How can I make multiple towns with my Wii and ANIMAL CROSSING: CITY FOLK ?

It was so much fun to make a bunch of towns on a bunch of different Memory Cards on the Gamecube, and go back and forth between them. Just got a Wii, and am having trouble figuring out how to do multi-towns. There is only one ANIMAL CROSSING : CITY FOLK game-save allowed in the Wii system memory, it cannot be moved or copied, and I cannot figure out how to make games save on the SD card instead. Can it be done?

Without modding your Wii I don't believe there is anyway to do this. The save file, as you said, is locked to the system memory.

If you do a softmod of your Wii you'll be able to have multiple saves through an application the "extracts" save games as well as "installs" them.

I'm afraid zephyr_words has it - instead, you can visit the towns of other "internet people".

If your main goal is more fruit, here's a fruit "cheat" of sorts: Send your town's native fruit in a letter to a resident, and include the word "Fruit" in the message area. Eventually they will reply with fruit (either the same or different) or furniture.

man! that's lame. i loved having different gamecube towns.

as a piggy back question - with or without a softmod - is it possible to acquire the items that have been released as DLC? specifically the red pikmin hat?

nadawi, I'm guessing you can send and receive the item from others, and once it's in your collection, you can buy it from Nook. I think that means you can replicate it by sending one to friends, and buying another one for yourself from Nook, but that's just my guess.
