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


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.
