Many of us have expected this for a while now but Nintendo of America has just confirmed via Twitter that Animal Crossing 3DS will be releasing in the first half of 2013 in the Americas. Meanwhile Japan will be getting the game on November 8th.
Furthermore, in their Animal Crossing tweet they specified first half of 2013 while for their Luigi’s Mansion (also releasing in 2013) tweet they specified first quarter of 2013.
Take it as you will but in my opinion this means a May or June release date rather than around March. Even if we won’t be getting the game soon, we will at least be getting lots of videos on the game leading up to the Japanese release.
Watch Iwata walk us through all the greatness of Animal Crossing 3DS in this 3 minute video from the August 29th Nintendo Direct! Unfortunately, it’s in Japanese. If you can translate this for the blog please contact me!
Oh yeah… we have an official release date for Japan now! November 8th. Save the date everyone!
Woah, just a month after Famitsu had two pages on Animal Crossing 3DS, we’ve got more information from another magazine! Be sure to click on the thumbnails for the large high resolution versions. And finally, don’t forget to speculate on what you see in the comments below!
A few weeks back there were a few pages in the Japanese magazine Famitsu showing Animal Crossing 3DS but of course we couldn’t really read it. I posted a video on here analysing the pages but it wasn’t really a translation. However, there’s now some translated details coming from Nintendo Everything.
Some of this was already known but there’s still lots here. The details are after the break as it’s fairly long.
Remember that preview for Nintendo Power showing a page on Animal Crossing? Well, we got a paragraph or two detailing information from June’s Nintendo Direct. Yeah, not the most useful thing in the world. The only interesting thing is that they’ve translated it as Animal Crossing: Going Out which makes zero sense as everyone else seems to have decided on Jump Out or Fly Out instead. Weird. Make sure to keep in mind, Nintendo Power is speculating on the name just as much as we are, it’s not an official translation or anything.
