E3 2008: Animal Crossing Wii Announced, Includes WiiSpeak

At last night’s Nintendo E3 Press Conference, Nintendo announced that Animal Crossing for the Wii was coming before Christmas called Animal Crossing: City Folk. The first gameplay footage of it was shown off alongside the creator of Animal Crossing, Katsuya Eguchi.

Also shown for the very first time was something called WiiSpeak. WiiSpeak looks a bit like a re-vised Motion Sensor bar for the Wii but is actually a microphone which will be included with Animal Crossing: City Folk and is infact the first game to include Voice Chat for any Wii game.

Animal Crossing: City Folk is coming to the Nintendo Wii from this Christmas.
