Hey it’s Fuchsia here with a video of the top 10 things that I want to see in an upcoming Animal Crossing game. As a longtime fan of the series, I’ve seen it grow and change, and I look forward to its next installment, and I put a lot of thought into it. So let’s get started. Number one: Different Terrains We saw this in Happy Home Designer but as far as main series installments go, we’ve been left with the standard grass and trees town. How great would it be to have a rocky mountain village or a lush tropical resort or a desert oasis? It would add even more variety to a game that’s already about customizing your town how you want it. As an example, here’s my hacked town of Sundrop. Just adding palm trees to the town adds so much. Number two: More Environment Elements We all know the pink cherry blossoms in spring and the aurora and meteor showers in the winter, but there’s more to be explored. The occasional windy day sending leaves tumbling through the air would be a great touch, as well as falling leaves in the autumn. We’ve already got the springtime petals, all it would need is a quick texture change. And to take a cue from the Sims, what about being able to make piles of leaves to jump into? It would be a great unique feature for the fall. Number three: Plot Picking For the first time, New Leaf introduced villagers being able to put their house anywhere in town, which made for many frustrations. The Welcome Amiibo update fixed this a little, but please let us have an easier way to pick where our dreams move into! Number four: Decorating Outside I’m not asking for much, just three or four spaces around a villagers house that can optionally be used for regular furniture items. I’d be happy with this even being confined to the players’ houses. Either way, it would add more uniqueness to each town’s design and really show off each player’s personalities Number Five: Skin Tones If anything on this list is a must-have, it’s this one. The default skin tone being the palest color and having to spend time each day tanning to get a different skin tone is outdated and racist. You can pick your skin tone in both Happy Home Designer and Pocket Camp, so I don’t see why it wouldn’t be included going forward. On the other hand, New Leaf has a wider and darker range of skin tones available, so I definitely want all 16 tones to be available in the new game. Number Six: Bat Villagers Deer villagers were added in New Leaf, so why not bat villagers in the next game? An added bonus would be if they were nocturnal, adding extra playability to those late night hours when usually everyone’s asleep and the shops are closed. Here are some adorable designs from a couple of artists who agree with me. Number Seven:Happy Home Academy I assume the Happy Home Academy will come back in some form, but I wonder how it’ll look without StreetPass. In New Leaf, you can get presents from people you’ve streetpassed, as well as explore their house, question their design choices, and order furniture. I love this feature, and hope it remains intact in some way. I’d also like to take a cue from my favorite game, Fantasy Life, where streetpassed players show up around the main town and say cute things about the area. I’d love to see something like this on Main Street along with our former villagers. Number Eight:Holidays There are plenty of holidays and events in the game, but they’re oddly spaced and you can go weeks without one. I’d like to incorporate some of the old holidays from Wild World such as the week-long Flower Festival in spring and Yay Day where villagers complement each other all day. It would keep the calendar flowing, although there would have to be a balance between too few and too many. Number Nine: Main Street and Public Buildings We all love Main Street in New Leaf, but it would be great if we had some public buildings to make our own on it as well. Happy Home Designer had us designing a hospital, school, concert hall, and plenty of other amenities. Perhaps these could be unlocked and upgraded as you progress in town, like many of the shops in New Leaf. Number Ten: Celeste’s Observatory In Wild World and City Folk, Celeste had her own observatory in the museum where you can look at the stars and make your own constellations. This is taken out in New Leaf, doing her the great injustice of giving her a boring gift shop instead. Please, give Celeste her observatory back! There are plenty of other things I want but this is my top ten. What do you want it in a new Animal Crossing game? Please leave a like if you enjoyed this list.
