Used copy of Animal Crossing for GameCube. Tested for functionality. Case and special memory card included.
Animal Crossing is a social simulation game, dubbed a “communication game” by Nintendo. It is open-ended, and the player’s character can live a separate life with very little set plot or mandatory tasks. Players assume the role of a new resident to the town. The gender and looks of the character depend on answers given to a cat named Rover, whom the player meets on the train the character takes to the town. There are also tasks that players can complete and goals they can achieve. The game is played in real-time, observing days, weeks, months and years using the GameCube’s internal clock. Many real-life events and holidays span the year, including Independence Day, Halloween, the Harvest Festival (Thanksgiving), and Toy Day (Christmas). Other activities, such as fishing tournaments and early-morning fitness classes, occur on a regular schedule. When players stop playing, they can talk to their Gyroid, a creature next to their house, to save their progress. If the player turns off the game or resets the GameCube without saving first, a mole named Mr. Resetti appears in front of the player’s house the next time they play to scold them for resetting; what they achieved during the previous unsaved game is lost, but everything else is kept.
