|Animal Crossing 2|
|Release date|| Planned:|
Animal Crossing 2 was a planned sequel to Animal Crossing. It was planned to be released on the Nintendo GameCube, the same system as the original English release. The game was never released. In a screenshot that was released, it is shown that the Wishing Well is replaced with the Bell Shrine, which was featured in the Japanese-only games. Also, Ace and Anicotti are shown having a picnic. This screenshot is the international version, because the symbols around Anicotti are the international laughing symbols. Another screenshot simply shows a female player by their house, with Peaches nearby.
It is unknown why this game was canceled, but due to the imminent release of the Nintendo DS, Nintendo likely decided making a game that could take advantage of the new hardware would be more worthwhile than a second console outing. Therefore, Animal Crossing: Wild World was released instead.
