Doesn’t Make Sense: Tom Nook Is Controlling Isabelle
Tom Nook has a bad reputation among many players. One popular theory about him is that he’s controlling everyone on the island by holding debt over their heads. A few fans have even considered that he’s been controlling Isabelle this way, and that’s why she doesn’t leave the Resident Services building. She might feel like she has to constantly work to pay off any debt she has to Nook.
It’s unlikely that this is true though since fans will already know that Isabelle is a workaholic. She also seems to get along with Tom Nook, like how they can be seen stretching together in the office. She even seems to enjoy her job, but then again, that could be an act.
Sell Me My Dream Glitch
When a Jock villager asks the player to sell them their dream, the player will tell them to name their price. The price they set will be lower than what they actually pay. They never mention that they’re being generous, so it’s safe to assume that this is actually an item price percentage glitch in the game.
Upgrading From The Tent
Your first residence is a tent. Go inside to get a free lantern from Isabelle. You can upgrade to a house by paying 10,000 bells to Tom Nook.He will ask you to choose a roof color for your house. You have to wait until6AM for your new house to appear.
After this, the Happy Room Academy willopen up in the Nook’s Homes shop. The first time you go into your new house,Isabelle will bring you some Pawprint Wallpaper and will add a light switchto your touch screen.
After your house is built,talk to Tom Nook about paying off your house loan. Once you pay off thefirst house loan , you can unlockthe islandby talking to Tortimer on the dock on your beach.

How Old Are The Villagers Canonically Supposed To Be
I got a lot of flak for putting Villager in “Dependent Child” tier.
People said: “Doesn’t Villager have a job? And a mortgage? S/he can’t be a child.”
And while it is true that children with income and jobs should owe taxes , I thought that the setup for the games was a sort of Peter Pan-like running away from home to never grow up scenario.
But now that Nintendo has released its new image showing that Tom Nook is well versed in taxation, I am wondering.
Anyway, I’m wondering what the CANON is. Is there anything that would be canonic to game lore that would suggest the age of the villager? Is there anything to suggest his/her motivation for going to Animal Crossing’s town? Is there anything spoken about what it represents? From playing the Gamecube version way back when, I’m not thinking that there was anything said about this, but back then, I was a kid, and now, I am a tax accountant and I want to get to the bottom of this.
From reading the plot to the movie, it suggests that protagonist Ai is 11 years old.
Is there anything within the games to contradict this, or to suggest the situation is more complicated?

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Villager Apparently Named After Internet
The 88-year-old woman who made internet fame for playing an absurd amount of Animal Crossing: New Leaf has now been immortalized in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, or so it seems.
As seen in Nintendo World Report’s review of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and first spotted by Reddit, there seems to be an animal named after the Animal Crossing grandma’s in-game name. You can see a comparison shot of the adorable grandma’s New Leaf character and a wolf with the same name in New Horizons.
Paul Hubans took to Twitter last year to share his 87-year-old grandma Audrey’s Animal Crossing: New Leaf activity log, which showed a staggering 3,580 hours played over four years. Hubans later took to to introduce his grandma and allow her to give a tour of her town, setting the internet alight with adoration. That video has since attracted nearly 9.5 million views, with the third most popular comment imploring Nintendo to make a character out of “Mayor Audie” in New Horizons.
My 87-year-old grandma has played Animal Crossing New Leaf on her 3DS every single day for the past 4 years now.Her 3DS finally broke this year, so we got her a new one for Christmas. During a system transfer I checked her activity log: pic.twitter.com/R33KycrW4q

Makes Sense: Isabelle Lives In The Resident Services Building
After she arrived, players could see that Isabelle spent a lot of time in the Resident Services building, and she didn’t have a house on the island. So, where does she actually live? There is a mysterious door by her desk, so the door may lead to another room or an upper level of Resident Services where Isabelle lives.
With all her TV habits and the news she shares about the socks she finds behind her washing machine, it’s clear that she has to spend her free time somewhere. If she doesn’t have a house on the island, and players can catch her sleeping in her office chair while working all hours of the day, it doesn’t seem too unbelievable that Isabelle might go to her home behind that door when the player is away.

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons
In the Animal Crossing: New Horizons storyline, the player’s island is overseen by Nook Inc. and Resident Services staff rather than having a traditional civic government. Therefore the position of mayor does not exist, and Tom Nook presides over most island ceremonies. However, the first player to move onto the island is named Resident Representative, which in practice has very similar powers to the mayor in New Leaf, including the ability to initiate and place infrastructure such as stores, bridges, and inclines. While there is no direct equivalent to ordinances inNew Horizons, the Resident Representative can also now control the number and location of villager housing plots.
Doesn’t Make Sense: Isabelle Forgets To Do Her Job
This theory has been connected to the drinking theory and the idea that Isabelle works too much. Some players have wondered if Isabelle ever actually talks to anyone on the island for complaints or island ratings since it seems that she never leaves Resident Services. Maybe she’s taking so many naps in her office that she forgets to talk to villagers, or maybe it slips her mind because of that drink on her desk.
This is hardly the case, as villagers can comment on how they like talking to Isabelle, and how they think she’s doing a good job. She may be taking a power nap every once in a while, but she makes sure to get the job done.

