The unsung heroes of Animal Crossing development, the folks who translate the absurd amount of text featured in the Animal Crossing games, finally get their moment in the spotlight.

The developer diary interviews the team that have been working on bringing the games to North America since the beginning. Work on New Leaf began as early as 2010, and they talk about how they are the ones who need to come up with the names for every item in the game. If you've played Animal Crossing, you will know that that is a whole lot of object naming.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf is coming to 3DS on June 9, and you can head here to see the latest trailer for the game.
