The announcement of Animal Crossing: City Folk was probably one of the most welcomed news at Nintendo's primarily criticized press conference. There were a few whispered rumors here and there that it would make an appearance at E3, and lo and behold, it played a prominent role in the press conference.
Animal Crossing: City Folk is the first in the series to appear on the Wii. Much like its predecessors, the storyline merely adds a ghost of a structure to the game's open-ended gameplay. You get a house, fill it with furniture, make friends, earn money for furniture and clothes, and engage in various hobbies like fishing. The latest addition to the game world is a city area where you can shop at trendy clothing stores and the like.
