Nintendo held an investor meeting recently and at this meeting Iwata has revealed Nintendo’s plans to offer full retail games digitally on the eShop starting with New Super Mario Bros. 2 on the 3DS in August 2012. That’s pretty cool, but how does that relate to Animal Crossing you might say? Well, later in the meeting Iwata had the following to say about retail games going digital:

A few days ago Nintendo released brand new screenshots for Animal Crossing 3DS. Since then the screenshots have been on my mind the entire time. I’ve enlarged them and analysed them for new information to gather. I’ll go through each screenshot and point out what I see that’s new to the game. Let’s start with the first screenshot below…
Finally at last we have some new screenshots of Animal Crossing 3DS! Nintendo released four screenshots via it’s Nintendo Direct presentation. Iwata said that the game is well on the way into development and we should expect a release in Fall 2012 (Japan). The Japanese title for the game is “Tobidase Doubutsu no Mori” which translates to “Animal Crossing: Jump Out” in English however that translation is unofficial and the official English title may be different. You can find the screenshots after the jump.

Keep in mind this will be a conference hosted by Nintendo Japan so it won’t be in English!
Never the less there’s still hope for Animal Crossing 3DS news along with Luigi’s Mansion 2 and other things. Hopefully this will be the event where we finally get new information on Animal Crossing 3DS. If not this event, definitely at E3 2012. Have hope Animal Crossing fans!

Amazon France has updated their product page for Animal Crossing 3DS with a release date of September 28th 2012. I usually don’t report on release dates given by retailers like GameStop but I rarely have seen Amazon put up release dates that were unannounced so I think there’s a chance that this might be true. As usual, it isn’t an official date from Nintendo so don’t count on this date for sure. Sidenote: 55 days until E3 2012 where we’re sure to get new information on AC 3DS!
If you’re like me and the rest of the Animal Crossing fanbase you’ve been waiting a long time for the next Animal Crossing and finally we have a semi-official release window for Animal Crossing 3DS! Straight from the January edition of OMN (Official Nintendo Magazine) in the UK there’s an article detailing most of the new information from September which isn’t that new. However also in this preview is a ETA of Summer 2012! It’s kind of a big deal seeing as most of us have been expecting a holiday release this year. Anyway, if you want to see the entire preview the scans are below. Get hyped and pre-order Animal Crossing 3DS on Amazon!
