DJ K.K. Slider In The House With More About Animal Crossing 3DS

By Spencer . October 5, 2012 . 6:03pm

Nintendo is making a new Animal Crossing game for Nintendo 3DS and in this game you play as the mayor. A yellow dog named Shizune helps you run the town. You can place decorative items like topiaries and Shizune will walk with you to place the item. However, the item won’t appear right away. Lloid (Haniwa-kun in the Japanese version) will collect money from other townsanimals for the topiary. When you’re rolling in bells this won’t be an issue since you can use your own money to pay for decorative items. One other neat feature is the megaphone which lets you grab other animal’s attention when you shout their name in the 3DS’ microphone.


The museum is customizable. Players can create their own exhibits so you can show off your collection of Gyroids or make a Nintendo themed exhibition. Players can also visit Club 444 which has comedian named Shisho and K.K. who mixes music with turntables on the weekends. You can choose your character’s reaction by picking a facial expression.


Animal Crossing 3DS also has a fruit collecting multiplayer mini-game. You have to pick up a specific kind of fruit like apples, cherries, or mangos. There’s another mini-game where you use toy mallets to hit an electric car. Animal Crossing for Nintendo 3DS comes out on November 8 in Japan.

      No no, those are Kamina sunglasses. Ka-mi-na. NOW your life is complete.

      • Detrimont

        no, i’m sticking with Dirk Strider, they are black after all, not red

        • Jinka Fumako

           Correction, those are Squirtle Squad sunglasses

          • hawk222

            I’m sorry, sir, I have overlooked the original…

  • kupomogli

    There’s no NES games to collect since Nintendo can’t make money from them if there is so what’s the point.  Shake trees for 10 minutes, check the dump, and then go back and forth talking to the villagers and then check back tomorrow to do the same thing over again.

    Animal Crossing is a terrible series of games that everyone loves for some reason.  Just my opinion though.

    • riceisnice

       Have you ever shaked a tree before? The best fun you can have ever.

    • Doctor Nebula

      Indeed just your opinion…
      I find playing with friends makes it more fun though.

    • lordroto

      with such a narrow minded view of the game it’s no surprise you can’t understand why people like it. It’s funny to think the game’s only worth was an NES collection. As the series has continued it has evolved and none more so then this new entry. There’s so much to customize create and collect. Having your own little world to make your own and to share with others. Don’t see why that would be such a bad thing. You just see the game with a goal in mind, but just like real life, in Animal Crossing you make it what you want it to be. And that freedom of choice, and the relaxing nature that can be enjoyed by anybody, not always found in gim, edgy, and violent games that flood the market.

      Just my opinion though.

    • PreyMantis

      I can tell that you haven’t played much of Animal Crossing since that’s all you know/do in the game. Pity…

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        Well, at least i enjoy the game a lot here.^_^ Which even makes me hope that Konami will release Magician Quest with also had AC type of gameplay.^_^

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Indeed it is just your opinion there, But i don’t think it is nice to call this game terrible lol as many player enjoy this game.

      This game is of course not the type of game which provide player with some action or intriguing story. This game main power is more or less like Tamagotchi series,Magician Quest, Nintendogs or even Harvest Moon series. which does not provide you any big goals but allowing you to have fun from all the other aspects from planting to even just talking with others.

      And what is about no NES game to collect? Many of the rarest and most expensives games comes from NES collection there.

  • Calling it now, Shisho will become a meme.

    • Krisi92

      I don’t think so, he was in every Animal Crossing yet except for the first one, his name is Dr. Shrunk in English.

  • AuraGuyChris

    Will Shizune be carrying my little pig around?

    Oh wait, wrong Shizune.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    DJ Hipster K.K

  • Shadowman

    Aww snap DJ K.9 droping some funk fresh beats up in that club!

  • Beta Tabe

    Looks awesome! Although, I am worried about the 1 save file thing. but maybe, just
    maybe, it’s like one save file as in one town but several people can
    live in one save? It technically was like that in every AC.

    If anyone can clear this up for me I would appreciate it ;.;

    • puchinri

       Well, it’s always one save file basically, isn’t it? I haven’t played WW though, so I don’t know how it’s supposed to work on portables, but I also don’t think having one save would conflict with any of the mayor stuff or anything.

  • PreyMantis

    It sucks whenever I miss a Sunday night because I miss a performance of KK. Now that Club 444 is on, it would be awesome every night! :D

    Oh, and other bits of news:
    KK’s alter ego will also play some NES/Famicom tunes.
    The club will also have Shisho as the standup comedian.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Can’t wait for Ninja Gaiden tunes lol.^_^

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    This and Fantasy Life is going to be my best way to escape from stress lol.^_^

    And, i can imagine some player is going to put “Unko” as picture for the cloth lol.^_^

  • Tom_Phoenix

    “You can choose your character’s reaction by picking a facial expression.”

    I can already foresee some funny crossover videos, using footage from Ace Attorney 5 and Animal Crossing 3DS, being made.

  • KHSoraKeyBlade

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.

    This game will be fantastic and the best in the series by far. 

  • Settsuo

    This is by far my most anticipated title of 2013. Looks amazing, lots of new fresh additions, a more social environment, and KK finally has his own spot :)

  • Izzy Miyake

    This needs to come out NOW.

    Like right NOW!

    I think the awesomeness of this title is overriding my thought process. This might just overtake Pokemon when it comes out ><

  • Krisi92

    Shisho is called Dr. Shrunk in English. He was in all of the Animal Crossing games except for the first one…

  • DJ K.K. so cool!  He totally fits as a Dj.  KK was one of my favorite parts of that game.  When you meet him the first time…man, that game has a special place for me.

  • Xmas Lopez

    Release this with an Animal Crossing 3DS XL and I will buy it and love it and waste my life on it.
