[E3 2008] Welcome Back to Animal Crossing!


I’ve already shown you the WiiSpeak Microphone and Logitech’s new Wii keyboard that are both coming out in large part to support Animal Crossing: City Folk‘s community chat features, but I have yet to talk about the game itself or show you what it looks like. So let me change that right now!

Animal Crossing: City Folk isn’t changing all that much over what’s been seen in the past games, only now you’ll be able to venture into the big city to buy new clothes, visit the salon to get new hairstyles (or change into your Mii) and partake in various other city-going activities. The game will support up to four players “living” on one console and allow players to invite up to three friends into their town via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, which is where the WiiSpeak microphone will come in.

Not that much else to tell right now other than to watch for the game to release just in time for the holidays. Now I leave you with the first batch of media, including a gameplay clip and gallery filled with screenshots and character art, all located after the break.
