Ithaelia still kind of feels like a deserted island, but with the museum being planned, and my villagers and I moving into homes instead of tents, it’s starting to feel more homey, at least. 🏠 This is an account of days 2 & 3 on my island!
I’m titling this post thus, because moreso than any other Animal Crossing game, it really does feel like we are given this little slice of the world to completely make all our own, from scratch, in the most peaceful and beautiful way I’ve ever experienced. In every new ‘main’ town (think the Dafdilly and Citàlune archives on this blog), I think it’s very special to record these early memories so that I can look back on them years down the road. :’) So that is what I’m going to do here~!
After development was confirmed for “Animal Crossing Switch” (as we’ve affectionately called it) back in September 2018, we finally got our first look at it during Nintendo’s E3 Direct and Treehouse game footage this year! Plus, a release date: March 20, 2020! Since it’s such exciting news, I thought I’d write a post about my thoughts and reactions, but feel free to not read further if you’re not interested in any spoilers for the next game. *image heavy* as well, might be best viewed off mobile.
I know that this isn’t technically the first time I’ve seen green grass in Suncombe, but it was especially exciting to see again because I only really started playing in this town last Autumn! This early-Spring grass is especially warm and vibrant, too, I love it! 💚 In April it will turn a deeper and more turquoise shade of green, so I’ll enjoy this current grass while I can!
Winter reached its peak in Suncombe with the festive, week-long Bright Nights event in February, and now we’re getting closer and closer to Spring. 🌸 There are a few things to cover from the end of January, too, since my last post on Suncombe only went until January 15th.
Suncombe is my new(ish) Wild World town, which might sound strange to say here in 2019, but I’ve been really craving playing in and developing this town! Sometimes you just have to follow your heart and do what makes you happy. 🙂 Part of the reason why I’ve been craving playing in this town in particular is because it’s one of my favorite Wild World towns I’ve come across, and I’ve done *lots* of town-resetting over the years.
I had some time off around Thanksgiving, so in some of my down-time I thought it would be fun to finish Franklin’s home in Happy Home Designer. I had started to design a home for Franklin a while back, but didn’t finish it to my satisfaction. I know it will be time to move to Christmas hype, but I hope Thanksgiving is a recent enough memory to forgive my posting this now. xD If you would like to visit, the code is 0979-7789-472. (I don’t get the impression projects are kept very long in the system, though.)
I finished Citàlune! :’) I’ve worked on this town for years, but around Autumn 2017 I got a fire lit under me to work towards finishing it once and for all. If you would like to visit yourself first without being ‘spoiled,’ feel free to give Luna the address 4F00-001F-F5E6. But if you’d like to tour the moon side of town with me, read on!

Well, I think it’s about time I tell a little about my first experiences with the new New Leaf update that dropped a little over a month ago! I think we can all agree that the scope of the update was more than expected, and impressive with all that was added.
