Wait... What?? Surprised

I wonder what kind of plot they have in mind...

This doesn't really suprise me, since Nintendo decided to enter the anime market we'll probably see more of their series being made into either movies or series some time in the future...

How will you know that the movie ends? Cool

This seems incredibly absurd, even though I've never played the game. What could the subject matter possibly be?

A question I've always wondered is: What exactly is ANN's Business Model?

Kekeke. I contributed this news. Cool

I expect it to be a children's movie. I could imagine something like that, what with the animals and all, and I can see the art being very similar to the game, a la Viewtiful Joe, since the graphics are rather simple. I don't expect the movie to be something aimed at teens and up, but you never know. It could be some ultra-violent killing rampage or something...

I'll just quote myself from the previous thread since this one seems to be more active.

I can see it now...

Tom Nook is the main villain. He takes advantage of poor, naive children trying to find a place to live by charging ridiculous overpriced house payments. More battles ensue as the children have to deal with angry neighbors, bug catching, furniture collecting, and listening to a dog with huge eyebrows playing a guitar and singing songs that only consist of words like "oh" and "me".

I don't see this working as a movie for some reason.

Animal Crossing is so wacky that I think it'd make a great anime. Heehee, I look forward to this one~

...That has what to do with Animal Crossing?

I love Animal Crossing, but...a movie? I'm not sure...wouldn't that be a little...boring?

..I mean, maybe it could work. If they did a sort of...My Neighbors The Yamadas or My Neighbor Totoro style, maybe they could pull it off. Though, it seems a little...odd.

But hey, I won't completely judge it until reviews start coming in...

I can just hear what people will be saying as they leave the theatre, "Man, did you see the way he bought that chair? Awesome."

This was one of the last games I was thinking was going to become an anime, but I really don't know what to think. I'm curious as to how it's going to be done, but I would definitely have to agree with Josh7289, I also expect it to be a children's movie.

If the Japanese can make a 500-something long anime series about a talking hamster, they can make anything.

It'll probably be a slice of life Anime, over a super cutesy thing. It'll probably be about a kid throwing away everything they have to move to a town and live in the "scary" real world. It may even have a romantic thing with a girl character.

But that's what I think it'll be about because that's what AC's about... well maybe not so much the romance
