Some adventures cannot begin without naming your character. It’s when Final Fantasy Clouds can be Squalls. Or Freds. Some games provide the option to change your character’s name at the start screen. Others integrate protagonists’ intros and renaming prompts in clever ways. These five games do the latter.
Today, Nintendo announced that it’s releasing Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem apps for mobile devices.
Watching an estimated 70-hour Animal Crossing 100 percent “speedrun” is hard. I keep popping into rolfkon’s stream to try and follow his attempt, but then start getting sympathetic feelings of drowsiness. Even too sleepy to ask why it says “cum” in the bottom left.
No, thank you, Animal Crossing.
Happy Leap Day! Now get back to work.
Leaving Isabelle in charge during an extended visit to another game entirely, the Villager returns to find his Animal Crossing town in a slightly more socialist state than he left it. Oh that Isabelle.
For whatever reason, there hasn’t been a proper Animal Crossing game on the Wii U yet. If there was, though, it could look a lot worse than this effort by TheBitBlock.
Lottie from Animal Crossing joins the Amiibo army today. She’s a Target exclusive in the States (Best Buy in Canada). I know this because I am a well-informed member of the gaming press, and not because I was at Target when they opened this morning, dammit.
Up until last Friday I possessed a grand total of two Amiibo figures. Now I own nine, and I’m eagerly awaiting the release of more. It’s too bad the game they’re attached to is a snooze-festival.

From Tumblr You Booze You Lose, this Bull Terrier is way better equipped to express his love for Animal Crossing’s KK Slider than our ridiculous human bodies could ever be.
Nooooooo. This is how they get you. This is exactly how Nintendo gets you to spend money on stuff that might just end up in a landfill in a few years.
For months, I’ve had a specific if not dubious plan for Happy Home Designer. An evil scheme. A dastardly design. I’ve been waiting a long time to make this happen, damn it.
The new Animal Crossing is letting you choose your skin tone. People have been asking for the option for years, and Nintendo’s granting their wish with Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. It’s a step in the right direction, albeit a long overdue one. Hopefully it’ll carry over to the next full Animal Crossing game.
Nintendo is not bringing a proper Animal Crossing to their home console, but, rather, a virtual board game supporting up to four players. Each player uses an Amiibo.
The 3DS decorating game Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer now has a September 25 release date, according to Nintendo. The game is expected to support Amiibos that are in the form of trading cards.
This image is currently viewable on Nintendo of Europe’s site (via Eurogamer). It appears to show new Animal Crossing Amiibo, as well as an old-school Mario for Mario Maker, alongside some Amiibo we know already. We’re guessing they’ll make an official appearance at next week’s Nintendo Direct.
