Sequel to Animal Crossing, known as Doubutsu no Mori in Japan. Since Animal Crossing was an enhanced version of the Japanese release, Nintendo Co, Ltd. released a follow-up in Japan, known as Doubutsu no Mori + (listed separately under this title). Animal Crossing 2 was announced in an interview with a Japanese magazine and is thought to be a true sequel to the communication adventure. Whether the game will truly make it out on GameCube is currently unknown. It may just get canned and moved to the system's successor.
