Not major news or anything but in a preview of the latest Nintendo Power (August) there will apparently be some space on a page related to Animal Crossing 3DS. I’m sure it won’t be anything too big but with the news drought lately it doesn’t hurt to mention it. You can check out the preview here. The AC 3DS mention is on the last page of the PDF.
Latest Animal Crossing News
Nintendo just released their earnings report for this last quarter and with that comes an updated launch schedule for each region. To summarize, the current official release timeframes are as follows…
Japan: Fall 2012
North America: TBD (to be dated)
The source of this data can be found in the Quarterly Earnings PDF report on Nintendo’s website.
Sorry, I’m a bit late on this but here’s a video translation analysis of the Japanese Famitsu scan from a few weeks ago. Hope this helps out if you were curious about the scan!
Here’s a new Animal Crossing 3DS scan from the Japanese magazine Famitsu. There’s a couple new screenshots/features to be found so make sure to take a good look at the scan.
I got some sad news here folks. Animal Crossing 3DS has been confirmed for Early 2013 in Europe. Based on this and the lack of the game being mentioned on the American Nintendo Direct we can assume the same for North America. That last bit however is not confirmed. Stay tuned.
Keep in mind this is pure speculation but the English Nintendo Direct just ended with no mention of Animal Crossing 3DS while the Japanese one had a 3 minute video saying 2012. Again, just speculation but does this imply a 2013 release for North America/Europe? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
It’s actually a rather long video! 3 minutes long! 2012 release date! Iwata is talking over it but it’s in Japanese. Video will be uploaded here in a few minutes! Hold tight.
