So, here I was up late because allergies and just minding my own business when the official Splatoon twitter posts this followed by the official Animal Crossing twitter with these posts. Those are new villagers. New Callie and Marie themed villagers. Plus items. First I thought, new DLC for Happy Home Designer? We’ve seen new villagers put in that way and gotten items that way as well. That’d make sense, right? (And would be pretty cool, honestly)
But then I realized the website is the one for New Leaf and actually, this is the New Leaf DLC and special towns page (which also mentioned an update to the Nintendo village which happened earlier this month so that is why we are taking a trip there too). From what I could tell, there is an update coming this fall that adds new features and Amiibo functionality. Besides hinting about villager cosplay,
we also see Marshall being used to get or turned into Wisp? (Or maybe a different ghost?) It is Wisp! And it seems he cues the Amiibo tapping. And yes, it seems you can summon villagers to move into your town using the Amiibo cards (which is amazing and something I expected to happen for future games–not in an update to New Leaf). Not to mention other cool collaboration things…
I’m really curious about it and excited, but also nervous as I just finished my goals and if any of it is time-oriented, I’ll need to play over a year’s worth of gameplay and hope nobody moves. That is kind of terrifying.
But yes, until we learn more (
and I sure hope we get this update unlike the Style Savvy 2 update that was Japan only, considering the English twitter mentioned it as well, we should be good!), I’m going to just try and stay positive. At the very least, considering it does come out in Fall, I do find it will be very likely it will be connected in some way to the mobile Animal Crossing game we’ll be getting.
So, after nearly three years, I finally got all gold badges! I’m so happy.
But yes, let’s get to these lovely lines from Phineas…
You can also watch me talking to Phineas with this lovely highlight from the stream I did today! (A link to the full stream is in the description of the video)
And to finish it off… All of the lovely badges:
And my final playtime:
Yay! With that, the game is finally finished for me. Catalog complete, town done, all gold badges… Everything is finished. I might still play time to time to play with friends and/or do Dream Suite stuff, but for now, I can finally relax 🙂 And also get back to Happy Home Designer!
After catching at least 422 extra fish, I finally got the Fishing badge from Phineas:
Now, I just have Diving left. According to my count, I have 778 left to catch. Hopefully I can do it!
Though… not the one I expected. So, I managed to get to 5,000 bugs and Phineas showed up!:
But he still didn’t give me the fish badge which is… very odd :/ Even if my count was slightly off, I should’ve caught more than enough to make up for it and it shouldn’t have been that far off to not get it. Even now, I’ve caught over 200 more fish and still have yet to get the badge from him which makes me worry it may end up being glitched like my tree was for a while.
If I catch 3,000 fish again and still don’t get it, it’s definitely glitched…but I’m really upset that it has come to this.
At the very least, I definitely accomplished another badge. And one will hopefully really be done soon and then I can fully work on diving.
So, if you stopped by my stream today, you may already know what this is about, but if not… Well, for those who watched Rainy’s streams or knew her from TBT or elsewhere (or met her through Zed’s streams years ago like I did), you may have heard that she took a break due to medical issues. Unfortunately, she didn’t make it and passed away this year 🙁 I decided to try and visit her towns through Dream Suite today to honor just how much she put into the Animal Crossing games and how much she loved them. Rest in Peace, Rainy.
To go with stream itself, I also took quite a few pictures in each of her towns to make a post here. If you have the time, I hope you will visit them too.
