Yay, Animal Crossing is back! It has always seemed like a perfect fit for the Wii, and at their E3 press conference yesterday, Nintendo unveiled the new game, subtitled City Folk, and announced an intended release date of Holiday 2008.

As has become the series' trademark, days and seasons pass in real time. Fireflies will appear in summer, you'll go trick or treating on Halloween and search for eggs on Bunny Day. The major new addition to the game comes in the titular city, which you can bus to whenever you want. There you'll be able to watch a show at the theatre, check out Gracie's boutique clothing store and get a makeover (including a Mii mask!).

Four people locally can live together in the town, designing clothes and patterns, writing letters and posting messages on the bulletin board for each other. You can even send messages to real world mobile phones and email addresses. Best yet, they've picked up the DS version's online play. Using the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, you can invite three friends over to hang out, and chat with the WiiSpeak microphone (check the pics out below).

We have a stack of media for you. There's the logo (because nothing says 'carefully designed logo' like the Capitals font), a trailer, a slew of screenshots, character art, and a few pics of the WiiSpeak microphone. We're so good to you.
