Doubutsu no Mori e+, often called Animal Forest e+ by English-speaking fans, is a Japan exclusive update of the GameCube port. When Nintendo decided to port Animal Forest + to the GameCube, the American version, Animal Crossing, had much more content than the Japanese version. Nintendo of Japan was so impressed with the results of the translation done by Nintendo of America's Treehouse division that they translated Nintendo of America's version back into Japanese and released it as Doubutsu no Mori e+. Doubutsu no Mori e+ was released in Japan on June 27, 2003.

Animal Forest e+ had many new features and characters. One of these new features was the Town Decoration. Town decorations were structures that can be placed on signposts. These items can be bought in Tom Nook's Store or by inputting codes that could be found in the official site. All town decorations simply serve just one function; to be decorations.

There are also 18 new islanders in Doubutsu no Mori e+ in addition to the original islanders seen in Animal Crossing such as Marina, and 77 new exclusives such as Margie. The Island is also present, without the need of a GBA hookup, and eighteen new islanders. There is an entire extra row of fish and insects to collect, making 16 new species total that are not present in Animal Crossing including the Horse Mackerel, Squid, Octopus, Dab, Olive Flounder, Seahorse, Puffer Fish and the Swordfish and the Crab, Hermit Crab, Coconut Crab, Flea, Water Beetle, Birdwing Butterfly, Dung Beetle and Hercules Beetle for new insects. The latter two bugs and fish are only obtainable on the island.

Additionally, the Brook Trout from Animal Crossing has not been switched with the Herabuna as it was in previous games, and remains.

In Animal Forest e+, the island is now a debt. The player can access it before they pay it off, however. The GBA is no longer necessary to visit the island. After paying off the 2nd floor and speaking to Tom Nook, he will offer the player the island who will then name it. Then, the island can be accessed by speaking to Kapp'n. In addition, each player in town can have their own island. There are no islanders on the island until the player chooses some by going to the Wishing Well, and scanning the islander’s e-card. There are 2 fish and 2 insects which can only be caught on the island. The pufferfish and marlin can only be caught in the ocean from the island. The birdwing butterfly and the hercules beetle can only be caught on the island.

Villagers will also have the same house as others, with the wallpaper and flooring changed.
