Animal Crossing: Jump Out Overview

Here’s part of the translation of the footage:
“Begin your new life in Tobidase Doubutsu no Mori 3DS. Take your time and play at your own place, living a heartwarming life with the animals in your town. Tobidase Doubutsu no Mori.

Play Your Way

You’ve finally arrived at a new town by train. Due to a slight misunderstanding, you wind up becoming town mayor! Living here you take care of flowers, catch bugs, and catch fish while interacting with the animals of the village; you play your way.

The town progresses in real time; in the morning the animals start waking up with you. At night you can see the stars starting to come out. Depending on the season, the look and feel of your town changes as well. You can also enjoy special events during the different seasons.”

The NES classic from Capcom, Ghosts ‘N Goblins is scheduled to release next week, on 10/25/12 for the 3DS eShop. The game is notoriously famous for it’s high degree of difficultly, even with the Stage Select code. I also personally enjoyed the music from the game and it’s a great choice for spooky Halloween music. No info on the price for this version, but here’s the full announcement from Capcom:

“Just in time for Halloween, the NES version of Ghosts ‘n Goblins arrives on the 3DS eShop to torment poor Arthur all over again. This ’80s classic is rated E for ‘Mild Fantasy Violence,’ though IMO the ESRB should consider adding descriptors for ‘Soul Crushing Difficulty‘ and ‘Not Responsible When You Snap the 3DS In Half.’

This is actually the second Capcom game I played, ever (the first being 1942). First saw it in a fine Kentucky lodge arcade, then realized a friend had the same game on NES months later. Designed as a quarter muncher, GnG really tests your skill and demands precise play from beginning to end. However, I always felt the game did so much with so little, creating an oppressive, unwelcome mood that made you feel like the journey was truly impossible. But with enough perseverance (or like $50 in quarters) you could win the day.
