Tweet #5: Able Sister’s Clothing Section

7 years ago 3 Comments

In this screenshot we seem to be getting a look at the Able Sister’s shop. Or to be more precise, the clothing section. Because of the new taller characters, we will be able to purchase shirts and pants as separate clothing items.

Google Translation:

I went in search of winter clothes to a tailor in San lunch! There was a pants nice, after I tried, but I went back and foil intact, have forgotten was in lunch after all, ended up I get dressed soon back in the office ….

Tweet #4: Winter Clothing

7 years ago 1 Comment

Nintendo is showing off some new winter clothing in this screenshot. It’s looking pretty good! Really liking the sweater personally.

Some of you might be feeling some deja vu right now. That’s because this seems to be a recycled screenshot that was already released. Oh well, posting it for consistency.

As usual, we’ve got a rough Google Translation:

Considered Hmm, good morning! In the mid-morning and evening cold of October! Did you want to go to see the winter clothes to Mr. tailor later? Long sleeve, short sleeve, sleeveless, one-piece, skirts, shorts, pants … so long awaited, ♪ I want to enjoy the fashionable

Tweet #3: Halloween Candy

7 years ago 3 Comments

Keeping in tradition with the previous games, Timmy and Tommy will be selling Halloween Candy during the month of October for the Halloween event! Check it out in the screenshot below:

As usual, the hilariously near-useless Google Translation is here for us:

I bought her in preparation for the Halloween candy! Vigorously entered the shop, “saysきちbeans! ~ I make candy chan” I had been saying! “You’re also grainきちme …”. I’m a twin myself, it is hard to distinguish between those two … unlike us.

Tweet #2: Swimming for Oysters

This time Nintendo is showing off the new swimming feature found in Animal Crossing 3DS! You can swim in the ocean to find things such as the oyster pictured below.


Everyone, Good morning! Today while I was walking along the beach, I saw somebody that was free diving (using the swim suit to go swimming), and they collected a really delicious looking Oyster! The marine suit (bathing suit) that they bought at the Souvenir shop really looked good on them♪

Here is a very rough Google translation of the tweet into English:
