Animal Crossing Plaza launches on Wii U
3DS hit Animal Crossing: New Leaf has received a new app on the Wii U today that lets players talk about their towns and share images with others from around the world.
Animal Crossing Plaza, as the app is called, allows players to import images taken in the 3DS game, custom design QR Code patterns via their SD cards, and organize them into albums. Using those images, players can post messages to Miiverse. The QR Code patterns can, meanwhile, be directly scanned and used in New Leaf. The plaza itself is similar to the Mii Plaza, only your Nintendo Miis are replaced with cute and cuddly Animal Crossing critters.
The Animal Crossing Plaza is available to download for free from the Wii U eShop. Nintendo says the service will run through the end of 2014.
