Hoping for a wiiU almost-simultaneous release

I mean, why not?

(and yeah, its not going to happen)
I kinda hope that doesn't happen. Animal Crossing fits handhelds perfectly, and I don't want to feel like I'm getting a gimped version on the 3DS.

I just want them to announce the 3DSXL bundle for the west. That thing is gorgeous.

Ah, but imagine playing animal crossing WiiU with a friend: same city, two players at the same time, one on the tv the other one on the gamepad...

That´s why i really want Animal Crossing WiiU as faster as possible. And since this 3DS version looks so good, maybe it could work on the WiiU. I mean, City folk is just wild world with better shortcuts for equipment (REALLY hope they apply this to AC3ds)

- Don't have to go back to mayor's office once building is placed.
- Can donate yourself.

One thing i love about animal crossing is that you get used to the game, you play everyday. And then if something different happens is WHOA DID YOU SEE THAT? SOMETHING DIFFERENT!

..which, i imagine, leads to children in school making up stuff about the game. Just like when i was young and there were always a kid in school or the cousin of your cousin who said he got to see the "ending" of Pitfall on atari...

Custom museum rooms is awesome. Now you can display items without wasting room in your house or making a secondary file.

I don't think it's a gyroid section, it's just a section where you can make your own exhibits.
