Nintendo

The Animal Crossing Anime

Yes folks its true, Wii news over the past couple of days has all but calmed down as the dust settles over the E3 event in Los Angeles. The gaming event revealed nearly all we could wish to know about most of our favourite games and consoles, that are set to appear over the coming year and next. This is bad for those of you looking for all elusive Wii reports, and are waiting for me to reveal what Nintendo's final secret is for the Wii, but it's certainly good for those of us who have truck loads of work to do for educational purposes ;).

Anyhow without further ado, you may have noticed on Monday that a movie version of Nintendo's successful Animal Crossing franchise is going to released in the land of the Rising Sun. You may well be asking why I have only just now decided to report on this, well the reason being is that Japanese gaming publication Famitsu has just released an illustration of what the movie will look like. As you can see the movie appears to take the form of an anime, and is to be produced by Japanese director Jouji Shimura. The movie is bound to be a success in it's home country where the game has managed to sell over 3 million copies. The film its due out this December, though no word as of yet has surfaced of a possible European release date. As always stay tuned to Sickr for more details as soon as they arise.

  1. A movie is an okay idea, but I can see Crossing being a much more successful like…sitcom…or something. A movie may be possible, I just don’t think it’s the right way to go on this one.

  2. But seriously.

    That’s really cute. Those japanese children won’t know what hit them.

  3. Good comment. I could see the whole movie idea being a huge success in Japan much like the Pokemon movie, but I think for Western territorys your right in saying it should be made into a series. I also believe the games ideas would suit the style of a daily/weekly cartoon series rather than a feature length film, due to the games day to day theme.

    Though I also imagine that if the movie does well at the box office it’s more than likely that a cartoon series will see the light of day.. :)

  4. I could see the formular working if of course done right, but it could prove hard to convince western audiences. As I stated before it all depends on how well the movie does.

  5. I think it’s gonna be hard to make a movie about aquiring a lot of stuff, mind you this might be the end of the adoreable animalese they speak in the games

  6. Good point. I’m sure we will all miss that awfully cute animalese language the characters we have grown to love speak in.

  7. But what will the plot be? Watering flowers? Fishing? You get the point. Although it will no doubt prove popular in Japan.

  8. It will be awesome, just like the games. it will be enjoyable and a nice change for ur regular formular of the more traditional anime.

  9. That looks very cute. I myself LOVE animal crossing but I think a movie is going to be a little weird… that doesn’t mean I don’t wanna see it thought.;)
