Remember the Developer Round Table video for Jump Out Animal Crossing
(Japanese Title)? Well, it showed off some cool photographs of internal art documents were you can see changes to character sizes, the new assistant, Tom Nook in his yellow suit, and one of the village map design. The village map picture is the one that got the most attention because it shows off a lot of neat new areas that haven't been discussed or revealed yet! The photos were all crooked, had poor colors, and were kind of blurry though.
Since we have a few graphic artists at N+ we decided to take those photos and fix them up! Now we can see things much more clearly and try to decode the hints in the map! There is someone fishing in a boat, a few neat looking islands, one island looks like it even has some sort of bridge, a big bonfire on the beach, and even some mystery cave in the cliffs to the east of the village in the ocean! I hope this mystery cave is like the one in the movie! It was super cool!
