With all the UK stores showing off pre-order bonuses for New Horizons, hopefully stores in other countries start announcing some too.

Here's hoping we have more island information before the end of the week...

It's been 8 long years.

I feel like New Leaf came out way long ago, but it was only mid-2013 (US)!
I have been listening to a TON of AC music this weekend (and currently a rainy day mix on youtube).

Starting to make the wait longer for myself when I was doing so good last year to constantly distract myself with other games (Thank you Dragon Quest Builders 2!).

Here's to hoping this can grip me as tightly as all previous entries. Wild World is the one I spent the MOST amount of time with (online play was crazy when paired with an AC-focused message board I frequented at the time). City Folk was such an embarrassment though. New Leaf was nice and not iterative, but the online components just weren't enough of an expansion from WW. Here's to hoping they can really take some hints from other successful adjacent games to bump that experience up.

I quite like the pins Nintendo UK Store is offering, but they are the most expensive outlet.

Otherwise I may go for a cheaper price and get the Isabelle keyring 356games or Simplygames are offering.

Anyone with a Japanese copy want to help me get oni masks for the bean festival February 3rd? Since release I've want them, but have never been able to get them or even trade or buy them.

Anyone know where save games are likely to be stored on Switch AC?

I'm looking at physical or digital and my only reason to go physical atm is if the saves are stored on the cart and something happens to my switch I haven't lost my AC game but if the saves are on the console for both digital and physical then it really makes no difference I guess (and it would be nice to have AC always on there along with whatever else I'm playing)

Saves are on the console with Switch games.

Cool, tyvm.

Seems digital is the way to go then (here's hoping Nintendo move forward with cloud saves etc)

Yeah I hope so too. I lost a 250+ hour New Leaf save because I had a digital copy and I lost all my saves. It wasn't a problem with most games since the 3DS has cloud saves, but not for AC. They already said AC won't support cloud saves on Switch either, but that would suck so much.

This is the dilemma I'm facing. After new leaf I'm still terrified to go digital.

..If only there was a way to manually back up that data to a PC..

Anyway I’ve gone digital with shopto so bring on the preload Nintendo !

Anyone got any thoughts on if we’ll see those Hori accessories in the U.K.?

Looks like we can have stairs on the island instead of just slopes like in previous games.

Being able to build and place our own steps would be cool (in addition to slopes). Animal Crossing is at its best when there is an "in addition to."

I picked up a switch lite this weekend to compliment my OG switch. Can’t wait to dig into my first animal crossing. Have they said if this supports cloud saves or will I have to fully transfer my save back and forth?

There used to be a site to play Animal Crossing music hourly based on your time, but it stopped working.

So I made another one.

(Enable autoplay of video for this site in your browser for best results)

I plan to actually record my own proper 60 minute versions of the tunes direct from each of the ROMs rather than using someone else's, and I will add all the mainline AC games, it's just New Leaf and the Gamecube one for now.

I used to have this installed! Thank you for both the reminder that I missed this and for doing the work to bring it back. Will definitely check it out.

Edit - wasn’t this a browser extension though?

I'm checking the site out right now from NYC, it's 10:30PM here but the site is loading up 3AM tracks!

I wanted it to use local time so thanks for the heads up.

Edit: Fixed. :)

Edit2: Added City Folk and some date-based events.

Is there anyone that’s been playing New Leaf lately in the wind up to New Horizons that knows of a site that has a repository of QR Codes for clothing? I suddenly want to dress my character as Mr. Robot, but I suck at clothing designing. :/

Not sure if these will have what you are looking for but Tumblr and Pinterest have a bunch of codes on the site.
