Available on the GCN versions of Animal Forest were several new features that used the GCN's ability to connect to Nintendo's Gameboy Advance. The most interesting of these new features was the ability to visit your own little Animal Island.

On the GCN side, Animal Island plays very similarly to your town. There's a single hut which you can decorate, and another that an islander lives in who you can talk to and give items. You can plant fruit, catch bugs... and do pretty much anything you do in your town, except it's on this little tropical island.

On the GBA side, things get more interesting. The islander that lives on the island now acts as a virtual pet that you have to feed and take care of, and will in return drop bells that you can grab on the GCN side. You can also trade islands with other other Animal Crossing players and visit them on your GCN.

While the features in Animal Island are nothing ground breaking, they're a welcome addition to the series.

Many licensed from other companies like a battery and a playing card, and several items created by Nintendo themselves like a d-pad and a Game&Watch. One imparticular item just happened to have come from Animal Crossing.

The concept behind the Wario Ware games is to throw small "micro-games" at you at a blindingly fast pace. Often these games contain cameos from the Nintendo universe. Wario Ware Twisted has one particular game that happens to feature a cameo from Animal Crossing.
