Hey,

I've been wondering about that too, back when I was a bit addicted to this game... (Before I went to Animal Rehab.)

When you type in this game (e.g. write down your name at the beginning), there are very short samples of each letter - definitely some recorded and sped up voices!
When talking to the villagers, it's a very similar sound. Sometimes pitched up and down a bit depending on who's talking to you. The sound you refer to is those letter samples jumbled up in some kind of way.

My best guess is that they programmed some kind of algorithm that picks out a few letters from each word, or maybe just plays back every third-or-so letter. Maybe it's a lot more complicated, it's hard to tell.
They probably experimented quite a bit before they ended up with that cute babbling sound - the overall sound direction in the game is great!

Hope that helped a bit.

EDIT: Oh, I'm referring to Animal Crossing: Wild World for the NDS, by the way. Sounds like the voices in the other versions are done in the same way, though!

Cheers,
Moritz
