You may or may not have heard already, but there’s a New Nintendo 3DS model coming to Japan in October. If you’re wondering why I capitalized New… it’s because that’s exactly what it’s called. Anyhow, one of the exciting new features of the model is the ability to swap out the top and bottom cover plates with new styles.

If you’ve been paying any attention to E3 this past week, you’ve probably heard of Nintendo’s new IP for Wii U titled Splatoon, just announced on Tuesday. According to an interview published by Mashable today speaking with EAD manager Shigeru Miyamoto, about 10 core members from the Animal Crossing team were pulled away to work on Splatoon.

He went on to explain that Splatoon is primarily being developed by younger staff at Nintendo, including from the Animal Crossing team. Additionally, the game is being directed by one of Nintendo Land’s directors.

Does this change your opinion on the game at all? Personally, it makes a lot of sense now considering how silly of a game Splatoon seems to be, similarly to Animal Crossing. Do you guys think this could delay development of the next Animal Crossing title? Discuss in the comments below!

Check out a brand new video interview on Nintendo Minute with Animal Crossing: New Leaf’s producer Katsuya Eguchi and director Aya Kyogoku.

Looks like Nintendo made some printing errors on the new Animal Crossing: New Leaf 2-Poster Set from Club Nintendo recently. A number of villagers listed on one of the posters included in the set are incorrectly labeled with either a typo of the name, or a name belonging to a completely different villager. One or two errors wouldn’t be a big deal but there are reportedly about 12 name errors.

Thankfully, if you happened to order these posters previously, Nintendo is shipping out free replacements soon fixing the errors. They’ve got you covered!
