Straight from Nintendo president Satoru Iwata's livestreamed Nintendo Direct event today, here's more of Animal Crossing for 3DS, which Japan gets this November and the rest of the world gets next year. Clothes-designing is nice, but, wow, look at those houses!
In order to fit in players' lives, Animal Crossing allows people to customise the store hours and pace of life in their town. For example, players can select choices like "The village that gets up early" or "The village that never sleeps". That way, Animal Crossing can match the real-life rhythm of its players.
Other new additions include allowing players to design clothes in greater detail -- turn those clothes into QR codes and exchange them with other players! And as mentioned above, it has better houses -- with better customised furniture.
