Does anyone know if/when Animal Crossing 2 for the gamecube is coming out?  Any other games out there like this besides the Harvest Moon series?

I think I read somewhere that Animal Crossing 2 will be a Japan-only release incorporating features added to the first Animal Crossing game for its US release.

EA have just announced The Urbz which sounds like it might have something in common with AC.

Animal Crossing was unfortunately one of those quirky games where people either loved it or hated it, like the Harvest Moon games. So, it looks like we won't be getting the sequel. Too bad, actually.

As for The Urbz, it's basically The Sims, just in sequel form. More or less anyway based on what I've read.

I guess I'm hopeful that aspects of Animal Crossing will start showing up in other games. The Urbz will apparently let you stay with your character throughout their day (no disappearing when they go to work) and if they can roam their neighborhood and interact with other perpetual inhabitants then we might be crossing over into Animal Crossing territory...

...no harm in hoping, is there?

there's definately an AC2 coming, it's just a matter of this gen or next. All talk is that they want to extremely expand the gameplay and allow even more interaction and communication between multiple players.

Animal Crossing 2 is definately coming, but I don't think you'll see it this generation.

That is really too bad...I was looking for an excuse to hook the GC back up again.  I don't think I'll be getting all three consoles next generation (plus the PSP) and Nintendo is at the bottom of the list so I may never get to play it.

True, but it sold pretty well in the US if I'm not mistaken so there's always hope smile

andy you realize that upgraded version came out in Japan last year and included all the upgrades in the US version right... really has no bearing on AC2. The japanese version was fairly 'crippled' compared to the US version, hence the updated version, which is something NCL rarely does.

yep, I've just woked that out - now I feel like an idiot.

not an unfamiliar feeling either.

I blame Nintendo for delaying the PAL release of Animal Crossing for about a decade.

A good blame. I mean, WHY did it take them something like a year to translate this game? I mean, come on, converting to the funky  :twisted:  PAL standard isn't all that hard.

I don't think I'd begun the game proper after an hour of play - the initial tasks set by Tom Nook are a bit if a drag.

I had a great time with the first game, as did my wife and kids. eventually the cost of the final house upgrade got too steep and we all drifted on to other things, but I'm considering wiping our village so the kids can start over from scratch in a few months.

I wish an AC2 would come out, but all we are going to get is a weird DS version.  WEIRD!

I think that AC DS will give me everything I wanted from the first AC, and it would be tough to top it.
