Tom Nook seems to be the wealthy Tanuki in New Horizons.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the next entry in the popular series, and we've learned a lot since it was unveiled in 201
You will start with about two neighbors in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
Nogami said that on your first arrival on the island, you will be arriving via the Deserted Island Getaway package from Nook Inc. with about two other random Islanders who have also opted to join the package. Nogami said because they have invested in this package, they have the same right to stay on the island as you. However, Kyogoku said before they choose a place for their home, they will ask you if it's okay. If you do not want to know where to settle, you can tell them that you do not want to build in that particular location, and move the location of your home to a location that you think is right.
It's a very new kind of relationship.
" Back in New Leaf, when a player moves to a new village, there were already villagers who were there. They taught you how things work in the village, so you were a novice in a village, "Kyogoku said. "With [New Horizons] you are in a similar relationship to other animals as you are with these two first animals, it's a very new kind of relationship."
"I know that many Animal Crossing fans have their favorites and not such beloved pets One thing I can definitely do is that there are a lot of people in the development team who say, "Hey, these two animals did not bother me at first, but Now that I've moved to this island with them, they are really starting to grow with me. & # 39; and starting to have a new kind of relationship with them. "
The feeling of progress and construction A City Should Be Familiar
In earlier Animal Crossing titles, your character was an established city in which at least some basic buildings were already in place. Because New Horizons is on a deserted island, you have to rebuild it from scratch. After tackling things, Kyogoku said that the way you develop your city in New Horizons should not be too surprising for returning fans.
"We made sure there were new elements – [like] Building an island, building something from scratch," said Kyogoku. "Once this island is there, it will probably be familiar to existing fans As it develops, we feel that we have been able to offer a new experience, but not lose what is familiar with the Animal Crossing franchise. "
Nogami said the elements and buildings of the city that we have unlocking, would not be in the same order as New Leaf's.
In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you can in some ways invite animals to your island.
In New Leaf, we were able to recruit and invite villagers to become part of our island Kyogoku said there would be a system that would allow animals to be brought to the island, but not necessarily one of Animal Crossing's many animals.
When you first visit pull the island, you will be with two or more animals together, Timmy and Tommy and Tom Nook. The other islanders who arrive with you can not be driven off the island, but they can go if they wish, said Nogami.
Tom Nook has a plan for all the bells he collects.
Kyogoku and Nogami assured IGN that Tom Nook is a really good guy; He does not charge interest on loans and patiently waits to be repaid, even if it takes forever. This time, Kyogoku confirmed that the animals that accompany you on your adventure are also thanks to Tom Nook. Finally, they bought the Deserted Island Getaway package from Nook Inc.
But what does Tom Nook do with all the bells he deserves?
According to Kyogoku, Tom Nook invests back in the community.
"Tom Nook, this time he has this place called Resident Services, working tirelessly 24 hours to make sure all the islanders are happy and have a good life," Kyogoku said. "Whenever Tom gets this debt back from the residents and the players, I believe he is investing that money in the residents' resident service because these resident services are being upgraded over time."
They do not do it You have to worry about having to upgrade all the houses of the islanders. You pay back Tom Nook at your own pace, no matter how fast you do it – or you could live in a tent forever.
Nook Miles is a new currency in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Nook Inc. now offers Nook Miles, a new rewards program with its own currency Kyogoku and Nogami hope to encourage both old and new players to engage in various activities in New Horizons to try. Players can perform various tasks, such as fishing or crafting, to essentially achieve success in collecting Nook Miles. Then they can exchange Nook Miles for something special, such as a Nook Inc. uniform, DIY recipes, and other services.
"Bells are, of course, accustomed to repaying the loan, but I believe that in earlier titles such were some sort of value associated with bells," Kyogoku said. "For example, a very rare beetle could be sold [for a high price] and many players would focus on it and then perhaps ignore a very common butterfly after being donated to the museum. The value of that has changed with Miles.
There is no direct connection between New Horizons and Pocket Camp.
"We want to make sure that the gameplay is disconnected, as we believe they are two different types of games," Kyogoku said, and although there is no direct connectivity, collaboration elements are already planned for both games.
You can choose your skin tone in New Horizon.
Kyogoku has confirmed that the skin color in New Horizon can be changed freely and, of course, hair and facial features are changeable, but this time there is no distinction between male and female features Add new hair and facial features that you can choose from.
