Animal Crossing dated, renamed for Europe

Nintendo has announced the Wii version of Animal Crossing will release in Europe this December.

The company has also given the game a fresh new European subtitle; the North American “City Folk” tag has been dropped in favor of “Let’s Go to the City” for Europe.

Animal Crossing: Let’s Go to the City will release in Europe less than one month after reaching North American retail under the moniker Animal Crossing: City Folk.

Europeans waited two years for the GameCube version of Animal Crossing after its North American release in Sept. 2002.

It didn’t come to Europe until Sept. 2004.
