The video presentation will occur on Wednesday, October 25 at 12PM JST (3AM GMT, 11PM EST on the 24th) and be about 15 minutes long. You can watch the US, UK or Japanese presentations at the links.

Are you excited for the Animal Crossing franchise to come to iOS and Android? Think it will still be the same life simulator we’ve come to love?

  • Sounds cool

  • Oh my god, where is everyone?

  • The excitement I felt seeing “Animal Crossing Direct” and the the crushing sadness I felt when it said it won’t be talking about the Switch game…

    • I’m just happy they’re finally talking about the mobile game

  • Lazy terror

    Uh, they finally acknowledge the mobile game they announced back then, I thought it was canceled for a moment :p

    Just hope it’s something as good as the FE one

  • SpooktralSeraph

    “Why do Ultra Beasts like Sun’s UB-02, UB-04 (Buzzwole/Absorbtion and Kartana/Blade respectively), and both version’s UB-05 (Guzzlord/Glutton)’s names sound so contemporary? The first time you encounter them in the Aether lab or post-game missions, they’ll be called ???. Meaning no one actually has a name for them, save for the codename. You being the first one to catch one, you get to give them a name, and that’s what happened. Your teenage player character just named them after their appearance, with their own vocabulary: Buzzwole being a giant muscular mosquito, Kartana a razor sharp origami and a mispelling of katana, and Guzzlord being nothing but mouth. This can be proved as Gladion, being the first and only trainer who made Type:Null evolve, named the evolution no one knew about Silvally.”

    WHAT THE HELL THIS ACTUALLY MAKES SENSE]

    Also the word swole… is the SuMo trainer a memer?

    • Govnah


  • This has me hyped so much!


  • More stuff I’m hyped for (Well, I’m hyped for Dancing Star Night and Dancing Moon Night, but this is Dancing All Night, so close enough)

    • This is catchy as hell too

  • Unseelie Fairy

    What’s an Annie Mall crossing?

  • ShinyXatu

    HOLYCRAPHOLYCRAPHOLYCRAPHOLYCRAPHOLYCRAP

    IT CANT JUST BE MOBILE

    SOMEONE POST ANIMAL CROSSING MUSIC

    • Lazy terror

      Well the page specifically stated that there won’t be any Switch or 3ds stuff being shown, and I don’t think they’d lie like that…..

  • Oh good…
    I have to wait for Sunday for Mario Odyssey to come out

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Final team before the Poni trial & Lusamine battle. Wonderlockes yanno… https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/32b9e93577a30c3c0436c280c3a80cd1c81ca3c6b8265a503765e0bfbd4083dd.png

    • Lazy terror

      Uh that’s a pretty good thing, I thought that in Wwonderlockes you’d only have stuff like Rattatas or Pidgeys :p

      • UnburdenedLegume

        I have a Rattata in the PC, but you’re not required to use everything you get via WT, you can just make your own team. And i’ve had a lot of dupes, whom i can trade off again so its not that bad.

        P.S: Pidgeot is the goat

  • Unseelie Fairy

    Something about wonderlockes you feel

    • No I donnttt

    • SpooktralSeraph

      Not a fan of those
      They’re a tad too easy

    • Lazy terror

      I wanna do oneeee

      Not now tho

  • EarthenWarrior

    NRRGGGHGGHHHH ARRRGHHHHHHHHH
    You can look like retro polygon mario in odahseee

    • Murder Freak

      Say what you’re spoiling, God D*mn It!

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Why censor damn 😕

        • Murder Freak

          I dunno

      • Lazy terror

        It’s for Odyssey but too late i think

    • ShinyXatu

      Please cite what you’re spoiling Earthen. This is an actual warning because I’m upset.

      • Murder Freak

        Kinda same

      • Thanks for deleting it fam.

      • EarthenWarrior

        ……am i just having a stroke or something, i said what i’m spoiling

        • ShinyXatu

          Saying “arrrrrhnfnfhg” doesn’t tell us that Super Mario Odyssey spoilers are hidden under the spoiler. Some people, like me, are specifically trying to avoid spoilers like the one you posted.

          • EarthenWarrior

            ok thank you i was honestly confused and now understand the error of my ways

          • ShinyXatu

            I know you didn’t mean anything by it, I just needed to tell you because I know it upset more people than just me. No biggie 🙂

  • SpooktralSeraph

    *snapping with jazz hands*

  • Unseelie Fairy

    Aiming to write a battle scene for practice by the end of the week, submit forms and the two most interesting will be picked. Single Pokémon with the trainer BTW, might write more than one based on response

    https://goo.gl/forms/TvV4YQKkQM0xpFFp2

    • EarthenWarrior

      dun

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Danke

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Ooh if you don’t mind me asking, how does your trainer hold the Groundium? Is it just in a Z-Ring? Or something else made of the same material?

