Animal Crossing 3DS was showcased during the Japanese broadcast of Nintendo Direct tonight. I wish I understood Japanese or knew much of anything about Animal Crossing, because I'm virtually useless on this subject!
All I was able to pick up was that new characters will arrive in your town via Street Pass. Help us out; if you notice any exciting new details post a comment.
Check out a recording of the UStream broadcast below. Thanks to Neo user Gotenks for finding this and posting it in our forums.
