Background: In Animal Crossing you play as a customizable human character who moves into a small town full of anthropomorphic animals. The game works in real time and revolves primarily on collecting (furniture, insects, etc) and interacting with your neighbors and your environment. The game is open-ended, meaning that there is no real “end” to the game. As for the character himself, there is no real back story.
Reasoning: Confirmed for SSB4.
Thoughts: I never played any AC games not do I care to. At first I didn’t like the idea of adding the Villager to the roster, but I am all about being different and unique, and Villager definitely has that in spades. All the attention he has gotten in memes and such is obnoxious, but I think he will be a decent character as long as his Final Smash is original and well thought through and not something ridiculous or lazily slapped together.
