Nintendo has just released a new developer diary video that features some of the members of the Treehouse localization team, a group who has helped bring  Nintendo’s smash hit series,  Animal Crossing, to its western fans. The video shows some of the key members discussing their experiences from working on the series throughout the years. The video also sheds light on some concerns regarding the newest addition of the Animal Crossing franchise, Animal Crossing: New Leaf. The video is featured below for your viewing pleasure.



The Treehouse group has been hard at work localizing Animal Crossing: New Leaf, having started the translation process in March 2012.

Fans of the series can expect to see Treehouse’s latest contribution to the series when Animal Crossing: New Leaf gets released this summer on June 9th for North America, and June 14th for Europe. You can go to Nintendo’s own official website for more information.
