Famitsu has posted up details on the new Animal Crossing for Nintendo 3DS.
According to the magazine there are a whole host of new features on the way, such as the ability to play as major.
In addition, a new gardening store has been added, which seems to be run by a sloth. According to Famitsu reports (via GoNintendo), he stocks bags of flower seeds and tree seedlings, presumably to plant around your town.
There are plenty of other new additions too, such as customisable roofs, posts and fences, upgrades to the museum and more.
