In an interview, Katsuya Eguchi of Nintendo has said the company has ”already started thinking about what to do next” in terms of the Animal Crossing series.
But it doesn’t sound like they’re too far along…
Here’s the full quote:
We have already started thinking about what to do next, but there is no concrete direction yet. First, we need to decide which hardware to develop a new Animal Crossing for, and then we want to use that hardware and find out what it’s capable of and what kind of features it provides. Then we can start thinking of elements of Animal Crossing and how we can realise them using the hardware. So until we discover these new inventions, we will not decide the direction.
At least their thinking caps are on though. Maybe we’ll even start to see a tease for a new title out of next year’s E3.