        • EarthenWarrior

          a Z ring but mine is copper brown

          • Unseelie Fairy

            So looking a bit more like the Poni Z-Ring?

          • EarthenWarrior

            sure wynaut

    • SpooktralSeraph

      ArE legends allowed?

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Ew Michelle no

        • SpooktralSeraph

          So no? Okay

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Was yours… That one ?

          • SpooktralSeraph

            I deleted it before sending

          • Unseelie Fairy

            The Zoroark one? Because I got that one XD

          • EarthenWarrior

            awwwwwww

    • The Spooky Scurry Golurk

      Posted mine

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Danke

    • Submitted mine

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Which one was yours ? ? ?

        • I think it’s obvious based on the Pokémon

          • Unseelie Fairy

            I haven’t gotten anything I think is yours but I did delete two joke ones :0

          • EarthenWarrior

            and which one would that be

          • I thiiiink you deleted mine though.

            It most certainly was not a joke

          • Unseelie Fairy

            What was the name of it?

          • ….
            toad

          • Unseelie Fairy

            I thought that was Govnah D:<

        • EarthenWarrior

          i wanna see some of these

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Will share later maybe, also BTW the Pokémon can use more than four moves so if you want to describe any more moves just resubmit and make it clear it’s yours and just write N/A for the other required fields

          • EarthenWarrior

            aw that’s lame, it should be limited to four

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Nah fam, more than four means a better variety and more interesting strategies

          • EarthenWarrior

            ugh…..fine its your thang, but if i did add another move to mine it would be Drill Run so i can combine it with Megahorn to make it much more powerful

          • Unseelie Fairy

            You don’t have to add more, I can just have it use only those four or improvise based on what I think you’d use

    • SpooktralSeraph

      doneeeeeeee

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Danke

        • SpooktralSeraph

          Shocked ;3?

          • Unseelie Fairy

            More bugged than anything ?

          • SpooktralSeraph

            ;3
            Do ya like it at least?

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Ya, yours Earthens and what I presume is Golurks are all really good

          • SpooktralSeraph

            Yeeeeee
            were you expecting that mon? :3

            I didn’t go overboard with the move count right? If I did feel free to remove dig

          • Unseelie Fairy

            I encourage more moves, better variety

          • SpooktralSeraph

            Ayyy
            I wanted to add Guillotine so bad but OHKO is busted

          • Lazy terror

            Not really, you could apply its poor accuracy to the story so it balances stuff out

          • SpooktralSeraph

            But considering what else the mon does? It literally can hold foes still

          • Unseelie Fairy

            As Kuppo said, inaccuracy or hardness to execute would balance it well

          • SpooktralSeraph

            True but like if the combo was set up, it literally is near impossible to actually land
            It would be a cool af finisher though

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Just make it that it’s hard to pull of, for example long charge up time because it needs enough energy to OHKO

          • SpooktralSeraph

            True true

    • Lazy terror

      What’s this battle scene is about? I’m curious :0

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Just a typical battle between two trainers, it’s pretty much just practice

        • Lazy terror

          Because it’s just two characters, you could show the rest to us, I’m interested to see what you guys have come up with 😛

          • Unseelie Fairy

            I think I’ll end up just writing it as a 1v1 tourney tbh

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Also were you the one with the Breloom?

          • Lazy terror

            I just made mine sooo

          • Unseelie Fairy

            O

            I’ll find out who that one is at some point hopefully ?

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Can everyone who registered put their username beside the character’s name under this comment? Thanks

      • SpooktralSeraph

        SpectralSeraph (Seraph)

      • Not Toad

        • Unseelie Fairy

          ??

      • Lazy terror

        I’m Kuppster and the character name I think it was Flavio

        (yes I don’t remember the name of the character I just wrote)

      • Murder Freak

        Butter

      • Rose

        She’s super unoriginal but whatever

        • Unseelie Fairy

          I liked her :<

      • Umm am I able to edit mine? If not mines Alex with the Aipom (just note… my character is literally me)

        • Lazy terror

          Are those Odyssey or USUM spoilers? ? 😛

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Animal Crossing Switch

          • Lazy terror

            *El gasp*

        • Unseelie Fairy

          I can delete it and you can repost one, but you can’t edit it as far as I know :0

    • Ok I did one for real

      • Unseelie Fairy

        One mention of Toad and I’ll cry ?

