Animal Crossing: Wild World for DS, the handheld sequel to the popular GameCube game, is a true Nintendo original. Move into a living, breathing world inside your Nintendo DS and then invite your friends to visit from anywhere on earth.

The game concept is so simple and addictive, it could only have been developed by Nintendo. You move into a village and just live life, extend a home, interact with your neighbours and explore the village. It’s pure escapism and it’s simply wonderful.

Days and seasons pass in real-time and you can basically do what you like. You might want to go fishing, go shopping for a nice hat or one of the other 1,500 items you can buy or just chew the fat with some of the other crazy characters in your village. It’s the Little Computer People concept taken to the 'nth degree.

Manage items and navigate the world around you using the touch screen. You also use the intuitive touch screen control to type letters, draw designs for clothing or wallpaper, drag clothing or items onto characters, and interact with other characters.

Speaking of the other characters, much of the cast of the original Animal Crossing returns, including animals of all shapes and personality types: K.K. Slider, Tom Nook, Blathers, Mr. Resetti and more. There are also a number of new characters, and also new is the fact that all your neighbours have hobbies, so helping them collect fish, bugs or other things will soon be taking up a LOT of your time!

You and up to three friends can hang out in the same village and interact in real time through wireless LAN or your Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. With Animal Crossing: Wild World, you can now visit a friend's village from thousands of miles away, which really is an astounding development in online community gameplay.

After you visit another town, one of the characters in the town you visited might move to their town, or a character from your town might move to the town you visited. You might also find some 'bottle mail' washed ashore, which is simply a bottle containing a letter written by someone in another town. Or you could see constellations created by someone visiting your town in the night sky. ACWW really is a magical gaming experience.