Fun For All Ages Even Adults
I have been an Animal Crossing fan since I was 15. The first one I ever played was Animal Crossing: Wild World for the original Nintendo DS. I played that game every day over Christmas break when it first came out. And I enjoyed it for about 6 years after that. After my husband bought me a Nintendo 3DS for my birthday, my gaming tasted had changed. So I gave my old DS and Animal Crossing to my little brother. So even after all these years, it’s still being enjoyed.But when New Leaf was released, I just felt like I had to give it a try. Even though I was sure I was too old to get any kind of enjoyment out of it. I was wrong, in thinking that I was too old for it. Even though it is a little slow paced for me I still enjoyed it. It’s fun to play after work to wind down after a hard day. The tasks are simple but not so easy that it doesn’t make you do a little bit of work. The mini games are a blast, and I still have a lot more to unlock. I absolutely love it. I think I will be holding on to this one, even longer than I held on to the last one. But my favorite part? It’s fun for a 22 year old woman, like me, but I can also let my 5 year old niece play when she comes to visit. It’s fun for everyone! Even my husband has been wanting to play it! 🙂

Worse: You’re Not The Mayor
This isn’t so much a;gameplay;problem;as an emotional one. In;New Leaf, the title of mayor is bestowed upon players as soon as they arrive in their new town, and all improvements made to the town are accordingly credited to the player.
In;New Horizons, the player is still the one doing all the work, and indeed contributing most of the Bells to new features like bridges and ramps. Only now, you’re just the Resident Representative and everyone acts like they’ve worked together to make any changes. It may be petty, but if the player puts in the effort, surely they deserve the credit.
Tortimer Found Dead In Miami
The latest Animal Crossing: New Horizons Nintendo Direct delivered almost 30 minutes of exciting information, making it the biggest Direct for the game yet. It makes sense; the highly anticipated game is going to be released in less than a month, so the thrill is in the air.
Except it isnt regarding one thing a rather discreet item that wasnt commented on in the Direct. At approximately 22:31 in the Feb. 20 Direct, you can see a tombstone at the far right of the screen, tucked under a tree.
Even with the deluge of information being thrown at them, many viewers were quick to spot it. A tombstone in an Animal Crossing town? Its pretty unheard of. Its clearly meant to be a graveyard, with the white flowers surrounding the grave and what seems to be a small plant on the tombstone itself.
Regardless, chaos has ensued in parts of the Animal Crossing community as players are left wondering: Is the beloved elderly Mayor Tortimer dead?

Animal Crossing: New Leaf Review
Return of the thieving raccoon
Version Reviewed: European
Its likely that before the archaic and newly-retired Mayor Tortimer sailed off into the sunset he turned to the fresh-faced Mayor-to-be beside him and whispered, Remember, youre only a Mayor, not a King, and this is a democracy, not a dictatorship. And with that, he turned, winked, donned his Hawaiian shirt and embarked for the nearby tropical island. This is the true motto of Animal Crossing: New Leaf.
If you were hoping, like our malevolent Mayor Jon to enforce crazy and slightly questionable laws into your town, build a 50 foot statute of yourself and initiate a full-on reign of terror to send your animal neighbours shaking in their boots, or even simply take complete personal control of the festival scheduling duties, then you may be disappointed to know that sadly there is a limit to your mayoral prowess. However, this slight set-back is only a minor blemish on an otherwise perfectly peaceful gaming experience.
New Leaf is unlike any of the other Animal Crossing games you may have played, finally putting an end to the whines of previous critics who complained that Animal Crossing has no point and there isnt much to physically do. By putting you in Tortimers tiny tortoise-shaped shoes and providing you with the daunting task of revitalizing and urbanising the town, Nintendo finally provides the player with a reason to keep coming back, other than to rid the land of all of those blasted weeds.

Does Rain Last All Day Animal Crossing
First off, just know that weather in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is pretty random. It can rain on any day and will last for a few hours, or possibly all day long. As in previous games, the rain brings out rare fish, such as coelacanths, one of the most valuable fish in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
Random: Isabelle Still Seems Upset At Negligent Animal Crossing: New Leaf Mayors
Some 3DS owners are still diligently playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf – visiting their towns to exchange pleasantries with the locals, dig up some weeds and ensure that everything is tickety-boo. Those people will be held in high regard by the ever-lovable Isabelle.
Then there are the rest of us, your humble writer included. Perhaps the intention had been to fulfil Mayoral duties long term but it went wrong – time passed, life happened. As enough time passes the fear or repercussions can lead some to avoid their towns entirely; at best there’ll be a lot of weeds and disgruntled – in some cases – heartbroken residents. At worst the town will have descended into a post-apocalyptic state where locals are having to scavenge and fight over the last apple. Let’s face it, no-one wants to load the game up after a couple of years to see that.
It seems that Isabelle is happy to pile on the guilt for errant Mayors in Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer; our guess is she’s in this new town as she had to flee her old home when its society collapsed. This is brilliantly captured by Kenzie’s blog, below.
