Animal Crossing: City Folk’s Shoe Shine Boy, Kicks, Is A Big Man In New Leaf

By Ishaan . May 13, 2013 . 8:30am

Nintendo have shared profiles for three more characters from Animal Crossing: New Leaf on their 3DS Facebook page, and some of these characters have been promoted to a higher rung on the Economic ladder since their last appearances. Check them out below:


Tom Nook’s nephews, Tommy and Timmy are back in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. They now run general store on their own instead of Tom Nook!


If you’re a hat person, you’ll definitely want to meet Labelle. She runs the hats and accessories department of the Able Sisters’ Tailor shop in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Talk to her if you need the perfect accessory to complete your outfit.


Kicks has a new job in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. He was the shoeshine boy in Animal Crossing: City Folk but now he owns his own shop selling socks and shoes.


Animal Crossing: New Leaf will be released on June 9th in North America and June 14th in Europe.

    Ah! He’s seems like a cool guy!
    He’ll probably make fun of my shoes….

    Poor Labelle. Sounds like Gracie fired her.

      I thought maybe she reconnected with her sisters? Then again, we never did complete all that stuff with her and the other two sisters so maybe you’re right.

      • Let’s be positive and hope she’s taken a leave of absence to make up with Mabel and Sable. :D

        • puchinri

          Haha, yeah, that works for me.

          Do we know for sure if Gracie’s store is even open though in this one? I actually haven’t tried checking so far.

            I hear she sells pants now.

          • puchinri

            Ahhh~. That’s interesting.
            (Also, I decided to hunt down some info on Gracie as far as NL, and was reminded that Gracie is a guy in Japan. I don’t know why I’m so stuck on the fact though.)

    June 9th is sooooo far away :(

  • puchinri

    Seeing where Labelle is now makes me want to go back and finish her and the Able Sisters’ storyline in CF. Glad to see them all working together~.

    Kicks is COOL!!
