Life after Swapnote ⊟
With Swapnote shuttered and the chances for a Super Smash Bros. playable role looking slim, the 3DS app’s mascot has to look for a new home. There’s a new and very cute Tumblr following Nikki’s Adventures in Animal Crossing as the ex-postmistress tries to find her way.
It looks like she’s landed on her feet. With few funds to her name, Nikki lived in a tent for a while, but at least now she has a house (and a lot of debt to go along with it). Still, there are moments when Nikki’s reminded of what she’s lost — not just her home or countless penpals, but her purpose. It could be a long time before she really recovers from that.
What a lovely cross-section of an Animal Crossing life, by Adam Works. Reminds me of Camille Young’s amazing sculpture for Fangamer X Attract Mode.
We all knew what we were getting into when we picked up Animal Crossing: New Leaf, that despite our neighbors’ efforts to make best friends out of us, we weren’t permanent additions to the town. Make us mayor if you want, but it won’t keep us here — we’ll eventually wander off to the next distraction, the next video game world, leaving Isabelle to keep the town running.
Even if we ever decide to load up New Leaf again, see how everyone is holding up, it will never be like it once was. You can’t go home again.
Thanks to @nameoftheyear for sending over the link.

Who knew I needed so many Animal Crossing items in my house? NCSX, apparently, among others.
Animal Crossing head cases ⊟
Carry your coins, or your ID/train pass, in the head of your favorite Animal Crossing: New Leaf characters! J-List has a set of coin cases bearing the faces of Isabelle, Tom Nook, Reese, and KK Slider, as well as pass cases shaped like their heads (Isabelle, Nook, Reese, KK). If you want your train pass or other regularly accessed card to be softer and cuter, you’re all set.
Meanwhile in Animal Crossing: New Leaf… ⊟

Cute Animal Crossing items to squee about ⊟
NCSX is taking preorders for two great collections of Animal Crossing: New Leaf items that I wish were in my house. The “Girls Goods” set has a Lisa key cover (omg), a mirror pendant, an Able Sisters notepad, a Re-tail notepad, an Isabelle “accessory stand,” stickers in a bottle, and Lisa/Isabelle stamps (!!) The whole set ships in January for $26.90. The Ouchi to Okagu Collection is a set of tiny houses with wallpaper and floor patterns!, along with furniture and figurines for $28.90. Sigh.
Animal Crossing event calendar ⊟
Here’s a reminder to get back to Animal Crossing: New Leaf from Nintendo: a neat printable calendar for the new school year. It’s an easy way to keep track of upcoming events, with a bonus monthly tip.
Plus you can, like, look at it and figure out what day it is. Calendars are useful like that.
Dark Souls: New Leaf by Ian McConville ⊟
“Animal Crossing serenity meets Dark Souls brutality”
This scene is already awesome with just these images, but you should definitely check out this Sketchfab page that lets you rotate and zoom into the room. Really awesome work from the lead artist of Spiral Knights!
Now I want an Animal Crossing clone where I can decorate a haunted house.
When I get there, no matter how tired I’ll be… ⊟
I love this comic by Angimoto because it’s so much in the spirit of the game, that sense of not needing to rush the experience, just taking everything in and enjoying what a new setting has to offer.
