Tweet #42: Heart Shaped Stump

6 years ago 2 Comments

Not a whole lot to say about this tweet. Check it out below.

Tweet Translation:

Everyone look! If you look closely, doesn’t the top of the stump look like a heart?! It’s kind of rare and I was so happy that I snapped a picture.

Tweet #41: Villager House Construction Site

6 years ago 5 Comments

Good news folks, a new villager is moving into town! How do I know? The big house construction site in town for Mint! Hooray!

It looks like we’ll know ahead of time when a new villager is moving in by spotting their house construction site by Tom Nook. One has to wonder if we have any control over it. Can we help out to speed it up?!?

Tweet Translation:

Good afternoon everyooone! This morning there was a site set up for a new house in the village, so a lot of people went to check it out. Seems like someone named Mint will be moving in there. I can’t wait to meet them and find out what they are like!

Tweet #40: Jimmy

6 years ago 6 Comments

This tweet is showing off one of the new guy villager personalties in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. We don’t really know exactly what the personality is besides… well, hitting on the ladies. Haha.

Tweet Translation:

Jimmy was really popular with the girls today! He is always so full of confidence, sweet-talking the girls. They said it’s perfect because it warms their hearts during the cold seasons, so I guess it depends on the person?

Speech Bubble Translation:

Ah, sorry sorry, I got lost there for a second..in your eyes

Tweet #39: The Gardener

6 years ago 12 Comments

You know the Garden Shop that you can open up in the city? Well, apparently you can ask the shop’s owner (Lazy) to pull all the weeds in your town! I have to wonder if Wisp will still be around now…

Tweet Translation:

Good morning, everyooone! The day we finally get to welcome our new mayor is almost here, so I asked Lazy from the garden shop to pull all the weeds! I took a peek partway through to see how it was going and he was sleeping, so was worried if it would ever get done, but he cleaned everything up perfectly.

No Voice Chat in Animal Crossing: New Leaf

6 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.

(here’s the Japanese Q&A page)

Tweet #38: Maiko

6 years ago 8 Comments

A girl has been seen wondering different villages taking the train from village to village. She’s been asking people for suggestions of other villages.

Speculation: This girl has a surprising resemblance to Katie/Kaitlin from Wild World and City Folk. Katie would get lost in other villagers and her mother Kaitlin would come to pick her up. The character in the tweet may be a sister or other relative of Katie or Kaitlin.

Tweet Translation:

There was a girl I hadn’t seen before so I thought she might be lost, but turns out she wasn’t! She says she takes the train by herself and travel to different villages! She seemed to have been going around asking for suggestions of other villages, and it looks like a kind person showed her the way to another village somewhere.

Speech Bubble Translation:

Aaaaah~, I’m not lost, I’m Maiko!
