Here’s mine: a Switch version.
Here’s my actual dream: a single town hosted on The Cloud ( D: ), run by multiple people together, hop in, hop out. Tight knit group of friends could have so much fun together.
Here’s my weird dream: go out into the wilderness with your fellow villagers to hunt down some cursed monsters, Dark Souls (or Monster Hunter?) style, freeing the souls of the cursed and bringing them back into your cute and happy town. Maybe Little King’s Story style! That’d be a good fit I think? There’s something though about the idea of all my villagers formerly being scary hulking masses that makes me so pleased.
Here’s my realistic dream besides the first one which will obviously happen it was a joke please don’t judge me: towns in different climates. Mountains, jungles, rivers, lakes, beaches, grassy plains, deserts. Go all in on all of it. Make towns more unique than a random layout within the same theme and which fruit is special. In theory it’d allow even more player creativity, too!
I love Animal Crossing, and I think there is so much potential for enhancing the experience in a wide variety of directions. I have accepted that Nintendo probably doesn’t want to step outside the very specific tone and flow they have, but still.
Maybe it’s time for an indie developed Animal Crossing, ala Stardew Valley. I’d take it.
