Weed day (9/3): - Reggie, the gardener, holds a weed day festival when the gardening shop is open. - Pick all the weeds to get a special present handmade by Reggie. - Reggie counts the number of weeds left to be picked. Harvest Festival (11/4): - Totally different from previous Animal Crossings. - Franklin the chef comes and will treat you to food if you help him out and gather ingredients. - Gather ingredients yourself or through trading things with the villagers. - Franklin will give you a special present when the food's ready. Christmas Eve (12/24): - Different from previous games. - The Mayor (the player), dresses up as Santa Claus to give the villagers presents. - Meet up with Jingle while dressed as Santa Claus to get a sack of presents for the villagers. New villagers: - Frank, male eagle, birthday is 6/1, personality is smug. - Koyuki, female tiger, 12/13 birthday, personality is energetic. - Mike, male kangaroo, 12/1 birthday, personality is stubborn. - Arthur, male lion, 8/7 birthday, personality is smart. - Tsukasa, female? sheep, 10/21 birthday, personality is mature. - Lily, female wolf, 3/24 birthday, personality is normal. - Tokio, male? ostrich, 9/23 birthday, personality is airhead. - ???, female mouse, 2/5 birthday, personality is energetic. - Osmond, male koala, 10/12 birthday, personality is smart. - ???, male hippo, 10/15 birthday, personality is smug. - Kent, brother of Shizue, works at happy home exhibit Dream Mansion - Anteater named Yumemi (dream viewer) runs the shop 24/7. - Connect to the internet and visit other players' villages from around the world. - Can head to a village based on address, the type of village you desire, or by area. - Anything that's done to the dream village won't have an impact on the actual village. - Speak to Wendell (Seiichi) the starving artist while you visit another player's dream village to get a pattern that that player created. "Best friend" registration - you and someone else register one another as best friends - you can then talk to each other even when you're not in the same village together - invite people to your village that are only registered as your best friends I find the Dream Mansion to be the best info so far. It'll make this game a whole less repetitive. The best friend registration seems nice too. *slams fist on deck Well, Nintendo, I'm sold. *Throws money on screen. DAMMIT, WHY IS NOTHING HAPPENING?
