Hope you all had a wonderful April 1st! Very Happy (Male)

Sorry if I alarmed everyone with this post, no harm meant. None of this is true. New Leaf is still scheduled for June. Very Happy (Male)

Quote:Tragic news for Nintendo fans on this otherwise fine day .

First off, a fire at Nintendo of America headquarters in Redmond, Washington, United States on March 31, 2013 completely devastated the site. Thankfully no one was hurt, but everything is a total loss. Reggie Fils-Aime had this to say about the devastating event:
Quote:There is no way we can come back from this. We lost everything. Literally everything. This includes the American eShop, its products, and any projects we have been working on. No one's body could have been ready for this. Therefore, we regretfully announce our closure. All of our future releases are hereby cancelled. This means that games like Animal Crossing: New Leaf will never be released in America. Future games might end up being sold in America if we can find a distributor, but right now the future is bleak.

Later that same day, Nintendo heads and shareholders in Japan decided that the best course of action for Nintendo is to dissolve and sell its assets. This comes after selling the 3DS at a loss for so long and the disappointing Wii U sales. Satoru Iwata had this comment on this decision:
Quote:We have decided to shut the entire corporation of Nintendo down. We feel like it is the right time. We brought touch screens to handhelds with the DS, and also two screens. This allowed games to be more diverse. Games like Nintendogs and Elite Beat Agents would not be possible without the touch screen. We introduced the Wii, and gave the world motion controls that were originally mocked, but came to be an important part of the console race. Games like Wii Sports, the best-selling console game of all time, and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword would not have been possible in the slightest without the Wii Remote. We gave the world 3D in your pocket with the 3DS. While we admit this was not as big as a touch screen or motion control, 3D gives deeper immersion. It is a step forward to virtual reality, which we are now seeing becoming a reality in itself with the Oculus Rift. We brought the dual screen plus touch screen to the home console with the Wii U. This allows clutter to be removed from the TV and put on the controller screen. It also allows for games to be played without any sort of monitor aside from the Wii U controller. We are seeing this being implemented in some ways with the next generation of consoles. We believe we have succeeded in providing innovation. However, we have not done so well since after the Wii launch. The Wii launched with a bang and did not slow down until the end of its lifetime. However, the money we made from the Wii was not enough to cover the 3DS's losses and poor Wii U sales, despite speculation that we could survive multiple console generations before having to shut down. Sadly, this is not the case. We are getting dangerously low financially. The fire today at Nintendo of America pushed us to this decision in the end. We just cannot recover from this. We regret to inform you that Nintendo will be shutting down and all of its assets will be sold. All we can do now is leave luck to heaven and wait for innovation to happen.

Truly sad news today. Due to this depressing news, ACP will be shutting down. We feel like we should not go on if Nintendo does not exist. We cherish all of the good times on here, and we wish you all the best. Happy (Male)

We're staying, but inactive apparently. Nintendo is not shutting down, and neither is ACP. There was no fire.
