This article is about the Wii U application. For the location in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, see plaza.

Animal Crossing Plaza is a discontinued social application for the Wii U that was available for free from the Nintendo eShop. It was released on August 7, 2013 in North America and PAL countries, and on August 8, 2013 in Japan, and it was available until December 22, 2014.

The app's design was inspired by the Wii U's own WaraWara Plaza layout.[1]


In the plaza[edit]

Villagers talking

The plaza is filled with animals from the Animal Crossing series, including villagers and special characters. Periodically, characters will give comments or speak about themselves. The plaza also contains a bulletin board, which links the player to the Miiverse's Animal Crossing News Community.

Lloid will also direct the player to the Animal Crossing Series Community on Miiverse.


By selecting a villager or special character, the player can view their profile, which includes basic information about the animal, as well as links to post about and view posts about them. Additionally, the player may mark the animal as their favorite, which will ensure that the animal will always be present in the plaza.


When the player selects a Mii, they can manage their Mii's plaza profile, which includes their New Leaf town name, character name, and Dream Address. They may also view and edit albums of uploaded images. In this section of Animal Crossing Plaza, the player can post their plaza profiles and albums to the Animal Crossing Series Miiverse community. However, the ability to post and take part in surveys came to an end after December 31, 2014. [2]
