Matt Kodner answers your questions about Animal Crossing: New Leaf

By Matt Gerardi • June 7, 2013

Earlier this week we asked for your questions regarding Nintendo’s latest living-in-a-town-with-animals simulator, Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Now, resident Animal Crossing expert, and New Leaf reviewer, Matt Kodner has some—emphasis on some—answers for you. John and Matt cover such topics as, “As mayor, what kind of politically charged revenge can you enact against Tom Nook?” and “Why is this game compelling?” Thanks for your questions!

To answer that one question that goes unanswered in the video, the “Dream Suite” feature sounds like an alternative to visiting other players’ towns. During a normal visit, you would be able to run through a friend’s town and do whatever you’d like alongside them. During a visit through the Dream Suite, a special building you can construct in your town, you’ll enter a facsimile of your friend’s town. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like to it—cut down all the trees for example—but since it’s some sort of dream-town, none of those potentially mean actions will affect your friend’s game.

  1. According to the wiki, Olivia and Tangy both return this time around, but I haven’t played yet so I can’t confirm firsthand.

  2. Yay! First question!

  3. Chalkdust says:

    This round of questions was very compelling!

    Follow-up question:  Is that John Teti on your t-shirt??

     Awesome! My question made it! I wasn’t mentioned by name, but mostly I’m just happy you guys enjoyed my righteous vendetta against Tom Nook. Seriously, thanks!

       I couldn’t figure out a way to mention it and not sound snarky. I assure you no snark was intended.

    • DrFlimFlam says:

      It was a hilarious question and I laughed out loud when it was read.

    • Matt Kodner says:

      That was probably my favorite question. Tom Nook is right up there with my high school math teacher on my I’ll See You In Hell list. 

  6. DrFlimFlam says:

    Thank you for totally understanding my question. This is good information.

    And you’re missing out with Olivia and Tangy. Olivia is a snooty upper-cruster with a love of ladybugs and Tangy is the most effervescent town member in the entire game and she is wonderful.

      No, no, the best townie is Mitzi! Tensions ran high in the Minotaur household the day she left me to move into my sister’s town! (…I guess we all like cat townies?)

    I love the idea that Mr. Resetti could retire to a life of yelling at trespassers instead of resetters.
