You then play through Animal Crossing while doing partially legal and extremely illegal jobs. You soon find Tom Nook with your bells. After killing Nook, you earn access to Tom's bank account. You soon get involved in corrupt mafia business. Due to the empire you created with Nook's money and the mafia's respect being unbearably large, someone put those pieces together, and ended up with you. The Nooklings invaded your penthouse, and murdered your men. After regaining control of your empire, it ends with a shootout against the Nooklings.
