No Voice Chat in Animal Crossing: New Leaf

10 years ago 17 Comments

After City Folk offered voice chat through Wii Speak, some have hoped that New Leaf would support voice chat through the 3DS microphone. Unfortunately, this is not the case.

In a Question and Answer page on the Japanese site, it’s revealed that the game offers no Voice Chat. Of course, you can still use the keyboard on the second screen to type just like before. Still, it would have been nice to have voice chat.

Iwata: No paid DLC for Animal Crossing: New Leaf

10 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.
