Animal Crossing movie coming

3 million copies of DS game sold.

Nintendo has announced that more than 3 million copies of DS title Animal Crossing: Wild World have been shipped around the globe.

It's proved so popular, in fact, that a big screen adaptation is now on the way. Japanese director Jouji Shimura will take the helm for the animated movie, which is set to hit cinemas over there in December.

There's no word on a European release date yet, but we'll keep you posted. In the meantime, if you haven't picked up a copy of Animal Crossing yet, why not read our review to find out what all the fuss is about...
