Animal Crossing: Wild World (known as simply Animal Crossing in the British English version) is one of 9-Volt & 18-Volt's microgames in WarioWare: Smooth Moves, and reappears in WarioWare Gold, where it is one of 18-Volt's microgames. It is set in the Nintendo DS game of the same name.


The object is to catch the fish by waiting for it to pull the bait, then pulling the Wii Remote out (twisting the Nintendo 3DS in Gold) to catch it.

  • Level 1: One fish.
  • Level 2: One fish, which takes a bit longer to catch.
  • Level 3: Two fish; however, the player only has to catch one. In Gold, there is only one fish, but it takes even longer to catch.

  • Despite being named after Animal Crossing: Wild World, the second game in the Animal Crossing series, the microgame also features elements from the first game in the series, including the presence of lilies in the pond, and the background music in WarioWare: Smooth Moves being the "12 PM" theme from that game. In the WarioWare Gold version, however, the "3 PM" theme from Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk plays instead.