        • Unseelie Fairy

          I approve of this

    • Lazy terror

      Finally made mine :0

      It’s something I guess 😛

    • Murder Freak

      Submitted, it’s probably lame tho

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Nah it was good

    • Lazy terror

      Also, I’m kinda bummed that we didn’t get to write about the personality of the characters, I’d have liked doing that x0

  • ShinyXatu

    So, I’m not super happy about the fact that they’re toying with us YET AGAIN and purposely denying any Animal Crossing Switch updates. But progress is being made: this is the first time that Animal Crossing and the Switch have ever been associated in the same sentence in any way. Even if they don’t tell us directly, I’m sure the app will have some indication as to how it will connect to the new full games, unless they specifically remove those features. Also, here’s some Animal Crossing music to celebrate progress: https://youtu.be/tZ3v579wzAo

  • EarthenWarrior

    Ok i need some solid info
    Do you think we will be able to pre-load Mario Odyssey before Friday, I truly can’t find info if i’m gonna have to wait on friday to download and install

    • Yes. It is in the new update…

      • EarthenWarrior

        alright yet I don’t see it on the eshop. now they probably just didn’t add it yet or something is off or i’m just going crazy/being paranoid (again)

        • It’s not really that big a deal if you can’t pre load it.
          Just go to bed, wake up and download it while you eat breakfast

          • EarthenWarrior

            But i wanna play it at midniiiiight

          • You’re goona be sleepy

          • EarthenWarrior

            nuhuh no way i’m a big boy and i don’t need sleep

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Since preloads are starting for USUM like two weeks before they launch I wouldn’t be surprised if Odyssey will be preloadable before then

  • NicoLito

    Animal Crossing is my life. They better not ruin it :/

    • Monkeyfuzz

      You can still play the old ones so you’ll be fine.

      • NicoLito

        Excuse you? I’m not gonna replay those games. That’s like replaying life. Besides, I love it.

  • EarthenWarrior

    finally managed to hit 1.3k in Monotype after a year of not monoing (SM really made it hard for Ground to thrive)

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Shiny Silvally distribution for USA/Australia has begun. You can get a code at Gamestop (US) or EBGames (AUS/NZ)

  • ShinyXatu

    I found this old Wild World trailer from France, it’s pretty cool: https://youtu.be/jevIt5Brp_4

    Thinking about it more, I think that they must have decided to save Animal Crossing Switch for a big Direct (or event) in December/January. Because otherwise, I feel like they wouldn’t have been so strict about the wording in this Direct. They know people are expecting it.

  • Ooh, there’s a chance of Samba De Amigo coming to the Switch

    • Well, to specify, the creator think it’s a perfect fit and really wants it to happen

  • ShinyXatu

    Just as a formal statement about the deleted posts down there: from now on, nobody should be posting Super Mario Odyssey spoilers here unless they’re very clearly marked and tagged. I’d say this should go for post-release as well, maybe the first week or two. I’ve been trying to avoid all spoilers (which I’ve pretty much done up to this point) and I don’t want that to change, and I know others are the same way. I don’t think this will be a problem but just know that I’ll likely swoop down on you like a hawk if you do this……….

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Just out of curiosity, will this also count for USUM post release? Just gauging whether I should take a short leave after release or not :0

      • ShinyXatu

        That’s a good question. Yeah I’d say so, I remember being kinda pissed off about seeing the Lusamine + Nihilego fusion so things like that should be kept secret also.

        • SpooktralSeraph

          So as long as a i literally say its a spoiler and spoiler tag it its fine??

          • ShinyXatu

            Yeah right, just say “USUM SPOILERS” or “ODYSSEY SPOILERS” and then you know what you’re signing up for!

        • Unseelie Fairy

          Would stuff like what Pokémon important characters have and unrevealed forms be spoilers as well? :0

          • ShinyXatu

            Hmmm I guess only prerelease, but that’s usually not as big of a deal around here. Leak season is always kind of a tradition, I don’t really want to get in the way of that. But if you think it’s super important than spoiler tag it!

    • Dazzling Fireworks

      How do you tag spoilers?

      • Unseelie Fairy

        but with regular ‘o’s. Text you want to tag goes inbetween

        • Dazzling Fireworks

          Thanks so much!!!


