Sad News From Nintendo
It has hit the news cycle overnight that Nintendo President and CEO, Satoru Iwata, died this past Saturday, July 11, 2015   Mr. Iwata took over as President of the company back in 2002 and spearheaded a resurgence of the company with the Nintendo DS and Wii consoles.  Many Nintendo fans know him from his appearances in Nintendo Direct feeds as well.  No news on a successor to head up Nintendo yet.  We here at ACC certainly salute all Mr. Iwata has done for the Nintendo brand and especially for the continued support of the Animal Crossing series of games and characters which we all hold dear to our hearts.

In case you missed it, another Animal Crossing themed game is coming to Wii U this 2015 Holiday season.  

Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival looks to be a Mario Party-theme style game starring some of your favorite Animal Crossing non-playable characters.  A set of amiibo figurines will also be released during the time the game becomes available and look to be useable in the game.  Not much is known about the game other than what can be gleamed from the trailer which debuted yesterday at E3.  Check the link for more details and to see the game in action.

New Board: "Site Features Queue" and Re: Archiving Threads
I wanted to post a couple updates for everyone.

First, after hearing that some members are experiencing issues with threads archiving and losing valuable information, we've switched off the archive feature for now, and will monitor how things go over the next few months. We may decide to leave it off for good, or we may figure out better alternatives. But for now, we're leaving all threads active going forward (note: previously archived threads are still archived).

Second, the Modmins and I would like to introduce you to a new board - the Site Features Queue board. This board will eventually list almost all of the threads that we have on the Staff work boards, and which relate to features that require Devs to implement. We haven't finished adding all of the threads to the SFQ board yet, but at least half have been added and there is certainly enough for the Community to get involved with.

Please note that you shouldn't post in all threads on the SFQ board. For a more detailed breakdown of the board you should read the ''Site Features Queue Board - Information and Guidelines'' Sticky, and if you have any questions about the board or threads you should post in the ''SFQ Board - Questions & Information Corrections'' Sticky.

You will see mention of ACC 2.0 several times on the SFQ board. This is because the current aim after the release of the Bell Shop is to rewrite ACC. However, this is not certain and we'll update you again after the Bell Shop is open.

Talking of the Bell Shop, we are looking at releasing this in multiple stages, so that we can get the features to you quicker, and so we can get feedback sooner. This approach also helps keep the changes small, reducing the risk of bugs. Again, we'll update you soon on whether that will happen and what each stage would involve.

For now, enjoy the new board and watch out for at least a couple of hundred discussion threads that will be added to the SFQ board over the Summer.

Email Outage
We're currently experiencing issues sending out emails. This includes emails that the site sends as part of signing up and password resets, as well as emails that the staff sends out.

We're looking into it, and will let everyone know once this has been resolved.

UPDATE: Email has been restored. If you previously registered for an account, please try resetting your password, and you should get a new password you can use to sign in with. If you continue to have issues, please contact us at support@animalcrossingcommunity.com.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Animal Crossing News from Nintendo
A couple of days ago Nintendo announced via Nintendo Direct some things relating to one of our favorite franchises, Animal Crossing   

While there was no news about the next full installment for the Animal Crossing series, Nintendo did announce a spin-off game called Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer for the 3DS slated for release in Fall of 2015.  This game focuses on designing rooms for our favorite animal neighbors.  What was also announced regarding this game was that it will make use of amiibo cards.  You will use these cards to import an animal into the game so that you can decorate their room to their very specific taste.  You may also use these cards to invite other neighbors over to view rooms you've already decorated for other neighbors.  The cards, along with an amiibo scanner for use with older versions of the 3DS and the 2DS, will be released on the same day that the game is released.  

The other Animal Crossing related news was that an Animal Crossing DLC expansion pack is coming for Mario Kart 8.  The DLC will be available earlier than anticipated on April 23.  The pack will include 8 courses, 3 new racers (Isabelle, Villager and Dry Bowser), and 4 new karts.  In addition to enjoying the Animal Crossing theme as a faster-paced racing tune, each time you race the course you'll be treated to a different season - Fall, Winter, Spring or Summer - just like in the Animal Crossing games.  

Finally, as a Bell Shop related side-note, we've already decided on having E-Cards similar to the amiibo cards available in the Bell Shop for Villagers, NPCs and Special Visitors.  Looks like you will have a lot of amiibo and E-Cards collecting in your future
