With Animal Crossing, you can venture into a virtual village inhabited by colourful animals, where you can while away the time doing whatever you feel like. You can decorate your house, go fishing, search for fossils, tend to your garden, become a top fashion designer – the choice is yours. There are no rules, no levels to complete and no scores to beat – you simply play however and whenever you want. And with your new role as mayor, you now have free reign over how your own entire town looks, perhaps erecting a street light here, a bench there or a windmill over there - whatever it takes to make your town a nicer place to live.
