Animal Crossing: Nintendo's Biggest But Most Low Profile Game

Earlier this year, Nintendo announced that they were bringing two game franchises of theirs to the mobile app platform, one of which was The Legend of Zelda, and the other, a less hyped-up game called Animal Crossing. This announcement sent the gaming community into a frenzy, with most of the gaming media getting very excited about Zelda, and with Animal Crossing getting only a passing mention.

Animal Crossing however, does have a dedicated fan base and has been released for platforms like the Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo DS, Wii and GameCube. The game is a community simulator where you play a semi-animal character living in a village. There are plenty of things to do and the cute animation has made this game hugely popular.

Unknown to many though, Animal Crossing is actually the best-selling game for each of the consoles or platforms they've been released, even outselling the Legend of Zelda Games. Thus far four games have been released including the original Animal Crossing for GameCube, Animal Crossing: Wild World, City Folk and New Leaf.

Wild World has actually sold 11.75 million copies, yet very little steam has been generated around these games, which is another reason to be curious. 

Now there's even more reason to wait with bated breath for this game to reach us via the mobile game platform; to see why everyone is downloading and playing this deceptively sweet and simple game and what the mysterious pull is all about.
