One of the more fun, and less discussed, new gameplay additions in Animal Crossing: City Folk
is the ability to take snapshots and save them to an SD card for sharing. Nintendo and their Digicam Print Channel
partner, Fujifilm, are taking advantage of the new functionality with a new contest for Japan designed to encourage online photo sharing.
Until January 28, photos uploaded to the special Animal Crossing
section of Fuji's photo sharing site, Fotonoma, will be eligible for entry in a contest. Winners in each of two themes (favorite photos
and shots showing off fashion
) will receive prizes, including a new Fuji digital camera, a Wiimote and Nunchuk, or Animal Crossing
postcards. It sounds like a fun and novel way to interact with other Animal Crossing
fans while possibly winning stuff!
