So go on the ESOP and download it? Why do you need a card that gives you a code?
Just japan so far I think, we don't seem to have them in the UK at least yet
Competition leading to lower prices. As an example, E-shop titles tend to cost 45 euros, yet the majority of games in the UK market tends to go as low as 18 pounds (22 euros) in a few weeks, sometimes not even that long (I recall picking games for that price at release).
I would love if shops here actually sold those, I find it's the best of both worlds, competition and digital content.
Animal Crossing's setup makes it ideal to be a game on the system without need for the cartridge. Will be the first retail game I download on my 3DS once it's released. Do we know the game's file size?
If I had anything to say, I would make AC a system App on the next Nintendo Handheld. It's the quintessential handheld social game. Hell at the very least they should launch the next handheld with an AC game.
You know, the internet needs more animal crossing gifs.
Im surprised there´s not too many out there
Props to Sony for doing custom art for their download codes. A really pleasurable retail experience, in comparison to Nintendo's phoned in "let's just put a game box on a card" when you don't even get a box out of it.
It's designed around visiting your town (ie playing) frequently, so having it with you all the time makes it easy to put in some time each day w/o worrying about a cart.
The game moves in real-time, so when it's 5 pm in the real world, it's 5 pm in the game. Stuff happens at different times of the day, so you may open it a few times per day. Each time would probably be only 10-15 minutes long, so it really works well to be able to start it for a few minutes, do what you need to, and then put it back up to go back to the game in the cartridge slot.
Yeah. Things change every day, so if you're wanting to get something specific out of the store or wanting a certain even to happen, you may need to wait. Best option is to just play it every single day for a little bit at a time, so you get the most variety.
Wow! excellent art! what games are these?
I was on the fence about downloading Animal crossing, because I dont really pour enough time into the series to warrant a full price purchase, but i think i just might buy it this time around
I have to admit, I haven't played any Animal Crossing games since the Gamecube game because I figured they'd never really changed enough to catch my interest, but having this as a downloadable always on the system, I might be tempted to bite.
They only changed to make them worse, so you didn't miss much. This one looks like an actual change of substance in the game, so good time to get back on the train (or bus or whatever you arrive in town on now).
Really!?! Along with the dropping of NES games and no more island (also fixed), this was the biggest gripe about the post-GCN AC downgrades. Great to hear they're finally bringing them back!
