This comes courtesy of notable Nintendo leaker Emily Rogers who sparked speculation about the upcoming Direct.
In a now deleted tweet Rogers appeared to tease that an Animal Crossing Direct could be happening this week.
The hint came as Rogers replied to @PixelPar who had posted on Twitter on Saturday their hopes for an imminent Nintendo Direct.
The founding editor of Nintendo news site LootPots tweeted: “God, I hope there’s a Direct next week.”
To which Rodgers reportedly replied: “Are you an Animal Crossing fan?”
The comments from Rogers seem to chime in with what fellow leaker Zippo had previously posted on ResetEra.
