Is Animal Crossing 3DS delayed to 2013? No listing of it in the 2012 releases for 3DS!

8 years ago 70 Comments

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.

Screw this junk. Nintendo has failed me.

However he did say “and more” which COULD include AC3DS, but would also say that Nintendo does not consider it a big game.

I don’t think Nintendo would consider Animal Crossing an “and more” game. It looks like it’ll be 2013 before we see anything!

He did say and more at the end … so maybe there was no AC logo there because it was not featured in the showcase ,but that could just be me holding on to the hope that it is released this year.

Considering the fact that this was announced 2 years ago and still doesn’t even have a tentative release date, even for 2013, Nintendo is making a dick move. This is not a minor game that can be tossed aside and not talked about at a big game show like this. People are clamoring to throw their money at the company for AC, and they not even so much as put the logo on the screen to confirm it hasn’t been scrapped or ported to the Wii U (I’m hoping that doesn’t happen). In all honesty, if they dare to release… Read more »

Animal Crossing has been announced for release in Japan this fall in Japan’s Pre-E3 Nintendo Direct. This probably means there’s a slight chance we might get late holiday season, or most likely early next year.

Yeah, but do you seriousley think it’d come out that much later in the US and Europe? Usually, first party games don’t come out that much later in the other regions, do they? I mean, I know it takes time to write new dialogues in English, cuz it’s not like they just do a direct translate, but still…

I understand if they weren’t able to get the game out this year. But the fact that they haven’t given ANY new information about it in months is pretty shitty. Animal Crossing is a big franchise for Nintendo and has a pretty loyal fanbase, with many (including myself) first hearing about it TWO YEARS AGO. For two years people have been waiting for details, and now here we are with barely any information on it, neither a definite title nor a release date, and very little on the new features. If they make us wait three years for the game… Read more »

Guys, I think that they didn’t release anything because they’ve already revealed so many details. I mean, the thing looks next to done, doesn’t it? As much as I absolutley NEED to know about this game, because of how cool it sounds, nobody, deep down, likes a spoiler. When we finally DO get the game, it’d suck not to look forward to adventuring the cool new places that the map we got at the confrence showed us. I want to explore the cave, and adventure downtown. I want to sail to the islands, and find out what lies just down… Read more »

I’m afraid I can’t agree with you on any of this. 1) You seem to not want any details released because you — as a single person — prefer complete secrecy on the game’s details. 2) You seem to think that the reason Animal Crossing is fun is because you can explore new areas in the world, that the heart of the game is in exploration and not in living out a cute, quiet life in a seaside town, but that would mean that the game stops being fun or entertaining for most of the audience after a single day.… Read more »

He is true with Animal Crossing City Folk they didnt spoil it and they did give us quite abit of genrous details in late 2011 and early 2012…Just saying so dont Crusify me

NinjaPenguin120

NinjaPenguin120

I do love details, and, I DO want more, but there is still such thing as too much of a good thing. Don’t get me wrong, I love the seaside town, and get that it’s about doing what you please, but at the moment, I want to wait untill closer to the release for some of the NIDDY GRIDDY things. Like we know, some of the great things about AC is in the details. I want to know more and all, but if we know EVERYTHING about the game too EARLY, we think about it subconsiously so much, that after… Read more »

your acting like animal crossing minecraft. like i said, what we want to see in the game is more customization and interaction. we don’t give a hoop about the places we can explore,items we can use and wear, and characters we can meet. animal crossing is about interaction and customization not discovery and adventure. point. blank. period.

True, but… still…

chillv

still what? but if you don’t want much to be revealed to “YOU” personally, then avoid watching any trailers or looking at screenshots. but we personally want to see at least a small feature in the game, but you are right that they should’nt reveal the whole game don’t get me wrong, im just saying we don’t want them to not say anything about the game. the reason why I said your treating animal crossing like minecraft is because in minecraft your not told anything at all, you have to find out everything yourself, without the wiki every player would… Read more »

How can you spoil a game like Animal Crossing? You can’t. Animal Crossing is one of those games that doesn’t have enemies, bosses, or an end. You can’t spoil it no matter how hard you try. Even if you could, Nintendo wouldn’t do such a thing.

The whole reason I bought the frikken 3DS is for that game. And now I’m hearing its delayed till 2013? Jesus Christ…. I mine as well sell my system. Heroes of Ruin multiplayer looks sorta cool. But all they really showed was just Mario related games. Nothing new. Just over milked Mario games over and over and over again. To sum it all up, E3 2012 was total garbage IMO.

