  1. The listing for in-game purchases is back? NO! I would assume this would just be for the option to sign-up for NSO in-game. Though, I would't be surprised if they announced a DLC expansion pass tomorrow, since Nintendo has been on a DLC kick with the Switch and their big games. Not sure how I feel about paid DLC in AC. I don't even want to start thinking about paid DLC, until I've played the game for about a year or two and had a chance to pretty much do/experience everything. If they want to add things to the game, they should do free updates over time, like with Splatoon 2. ...Or just do what they did with New Leaf's Welcome amiibo update and drop a massive free update to get people back in, after most people have stopped playing.
  2. Added the info about the Direct to the OP and will update it with the recording for those that couldn't watch live, once it's available. I'm really looking forward to this! Here's what I want to hear about the most... The main buildings/shops (Nook's Shop, Museum, The Roost, etc): Do we have to build these or will they be on a separate mini island? The online: What new social features will be added? Are the mini-games from NL back? Customization: Did they go all out with the customization features? What new Customization features are there for your house/island/character? Can we add custom patterns to pants or even shoes now? The NSO app: We already know it will be used for NH, but will be used just for voice chat or something more like Spalatoon 2 and Super Smash Bros Ultimate? Sharing patterns: How will this work, since the Switch can't scan QR codes like the 3DS. Will sharing patterns be handled via the NOS app? Harvey's role: In the main artwork for the game (the extended box art pic) we can see Harvey's cabin has a camera icon on it. He must have something to do with photography... Will there be photo challenges? Will he let us turn screenshots into pics the can be displayed in our house (placed on tables/hung on walls)? Isabelle's role: On the box art we can she's wearing the same style of shirt as Tom Nook/Timmy and Tommy... Does she work for them now? Or will she have a similar role as in NL and help out the player character? The Mayor: Will your island have a Mayor? Are YOU the mayor again? Younger versions of special characters: In various artwork/merch we've seen younger versions of characters like Chip and Joan. Are all the special characters being replaced with their younger counterparts? The journal from GameCube version: Will it return? This would be a great thing to have, especially when visiting friends islands online/via local-wireless. Target is offering an AC:NH journal as a pre-order bonus, so it makes me wonder Sending mail to friends: Can we send letters/presents to our friend's from our own towns? It kind of defeats the point when you have to go to a friend's town to do this. Swimming/Boating: Is the wetsuit back form NL, so can go swimming and diving for sea creatures? Can we craft our own boats so we can go out fishing on the ocean? On the back of the Special Edition AC:NH Switch it has a pic of a sailboat, so it makes me wonder. amiibo: We know the game will support them, but how will they work? Will they work the same way as in NL's Welcome amiibo update or do something more? Which non-AC amiibo will be supported? Will there be a be new line of AC:NH amiibo (figures and/or cards)? Save data back-ups (NSO members): How exotically will this work, since it's not using the Switch's cloud save feature? What kind of limits/restrictions will there be (if any)? *MOST IMPORTANT* Will my boy DJ K.K. return? They brought him back as a special character/item in Pocket Camp, so... -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  3. Chibi-Robo! Just look at him! He's simplistically adorable. ^_^ I'd love to have my own Chibi-Robo running around and cleaning my house. Nintendo should work with iRobot (the makers of the Roomba) to release a Chibi-Robo version. None of the previous games released lived up to the original on GameCube, especially that weird platformer spin-off on 3DS. Photo Finder was kind of neat, but it felt very limited and a bit repetitive with the the same 4 small areas to explore over and ever. I know it was a 3DS eShop game, but still. There was that 2nd game on DS (a direct sequel to the GameCube game) that was released only in JPN, which was the most like the original, but that too seemed to be a bit limited from gameplay I've seen.
  4. First my internet decides to f-up, right when the tourney starts. Then Bowser decides to trip over "The Cord" (Didn't you learn anything from Iwata and Reggie?) and most of us get DC'd. Then I keep getting slammed with items. Despite all that, I still had fun. Good races! Rank-Roo, Raggy!
  5. For anyone willing to spend $5 more... I’m so tempted to do this, but it’s easier for me to just go to GS, as it’s just down the road from my house.
  6. New NES/SNES coming 2/19... *SIGH* Can we plz have Eathbound and Earthbound Beginnings already? Also, I'd love to see the Sim City added to the SNES games.
  7. PKMN Home app now available on Switch (mobile app doesn't seem to be available yet)... Anyone signing up for a premium plan? If so how long? I might use the free plan once the app is compatible with PKMN GO. BTW, I just think it's stupidthat there's a lot of stuff you can't do in the Switch app, which you have to use the mobile app to do. EX: The GTS
  8. List updated with more standout games, including some 3DS games. Plus, added when big publisher sales end.
  9. If you log-in to your Nintendo Account you can buy games right from Nintendo’s site. *Though, I’m not sure if your account has to be linked to a Switch first. If you log-in, go to a game’s page on Nintendo’s site, and see the option to buy digitally, you should be good. When you get your Switch and link your account, all your purchased games should be in your downloads on your eShop account. Hell, they might even start auto-download once you link your account.

  11. Nice to see that Nintendo/TPC's ninja's caught the leaker, though I can't get over the fact that the outlet is called FNintendo. ...FNINTENDO!!!
  12. I assume this will mainly be for sharing patterns, as there’s no way to scan QR codes like on the 3DS.
  13. Pre-loads are now available for the digital version, plus the NA site (link in the OP) has updated with a blurb, which reconfirms the recent news about save data transfers and cloud saves... Also... 😍
