    Take a trip to Animal Crossing--the real-time life game that's happening every second of every day!

    Move out on your own and get your own place, which you can furnish any way you want. You'll become part of a thriving community, where you'll find the villagers living their own lives. There are plenty of activities to choose from every day in your village, and it's up to you to decide how you'll spend your time. Catch insects, go fishing, help your neighbors or dig up fossils to donate to your local museum. As time ticks by, the seasons change, just like they do in the real world, and your activities in the village will change, too. Catch the Summer Fireworks Festival, compete in the Fall Fishing Tourney, or just kick back and celebrate the holidays with the other villagers.

    Three of your friends can move into their own houses in your village, too. You can trade items with them, exchange letters, arrange scavenger hunts, and even play pranks on them. And if you ever want a change of pace, hop on the train to visit another village by taking your Memory Card to a friend's house.

    You'll find plenty to do in Animal Crossing, so it's a good idea to check in regularly. THere's always something happening!

    Enjoy additional features by connecting to Game Boy Advance!

    Animal Crossing isn't like other videogames. Here you won't find monsters to smite, chasms to leap or even princesses to save - instead, an enchanting woodland setting offers the player a unique gaming experience. You can form friendships with an array of adorable creatures, earn an honest living punting turnips to traders, or else simply spend time goofing off playing on a home video game system.

    There are dozens of characters to interact with, along with a plethora of strangely beguiling activities to entertain you; from fishing to digging for buried treasure, sending letters to friends to fixing up your house, play Animal Crossing and you may find it tough coming back to the real world.

    Cross over to a world that thrives 24-7 on GCN.

    The ambitious Animal Crossing allows players to interact with a virtual village of animals who are doing something different every minute of every day. With Animal Crossing's 24-hour clock, the game's unique events can be in synch with real time -- as day turns to night in the real world, the sun will also begin to set in the game. Seasons will change and special events will occur in real time, too.

    The dynamic setup will have players coming back every day to carry out their daily routines, build relationships with villagers, celebrate special days, collect furnishings for their homes and just live life in an innovative experience that's a world of its own.

    When you're playing Animal Crossing and link your GCN to the GBA, you'll be able to sail to a special island that appears only when you connect the two systems. Once you've finished scouring the island, you can sail back to the GCN game with all the unique goodies you've found on your voyage. Gamers will also be able to load their personalized character from the Memory Card onto a friend's Animal Crossing game and visit their pal's unique village.
