This is the third and last post we will do about Neko Atsume. Why? Well, it’s in English now, so you don’t need our help anymore. The first two posts are mostly about how to play and some tips and tricks, and they’re mostly still useful, even though you can understand the game now. I recommend that you check those out, and ignore all the parts where we seem confused. Okay, here’s some more stuff.
English Language Update
First things first. If you haven’t done so or haven’t figured it out, go on ahead and change your game to English. Even though it means you won’t come back here anymore, we’ll tell you how. First, without comprehending anything, tap the paw print on the top left of your yard to get to the menu. Once you’re in the menu, tap the gear! That is settings, which you will soon learn. Then, obviously, tap English. Voila! Please don’t abandon us forever.
Some Small Changes
In addition to the game now having the option to be in English, there were a few more changes in this update. There are some brand new toys, one new cat, and a new remodel option. It’s great stuff, but a pretty small update aside from the language. One more thing that was updated is that you can scroll backwards to the end of a menu now. That’s pretty nice considering how long some of them are getting. If they are going to keep us addicted though, I’m not sure adding one cat every few months is going to cut it. Maybe you can get addicted to us instead?
It is time. Now you can read all about your cat friends in a way that was pretty limited before. For example, I now know that my Orange Tabby Bart is a “lady-killer.” Excellent, Bart. I knew you had it in you. Also, his power level is 150, which means nothing, still, but I’m proud of him. You can also see how many visits they have made to you, if you want to depress yourself. 277 visits means Bart and I are practically married.
Anyway, the best part about being able to read the profiles is not knowing that Ken is a team player, but being able to see their favorite toys (goodies, as the app calls them). This way, you know what to lure them back with. Can we possibly lure you here with some more screenshots?
An extra special bonus about the game being in English now is that you can actually do the daily bonus without spending 15 minutes doing screenshots and copying Japanese text. Now that the menu is in English, I trust that you can navigate to the password yourself (click News in the menu). The password is now in English and a hilariously simple word. Tap right on it and then on Input Password. Today it was “bean” and I hope you enjoy spending 4 seconds getting a bunch of fish every day.
We can read everything! If you’ve been playing the whole time, make sure to go through and check everything out. It’s predictably adorable! The cat personalities and descriptions, the food names, the toy names, and especially what the hell those mementos (not treasures!) were all along. Hint: this one is not poops!
