Animal Crossing (known as Dōbutsu no Mori (どうぶつの森?, lit. "Animal Forest") in Japan) is a life simulation video game developed by Nintendo EAD and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo GameCube. However, the original Japanese version was released only on the Nintendo 64 on April 14, 2001, before being ported to the Nintendo GameCube in different countries. Animal Crossing is an open-ended game in which the player character moves into a village populated with anthropomorphic animals. Throughout the game, the player can interact with the animals as well as other players through the GameCube's memory card. The game is synced with the Nintendo GameCube's internal clock and calendar, allowing the game to be played in real-time, which also follows seasons and holidays.
