Animal Crossing Plaza was a free to play application developed and published by Nintendo for the Wii U. A spin-off of Animal Crossing: New Leaf of the Animal Crossing series, Plaza was released as a tie-in to Miiverse, Nintendo's now-defunct social networking service. The application is no longer actively supported by Nintendo, and was removed from the Nintendo eShop on December 22, 2014.


Animal Crossing Plaza was a free to play social networking service that allowed users to interact with other players of the Nintendo 3DS game Animal Crossing: New Leaf. The application was similar to Nintendo's Wara Wara Plaza,[1] and allowed users to post messages for other players, receive news and updates about New Leaf, and participate in polls.[2] The game connected with New Leaf via SD card, allowing players to post and archive New Leaf screenshots, and share in-game clothing designs using QR codes.[3] Users could also upload Plaza posts directly to Nintendo's Miiverse social networking service.[4] The game's overworld was populated by non-player characters from the Animal Crossing series, who users could interact with.[5]
