Animal Crossing will be a social networking MMO when it reaches Nintendo's Wii, naturally evolving the hugely successful series from a charming but essentially robotic experience into an exciting and socially interactive world.

This revelation comes courtesy of Edge, who credit an unamed Japanese source with confirming Animal Crossing's MMO status. The game itself has yet to be announced, even though Nintendo's Katsuya Eguchi has spoken before about the game's motion controls.

To read the full news piece, including details on the game's possible 'communication' aspects and Nintendo's development of flash drives for DS, grab yourself a copy of Edge #182, on sale tomorrow.
