DescriptionAnimal Crossing: Wild World
is a sandbox game in which players assume the role of a new resident in a town populated and run by animals. Players can interact with townsfolk, write letters, send presents, dig for fossils, fish, and perform other activities. The game also runs in realtime and utilizes the Nintendo DS' internal clock and calender to keep track of special events that occur on certain dates.
New additions in Wild World
include touch screen support and online play. The touch screen gives players finer control when performing certain activities like designing clothes and creating constellations. The other major addition, online play, lets up to four players interact with each other through local wireless or via Internet through Nintendo WiFi. Players can open up their town gates and invite players on their Friends List to visit their town. Visiting players can chat with each other, play games like Hide-and-Go-Seek, or interact with local residents and shops. Other additions to Wild World
include new characters, items, and events.

The Press Says
There are currently no topics for this game.
There is a troubadour called K.K. Slider in the game. He plays a song and then says: "Those industry fat cats try to put a price on my music, but it wants to be free."
Some webloggers derived from this that Nintendo
promotes music piracy or wanted to speak out against the RIAA. The story even got picked up by The New York Times, Slashdot and local TV stations.
In a statement, Nintendo vice-president Perrin Kaplan
said no real social commentary was intended.
"People can read a lot into a little," Ms. Kaplan said, "but musician K.K. Slider - a guitar-playing cartoon dog - is saying only that he's a free spirit who cannot be bought and sold for any amount of money."
Ms. Kaplan also said that K.K. wanted his music to be free in the sense of being "freed from his guitar, free from any constraints." She added, "as a dog, it's understandable that he would not want to deal with any 'fat cats.'"
While at the Able Sisters' store, look at the pattern that Sable is making on the sewing machine. It's likely to be one of tomorrow's shirts!Information also contributed by
