I appreciate your taking the time to sate my curiosity
Ymirrae and I were both in middle school when we (independently—didn’t meet each other until college) got Animal Crossing on Gamecube. Both loved it. But neither of us ever felt like other iterations of the game ever managed to capture that same magic feeling of the first.
This game seems different. From what little I’ve looked into it, it seems like I’d enjoy it. And maybe enough to justify the expense in a way that Sword and Shield, after the heartbreak of the extended-tutorial that was the Alolan region, did not.
The only thing that I didn’t like about the original was the inability to stop some of my favorite animals from leaving. But like you said, that’s just life sometimes
But I’ve heard that you can recruit specific critters now? If true—and of I can rerecruit ones who leave, that would definitely be one in the YES, I AM BUYING THIS column.
The graphics also don’t look like I’d have trouble keeping track of my character the way past curvature-style stuff made difficult for my eyes (is the world 3D “flat”, or 3D “round” in this version, would be of interest to me).
Is it a game where she and I would play on the same island, or separate, to have the most fun? Honestly, if possible, we’d probably do both—have a shared island, and one for each of us, respectively
Purely single-player still, or is simultaneous-play co-op available?
I don’t know—I probably won’t be able to find a Switch for sale anywhere, anyway, but if all the nitty-gritty lines up for me, it’s a strong possibility I’ll try. It’s been too long since I’ve talked to Blathers and collected entire catalogues of digital furniture
