Animal Crossing (aka Doubutsu no Mori Plus (どうぶつの森+) in Japan) is a video game series developed by Nintendo, in which the player lives his/her own virtual life in a village populated with anthropomorphic animals. The game takes place in real time, reflecting the current time of day and season. The individual games have been widely praised for their uniqueness and innovative nature, which has led to the series becoming one of Nintendo's leading franchises. As of January 2010, over 15,000,000 units of games from the Animal Crossing series have been sold.

An updated Japan-exclusive version, Doubutsu no Mori e+, was released in June 2003.

Emulation Information

Game Boy Advance <-> GameCube Connectivity

NOTE: Some versions of VBA-M may not work properly with the latest version of Dolphin. To ensure compatibility, make sure to try various revisions of VBA-M. The version of Dolphin after the GBA <-> GCN rewrite does not matter.

This title supports Game Boy Advance connection support can be supported via joybus emulation. Such requires VBA-M (r947 or newer) and a dump of GBA BIOS (see here for an excellent dump guide). To connect GBA:

  1. Launch Dolphin, start Animal Crossing.
  2. There is a special island that is unlocked with a GBA connection and you can play NES games on the GBA screen.
  3. In both cases, have one of the spare ports, choose GBA and run a compatible version of VBA-M
  4. Launch VBA-M, go to Options => Emulator and uncheck 'Pause When Inactive'. Then, go to Options => Link => Joybus options, mark 'Enable Joybus Connection' and use default settings (
  5. After enabling joybus in VBA-M, Dolphin will freeze (don't panic, its OK!). Now load the GBA BIOS in VBA-M, after the splash screen Dolphin will recognize the joybus link and game will detect that a GBA was connected.

To those having issues, please remember to unblock Dolphin and VBA-M in your firewall, some may block joybus link, leaving Dolphin stuck in connection screen.


NES Games: Bad Graphics

NES games are distorted by default. They require XFB Real to display correctly due to scaling. You can also avoid that by using Progressive Scan to play them without RealXFB. Also playing them on the GBA works without XFB Real. Fixed with Hybrid XFB in 5.0-5874.
