The player selecting DS Suitcase when starting the game

DS Suitcase is a way of visiting another town in Animal Crossing: City Folk using a Nintendo DS to transfer the data to a different Wii. This is in contrast to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, where a player visits a different town via an internet connection, while still playing on the "home" Wii.

Visiting using DS Suitcase[edit]

To visit another town using the DS Suitcase, the player must go to the town gate, speak to Copper, and ask to go out, using DS Suitcase rather than Nintendo WFC. The DS is set to "Download Play", and the player details are downloaded to the DS.

Without switching off the DS (the lid can be closed), it is taken to the other ("visited") Wii, from where the player can be loaded by speaking to Rover at the initial screen, and selecting "DS Suitcase".

The visiting player is then visiting the town that resides on the visited Wii.

To return to the "home" Wii, the player must exit the visited town through the town gate. They can then return to their home town from the initial Rover screen, as above.

Limitations[edit]

  • If the DS is turned off, the DS Suitcase is lost.
  • If the player is reloaded on the home Wii, without returning through the DS Suitcase, their "assets" will be lost. "Assets" means all held items, and all cash (although not the savings account).
  • The DS cannot be used to play another game while it holds the DS Suitcase.
  • The savings account cannot be accessed while visiting another town.
  • The town cannot be visited (as per WFC).
  • The in-house storage (drawers, etc.) cannot be accessed (as per WFC).
