piloting a UFO like in Wild World and City Folk. Click here for a video of how he was in Animal Crossing for the Gamecube.

Tweet Translation by Saratoga:

Everybody! Good morning! This morning, on the beach there was a sailor who was passed out… It seems that he lost his memory and thus has no idea where his destination is. Thank goodness that someone very kind was able to help Johnny get his memory back!

Speech Bubble Translation by Saratoga:

Where was I headed to anyway?

Tweet #20: The Post Office

Hey look, it’s the Post Office! Long time, no see. Anyway, I believe the player is at the Post Office to send a letter of thanks to their mother for delivered fruit.

Translation by Saratoga (thanks!):

I went to the Post office today to send a thank you letter to my mom, because she sent me some fruit♪ The Post office’s Pelly had previously worked at the town hall, although it wasn’t with me (**Shizue is clearly talking because of this distinction). Pelly always has a smile and works hard. I hope that I can become like her someday!

Tweet #19: Golden Fruit

We don’t know exactly how but you can grow golden versions of your town’s native fruit. For now, I’ll refer to them as Golden Fruit. Other than that, we’re mostly clueless at the moment.

Translation by Sumwheat:

Good morning everyooone! This morning some fruit arrived from my mom back home. All fruits are delicious but fruits local to the village are the only ones that will sometimes grow to be extra delicious. They look a little different as well so try looking for some!
