Last June saw Nintendo launch Animal Crossing: New Leaf on the Nintendo 3DS and has since been met with strong reception. While it may not be anywhere near as interesting as playing the actual game, Nintendo have decided that the Wii U should not be left out completely – and chosen to launch Animal Crossing Plaza on the platform.
The service which is to run through until the end of 2014 allows Animal Crossing fans from around the world to meet, interact and exchange information through the Animal Crossing Miiverse community.
Players can import images they took in Animal Crossing: New Leaf on Nintendo 3DS as well as custom design QR Code patterns from their SD Cards and organize them into albums. Players also can post messages to Miiverse with those images. The QR Code patterns posted can also be directly scanned and used in Animal Crossing: New Leaf.
Players can select their favourite animals in the Animal Crossing Plaza to post about those specific animals or view posts only about them. If players want to see more posts, they can jump directly to the Animal Crossing series Miiverse community from Animal Crossing Plaza.
