Animal Crossing: Town Toad is a game in the Animal Crossing series published by Nintendo and developed by HAL Laboratory. The gameplay is most Animal Crossing games, but instead of the usual character, you play as Mario (series) characters.


You hop out of a moving truck, and the driver askes you a few questions: Are you a boy or a girl? What is your name? Are you a Toad, Koopa, or Shy Guy? How old are you?

After you answer the questions, the driver then directs you to your new house. It is old, has a red roof, and is made of wood. Inside, it has a candle, a small bed, and a TV with no remote. After you leave, Mr. Tosroo offers you a job in his shop. You follow him to the shop, Shrooms and Goods, and he sends you on a mission to meet the residents. After you do, he pays you with Gold Coins. The longer you are in the shop, the more missions you collect, leaving you with more money.
