Animal Crossing MMO: You have got to be kidding me, right?

I'm actually one of the few people who, despite wanting to, really didn't like Animal Crossing very much. Having played the DS version for weeks, I suddenly came to the realization that I was playing what amounted to little more than a boredom sim. Today, however, it seems that Nintendo is flooring me with the perfect rebuttal -- Animal Crossing: The MMO.

All we know so far is that Edge magazine has the news confirmed from a Japanese source and that this will affect the Wii version of the game. For a system not known for its online exploits, the merger of a beloved IP with a perfect MMO platform is something that could propel the Wii into the Internet gaming market almost instantly.  

Nintendo itself won't confirm a thing, but I propose we board Tom Nook up in his shop and set fire to it until someone talks. Even if someone doesn't, the image of an anthropomorphic raccoon screaming in a boarded up shop as he burns to death is absolutely hilarious.

You may not think so, but after the first time, you'll find it bloody addictive.
