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

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.

No Animal Crossing 3DS news at the E3 Presentation but here’s something else

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.

Amazon France removes September 28th release date

A month back we reported on Amazon France’s listing of September 28th as a release date for Animal Crossing 3DS. At the time I said that there might be a grain of truth to the date based on previous Amazon release date predictions. However since then the listing has been removed and the game is back to “Coming Soon”. Not a big update but I figured you guys might want to know. In other news we’re now just three weeks away from E3 2012. Get your hype on!

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:

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.

Amazon France says September 28th Release Date for Animal Crossing 3DS

September 28th Amazon Rumor

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!
