Like a blast pattern from a shotgun, Nintendo have been pelting us with all kinds of news-related goodies lately. From the fresh DLC packs for New Super Mario Bros. 2, to the aesthetically appealing arsenal of new 3DS LL models, this is only the start of what's to follow in the coming months.

The newest installment of Animal Crossing for the 3DS, Animal Crossing: Jump Out (とびだせどうぶつの森 Tobidase Dōbutsu no Mori), is scheduled to be released in Japan on Thursday, November 8th, 2012. Yet to be officially titled for regions outside of Japan, Animal Crossing 3DS will be released in North America and Europe prior to July of 2013. Let's hope no Pitfall Seeds are involved with that date. Nintendo have been withholding a lot of information about this game. Finally, with just over a month away from being released in Japan, Nintendo of Japan will stream a LIVE Nintendo Direct specifically for Animal Crossing: Jump Out on October 5th at 8PM JST (Japan Standard Time).

Although this Nintendo Direct will be presented in Japanese, by Iwata-san, we'll do our best to make sure information is presented to you as quickly as possible. Besides, even if you don't understand the Japanese language, pictures are truly worth a thousand words.

You can tune in at:
Direct Animal Crossing Tobidaseru 2012.10.5 | Nintendo

If you reside outside of Japan, here is a listing of coinciding time zones.
  • 7AM EST (Eastern Standard Time)
  • 4AM PST (Pacific Standard Time)
  • 12PM BST (British Summer Time)
  • 11AM GMT (Greenwich Mean Time)

I cant wait for the game so this nintendo direct will have to do for now lol.
I have been patiently awaiting this new Animal Crossing game, ever since I caught whiff of it months back! I have been a full fledged supporter of the animal crossing series since I got the Game Cube version for Christmas all those years back!

<3
I'm going to pass on watching. There are way too many spoilers for the game out already. At this point, all I was is a release date.
This is PERFECT! I have to start work early tomorrow (7am EST) so I'll be able to watch this from the beginning! Excitement!

Yeah it is pretty young considering all the other Nintendo franchises. Though it has ever lasting appeal.

Yeah they sure are going all out. I think it was needed as some people were upset that the Wii game had hardly no differences to the previous installments. I just hope they keep the screen shot feature. I would love to share some of my adventures on swapnote or the computer if my images saved to the SD card.

No, I owned the DS version as soon as it came out. Same with the wii version. I wouldn't have missed either of them for the world!!!

Yeah I had both. I no longer own the Wii version. I should have kept it though. Lesson learned.
