Animal Crossing Official site update

#1phoenix3934Posted 10/12/2012 4:55:55 PM(edited)
Site updated with a bunch of info.

Visit The Houses of People You Streetpassed:
At the Happy Home Exhibition Street in front of the shopping street, you can visit the model houses of people you street passed. Any piece of furniture you like you can also order through mail order sales!

Take a Relaxing Vacation on the Island of Endless Summer!
Former Mayor Tortimer, after retiring, is now living on this resort island of endless summer. You can take many kinds of tours and purchase gifts to bring home amongst other things. Enjoy a relaxing vacation either by yourself or with everyone you know!

Visit Lots of Towns in Your Dreams!
When you sleep in the Dream House, you visit an actual person’s real town. You can freely walk around their town and visit houses while dreaming!

Make a Best Friend!
Become best friends with your Nintendo 3DS friends! If both you and your friend save one another as best friends, you will be informed of when that person comes online and even if you aren’t currently visiting their town, you can still talk to them by sending messages!

KK’s Famous Tunes Are Now Club Music?!
Every Saturday night you can enjoy listening to KK Slider’s music at “Club 444.” (Note: Club 444 in Japanese is referred to as “Club Shi Shou” or “Club See Show” – it’s a cute pun.) From Sunday to Friday, during D.J. KK Time, you can enjoy KK’s normal sound with a club music twist!

Say Hi to Far Away Friends!
When using your megaphone, you can call one of your animal friends by saying their name inot the 3DS mic. Even if they are far away they can still hear you and respond!

Swim, Dive, and Fully Enjoy the Sea!
If you are wearing a Swim Suit (they called it a Marine Suit in Japanese), you can swim in the ocean and dive beneath the water. Pay close attention to the depths and you can collect items that you can’t via fishing like special shells, sea grapes, and others

Here's a screen of what happens when one of your friends shows up online. The message says "Anna has come online".

Oh, and Shizue, the secretary, has a brother, Kent, that works at the happy home exhibit.

Club 444
- Saturday Nights are Totakeke (KK's) Live.
- Sunday through Friday night is DJ K.K.'s DJ Time.
- The owner of Club 44, Shisho, might teach you some reaction acting during the day before the club is open (art of acting centered on making people react. I don't know if there's an English equivalent term).
- Can be opened via communal work.

Station
- Travel to other villages and invite friends to your village from here.

Police Box
- Police can check whether someone is visiting your village or if any lost articles have come in.
- Can be opened through communal work.
- Picture on the site shows the policeman saying, "Rollan has asked for permission to visit and sell things today."

Docks

- There are a bunch of minigames tours.
- Hammer fun tour: a machine runs around and the objective is to hit it with your hammers a set number of times in the alloted timeframe.
- Diving tour: split up with friends and go diving, gathering things from the ocean.
- Labyrinth tour: everyone works to grab the various things placed around the garden maze within the alloted timeframe.
- Other tours include flower picking competition, borrowed item competition (not sure what this would be).

Happy Home Exhibit
- Can see the profiles of, and talk to (I think just an NPC version of) the people you street passed with here in addition to the other stuff.

Events:

Fishing Tournament (held January through May and October through December)
- Done once a month during the above time frames.

I am curious how the Doll Festival, Children's Day and Tanabata will look in Animal Crossing: Jump Out if these events are also in the North American and European versions considering that they are special days in Japan.

Also if a person's birthday fall on a special day will they be affected?
