Wasabi Send-Off Issue
Going Out with a BANG!
The Wasabi News will be going on hiatus with the upcoming release of Animal Crossing New Leaf in North America on June 9th. On this date, the Glux Blog will be reporting on the English game. The Wasabi News will continue on, but in a different way. Mayor Neko would like to thank everyone for being such loyal readers and following the events of her town for the past six months! For more up-to-date information on Wasabi Village, please be sure to follow the Glux Box on Tumblr.
But before the Wasabi News turns off the presses, there was so much big news this week that we had to do one final issue! As Lyle would say, “The Wasabi News is going out with a BANG!”
As was rumored, following Mayor Neko’s fourth positive fashion evaluation from Gracie Grace, construction began on Main Street on June 3rd. The entire village waited impatiently for the world-class department store Nookington’s to open! This final store upgrade features three stories of shopping splendor! The first floor has all your daily needs, from tools and records to flower seeds and fertilizer. The second floor sells a wide variety of furniture, carpets and wallpaper options to decorate your home. The third floor is home to the world famous Gracie Grace Boutique, and the shop is run by the Fashionista him/herself! While Gracie’s prices might be sky high, the furniture is deluxe and exclusive, and every clothing purchase comes gift-wrapped. Mayor Neko was quick to pick up some new fashions for the summer!
ONE MILLION BELLS
Mayor Neko isn’t worried about the astronomical prices in the new boutique. That’s because she recently achieved a great feat – saving ฿1,000,000 in her bank account! The Post Office even sent her a rare and adorable Piggy Bank to commemorate the occasion. Well done, Mayor Neko! Don’t spend it all on one crown!
SEVERE WEATHER UPDATE
Temperatures have been rising rapidly. It is not advised to wear long sleeve shirts. On 6/4, an intense thunderstorm wracked Wasabi Village for the entire day. Thunder and lightning was observed, even from indoors. The townies had high spirits tho, and simply sported hats and umbrellas to keep dry!
Now that summer is in effect, many new (and large and scary) insects have been spotted roaming Wasabi and hanging on trees. One of the most fearsome of these summer bugs is the poisonous Tarantula, which can cause you to faint after just one bite. Mayor Neko had been searching for a Tarantula since the first of the month, but it wasn’t until 6/5 that the giant spider was spotted. Mayor Neko told the Wasabi News, “We have a lot of flowers in Wasabi, so I was having a hard time finding the Tarantula. I finally decided to just walk very slowly and really check every inch of town to find this insect. We can’t risk one of the townies being bit! I saw the Tarantula crawling by the river. At the time I had my shovel out, so I approached the Tarantula, knowing that he’d try to run away instead of attacking. A Tarantula will only attack if you have your net out. I chased the Tarantula into a more wide open area, and as he started scurrying away, I fumbled to get my net out. I must have gotten really lucky – the moment I switched to the net was when the Tarantula was facing away from me, since he was trying to escape. Immediately I turned and swung the net, before the Tarantula had time to react! I caught it and nobody was hurt!” The Tarantula was safely donated to the Wasabi Museum, where it is now on display in the Bug Exhibit.
On 6/7, Mayor Neko was swimming in the ocean and doing a bit of diving. She spotted a somewhat large shadow and dove deep into the water to chase it down. When the Mayor swam back up, she realized she was holding a rare Scallop. Quickly after, she realized that someone was swimming up behind her. The seafaring beaver Pascale was looking to make a trade! He wanted Mayor Neko to give him the Scallop, in exchange for some words of wisdom and an exclusive pirate ship furniture item. In the end, Mayor Neko came home with an Anchor… but that also means there is still no Scallop in the Wasabi Museum.
