There is more variety in this game so you don't get bored waiting for certain things to happen. Being able to visit Tortimers island within the first few days after starting the game is great. The more mini games you play/win the more are unlocked. It also seems that different ones are available depending on the day. While you're on a mini game island you can shake trees and find fruit to put in your storage bin to take home with you and plant or sell. One of the great things about the recycle shop is the ablity to put unwanted items for sale in the flea market. Also, each day they have one or two items that they will give you a better price on(usually double the usual). The clothes designing is much easier, as well. The clothing shop is divided between clothes/designs and accessories(which may include shoes). One of the things exclusive to the 3ds version is the ablity to spend 2 playcoins on a fortune cookie that, once eaten, the fortune can be turned in for a prize that may not be available any other way. I've only been playing for about a week but I don't think I'll ever trade this one in. I may play it less over the years but I don't think I'll ever give it up completely.
