Start a New, Peaceful Life in Animal Crossing: New Leaf Available on 14th June
with the Special Edition Nintendo 3DS XL
Build public works, customise your town or simply unwind
- what would you do as mayor?
LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 04/19/13 -- Imagine an
idyllic town filled with animal friends where you can do almost
anything you wish, where you can let your creativity run wild to
customise your surroundings and at any time visit a tropical resort
to play around in or just unwind... Welcome to the world of Animal
Crossing: New Leaf, where you're the mayor of your own virtual town!
Exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS family of consoles, here's a game
you'll always want to carry with you, as real time affects the
events, things to do and friends to meet, starting less than two
months from now, on 14th June.
To celebrate the upcoming launch of this unique game, which has
already taken Japan by storm, it was revealed in the latest Nintendo
Direct presentation that the Special Edition Animal Crossing: New
Leaf Nintendo 3DS XL will be coming to Europe as well. This special
version of the Nintendo 3DS XL console features a colourful Animal
Crossing-themed design and comes with the game itself pre-installed
on the system.
Fans eager to find out more about the many features of the game will
have plenty of opportunities to stay up-to-date. Nintendo of Europe
recently launched an official Twitter account for Isabelle, one of
the game's main characters, as she awaits the arrival of the new
mayor in town, as well as an official Facebook page for Animal
Crossing: New Leaf, featuring the latest news and fun facts about the
game. The official website is also now available and already features
plenty of information and a dedicated Iwata Asks interview for
developer insight on the game.
Upon your arrival in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, you find yourself in
a prestigious position when you're mistaken for the mayor.
Thankfully, Isabelle is at hand to show you the ropes of running the
town - a task that you can take to heart with as much effort or as
little as you like. Decorate the town with public works and
participate in their opening ceremonies. Open a club to party with
friends into the night, a cafe to sip coffee in, or the Dream Spa to
pay a dream visit to other
player's towns from all over the world. As
mayor you also have your say in how your town functions by way of
ordinances: why not have the shops open later in the evening if
you're a night owl? Or have a beautiful town where all the flowers
never need watering?
Not only can you decree what is built in your town, you can also show
off your style and creativity from what you wear to where you live.
Be the most fashionable in town and buy the latest outfits and
accessories at the shop, or create your own designs and customise
your clothes, then share your favourite designs with friends or
collect new ones via QR Codes. You may start off living in a tent but
you'll soon be able to unleash your inner architect and expand to a
house, and choose from a daily changing selection of house fixtures
and fittings to eventually build your dream mansion. You can also
become an interior decorator, with a huge array of different
furniture and styles of wallpaper to suit your mood as the seasons
change; as with your clothing you can apply your own designs to
really make your home your own.
Animal Crossing: New Leaf is also about communication - both with the
kooky cast of animal characters that can move in and out of your town
as well as your normal-life friends far and wide, with many game
features geared towards sharing the joy of your town with others. Be
house proud with the Happy Home Showcase and share a model of your
unique home and decor with other players you encountered via
StreetPass - if you fancy some of the furnishings others have on
display, you could order them from a handy catalogue. Invite friends
locally or online to your town and they can share items, go shopping
or play games and bring back souvenirs from on a tropical island
resort that is just a jaunty little boat trip away. You can document
all your experiences by taking 3D snapshots everywhere you go, with
all these memories saved to your SD Card for easy sharing with
On top of the wealth of new features and animal friends making their
debut in the game, many of the pleasurable pastimes from previous
entries in the Animal Crossing series - such as gardening, fishing
and digging for fossils - as well as animal characters adored by
millions of players all over the world, also return on Nintendo 3DS,
making a trip to this new town both comfortingly familiar as well as
excitingly new for returning fans.
If you fancy playing the game every day and don't want to worry about
leaving your Game Card behind, the digital download version of the
game from the Nintendo eShop may be just the ticket to ensure you
will always have your town at hand. Players who pre-order the game in
select stores may also receive a limited edition Isabelle figurine
with Town Hall model to commemorate their new life as mayor with
Animal Crossing: New Leaf.
Whether as packaged game at retail or as a digital download from
Nintendo eShop, the time is coming to take a seat behind the mayor's
desk in Animal Crossing: New Leaf from the 14th June in Europe. Be
sure to keep an eye out on the links below for the latest news from
your soon-to-be new life!
