KK’s Famous Tunes Are Now Club Music?!
Every Saturday night you can enjoy listening to KK Slider’s music at “Club 444.” (Note: Club 444 in Japanese is referred to as “Club Shi Shou” or “Club See Show” – it’s a cute pun.) From Sunday to Friday, during D.J. KK Time, you can enjoy KK’s normal sound with a club music twist!

First look at the Town Map and Bottom Screen

10 years ago 7 Comments

Famitsu has two new screenshots up on their website that give us our first look at the bottom screen! Up until now, every screenshot released had been only of the top screen. With these new screenshots we’re able to see the Map for the Town and the Island.

It looks like you’ll be able to access the chat menu at any time no matter which screen you’re on by pressing the green bubble at the bottom. Certainly will be handy when playing online. I also noticed that your Town Tree is an icon on the map, kind of like the Wishing Well from the Gamecube game.

Also, what is that big orange button on the right? Just a thought but maybe this is only half of the map and pressing that goes to the other half of the map.
