Nintendo confirms new Animal Crossing for 2008

During their E3 press conference Nintendo has confirmed they will be releasing a new Animal Crossing game for the Wii (titled Animal Crossing: City Folk). The game is supposed to mimic a MMO, but not play like one. Ninty comment that it is a game “where players could feel like they are playing together even if they are playing at different times.”

Nintendo have confirmed that the game will hit the US this year, but Europe should not get too excited just yet as it is likely we may have to wait longer for the game like we did with many game we saw at last years conference.

The last console based Animal Crossing was released in 2004 in Europe, that was two years after the US release.
