How Animal Crossing’s creepy sheep came to life ⊟
The minds behind Animal Crossing: New Leaf gave a wonderful presentation at the Game Developers Conference about how creating a diverse team — nearly half of the group, led by co-director Aya Kyogoku, were women — helped produce a super successful title with broad appeal. Nintendo has sold over 7.3 million copies, and around 18% of 3DS owners bought the game.
Along with promoting diversity in its team, the group encouraged all of its members to submit their ideas for what to include in New Leaf. That’s why some of the concept images for characters here looks like straight-up DeviantArt uploads. Shout-outs to that corner piece for the sectional sofa, though — that joint changed the game, for real. No shout-outs to Pietro, the terrifying clown sheep. Get out of here, man.

Animal Crossing Club Nintendo posters being replaced ⊟
Nintendo is reprinting its Club Nintendo Animal Crossing New Leaf poster, because of misidentified characters all over it. I was going to list the incorrectly named animals, but apparently it’s a lot of them and it’s hella complicated! Poor Tutu :(
Anyway, if you have one of these, you’ll be getting a new one soon free of charge, and it’s up to you to decide whether you want to send your old pal JC the new one or the old one. What? Who said that?
Thanks for pointing this out, Alex!
Dig up Animal Crossing cushions ⊟
Not sure why anyone would want a pitfall, but I’m so down with the Animal Crossing: New Leaf fossil cushion. It has Blathers and Celeste on the other side, while the pitfall has Isabelle and whatever her brother’s name is, I forget. The one who just stands outside in a raincoat and stares at you.
NCSX has these great cushions shipping in June, for $20.90.
Pokemon XY, ACNL's stages in Smash 3DS ⊟
Neat, it’s Lumiose City! Hopefully this is the post-patch version. I’m not sure if this is a 3DS-exclusive stage for the new Smash Bros., but the game’s director Masahiro Sakurai did provide this comment on the level: “The Prism Tower rises above Lumiose City. Up until a few seconds ago, the fighters were brawling on top of that tower.”
This Animal Crossing: New Leaf stage, though, is 3DS-only (the Wii U version has City Folk's Smashville). Sakurai offered these details on Tortimer Island: “On this stage, fighters are randomly placed on a different island layout every time they visit.” Hopefully they cleared all the wharf roaches.
Animal Crossing 3DS XL pouches on Club Nintendo ⊟
You can get either a Light Blue or a Pink Animal Crossing-themed 3DS XL pouch from Club Nintendo for 500 Coins. That’s a lot of points. Not as much as the Super Mario Accessory Box, though, which will set you back 700 U.S. Coins.
Or you can spend your coins to buy Kid Icarus of Myths and Monsters (Game Boy), Number Battle (DSiWare), Yoshi (NES), or Bonsai Barber (WiiWare) from the eShop. That last game is a really strange but curious release developed by Zoonami and Martin Hollis — you know, the director behind Rare’s GoldenEye 007 and Perfect Dark!

Animal Crossing necklace and more ⊟
This Leaf Necklace from Fangamer is like wearing any piece of furniture on your person. What is it? Is it a daruma? A balloon TV? A neutral corner?
While you’re at Fangamer, don’t forget to cop a Tiny Cartridge sticker pack — that Kissing Party sticker should would be great to give a cutie on Valentine’s Day.
You need Animal Crossing socks ⊟
You might not have known that your life was desperately missing socks with an Animal Crossing grass pattern, but well, that’s a service we provide. If you want to correct this problem and start living your life right, head to Fangamer.
Wearing these, I imagine, is like walking on the soft grass in your town, all the time.
Hand-painted by Etsy seller Derilyn, this vegan leather case emulates the look of the Animal Crossing: New Leaf 3DS XL, while holding up to eight tiny carts! The version shown is for the 3DS, but she makes them to order for 3DS XL, PS Vita, and 2DS as well!
Happy New Year, Isab- ⊟
Don’t forget to drop into your Animal Crossing: New Leaf town tonight and pick up your Sparkling Cider from Isabelle. Credit to Birthday Town for the pic.
Are you going to count down the new year with Crazy Redd and the gang? Who are you hoping to kiss when the clock strikes midnight? Hugh? Or Lloid if you’re lucky?! Maybe even sneak a smooch from Reese when Cyrus isn’t looking?
Merry Christmas from Tiny Cartridge! ⊟
Since no Christmas morning is complete without someone giving you clothes you didn’t ask for, here’s a special Animal Crossing: New Leaf tee designed by Das Fuzzlez. And here are two other Tiny Cartridge shirts, and an ugly Christmas sweater, for good measure. Joys be thine.
How’s your Christmas going? What were your standout gifts?
