Daisybutter - UK Style and Fashion Blog: animal crossing diary, animal crossing new leaf review, animal crossing new leaf uk release
Animal Crossing: New Leaf, available worldwide now for Nintendo 3DS. RRP £26.99 on average. Shop it here.

Following on from my first Animal Crossing: New Leaf diary entry (read here), I've given the game a little more play and knocked up a good 15+ hours on there. Oops. Honestly, even my brother has whacked out our City Folk edition and commanded full use of our games room TV! So, now that Animal Crossing has taken a next-level grip of our household, here's my next-level thoughts…

Within a couple more days of play, it's very easy to catch bugs, fish and nab some apples from the trees in the town to sell for Bells. Not gonna lie, I'm a bit jealous when I see other people's fruit variations as these vary from each character's play! I headed to Nook's Homes to see infamous Tom Nook for a house upgrade, et voila, house instead of a tent.

More excitingly though, after my first three days, I noticed a random, passed out animal on my beach. Turns out you can now head to Tortimer Island where you can pick exotic fruit, catch more fish and catch bugs. I also caught my first shark of the game - yusss! So that was my weekend... You can also go on island 'tours', which are mini games to earn island currency to buy exclusive items, and I believe you can play online with three other players in these too!

Heading over to my usual town from the Island now to sort out my house upgrade - I'm on a two-level house, next step: mansion, be mine! - and donate my oh so exotic bugs and beetles to the Museum. Be back soon with another update of new town goings-on. 
Disclaimer: My Nintendo 3DS XL console and Animal Crossing: New Leaf game were both gifted very kindly for review by Nintendo. I have not been paid for this post and all opinions are my own.

  1. Remember how we spoke about giving in to the hype? So tempted right now! haha.
    I'm still trying to resist - dug out my DS and decided to delete my old WW game and start all over again! x

    1. Ahh you should! WW was such a perfect little game but New Leaf has so much to play with. Can't wait to share more about it. xx

  2. AH! I remember the way to get to the island in the Gamecube version was to hook up your GBA or SP to the gamecube and travel to the island, then you could carry around a portable version with you and return back into the game when you were finished. Don't forget to plant some of those exotic fruits in your town for even more Bells!!

    Tell Nintendo their marketing is working, because I would love to own a 3DS and the new Animal Crossing game. Well I'm onto playing the old one on my DS lite :] I'd like to be a Nintendo employee, I've always wanted to work with Nintendo.

    1. Ah it was so frustrating back in the day! Really enjoying it again now, although I'm hoping for even more locations in the game already. Hahah it certainly is, I'm overwhelmed at how many of my readers have plodded off to snap up a copy and a 3DS XL! xx

  3. I think the only reason I would get a 3DS is so I could play this game! I really love the limited edition Animal Crossing 3DS aswell, I have to keep talking myself out of buying it!
