Nintendo Announces Animal Crossing Costume Contest

This just in from Nintendo…

To get folks fired up for the November 16 release of Animal Crossing: City Folk for the Wii, Nintendo is hosting an outrageous animal costume contest.

Animal lovers can show their creativity by submitting their most creative images of animals dressed in costumes or even as characters from Animal Crossing. The selected top 50 photos in the “Animal Crossing Welcome Waggin’ Costume Contest” will win membership to the Welcome Waggin’ Committee. They will also get a Wii game console, a copy of Animal Crossing: City Folk, a Wii Speak microphone, and more. In my opinion, that’s worth an embarrassing pet photo or two…

Expanding on the popularity of the Animal Crossing series, Animal Crossing: City Folk lets every member of the household partake in the fun of an animal-filled town. Players use the the wiimote controls to customize their own characters and environment. Also, for the first time, players can take their adventure “downtown” to the city, complete with shopping and theater adventures. It’s also the first game to make use of the Wii Speak microphone, a new accessory that we previously wrote about which enables players to use voice chat over a broadband Internet connection.

Daily photo picks and details about the “Animal Crossing Welcome Waggin’ Costume Contest” will be posted at Entries will be accepted Oct. 27 - Nov. 16.
