Welcome, New Leaf fans. Since July, DieHard GameFAN has been compiling a list of things that you can do in each in order to make sure you have all your Abel Sisters in a row. Since it’s a new month, we’ve got a new list! Here are some of the things you can do in October.
First, some general tips:
The official Animal Crossing: New Leaf website has only a few events listed for North America this month: the 12th is this year’s first fishing tourney; the 14th is Explorer’s Day (visit Isabelle to receive a Sailboat Model), and the 31st is Halloween (go to the Nooklings’ and Ables’ shops for holiday-specific items). Don’t forget, of course, that some of your residents may have October birthdays. Go to their house on that day to celebrate with them. If you bring a present, you might just get one in return in your mailbox the next day. Also be sure to check with Pelly for any special presents that you can download via Wifi; this month, you’ll be able to get a Rice-plant Bed from Nintendo.
There’s plenty to look for in the great outdoors. On the bug catching front, you have several new bugs to look for.
If you haven’t caught the bell cricket, giant petaltail, house centipede, red dragonfly, spider, stinkbug, or tiger beetle yet, this is your last chance for a while, as the little critters won’t be available starting next month.
Are you more the fishing type? Here’s what you can look forward to starting in October:
If you haven’t caught an angelfish, catfish, or moray eel by now, this month is the last month you can do so for a while.
Last but not least, we have diving. Actually, there’s nothing of note in October. The creatures that were there last month will continue to be here this month and there are no new ones to report.
Well, that’s all that I’ve been able to find for this month. Do you have any tips or tricks you’d like to share? Does your experience differ from what’s listed above? Did you find this helpful? Let us know in the comments, and happy Crossing!
