The first steps

You will be welcomed by Olli in a moving train, the first provides you the question, as you say. Give here your name or a nickname, which is supported in the game of your figure. Then you have three possible answers: "Cool, right?", "Pretty, is not it?" And "So I'm not". Selects their answer latter option, you can enter the name again.

Now Olli says: "Yes, yes! As a male name fits perfectly into a genuine guy like you. "Choose you" I think so, too. ", Then it confirms that you want to play a male character. Do you choose, however, "I'm a boy!", Your character is female, however.

Then you will be asked where her outward journey: give here the name of your future city. Also, you will be shown a map of your future city, which is more or less randomly generated. If you do not like, you can let generate new maps again and again.

Then you come already with your train in the city, and are greeted by the inhabitants. The hold confuse you and keep you for the new mayor. Even if you do indicates the opposite: they do not listen to you and insist that you're the new mayor. Well, then we make the game up.

Your house

Once you're at City Hall, Melinda noticed that you have a suitable place to stay is missing that gets you in real Nook. So head north and cross the railway track (located in every city in the same place) to the shopping area. After you've talked with him, you can pick out you anywhere where you want to have your future home. We recommend in the vicinity of the town hall, so that the paths are shorter. Do you want to hear, however, ocean noise when you are in your house, then it builds directly on the ocean.

In the beginning, you will receive only a tent, get a house from Tom Nook but if you drop by the next one to two days with him. And then must be paid off, of course. Your humble abode was built, you go back to Melinda at the Town Hall, which invites you to a small festival where all city dwellers want to celebrate your arrival. Specially get her a tree that you have to plant them. This is also the time when you can save the first time. From then on you can save as your progress, which should make her a regular basis.
What happens now, can happen purely by chance. It is up to you which way you go, what you want to do it and how it's going. There is no right solution. But the aim should be clear: to build your own city and highly satisfied citizens.

In your first letter, the actual mayor speaks up and says that something got in the way and you should tell it to anyone. So he gives you his blessing. And who knows, maybe you learn at a later date, who should be mayor originally and what came between. By the way letters are not just for news, you can also send gifts to them and get some.

Next, you can again go to the town hall, where Melinda with tips waiting for you if you do not know what to do next. It suggests you may be faced (which is random) a chat with Bastian (residents are random) to keep, you should have not met him yet. Figures are to be found in their homes, when you look through windows or light smoke coming from the chimney. As long as none of the characters is asleep or sick, you only need to knock to be let. Should you not know which character lives in what house, then introduces the sign of the house and pushes A - then you will show the name. If a character is not at home, she leaves the door usually a message that what they are doing, for example, searching for food. In this case, it is somewhere to be found outdoors, where there might be edible accordingly.

Speaks most often with the characters, because they not only have a lot to tell, but also sometimes give you tips and even gifts. Every now and then you have to help them catch a fish, pick a juicy pear to propose them a chic piece of furniture or even to bring a gift to einenm other residents, for example.

Do you ignore a resident, it is possible that he simply moves to another city. Depending on whether you still hold her in time with him, you can change his mind with Gutzureden.

Unfortunately it is not possible to play two cities, but it is possible to play with several figures and profiles. Should you so wish to create a new game, the new character automatically moves to the city previously created by you and is there hailed as a new resident, but not as the new mayor. Once you're using the new profile in the city, you have to first go to City Hall and speak with Melinda, that the secretary of the mayor, the main profile. Again, one must first go back to Nook Realty (shopping street) in the north, to find accommodation.

Tips and Tricks

Time and Clock

As in the DS version, you can also in Animal Crossing: New Leaf change the time and date, this just surrounded by you in your 3DS system. The game is always based on your date and time settings, so we have 22 clock is so dark, the city comes to rest and you can hardly visit shops. Do you play for example in December, is in Animal Crossing: New Leaf snow. Accordingly, it is in the game as the summer, when it is in reality summer ... and so on.

That you can take advantage and make you cheat a little. This is of particular interest to those players who have the day no time to play and to consider only at night or in the evening with Animal Crossing. The better solution in such cases is, of course, by changing the regulation, which the residents either get up three hours earlier or three hours later to go to bed (which also affects the shutters). How you going on here, you have to decide for yourself. But remember that Animal Crossing is also using the calendar and holidays and important days takes the occasion to celebrate about.

Floating Balloon

Every now and again take a look at the sky to scan, for example, a floating balloon that contains a gift. To bring this to burst and herunterzuholen the gift so, you need a slingshot. Should you have any spin in your possession, there is a little trick: Wait until the balloon reaches the edge of a beach and is directly over the edge. Brings out your nets and smite therewith. Now your gift should land softly on the sand at the beach.

Once a day, there is a stone in the city that can break it. This one you need your shovel and this skin against the stone - which is, of course, you have to find out yourself. Then you get a crystal which neatly brings Sternies depending on the color. Alternatively, these can be used for decoration as well to revise furniture to create (in the treasure trove at Björn) and gold furniture. At the start you can you pick just one crystal per day, but as soon as the museum shop was unlocked and you have bought the silver shovel, you can also find several per day.

By the way, do not sell her your crystal and carry it around with you, you will eventually approached by a resident who wants to buy it to you. In this case you get more Sternies for sale than you would get in the mine or in rip and drag.


Supposedly to make frequent race that over time the grass is less brown and you see more and more ground. We can confirm that at this point - at least not yet. This seems to be a gradual process.

Just 16 places you have in your pocket that you can fill with your items. Although the items have some deposit with the railway station and park in your own home, but who wants to wear certain items or as many items with them (about fruit, caged animals, etc), the letters can take advantage of each one and attach items there .
