             Nintendo World is getting a temporary makeover to celebrate the
             highly anticipated release of Animal Crossing: New Leaf for the
             portable Nintendo 3DS system. The store will be transformed into
             the personalized, charming town featured in the upcoming
             hand-held game. Consumers can collect a series of Animal
             Crossing-themed buttons for completing a variety of fun
WHAT:     activities inspired by the game such as bug catching, fossil
             digging and fishing. For those who want to get their groove on,
             the second floor of the store will feature a DJ spinning music.
             To ensure that everyone has fond memories of the day, there will
             also be plenty of photo opportunities throughout the store
             featuring cutouts of some of the game’s most recognizable
             As a special treat for fans, the Animal Crossing: New Leaf game
             as well as the special-edition Nintendo 3DS XL Animal Crossing:
             New Leaf hardware bundle will be available in limited quantities
             to purchase at the event, one day ahead of the game’s national
