Animal Crossing: City Folk and Wii Speak to Retail for $70
Word has leaked from the ongoing GameStop manager’s conference in Las Vegas that the Animal Crossing: City Folk and Wii Speak bundle will run you a pricey $70 — which cued an anonymous 1UP editor to say, “$70!? For that price it had better come with a white van for abducting kids you meet in your magical little animal town.”
This bundle is a cheaper alternative to buying the game and microphone separately, with a standalone Wii Speak running you $30. Even so, $70 is an exorbitant price for a game that by all appearances hasn’t evolved much since we knew the game as Animal Forest for N64.
At $70, is the price now too high to engage in emergent gameplay-like activities such as makeshift fishing tournaments? Check out our E3 preview of the game here and let us know what your thoughts are in the comments below.
