E3: Animal Crossing 3DS Trailer

Water temple confirmed? Uh, probably not.

There used to be an embeded media player here, but it doesn't work anymore. We blame the Tumbeasts.

A long-running industry joke goes a little something like this: “When you make a sequel, your main character learns how to swim”. In this case, it took Nintendo several sequels to teach those fickle Animal Crossing inhabitants how to do it, but the little guys and gals have finally caught on. And as if impersonating Michael Phelps wasn’t enough, the gibberish-spewing Crossians (is that right?) also ape Link right around the one minute mark. They’ve come a long way since looking like freaks of nature in the original game. Don’t give me that look — you know it’s true.
