A bunch of fans sent Nintendo of America emails asking about Animal Crossing 3DS recently after the events of E3. Here’s the mass email reply they sent out to everyone who asked:
Thanks for contacting us. I can certainly understand your disappointment that Animal Crossing was not talked about further at the recent E3 conference. I’ll be certain to document your feedback and report that you want to see Animal Crossing released for the Nintendo 3DS to the appropriate departments here at Nintendo.
Believe me, we are every bit as excited as you are to learn more about what’s coming. Eventually, we will pull back the curtain and share all the new and exciting details on our website (www.nintendo.com) but I’m unable to say when we might release more details to the public.
I want to make sure that you know that the Animal Crossing franchise is still very important to Nintendo, which is why it is one of the games featured in the upcoming Nintendo Land game for the Wii U (http://e3.nintendo.com/games/#/wiiu/nintendo-land). While I know this wasn’t the answer you were hoping for, I appreciate your enthusiasm for the Animal Crossing series.
Nintendo of America Inc.
So basically just standard PR jumbo from Nintendo of America telling us to look forward to a freakin’ mini-game in Nintendo Land. Sigh.
Um. Excuse me for a moment but, WHAT THE HELL NINTENDO? The 3DS Presentation just ended and they didn’t mention Animal Crossing 3DS at all. Not even a screenshot. It may be delayed until 2013. More details in a second.
Note that this doesn’t confirm a 2013 release but don’t you think it’s extremely odd they didn’t show it at E3 2012 at all? The video does say “and more” but really would they show Transformers over a first party game like Animal Crossing? I doubt it.
Disappointed at the lack of Animal Crossing 3DS news at yesterday’s E3 Presentation? You’re not alone. Luckily for you Nintendo is hosting a second hour-long event exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS and it’s upcoming games at 6PM PDT/9PM PDT. Will we be keeping you covered on the blog here live with all the news as it happens? You bet. You can also watch it live on Nintendo’s E3 website.
What can we expect? I’m guessing additional information on the 3DS games already shown yesterday, new trailer for Animal Crossing 3DS, localization announcements of Layton and Fire Emblem plus a surprise new game announcement. Of course, it could be much worse but let’s be hopeful!
Take look at some more gameplay videos of Animal Crossing: Sweet Day, which for those not paying attention is an Animal Crossing themed minigame in Nintendo Land for the Wii U. Again, I realize this isn’t Animal Crossing 3DS news but it’s still pretty interesting. Hopefully we will get Animal Crossing 3DS news tomorrow at the 3DS Software Showcase. Check out the videos after the break.
Well, this is rather disappointing. There wasn’t any Animal Crossing 3DS news today at Nintendo’s E3 Presentation. However, they did show off an Animal Crossing minigame for the Wii U as part of “Nintendo Land”.
Animal Crossing: Sweet Day is an Animal Crossing themed minigame included in the new Nintendo Land game for the Wii U. Stay tuned for more details soon.
However, there is still hope for Animal Crossing 3DS as Nintendo is still holding a 3DS presentation tomorrow at 6PM PDT. More details on that later.
The moment we’ve all been waiting for is nearly upon us. Nintendo’s E3 2012 Conference is about to begin and here at AC3DS Blog we’ll be keeping you covered with any Animal Crossing 3DS news to come out of the show. Be sure to refresh often!
There’s also another Nintendo event on Wednesday at 6-7PM PDT which is entirely focused on the Nintendo 3DS. It’s possible we won’t get much today for the 3DS and have to wait until tomorrow for 3DS stuff but nobody really knows besides Nintendo. We shall see!
You can watch Nintendo’s prenstation live on their official E3 website by going to E3.Nintendo.com
It’s that time of the year! That’s right, we’re now just 2 days away from E3 2012 where Nintendo will be talking about all the upcoming 3DS games you’re looking forward to. Expect to see TONS of new screenshots, videos and information about Animal Crossing 3DS. Perhaps Nintendo will even share a new English name for the game.
Anyway, it all kicks off with Nintendo’s E3 Presentation at 9:30AM PDT on Tuesday, June 5th. Furthermore, there will also be a Software Showcase presentation hosted at 6:00PM PDT on Wednesday, June 6th. We may see Animal Crossing 3Ds at one event, or both.
