Nintendo of America has issued a statement regarding the strange "Red Tulip" emails that have been circulating throughout Animal Crossing: Wild World for Nintendo DS via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, as recently referenced on Gamasutra sister weblog GameSetWatch.

The items, which would appear attached to a blank letter upon disconnecting from the WFC, would become an unremovable object if placed inside the player's home area, according to reports, which led Nintendo to release the official comment on user's issues:

"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 charactersí 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."
