Is there anymore information on this? Because this sounds completely ridiculous as it is right now.

That's a bunch of crap.

Don't worry, I will.

Yes, cause charging one dollar for this cancels out the free Animal Crossing DLC that every other company would charge bucket loads per furnature.

Can't wait for this to come out, hopefully we get it around the same time or sooner since it was NOA who initially developed it. I can see it being one of the stand out features on the Wii U that differentiates it from the competition if Nintendo does it right.
