Animal Crossing: The Animated Movie with English Subtitles

Filed under: General — Laura Moncur @ 5:00 am

A couple of years ago, a Japanese animated movie for Animal Crossing was released. I talked about it here.

It still hasn’t been released in the states, but here is a translated version of the movie on YouTube:

This is the whole movie and it automatically plays Part 1 through Part 7.

I’m surprised at the differences in the names. Some of them are the same, such as Apollo, Cesar and Cyrano, but Alfonso’s name changes to Halberd, Whitney’s name changes to Bianca, Rosie’s name changes to Bouquet and Margie’s name is Sally. I have to admit that the movie captures the feeling of a year’s worth of playing Animal Crossing in just an hour or so. Right down to the blue roses, allusions to the acorn festival and the grief for an animal friend that moves without telling you ahead of time.

The beauty of this movie is that, just like the game, you could make many more with other plots. Ali could meet Dr. Shrunk, Lyle, and the other town visitors that were only alluded to in the movie. It’s a shame this movie didn’t make it to the United States. I’m so grateful to taellie for uploading it to YouTube for us to enjoy!

  1. Thanks! My kids, who are big Animal Crossing fans, watched the whole thing. By the way, how do you get YouTube videos to string together like that?

    I don’t know…

    I copied the source code from The Bell Tree. That’s how it worked on his site, so I used his source code. I’ve looked at the source and I don’t know how he did it!
