From the Vault: Animal Crossing 3DS Not in Development?
Update: Since this article was published, Animal Crossing has been confirmed as in development. Check the Animal Crossing hub for the latest news.
Update: Well of course Animal Crossing did eventually come to 3DS but it took a while. Still, this response from Nintendo attracted quite a bit of attention. A level of attention that would be great to have on the PS4 Pro side of things.
Since we saw a demo of Animal Crossing back in July, we haven’t had a shred of new information about it. Compare the lack of news in our Animal Crossing hub with the numerous articles for Nintendogs, Professor Layton, Kid Icarus or any other game developed by Nintendo.
Why the short supply of Animal Crossing information? In an interview with 3DS Buzz, James Honeywell, Nintendo UK’s head of marketing, seemed to be telling us that what we saw at E3 wasn’t necessarily a game in production, but rather a demonstration of what was possible.
…the demo was shown at E3 to showcase how an Animal Crossing game could and might look running on 3DS.
Now it could be nothing, but James Honeywell’s statement along with the lack of news on the game, point towards a long wait for Animal Crossing fans.
More from the interview coming tomorrow.
