Like City Folk, Animal Crossing: New Leaf celebrated Festivale on February 8th.
When I got started with my game, I noticed a couple of my villagers really getting into the spirit of Festivale.
I decided that I needed to look the part, too! I pulled a Festivale tank and hair accessory out of storage, then headed to the Able Sisters to get some Festivale pants. I then went to Shampoodle and dyed my hair blue, just to be extra colorful! I am digging this look 😉
Next, I stopped and had a chat with Pavé, who is just as insane in this game as he is in City Folk. What is with this guy?!
In New Leaf, you have to collect feathers to give to Pavé in exchange for furniture. I’ll admit, I like this version of the holiday much better. You can still interact with your villagers to win or trade different color feathers, but you also find feathers floating around town to catch with your net. To me, this makes it much less aggravating because you are not obligated to talk to your villagers and play their ridiculous games of chance.
Anyway, I wandered around town for a bit, picking weeds as I kept an eye out for feathers. I also fell into a pitfall, which wasn’t very nice!
I hit the jackpot when I caught a rainbow feather! Pavé just LOVES his rainbow feathers. I handed it over to him, and he was thrilled. He gave me a Pavé chair for my efforts.
At this point, I wanted to play more, but my 3DS was running low on battery life. I headed to my house to display my Pavé chair with the other Pavé furniture I had collected in previous years. I hope to have the complete set one day!
That’s it for Festivale in Animal Crossing: New Leaf! Later!