NinjaPenguin120

NinjaPenguin120

That’s just speculation. Thay wouldn’t have fully 100% confirmed it for fall 2012 if they weren’t almost done. If they’re almost done, which they are, they won’t delay it. And you, person reading this, don’t pull the OH-YEAH-WELL-THEN-WHY-WON’T-THEY-RELEASE-ANY-DETAILS-ABOUT-THE-GAME,-HUH? card, as all companies do the folowing: They wait till near the release, near the time they confirm an actual date of real release and give away details. And we have AT LEAST 3 months till the release, and the fact that we don’t have a release date other than fall doesn’t worry me TOO much. Yeah, I’m pissed off, but it… Read more »

@NinjaPenguin120 Let me say this in the most civilized way possible. We just want to see the new things we can do in the game such as customization and interaction, not the stuff thats in the game like stores,characters and items, we want to be surprised with that. ok im done with you so im going to say my comment. THEY SAID THAT DEVELOPMENT WAS GOING SMOOTHLY, IF IT WAS GOING SO SMOOTHLY THEN WHY IS IT DELAYED TO 2013? and why did’nt they mention any of their games? do they think third-party companies are better them or something? and… Read more »

I going to that too

2010: A new animal crossing is coming out

2011: We’re giving you only 2 pictures you actually care about and a trailer

2012: We’re only going to give them a few pictures and lie that development is going smoothly and don’t say anything after that

The whole reason i bought the 3DS was FOR ANIMAL CROSSING. THEN THEY JUST CRUSH MY DREAMS ONCE AGAIN. W.T.F. NINTENDO?!

chillv

me too, I skipped mario kart 7,Orcarina Of time 3d,kid icarus uprising and more for this game (no offense but I was’nt looking foward to those games anyway because Im personaly just not interested in their concepts but if you want to hear about that you can visit my website gamerxextreme.webs.com). and because of that this is just infuriating

Same here. I got a 3DS for Animal Crossing 3DS. Mario Kart 7 is still fun but after a bit, you get bored as you finish exploring all the features in the game, but in AC, new things appear every day.

Traceguy

I’ve sent Nintendo an email expressing our feelings. This won’t go unnoticed.

they first announced the AC:3D in 2010! So I saved up money to buy a 3DS. Now my 3DS has been collecting dust just waiting for freaking AC:3D for nearly two years! damn Nintendo

Thank you for sending in the e-mail. I too, saved up my money by selling old games and my ipod to buy a 3DS. I waited eagerly for Animal Crossing to come out in April…then it got pushed to May…now in 2013, now, it’s sitting on my shelf and hasn’t been powered on yet.

Suck my two middle fingers Nintendo t(-__-t)

What is going on? Why haven’t Nintendo given us a new trailer yet? AND WHY HAVE THEY PUSHED IT TO FRIGGIN 2013?! I am Really, Really, Dangerously Anooyed! I was so looking forward to having it for Christmas. I even had a dream that I was playing on it. I am so devastated! Nintendo have not realised how many fans are angry at them. The AC fans (including me) were looking foward to it. Why did they show a bleeding Transformers preview? Seriously Nintendo! Get a grip! They rudely rejected AC3DS and put it in the “and more” bit.

They may not wanna release it now because of the wii u and all that.

Actually thats a myth because nothing bad has happened. Correction, nothing bad has happened in only a handful of places and where I live. (something only almost happens where I live.) BUT WHAT NAIVE FOOL BELIEVES THAT THE WORLD WILL END IN 2012 OR ANY YEAR? But im sure your just joking. (At least I hope you didn’t fall for this loony trick mankind is trying to pull.)

NinjaPenguin120
Guest
NinjaPenguin120

Why’s everyone pissed off at me? (Okay, not everyone) I just want to wait a bit untill we find out the SMALL details. I’m curious as hell about the islands, and the cave, and the cafes, and the town layout, but the tiny pleasent suprises are what make AC great.

Why won’t anyone f~¢#ing accept that?

chillv
Guest
chillv

actually, im not mad at you, im just saying I disagree with you. In my opinion, ac is about interaction and customization. In your opinion, ac is about discovering new features and items, but truly, thats not what ac is about. but really, we all have different perspectives when we play games so what its really about doesn’t matter.

This wait is driving me up the wall. It’s almost as if nintendo don’t want to aknowledge it’s existence. No wonder there are so many rumours its been cancelled. I’m not to concerned about detail, i’d just like confirmation it IS going to be released. I should point out the Japan fall 2012 release is not a confirmed one.

Animal Crossing 3DS is taking a long time isn’t it. I was hoping to get it for Christmas but now, I’ll have to wait further and play Wild World more.

I’m also sad that AC is pushed off but Nintendo is just trying to improve it for us so as people say just cut them some slack.And also it isn’t like their canceling the game or say sorry only Japan gets the game and unless you know Japanese you don’t get the game.

Yeppers, this is the problem with Nintendo, they always announce their legit games early, Super Smash Bros. 4 for instance, and they release it in like 4 years, with almost no detail! Unfortunately, their SHIT games are announced early, and release the next fucking second.

I lost all respect for Nintendo (at least the recent version) from the way they aren’t even giving any news on how close they are to finishing. They have given out at least 5 different release dates and failed to meet them all so now they are trying to sweep it under the carpet and cut all news about it. I can’t believe Nintendo, I might even go get a PS3 now because at least I know when the games for THAT are coming out.
