Animal Crossing 3DS video and info blow out

12:15 PM on 10.06.2012 // Jonathan Holmes

Nintendo held a live stream presentation for Tobidase Dobatsu no Mori (roughly translated as Animal Crossing: Jump Out) yesterday, and the sheer amount of hot Animal Crossing facts that blasted our faces were unprecedented. Anyone who's followed the Animal Crossing series from the start knows that the series is all about minutia, and that includes the amount of changes that are made from game to game. This new title for the 3DS continues that trend, though there a few new editions that seem like quantum leaps into the future, at least by Animal Crossing standards.

As a diehard fan of the series, my jaw dropped when I saw the return of the tropical island, that K.K. Slider had become a part-time D.J., that you could swim down to the ocean floor, and that you can now enter a massage-induced dream world. It almost felt like too much, until I saw that the dream world in Animal Crossing looks exactly like the regular world in Animal Crossing. I wouldn't want it any other way.

The new stuff don't stop there. Hit the jump for a full rundown of the newly announced features, along with videos from our homeboy Nintendaan

The ultimate waifu has been decided scientifically. There is no need to participate in the waifu wars any longer. (I won't tell you who it is until I make my own post of course)

I'm starting to get really excited for the approach of the new FE games! I'm going to revisit Awakening. Are any of the DLCs worth it at all? (AKA what's the deal with the Future Past DLC?)

Downloading Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth. It feels a little weird to be installing a game on the Vita that isn't porn, if I'm being perfectly honest.

There's gonna be enough copies of both Fire Emblem: Birthright and Fire Emblem: Conquest that I shouldn't really feel the need to preorder them at Best Buy, right? I want to get both versions (I buy physical only) and I'm worried they won't have enough.
