Shut up and take my Bells!
We've been teased about the newest installment of Animal Crossing for what seems to be a lifetime. Watching short videos, seeing memorizing screenshots and just hearing everyone talk about it has nearly pushed us to the brink of insanity. We already know that it's going to be available in both retail and digital download form, but what else can we expect to see?

In roughly one hour and thirty minutes, Nintendo of Japan will give us forty-seven (8:00PM - 8:47PM JST) gratifying minutes of exclusive coverage for the newest member of the Animal Crossing franchise, Animal Crossing: Jump Out. Check back here during or after the show to get the details as they are translated during the presentation. If you happen to miss anything, we'll be sure to post the entire video, right here, just for you.

Lots of great info revealed in this presentation. I love the concept of photo ID's that you can take and use your emotions to make them even more unique.

KK Slider also being a DJ is AMAZING! I am glad that he has his own stage once again,, though the box art suggests he may visit the big tree from time to time.

There is so much detail in this game. The new flowers, shrubs etc just make the game that much more engrossing. I love the fact that there is an island with a boat and that Tortimer is there! The old mayor may be retired now? That is what I assume. Also it is about time that they added more mini games for when you have friends over!

I could go on and on but I will end saying I LOVED LOVED LOVED how the man redecorated all his furniture with print that looked like the villagers etc. I will be doing that! :)
Pushed us to the brinks of insanity is right LOL
