    Visit Lots of Towns in Your Dreams!
    When you sleep in the Dream House, you visit an actual person’s real town. You can freely walk around their town and visit houses while dreaming!

    Make a Best Friend!
    Become best friends with your Nintendo 3DS friends! If both you and your friend save one another as best friends, you will be informed of when that person comes online and even if you aren’t currently visiting their town, you can still talk to them by sending messages!

    KK’s Famous Tunes Are Now Club Music?!
    Every Saturday night you can enjoy listening to KK Slider’s music at “Club 444.” (Note: Club 444 in Japanese is referred to as “Club Shi Shou” or “Club See Show” – it’s a cute pun.) From Sunday to Friday, during D.J. KK Time, you can enjoy KK’s normal sound with a club music twist!

    I got some screens of my playing, really enjoying it.





    If there’s one thing I’ll say is a downside to having so much more content (shopping district wise and the mayor stuff) is that it seems to take a while to really get going to allow you to have/do everything as stuff comes at you incrementally. That’s not a bad thing, but after watching the directs beforehand and seeing all the cool other shops it really makes me wish you could start with them all.

    In the earliar games it wasn’t too bad as you started with Abel/Nooks and that was all you were going to get (barely played City Folk so can’t comment on the start), you kind of felt that you had all the tools avaliable for you to really get going, where as this time as I’m doing my mayoral tasks to go towards being a proper mayor and being able to do stuff, it seems I’m kind of hindered to go at a pace the game seems to have set itself.

    Overall impressions however are really positive from me. I love it.
