Nintendo Selects: Animal Crossing: City Folk - Wii

Newly Released Nintendo Selects game. Popular with families.
Recent customer review: All in all, I highly recommend it. It is not violent, it is family friendly and it promotes interaction with others. Especially fun to interact with people from all over the world. Tip - For interaction, purchase with Wii Speak Microphone.


Key Game Features

There's Always Something New To Do: In the living, breathing world of Animal Crossing: City Folk, days and seasons pass in real time, so there's always something to discover. Catch fireflies in the summer, go trick-or-treating on Halloween or hunt for eggs on Bunny Day. If you're in the mood for something a little faster paced, take a bus to a new urban city area that's unique to Animal Crossing: City Folk. There you can catch a show at the theater or check out the sales at Gracie's boutique. But if you don't show your face back home for too long, your neighbors will miss you.

Play With and Hear Up to Four Friends: Up to four people from your household can live and work together to build the perfect town. Design clothes and patterns, write letters and post messages on the bulletin board for each other, or play online using your broadband connection and invite up to three friends to visit your town using Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. With the new optional Wii Speak microphone (sold separately), it's like you're all in the same room. The microphone sits atop the sensor bar and picks up the conversation of everyone in the room to encourage a more inclusive experience.

Get to Know Your Neighbors: The heart of Animal Crossing: City Folk is building relationships with the animals in your town as well as with other players. Befriend your animal neighbors by exchanging letters, gifts and favors. Animals can also move from town to town, bringing their memories and stories from their old towns with them. And since animals are notoriously loose-lipped, they spill all the juicy details.

Express Your Personal Style: Customize your town, your house and yourself by collecting bugs, fish, fossils, art, furniture, clothes and accessories. You can also go to the salon in the city to change your hairstyle and get a Mii makeover. Plus, if you design clothes in the tailor's shop, animals will wear them and maybe even bring them to other towns. Your Neighbors Familiar faces such as K.K. Slider, Tom Nook, Blathers and Mr. Resetti all appear, as well as a bunch of new characters like Festivale host Pavé and Bug-Off judge Bud. Many characters who occasionally visited your town in previous Animal Crossing games have now set up permanent shop in the city, so you can see them anytime.

Special Powers, Weapons, Moves & Features: Use the Wii Remote pointer to type letters, use items, draw designs for clothing or wallpaper, drag clothing or items onto your characters, interact with animals or objects, or lead your character around the world. Use Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection to hang out in real time with up to three of your friends. You can also send them e-mails and text messages from the game. Play at different times of the year to experience different activities, holidays and seasons. And when visiting a friend in another country, experience the holidays native to their culture.

Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Up to four people can play together in real time via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. The host opens his or her gate to allow friends into the town, where they can perform all sorts of activities: fish, write letters to townsfolk, shop at the store, swap items, play hide-and-seek ... anything. Up to four players can interact in real-time, communicating via text chat, mic chat and emoticons.

WiiConnect24: Using WiiConnect24, you can buy and sell items to friends by participating in silent auctions, view actual players' homes in the Happy Room Academy office or send letters to other players' towns.

Crazily and stupidly addictive June 3, 2011
Reviewer: Sara Smolinski  
Thank god I got this as a Christmas present. If I hadn't, I'd be bouncing off the walls all through the school day waiting to play this dumb game.
Why a dumb game? Well, the concept is amazingly simple. You live in a little town (mine was christined Jamaica by my little sister in honor of our upcoming trip to the actual island) in a little house. You can fish, dig for treasure, hunt bugs, and do favors for neighbors (all of which are cute little animals that vary depending on which type of town you ended up with). You have to pay off the mortgage for your house. You can chat it up with residents, visit the local museum, or go shopping. If that gets boring, you can always decorate your house with the seemingly unlimited amounts of rugs, wallpapers, and furniture. Sounds kinda redundant, huh? It's not.
What really makes this game fun? Three things. First of all, the detail in this game is amazing. The towns residents don't just interact with you, they interact with eachother. Several times a day I'll walk into an area to see one character whisper something to another, resulting in either one or both of them getting extremely angry (you can't talk to them while they're like this!) They'll also give eachother presents, and gossip behind eachother's backs. Also, if you share the town with another player (I share with my sister) the town's residents will tend to favor one of you over the other (e.g., a hippo named Lulu loves bragging to me about my sister, showing me her letters, and gushing about favors she did). Secondly, the town is bursting with surprises. You may start a conversation with a character only to have them suddenly give you a gift. New characters may appear, to move in or just visit. My favorite is a disgruntled mole that shows up and spazzes every time I restart the game. Because how would you feel if someone just started your whole world over again? Finally, the real time aspect of the game is great. On Sundays a warthog comes through the town selling turnips. On Saturday nights a guitar playing dog cranks out tunes. On holidays, there are celebrations (for example, I recently got a notice about a New Year's bash at the wishing well). Want to visit a resident? If it's past their bedtime, you're out of luck.
So it sounds like a kid's game? No way. It appeals to little ones (Preschoolers will adore the simple things, like shaking trees, collecting seashells, and moving furniture), grade-schoolers (the museum curator spews interesting facts, and it's always fun to interact with town residents), and teenagers and adults (there's a surprising amount of strategy involved!). What's also great is that you can never "beat" this game. Like The Sims, you basically play until you get sick of it.
I strongly reccomend this game to ANYONE of ANY AGE. Very addictive and endlessly fun, this game is worth your money!

Good ole fashion fun May 2, 2011
Reviewer: Senor butter  
This game is fun down to the last weed you pull from the ground. I make the mistake of playing this for hours on end but the strange thing is you don't feel bad about doing so. I feel like that is the ultimate compliment for a vidgea game.

It's the second life March 5, 2011
Reviewer: Ginny  
This game is so much fun! It's strange to think a game like this would be so enjoyable.

Basically you start your life in a new town with neighbors and all you have to do is live a second life as I like to put it. The neighbors are quirky and hilarious!

You start the first day in your new town working at the general shop for a greedy raccoon. All the people in this game are animals of some sort which only adds to the mood.

You get some basic tools like an axe, bug catching net, fishing rod, shovel etc.
You use these items to fill your collections, like your bug and fish collection. You can use the shovel to dig up the ground to find fossils, money and a lot of other stuff. You can design your town any way you like, and you can also design your house which is always fun! You can travel to other towns (only on the memory card) of your family member or friends. This was a disappointment because I'm the only one who plays Animal Crossing.

I haven't gotten any of the sequels to this game for DS but I hope they are as good as the original because it was a lot of fun and I've put in at least 200 hours into this game.

If you have some time to kill each day and you're a casual gamer then this game is just for you.

Who needs reality? February 8, 2011
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
Animal Crossing is not your average everyday video game. In Animal Crossing you play as yourself in a digital town that is populated by humanoid animals. There's no real end, and there is no story. There's just you, and errands to run, fish and bugs to catch, fossils to find, and letters to write. I'm not sure quite what it is, but I know I like it. If you start to play, chances are you'll have to play it every day, because you never know what you're going to miss. If the Sims seems a little too hardcore for you, I highly recommend Animal Crossing. But then, I highly recommend Animal Crossing to anyone. Once it gets its hooks into you, you'll never go another day without playing it.
