Where the hell did all this weird negativity come from? No one said they weren’t coming out with a proper AC for Wii U ever. It’s like screaming ‘no more Mario!’ after seeing Mario Party for the first time.

Also, New Leaf is barely 2 years old (in the USA). Nintendo’s not Activision; they don’t (and won’t) have the budget to churn out yearly installments. Which is a good thing, because that’s how you stale out a series.
