I'm not a big fan of the F2P stuff, but I'm liking that little snippet of Project Treasure. Scavening for riches inside old pyramids, finding hidden passageways and slicing ghouls? I could totally get into that. Maybe. I'll be keeping an eye on that game in the hopes that it's good.
Perhaps what we're missing is that this game will connect to the (hopefully to be announced at E3) Animal Crossing for Wii U and that a retail version will make it more accessible or something. Maybe Hisashi Nogami's response in an Engadget Splatoon interview is a hint? Probably not, but hope is hope.
Engadget: So my very last question then is: When are we going to see Animal Crossing on Wii U?
Hisashi Nogami: Well, that's difficult for me to answer at the moment! Yup. That's pretty much all we can say.
What I will say is that you may have seen an announcement recently about an Animal Crossing product coming out on the 3DS... I can tack that on to the end of my response.
