If you’ve enjoyed one too many Bug Hunts or are growing tired of Kapp’n’s songs as you sail across to the Tropical Island, then you’re in luck.

Nintendo are already in discussion as to what they’ll do next with Animal Crossing, that is according to series creator and producer Katsuya Eguchi at least.

“We have already started thinking about what to do next, but there is no concrete direction yet,” he revealed, in response to EDGE asking as to whether they will continue using the same template.

“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.”
