It looks like Tom Nook will be the rich tanuki in New Horizons.
Animal Crossing: The New Horizons is the next entry in the beloved series and we learned a lot because it was revealed for Nintendo Switch back to 201
You start with two neighbors in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Nogami said that when you first arrived on the island by Nook Inc. Deserted Island Getaway Package, you get two or more random Islanders who are also selected to participate in the package as well. Nogami said that because they invested in this package they have the right to stay on the island as you do. However, Kyogoku said before they chose a place for their home, they will see you to see if it's okay. If you do not like where they live you can tell them that you do not want to build in that particular place and move their home location anywhere you see fit.
This is a new kind of relationship.
" Returning to the New Leaf when a player moves to a new village, there are former villagers there. They are kind of teaching you how things work in the village, so you're kind of a newbie in a village, "Kyogoku said." At [New Horizons] because you're moving to a deserted island with other animals , the relationship you have with these two first two animals is similar to you in the same starting point. It is a new type of relationship.
"I know that many Crossing Animals fans have their favorite and not favorite animals. One thing I can definitely be in the development team, there are so many people saying & # 39; Hey, I did not really care about these two animals at first, but in fact, now that I've moved to this island with them, they're really starting to grow up for me. & # 39; and begin to have a new kind of conversation, contact with them. "
The feeling of development and construction of a town should be familiar
In past the title of Animal Crossing, your character is joining a stable town with at least Some basic buildings are in place. Since New Horizons is set on a deserted island, you will need to build it from the beginning. But after the start of things, Kyogoku said that the way you build your town in the New Horizons should not be wonderful for returning fans.
"We assure you that there are new elements – [like] building the island, building something from the beginning," says Kyogoku. "When the island is there, how it's built is something that may seem familiar to existing fans. We feel we've given a new experience but have not lost what's familiar with the Animal Franchise."  Nogami said that the elements and town buildings that we opened would not be like the New Leaf, however.
You can invite animals to your island in some ways at Crossing Animals: New Horizons
In the New Leaf, we are able to recruit and invite villagers to be part of our country. Kyogoku said there would be a system of opportunity to invite animals to the island, but not necessarily looking for one of Animal Crossing animals.
When you first move to the Island you will have two or more animals, Timmy and Tommy, and Tom Nook. The other Islanders who come to you can not be urgent on the island, but they can leave it if they want it, Nogami said.
Tom Nook has a plan for all the bells he collects
Kyogoku and Nogami reassured IGN that Tom Nook is really a good person; he does not charge interest on loans and is patiently waiting to be paid back, even if it needs it forever. At this time, Kyogoku confirmed that the animals that joined you in your quest are also in debt to Tom Nook. They bought at Nook Inc. Deserted Island Getaway Package, after all.
But what does Tom Nook do with all the bells he has earned?
According to Kyogoku, Tom Nook is reinvesting back to the community.
"Tom Nook, this time, he has this place called Resident Services. He has worked tirelessly 24 hours to make sure all islanders are happy and live a good life, "says Kyogoku. "Every time Tom receives the debts paid from residents and players, I think because of these services to residents as time goes on, I think he pays the money to the Service Resident for residents. "
You do not have to worry about having upgrades to all the houses of the Islanders. They'll pay Tom Nook again at their own pace, regardless of how fast you are – or make Nook Miles a new currency in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Nook Inc. now offers something called Nook Miles, a new reward program in its own currency that Kyogoku and Nogami's hopes encourage old and new players to try out different work on the New Horizons. Players can complete various activities such as fishing or crafting the valuable achievements that Nook Miles has earned for them. Then, they can replace Nook Miles for special items, such as a Nook Inc. uniforms, DIY recipes, and other services.
"The bubbles are used to, of course, repay the loan, but I think the previous titles had a kind of value associated with bells," Kyogoku says. "For example, a very rare beetle can be sold [for a high price] and many players focus on that and then maybe, on the other hand, ignore a typical butterfly after it is delivered to the museum. Its value has changed Miles. "
There is no direct connection between New Horizons and Pocket Camp
" We want to make sure to separate the gameplay because we feel they are two different types of games, "says Kyogoku. Even though they do not have any kind of direct connection, there are already collaboration items planned for two games.
You can choose your skin tone in New Horizon
Kyogoku confirmed that skin color is completely renewable in New Horizon, and, of course, hair and facial features are also changing. However, this time around there is not a difference between the masculine or feminine features. There will also be new hair and facial features to choose from.
