December 2013: New DLC Available!

Hey all! I decided to play a little ACNL today to see what the new Nintendo DLC item was of the month. I was surprised to find something unexpected, a previously known DLC item that I hadn’t obtained yet, but I’ll get to that in a bit.

So, I headed over the the post office and asked about a present and was kinda bummed out to get a tree-stump chair.

Image

For those that have followed my blog for a while, you’ll know that this item was available last year in Japan, and since it’s reorderable, nearly everyone who wanted to find one could. So I wasn’t that impressed now that it seems Nintendo is cycling through old DLC. I didn’t even bother to check the Nintendo Zone DLC for these next two weeks, but I’m assuming, since we’ve had repeats of the raccoon wall clock and cat tower that it will be something of the like (comment below if you find otherwise).

Like that bad hair style I’ve got going on? Maybe I need a haircut… lol. So anyway, I returned back to my house to find my mailbox absolutely stuffed and Pete was at my doorstep. I spoke to him and he gave me a letter from Nintendo. I opened it up and was very very surprised to find a gift, which was a pile of leaves. This was DLC that was previously unknown as far as how to get it, so this was great news!

Image

You can even stand in it!

Image

Well, now that one more DLC item is ticked off of my “unknown” list, I’m happy! I can’t wait to find out of any more DLC released to come in the future! Hope you all have a wonderful holiday season and I’ll post another blog as soon as more DLC is released!

Weeks 13 & 14: More DLC!! Autumn is here, Jack appears, Candy for all!

Hey all!

Well, as promised… This week’s (or two weeks’ rather) blog posts are very short… I’m sorry, but I’ve been incredibly busy! I just got back from a long weekend in Chicago and am now on a crazy workout regimen for my next upcoming film project I’m working on, but more on that later.

If you take a look on my website (http://animalcrossingnewleaf.moonfruit.com), you will be able to see over this next week a new section titled “Town Tour”. In this section, I will have an interactive map with a tour of my whole town for you to enjoy! Can’t wait!

Image

In other news, I FINALLY came across that alpine kitchen cart I’ve been searching for… It makes a great final addition to my diner! 🙂

Image

Customized of course lol. As for my HHA score, I have been getting super close, dancing around the 140,000 line. So little to do until I push myself to 150,000… ugh…

Image

I found out a funny fact. If you are on a cliff above town residents and they are on the beach, they look up at you…  Wow, this moment… haha

Image

I’ve been enjoying the many new clothing items Gracie has had to offer in my completed storefront. Well… I don’t know about the styles… but it helps me complete my catalog! Lol

Image

I finally got another black rose to grow in my town, which means I’d be harvesting it to make a gold rose. If you want a complete hybrid guide, see my website, but essentially, two red roses next to each other have a small chance of making a black rose, and if you let it wilt and then water it with your golden watering can (bringing it back to life) it turns into a gold rose!

Image

I was super excited when October rolled around because, finally, the new monthly DLC was available, the rice-plant bed! Simply talk to the post-office attendant while connected to the internet…

Image

And it shall be yours!

Image

Who wouldn’t want to lay on a rice-plant?? lol. I was roaming around town and happened to see a familiar face. It’s Jack from previous games’ Halloween festival! I was confused though… I thought he only showed up on Halloween Day?

Image

He explained to me that I should begin collecting candy and unique masks in preparation for the festival and granted me my first costume item, a skeleton hood. Well, it won’t be easy!

Image

I found some more news on unique downloadable DLC. This only works in the US. If you travel to any Nintendo Zone location (or change your router name to “Bestbuy”, instructions on my site) and talk to the post-office attendant, you will not get another rice-plant bed… no…. in fact, in the month of October, you get the previously unknown dated fedora chair! I’m glad I stumbled upon a thread this morning, or I’d have had no idea!

Image

Apparently Nintendo kept this one a little on the quiet side, mentioning it in a Nintendo Direct just a day ago! Well, awesome! That’s another DLC item I can check off the list.

Image

If you live in the UK or elsewhere, you apparently download a high-bun wig or something like that. This item is a normal in-game item, so I urge all US players to share their fedora chairs and spread the love as the UK players did with the shaved-ice lamp a while back. Cheers all! That’s all for now, more to come!

PS: I’m so honored and thrilled with the amount of support I’ve gotten on my new music album. My fans are the best anyone could ask for, and because of you, I will keep pursuing my dream. While my stint on the TV show Grimm is over for now… I can’t wait for the next chapter in my acting career… Thanks for the emails, messages and support. Hopefully I can keep providing expert ACNL advice with everything else going on haha. Keep playing away, readers!   #FF7

Day 16: My Body Is Ready!

