It looks like the new Animal Crossing game for the Wii has brought a bit of a surprise with it: a new microphone add-on dubbed WiiSpeak. It's described as a "community microphone" that will let a player or group of players in one room chat with another group in a room anywhere else in the world. No word on how much of a premium it'll add to the game (if any), but you can apparently look for it to be available sometime before the end of the year. Head on past the break for another pic of the device.Update:
According to Nintendo's E3 press release,
Animal Crossing: City Folk will be released on November 16th, and the WiiSpeak microphone will be available separately for $29.99.
