Hands-on with Animal Crossing: City Folk
Gamespot got to go hands-on with Animal Crossing: City Folk yesterday, following the game’s announcement in the Nintendo E3 press conference. Snip:
We performed some of the usual activities, including fossil digging and weeding. We also joined Hannah in some fishing, though surprisingly, none of these controls involve waggling the remote in any way. To cast your line into the water, you hit the A button; ditto for reeling it in. Sadly, we didn’t get to leave the town and head for the city. According to Nintendo, however, the city opens up new innovations within the franchise. The most intriguing of these may be the auction house, where you and your friends can put items up for bid. You can also visit Gracie’s store, where you can buy seasonal items unavailable at other times of the year. Happily, though, she won’t be replacing the entrepreneurial Tom Nook, who will still set up shop in your town.
Shots and a movie here.