The interesting times started yesterday night when I turned on my 3DS to find that there was a new spotpass visitor in my Happy Home Academy model home area on main street. The visitor was none other than Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimes, who assured me that his body was ready!

Image

The cool thing about spotpassing/streetpassing homes into your Happy Home Academy is that you can buy all orderable furniture in the house! Reggie’s home had two items that caught my eye, both being rare DLC that can’t be found elsewhere (without trading). The first is the carp banner and the second is a festival lantern that will be released as a European exclusive next month. How bout that? Both of these items, of course, will be available on my website (http://animalcrossingnewleaf.moonfruit.com)

While you can only order 5 items per house per day, Reggie’s house was quite the experience… I mean… look at his bed…

Image

Anyway, heading back into town, I passed by the river and noticed a large shadow. None other than another Dorado! I keep adding bells to my pocket 🙂

Image

I then decided to design a new shirt, the “Beach Tour” Sweatshirt, which will be available as a QR Code on the website soon!

Image

Yesterday night, I joined up with my brother Brandon for exciting multiplayer adventures. If you would like to request to visit his village, his link is on my website too under “Villagers”

Image

Perhaps in the gayest moment of my life thus far… We rode in the boat to visit his island while being serenaded by Kapp’n……..

Image

After a ton of beetle farming, we left for the night feeling satisfied.

This morning, I was approached by Frank, who told me he had an idea for a new public works project. He recommended I build a wind turbine in my town. I don’t know if this will be next on the list, but it is something I definitely want to do eventually…

Image

Upon exiting my house a bit later, I was greeted (shockingly) by Resetti. Afraid that I mistakenly turned off my 3DS the night before, I listened on to find out that he was just there to thank me for building the Surveillance Center.

Image

I headed up to check out my shop’s items for the day and grabbed my two Nintendo fortunes. Both fortunes contained the same exact lucky ticket, giving me two copies of the Triple Bananas.

Image

Apparently, I’m also getting another villager in my town (like I need any more right now…)

Image

I talked to Victoria, and she informed me that there was a little girl wandering around the town somewhere and that I should find out where she is.

Image

I started the search, swinging by the new Resetti Surveillance Center. Unfortunately, there’s no entering the place unless it’s a specific time of the day and of the week… So for now it’s just a manhole cover lol

Image

Somehow, I woke up this morning and my character had been stricken with a case of “bad luck”. So, every so often he would trip and fall, leading for the task to find the little lost kitten to be tedious.

Image

I was also reminded how much my villagers like my brother better than me…

Image

Anyway, a while later, I finally found the little kitten named Katie. She asked me if I’d escort her to another town, and I agreed.

Image

Luckily, a kind person online willingly let me in to drop her of in their town. So long Katie…

Image

I next decided on my next public works project. Of course, since yesterday I’ve been eager to get started on the Museum 2nd Floor, so it was an obvious choice.

Image

I then headed to Town Square where I found out the Redd was in town! Entering his hut, I found only one of his items to not be a fake (for info on how to tell fakes from real art, visit my website). I ordered the Flowery Painting and am still awaiting its arrival in the mail.

Image

I headed back home to find my mailbox stuffed with things I ordered (both from Reggie’s house and my catalog). Throughout the course of yesterday, I found several online players who helped me get more Japanese DLC so it can be available to all of you. I now have a blossom lantern, kagamimochi, Girl’s Day updo, Emperor’s hat, Hinaningyo and a Sunrise Lamp. I was a busy kid yesterday 🙂 My house is coming together as well.

Image

By and by, I also found a lost mitten. After searching through villagers, I found the owner to be none other than Victoria.

Image

With upwards of 800k bells of profit from last night’s beetle farming expedition with Brandon, I had no problem in paying off the museum 2nd floor fund…

Image

…..and my next house loan….

Image

Talking to Lyle, I found (strangely) that my HHA score had exceeded 20,000 and I would be sent a prize in the mail! Cool!

Image

After that massive runthrough, I can’t await what tomorrow holds!

For Tomorrow:

  • Museum 2nd Floor will be built
  • New public works project (maybe wind turbine?)
  • Where did Dr. Shrunk run off to? Geez…
  • Maybe try and get a full working catalog on the website?
  • Pay off next house loan
  • Meet the new villager!
