Animal Crossing: Wild World, known in Japan as Oideyo Dōbutsu no Mori (おいでよ どうぶつの森, lit. "Come to Animal Forest") is a life simulation video game made by Nintendo for the Nintendo DS game console. It belongs to the Animal Crossing series.
Gameplay[change | edit source]
In Animal Crossing: Wild World the player moves into a village where everyone is an animal. Only the player is human. 1-4 people can move to the village and live together in one house (different to Animal Crossing). They have to pay money (called "bells") for the house, and when they did it the house will get bigger. Bells can be earned by fishing, catching insects, selling things and other ways. Every player can buy the things he/she likes by Tom Nook (a racoon who has got a shop in the village) and put them in the house. If the house looks nice, they get points and things from the HRA (Happy Room Academy). They also can buy clothes at Able Sisters. The game is played in real time and has no ending. You can visit the villages of other players by using the Nintendo DS wireless connection or Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. It's almost like the older Animal Crossing GameCube version.
