Animal Crossing heads down the MMO route

Ben Parfitt
The latest issue of Future’s Edge magazine has the scoop on the confirmation that the upcoming Wii iteration of popular franchise Animal Crossing is to be a fully-blown massively multiplayer online experience, CVG reports.

The mag reads: "A Japanese source has confirmed to Edge that the upcoming Wii iteration of Animal Crossing is set to be a social networking MMO."

Animal Crossing has always been a socially-driven game. The GameCube iteration relied on the use of codes for players to exchange information and gifts, whilst the DS sequel went one stage further by allowing wi-fi users a more direct form of contact.

Though no official confirmation has yet been made, the MMO game structure is a logical progression for the series and one that could see it achieve even greater heights than its predecessors.
