I just thought of a problem with this concept: you can have four people in town. There can't be four mayors of the same town!

Well, they say we don&#39;t much information....sooo..who says there&#39;s four people? All I&#39;ve seen is like eight pics. From the looks, it has to be one per game card, which could be good and bad. Course you lose the other three people, but without their files, Nintendo could add more to the game.

If we don&#39;t know much, how do we know about being mayor? Did Nintendo say that or is it a rumor?

That&#39;s about all we know,


"Details are scarce at the moment but we can confirm that you&#39;ll be playing as the mayor of your town. With the help of the townsfolk and &#39;one eager secretary&#39; it&#39;ll be your job to make the town a better place to live."

less excited? I think this will be pretty good. It will add more things to do, and keep you playing, maybe a kinda story/plot, more features can be added since there doesn&#39;t need to be large memory pieces for the other three people, and hopefully more stuff like the fountain, windmill, so on, in city folk.

Least that&#39;s how i&#39;m looking at it and what I&#39;m looking forward to.

Agreed&#33; Gyroids are awsome.

I doubt they&#39;ll make it work, just like a glorified city folk town fund with the upgrades, maybe having to fix a trivial problem here or there.

1) I&amp;#39;ll order my animal slaves to build a statue of me. <br />
2) I&amp;#39;ll make unnecessary laws. <br />
3) I&amp;#39;ll start an empire, called Gyroidia. <br />
4) I&amp;#39;ll conquer the nearest towns and enlarge build up my empire....

Oh yeah... A small story mode would be nice.
I don&#39;t mean a full on story mode, but a series of events that take place, and when you finish story mode you get the credits, and some super cool item, but you still get to play freely.

I don&#39;t think they could fit four towns onto the card, one is a lot, let alone the other three. but honestly, one wont be bad. Don&#39;t know about the rest of you, but I only had one person I used on WW. I saw no point to the four. So I&#39;d much rather take one file, with a bunch of extra features and all that, than a four character game like the older versions.

Most videogames have room for more than one game. I don&#39;t think they would limit it to one person.

Superbiobugy
06-18-2010, 03:32 PM
Still, that&#39;s kinda pointless. Besides, They&#39;re a company. Why make it able for multiple people per card when you can make it one per and sell more copies. Plus i&#39;m sure much of that memory has to be devoted to the 3D since it requires multiple shots.

I think by Mayor they mean the design of your town. Like in one picture there is a bench and lamppost in the town. Kinda like the Sims

Also with the Mayor thing. half of my wants it not to be true - Since I liked Tortimor and he was nice to see waddling around on holidays and events. But the other half of me wants it to be true, &#39;cause if it is true you would get new features and stuff.

Maybe a younger mayor? Another human as mayor?

There should be three potential mayors:
You
Tortimer (Starting one)
and someone else
and every year or so there&#39;d be an election, and the animals in town would vote on who they want, and the town would change depending on that.

@Everyone questioning how you&#39;d be able to have 4 mayors, i&#39;d assume the other 3 are just normal villagers, or that the other three might have a special position too. OR Maybe Nintendo would be crazy enough to make four mayors :O

I like the idea of having to work to become mayor with maybe a very loose plot, and that as the ending, like others have said, and then maybe the gameplay changes with new features with your power as mayor... As long as they keep the "do whatever you want, whenever you want" at your own pace, I might be into that. Like, the game won&#39;t bug you to become mayor if you don&#39;t want to, I suppose.

I was kind of in a fluffle about it at first, but I&#39;m warming to the possibilities. How it actually comes out, though, remains to be seen...
