Animal Crossing

The latest reward on the Japanese Club Nintendo site is a pair of Animal Crossing magnets. Members can order the items for 250 points starting today.


An Animal Crossing Pocket Diary is coming to Club Nintendo Japan. It comes with four different cover designs and 148 pages. The reward will be made available for 200 points.


Animal Crossing: New Leaf was arguably the series’ most successful entry since the original GameCube title. Eventually, Nintendo will be taking what made the 3DS title so enjoyable and applying it to a brand new entry.

According to Katsuya Eguchi, Nintendo has “already started thinking about what to do next” with Animal Crossing. However, Eguchi told EDGE that no set direction has been determined yet.

It’s also worth mentioning that Eguchi wouldn’t confirm which platform the next Animal Crossing will be on. While most anticipate a Wii U release happening eventually, Eguchi stated Nintendo must first settle on which platform to make the next game for.

“We have already started thinking about what to do next, but there is no concrete direction yet. First, we need to decide which hardware to develop a new Animal Crossing for, and then we want to use that hardware and find out what it’s capable of and what kind of features it provides. Then we can start thinking of elements of Animal Crossing and how we can realise them using the hardware. So until we discover these new inventions, we will not decide the direction.”
