Product Description


Start a new life as mayor of your own town and create the perfect place to live.

It’s never easy moving to a new town. There are new friends to meet and new places to explore… but it’s even trickier when you happen to be the mayor! When you play Animal Crossing: New Leaf on the Nintendo 3DS Nintendo 3DS & Nintendo 2DS, you’ll be challenged to set up home in a new town shaped entirely by you. The game uses the same popular freeform gameplay from previous Animal Crossing games, which allows you to freely explore your territory without restriction. There are no specific goals to achieve, nor is there any story to follow. In fact, there isn’t even an ending! Instead, you’ll be challenged to simply enjoy yourself by getting to know your town and watching it grow and flourish on a day-to-day basis in real time! Animal Crossing: New Leaf sees you crowned mayor as a result of a bit of an accident. When you arrive, Isabelle the town clerk will reveal that you’ve been given the post and from there you can do whatever you please! Use your powers as the mayor to shape the town however you wish, whether this means building bridges, creating public works projects or laying down laws (or ordinances as they are known). With all this freedom, you could soon have the home and town of your dreams!

Enjoy Animal Crossing: New Leaf alone or with others, as up to four friends, family and even strangers can meet up in the game on a single Game Card when playing at different times, allowing you to share some of your experiences. You can also get together simultaneously with those who buy or download Animal Crossing: New Leaf for themselves either online or via Local Play. This means you can visit the island together, take on the many minigames or just hang around together wherever you like! Use StreetPass to share your home with visitors or head to the Happy Home Exhibition where you can check out what others have done with their pads. You can even travel to other people's towns online as you sleep when using the Dream Suite.


Features
  • Enjoy in-game life with real-time play
  • Use your mayoral prowess to create the town of your dreams
  • Make friends with lots of new characters

5.0 out of 5 stars I want my life back!! 3 July 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm a married, professional, father of two and I want my life back!
I shouldn't have to water my daughters trees because she hasn't got a watering can or have to post presents to my son because he's collecting mario items.
I shouldn't be so far in debt to Tom Nook or spend so much money on a suspension bridge.
I shouldn't have to run errands for pigs or pay house visits to bears or compliment hippos on their wardrobe.
I shouldn't have to spend so much time fishing or collecting or free diving.
I really shouldn't have a compulsion to single handedly stock an entire aquarium whilst my children sell all their fish to gain bells to buy junk.
I shouldn't HAVE to do any of these things. But I DO them!!!
Every day I do them. And I can't stop it.
My wife calls it an addiction, but that's just because she can't bring herself to admit the truth. I'm actually having an affair with a bunch of pixellated animals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than Wild World 3 Dec 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was a huge fan of Wild World so bought the New Leaf XL bundle the day it came out - and now, months later, I'm buying a second copy of this game... that should tell you just how much fun this is.

Well, I say "game". I think of it more as a virtual holiday cottage. I'll explain.

Perhaps you want to build the perfect house, full of things that say just who you are - there are literally hundreds of items of collectable furniture. I've unlocked over 500 myself and am still going - and that's not including clothes. Now you've furnished your ideal holiday home, you can swim, dig for dinosaur fossils, fish, catch butterflies, make snowmen in winter, take a boat to a tropical island to play minigames... there is something do do whether you have minutes or hours (and believe me, I've put in the hours).

But the thing about New Leaf - drawback or plus, depending on how you like your gaming - is it's SLOOOOOW. There's lots to do - gardening, minigames, shopping, fishing - but it's real time, and I mean *real* time. You can only make snowmen in winter, and winter is exactly when it is in real life (northern hemisphere, I should point out). Shops are shut at night, although if you're a night owl like me you can tweak the opening hours a bit. I think this just adds to the realism, and gives you a reason to come back to the game - every month brings new bugs and fish to catch, and new game events to collect items from. A lot of the game features take time to unlock, but it makes it feel more like a living, developing community.

And unlike a lot of the "casual" gardening games on Facebook, for example, there are no severe penalties to not playing, other than missing possible items in shops or special events.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Game I've Played On My 3DS! 22 July 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I decided to buy this game on release day as I was very excited for it after playing the previous DS title "Wild World". I've decided to split the review up to make every aspect of the game easier to read!

When you first start up the game you'll recognise the guy on the tram from the other Animal Crossing titles and you receive a small tutorial on things which is good for new and old players to the game. After getting off of the train you are then confused as mayor of the town and actually made mayor! On the first day you'll set about doing things like talking to Isabelle, getting a place for your house from Tom Nook and doing a ceremony to celebrate your arrival.

You'll start out in a tent and gradually waste millions of bells upgrading your home with Tom Nook. Main Street is very similar to the Wii version that I haven't played much but includes old and new shops. To start off with you'll have the post office, photo booth, museum, nookling juction, able sisters and nook's homes. You gradually unlock more stores which will take some time and bells to unlock. Instead of Nook owning the village store he now owns the home improvement store "Nook's Homes" and the village store is now owned by Tommy and Timmy, Nooks' nephews who sell pretty much everything that's not fashion related. "Nookling Junction" is the only expandable store in the game and usually involves spending a set number of bells in the store to expand. The only shop in the actual town and not on main street is Re-Tail which allows you to sell items and put them up for sale and also customise furniture later on.

You'll be able to do all of the things you are normally able to do in the previous titles such as Fishing, Bug Catching, Talking to neighbours, Shopping and Decorating your house.

5.0 out of 5 stars A charming and adorable game! 11 Aug 2014
By Charlie
Verified Purchase
This game is one of my new classics, I have now spent a number or hours playing on it - I also use it as a stress buster! The graphics look great and the colours are so nice. Basically you are the mayor of a new town and you have to make it pretty and popular. You will be given a small house which you can work in order to earn 'bells' to upgrade it. You can decorate your house too using wallpaper and furniture you can buy too. I have made quite a few friends on this, I often visit their towns and have a little wander whilst I'm there. As you play the game people will move in to your town, it's a good idea to get to know them as they can provide tips to help you along the way. To spend time in the game you can fish, catch bugs or collect fruit and then sell it for money or 'bells'. Gameplay on this is slow, like, very slow. It takes nearly half an hour into the game just to get a house. The game uses real-time in order to work. Basically that means that if it's two PM in our world, it's the same in theirs. Meaning shops will close at 9pm I think, and open at 10am. However, if like me, you want to play this during night time then you can simply change the in-game time by talking to Isabella, she will appear when you first open the game. I recommend that you change it to 10am. It's sunny and the shops open at that time. So, go and buy this. It's a lovely game that I can't get off!
