Rumor of the morning: One of the first-to-be-announced titles for Nintendo's 3D handheld the Nintendo 3DS will be a version of classic game Animal Crossing to be a launch title for the system. Word is, Nintendo's been showing off the title to developers as a proof of concept for the 3DS.
This seems like a pretty safe bet. The Animal Crossing franchise sells no matter what, and a quicky port to the new device seems likely to spur interest. Animal Crossing is the perfect title for the 3DS-- If you want to spend all day looking into a a little world, why not have it be in 3D? -- but let's hope Nintendo does something truly innovative and interesting with the title. That series has been coasting for a long time, and a couple new bells and whistles isn't enough... now a full-on 3D re-vamped, that would be awesome.
