It has been a while.
The scan above from UK's Official Nintendo Magazine for their E3 special next month suggests that a brand spanking new Animal Crossing game for the Wii will be unveiled during the convention. The last game, Animal Crossing: Wild World, was released in 2005 for the DS, while the original Animal Crossing was released back in 2002.
So fans, set up your clocks and pray that this is true. And definitely, most definitely check out our uber E3 coverage starting July 14.
