Free Animal Crossing Plaza out now on Wii U

'I love flowers' -- Nintendo president Satoru Iwata

While it's no Super Mario Bros. 3 on 3DS, darn it, the newly-announced Animal Crossing Plaza is cool in its own right. As demonstrated during this morning's Nintendo Direct, this free app gives series fans a place to congregate on Wii U. Images taken in Animal Crossing: New Leaf can be imported to the Plaza, and custom designs can be easily shared via QR codes.

Interestingly, the app is only going to run through the end of 2014 after which point Nintendo will shut it down. Better go try it out now before you forget, then. In other AC news, exclusive items for New Leaf will be available every two weeks at any Nintendo Zone location. This starts on August 11 with a pumpkin pie. While at a Nintendo Zone, simply head to your in-game post office and ask about a present. How quaint.
