Check out a brand new video interview on Nintendo Minute with Animal Crossing: New Leaf’s producer Katsuya Eguchi and director Aya Kyogoku.

It’s rather strange to conduct and publish an interview for a year old game, so it wouldn’t surprise me if there was some kind of Animal Crossing announcement in store for E3 next week. Of course, if there’s anything announced, you’ll see it right here on this blog!

A neat little easter egg has been discovered in the upcoming Wii U game release Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. When the player stops moving for a while, an idle animation is enacted with Donkey Kong taking out his Nintendo 3DS to play a selection of games.

One of those games is Animal Crossing: New Leaf as you can hear the 3PM hour music playing for a few seconds. The other two games played are Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D and Super Mario 3D Land. Check them all out in the video below, you’ll catch the Animal Crossing cameo at 24 seconds in:
