Animal Crossing Wild World


Move into a living, breathing world inside the Nintendo DS...and then invite yo­ur friends to visit from anywhere on earth using the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.

Make your own stories. You and up to three friends move into a village and just live life, extend a home, interact with yourneighbors, go shopping and explore the village.

Move into a town, buy a house and then do whatever you want. Time and seasons pass as they do in the real world, so there will always be something unpredictable happening. Collect or buy more than 1,500 items, talk to neighbors, go fishing, catch bugs, dig up treasure or hang out with human friends.

In this sequel to the wildly popular Nintendo GameCube game, you and up to three friends can hang out in the same village and interact in real time - either through wireless LAN or over Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Now you can visit a friend's village from thousands of miles away.

The touch screen makes item management and world navigation a breeze. Typing letters and designing patterns are now just stylus strokes away.

Days and seasons pass in real time, so whether players want to decorate their homes, catch bugs or fish, collect brand-new items like hats and sunglasses or just chat with the wild and wacky characters in their villages, there's always something to do.

Much of the cast of the original Animal Crossing returns, including animals of all shapes and personality types: K.K. Slider, Tom Nook, Blathers, Mr. Resetti and more. There are also a number of new characters.  New to this game is the fact that all the neighbors have hobbies, so helping them collect fish, bugs or other things will become a fun pastime.


Tap the touch screen to type letters, use items, draw designs for clothing or wallpaper, drag clothing or items onto characters, interact with characters or objects or just lead them around the world. You can hang out in real time with up to three friends by connecting locally or by using Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. You can also can put your DS into Sleep Mode and it will trade messages with nearby Animal Crossing: Wild World players






Wireless Communication:
DS Local Area Network
When players are within wireless range of other people who have Animal Crossing: Wild World, they can travel to one other's towns. One person will be the host and open up his or her town gate to visitors. Up to three others within range can exit their town gates to travel to the host's town, where they can do all sorts of things: fish, write letters to townsfolk, shop at the store, cut down trees, anything. Up to four players can interact in real time, communicating with text messages and emoticons. (All players must have game cards for multiplayer mode.)






After players visit another town, the following events may take place.

  • One of the characters in the town they visited might move to their town, and a character from their town might move to the town they visited.
  • Bottle mail,” a bottle containing a letter written by someone in another town, might wash ashore in their town.
  • Constellations created by someone visiting their town might appear in the night sky.
  • This mode is open to anyone in Local Wireless range – there is no need for people to pre-register on friend rosters.

Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection

Wireless multiplayer mode plays the same as the DS Local Area Network multiplayer, except that players connect using Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Players must know one another and register one another to their friend roster before they can connect. For example, if player A plans to visit player B's town, both player A and B need to register each other's names. The friend roster window is accessible anytime during the game. There are two ways to register names to the friend roster:

  • Register using DS Local Area Network mode. When players visit another town, they can register the host and other visitors to their friend roster, and others in the town can register them to their lists as well. Players also can register anyone who visits their town, and visitors also can register players in the towns they visit. It's very easy to register friends. Players simply tap the friend roster icon, then tap the names of the people they want to register – they'll instantly be added to the friend roster.
  • Players can register the Friend Registration Key, or password, of a person they want to play with. Players receive Friend Registration Keys when they register their games with Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. They can then exchange friend codes with others by phone/e-mail/online bulletin boards and use them to add their friends to their lists.
