I love the character development in New Leaf
I mean, just look at how all the character’s lives have developed.
Tom Nook went into the home building business and let his nephews take over the shop. The belly he put on means that he’s getting older.
Labelle made peace with her sisters and works with them now. You can even see her little Gracie ribbon on a picture in the corner, symbolizing that she’s moved on from that point in her life.
Kapp’n, who used to be a flirt, now has a wife and a daughter. He still teases the player character about being cute, but it’s more of a fatherly teasing.
K.K. went from playing on a stool in front of a train station to being a DJ at the hottest (and only) nightclub in town.
Brewster now has his own place, instead of being stuck in the basement.
Blanca went from having people draw butts on her face to being in charge of a holiday.
Katie has gotten older, and now explores towns rather than getting lost.
And then there’s you. You went from living a life of few responsibilities, to becoming the mayor of your new town. You even got taller.
I just think that’s kind of beautiful in it’s own way.
Celeste went from being an astronomer to working in retail.
Blathers is doing the same job, but talks less. He doesn’t even tell you about the donations any more because you have an encyclopaedia for that.
Well, not everyone’s lives get better. The fact they got rid of constellations kind of burns me up too, though.
