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.

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.

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

12 years ago 1 Comment

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!