  • Also, this makes me wanna play the games

  • Hey I’m having a good day! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8c6621a2f20c0bee155c9ffc6a4454f0ec68458ba2ea118e342c3b79333d6264.png https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/444e0456c0f5fc64b151d55d57e6f83e8ed2d96f8580bcec33cd7edd01a31f01.png

    And I caught Sableye. So I only need a Banette to complete the set (also both of these were evolved not caught)

  • SpooktralSeraph

    ODESSEY SPOILERS
    the final boss… I mean… can’t say I didn’t see it coming… it’s cool as hell regardless

  • Monkeyfuzz

    1630 SRs so far for Shiny Uxie, I think it’s time to complain about not getting it yet, again. WWWAAAAA! WHY WON’T IT LOVE ME! *insert Earthen rage noise here*.

  • SpooktralSeraph

    Note: If I stumble on a Cia file of USUM and am able to play it like I did for the original SuMo, I’m only going to play until I finish Melemele

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      You were awle to get the game early? How was that? I didn’t think the CIA got out with enough time to actually matter

      • SpooktralSeraph

        Oh I got it literally the day after everything leaked. I had the game exactly 9 days in advance and got up to the Wishiwashi trial

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Oh wow. Without spoilers if you end up getting USUM I’d like to hear your early opinions.

          • SpooktralSeraph

            Yeee

  • Murder Freak

    MY NETFLIX JUST GOT SUPERGIRL SEASON 3!!! YYYYYYEEEEEEEESSSSSS!!!!

  • I found the perfect reaction for me to things I don’t agree with (In spoiler tags as the image contains foul language word) so read at your own risk

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/924eb5d54aac7c9c07546d32bf2831471b1414e5b696d33b240711eb25c9c189.png

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Stop posting Odyssey spoilers smh the game is literally 4 days away. You people are awful

    • ShinyXatu

      Hey, just be thankful that they’re being censored now. People are getting it out of their system…

    • SpooktralSeraph

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Then minimise them smg

  • MenacingCascoon

    Well we have our first loser!

      HOLY POOP ON A PLATTER I DIDNT KNOW THEY COME WITH GOLD BOTTLE CAPS

  • I feel like I change my profile picture way too often

  • Unseelie Fairy
    • MenacingCascoon

      Wait what’s this for?

      • Unseelie Fairy

        A writing thing I’m doing, it’s just for writing practice

        • MenacingCascoon

          So it’s like a roleplaying thing? I understand. You need to charge your phone btw

    • EarthenWarrior

      Hmmmmm Seraph’s Vikavolt could mean trouble if it’s packing Energy Ball

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Both are packing whatever is needed for the plot XD

        • EarthenWarrior

          Alright I better at least make it a couple of rounds, I’m a valuable antagonistic character

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Even if you don’t last long it’ll be a fight to remember

            And there won’t be much characterization, it’s mostly for my battle writing skills

          • MenacingCascoon

            Make sure you combine the stories from both sides, and post them here. I want to read it.

          • Unseelie Fairy

            It’ll be nothing really good, it’ll pretty much just be jumping between battles because that’s the main focus :0

            Hopefully the battles will be well written enough, I’m sure I can make something half decent :0

    • Govnah

      I am best announcer

    • Lazy terror

      The Lopunny is gonna mega evolve and merciless beat down my Floatzel T-T

    • I’d like to see you do one of these again sometime. Probably saying that because I was late in submitting, but still, this is really cool

    • SpooktralSeraph

      Well I lose first round cause lol type advantage

      • I wish I would’ve done this earlier, it looks cool

      • SpooktralSeraph

        Yo Fairy, I need that Guillotine plz

      • Lazy terror

        This is a fanfic, I doubt he’ll make the advantage thing too important for balancing sake

    • Murder Freak

      Who’s Valentine?

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Not a clue ?

    • SpooktralSeraph

      When will we hear the results? :3

      • Unseelie Fairy

        When I’m done writing all the matches soooo probably in sixty years

  • MenacingCascoon

    Animal Crossing Direct. Too bad I don’t play those types of games. Super Booooooring. I want some fighting!
    Anyway I wonder how mobile animal crossing will be like. I can definitely see it going well on mobile. Does anyone here have any opinions on Animal Crossing from mobile that actually plays AC?
    (Dont forget to vote https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1V-V_edp-qpKl7CAwSPZHXx31PPqkIRMruql1Vvn-9bg/edit )

  • Unseelie Fairy

    New shiny article my peeps

  • Hayley Waalen

    I want the game to have a Match 3 vibe with collecting characters
