Nintendo confirms Animal Crossing: City Folk

Nintendo’s first big announcement this morning was exciting, albeit somewhat expected; a new Animal Crossing is coming to Wii.

Animal Crossing: City Folk will ship this holiday season with the new WiiSpeak peripheral, a “community microphone” focused on making online voice chat a group affair.

According to Nintendo’s E3 footage, WiiSpeak is placed atop the Wii sensor bar and, unlike a headset, captures the voices of several individual Wii players at once.

Infendo will have more details as they are announced.
