UK NOM staffer Tom East has claimed on his blog that Animal Crossing Wii will definitely be shown in Nintendo’s E3 press conference next Tuesday.
“Those of you who have read the new issue of Official Nintendo Magazine should already know that Animal Crossing Wii will be unveiled at the conference,” he said.
It was reported last week that the magazine was carrying a back page that appeared to heavily indicate the game was revealed at the show.
Nintendo Japan’s going to be well pleased with you, kids.

According to this GoNintendo article, the next issue of Nintendo Official Magazine in the UK is carrying a piece of Animal Crossing art on its back page with some text suggesting we may be about to see another title from the franchise.
“It’s been a while! It’s time to revisit an old friend. How’s your village doing these days?”
Animal Crossing Wii for E3, then.

Poor old magazines. There really is no keeping the good bits off the internet, is there? Hit this for the UK Nintendo Official Magazine’s review of Mario Kart Wii, the first in the world. The cartoon racer gets 94 percent. Apparently it’s a “strong contender for the best Mario Kart ever”. Also, on the subject of the Wii Wheel: “Turning is simply a matter of turning the wheel.” Nice. One piece of information in the piece that may interest you is that snaking’s been removed completely. Important stuff.
Go ahead and read it so you don’t have to give Future any money. Mario Kart Wii launches in Europe on April 11 and the US on April 27.
