Earlier we reported on the “Red Tulip” glitch in Animal Crossing. It appears that Nintendo has now made an official statement about the matter:

 "We have isolated the problem and determined that there was a temporary error with the upload tool when this letter was posted," said Nintendo, indicating that the corrupted data was the result of an error on its part rather than the equivalent of a user-created virus. "Thankfully we have been able to limit the number of people affected by removing the related file from circulation. Players who have received the letter should delete it before placing the Red Tulip anywhere in their characters’ homes."

Though there's currently no fix for players who have already been affected, Nintendo is looking into the matter. "We are investigating ways to remove the item from the homes of players who have experienced game-play interference," the statement continued, "and we will update the Animal Crossing: Wild World FAQ on NintendoWiFi.com when we have more information to share."
