MySims - more like Animal Crossing all the time

The latest from MySims DS looks so much like Animal Crossing that we kept scanning the background for Tom Nook. There's even a fishing interlude. And according to IGN's interview with producer Mitch Ueno, "You can even design your clothes with the DS stylus." The only real difference is in the character designs, so if you hate animals, but always wanted to play Animal Crossing, your day is coming.

Despite our disparaging tone, we here at DS Fanboy will probably turn in hundreds of hours on MySims, especially if you can power off the DS without getting a ten-minute lecture.

1. Except this actually looks way better and more fun than Animal Crossing. Let's hope I'm right, because I'm looking forward to this game.

2. I've wasted hundreds of hours in Animal Crossing before realizing that I wasn't having fun anymore; it was just grinding. Sorry, I'll have to pass on this.
