The Villager types are used in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Animal Crossing has been one of the most well known and most fun Nintendo DS games ever. In this game, you are assigned a job as a villager and help a new town to start out by creating your very own farm. Working with animals can be both fun and lucrative, which is why this game has become a continual success.

As a villager, you get to meet new people every day and get tasks from them. For example, if you ask for help with a fence, the villager will be happy to oblige and will reward you with a hug, a coin and even a tip. However, the more tasks you complete, the more money you get, and the more luxurious things you can give to your guests. Here is a list of all the villager types in the game.

An Overview

The first type is the General. This villager likes to just hang out at home, keeping animals like dogs and cats safe from enemies. This is the general type that appears in most versions of Animal Crossing. You can choose to be more helpful or less helpful (making your life harder). You can also buy houses, shops and other buildings for your character to use throughout the game.

The second villager type is the Gardener. The Gardener focuses more on plants than animals. You can buy seeds to plant throughout the town so that you can sell the plants for money. The Gardener is the character who can also build shelters for animals to live in. You can also obtain special items that are only available through gardening.

The third villager types is the Fisherman. The Fisherman will specialize in catching fish and then selling them for a higher price. You can get special fishing poles that are exclusive to the player once you obtain this villager class.

The fourth villager type is the cook. Animal Crossing has you going to restaurants to cook up food for the town. The downside to this is that you cannot choose which food you want to cook. If you are trying to eat at a specific restaurant, you have to go there and eat. The other downside is that you have special equipment for cooking that cannot be purchased any other way.

The fifth and final villager type is the Builder. This type of villager will choose which type of building his villa will be built in. You can build a house, shop, or even get someone to construct a bridge for you if you like.

The interesting thing about these villager types in Animal Crossing: Animal Crossing is that all of them have a certain type of music that plays when they become a villager. The more common ones are the “chi zen” song and the “town song.” Each villager has their own unique song and the music is different with each town that they move to. It is interesting to see how each villager feels like they fit in with the environment of the game.

For example, if you chose to live in town, you will be asked by the mayor to play an instrument for a period of time before you can take your next step. In this game, you have many different options as well. If you feel like being in an environment that is peaceful, you can choose to play instruments that have calming effects on the animals in the game, such as the windsurfer and the birdwatcher. If you want to be more adventurous, you can use the trumpet or anything that will get your animal to do the things that you ask of them.

Bottom Line

For some, playing the game might be too much to handle, especially if they are not used to online games. If you feel this way, you should try to play Animal Crossing with a friend. That way, you can help each other increase your villager level and unlock more villas. If you would rather play alone, there are still a lot of things for you to do. Just be sure not to invite everyone to come and play with you. That way, you can make the most of the game and have fun exploring all the things you unlocked as a villager.
