Product Description

Please Note: 3DS titles are not compatible with standard Nintendo DS consoles

Moving to a new town and making new friends is a big step… but it's even bigger when you're the mayor! Get ready to enjoy a whole new life in a town shaped entirely by you as Animal Crossing New Leaf comes to Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL.

Continuing the much-loved freeform gameplay from previous Animal Crossing titles, Animal Crossing New Leaf is a game without any restrictions. There are no goals, no story, not even an ending – instead, you can enjoy life in your new town in any way you choose. And since time in the game moves at the same pace as in the real world, every day brings new experiences!

Your first steps in Animal Crossing New Leaf come about by accident: shortly after arriving in town, a mix-up by Isabelle the town clerk sees you become the mayor! Although you can still do whatever you please, your new powers as mayor allow you to shape the town in any way you wish. From creating public works projects that add buildings, bridges and all kinds of decorative items to laying down ordinances (a fancy word for laws) that dictate how your town runs. You've now got the freedom to make the town of your dreams!

If non-stop sunshine is more your thing, then a trip to the island might be just what you need! Take the boat ride with Kapp'n, then explore an island full of tropical fruits, insects and fish to your heart's content. And while you're there, consider enjoying a tour or two – play minigames either alone, with friends or online with other players, then trade in the medals you earn for some souvenirs to take back home.

There's even more freedom to express yourself in Animal Crossing New Leaf! You can buy new clothes – tops, trousers, skirts, hats, masks and even sho

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 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.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is the best in the series. Very well thought out and totally addictive. There is so much to do in the game - the island is brilliant with over 60 mini-games to play as well as bugs and fish to catch. New fruit is available to bring back to your town, there is a fleamarket, new shops and so many upgrades to unlock as time goes on. With so much in the game this is well worth the money. I love playing this. I look forward to my time with it every day as there is always something new to do or discover. I think this is a must buy for anyone with a DS.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best entry in the series yet. 14 Jun 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
New Leaf is an excellent followup to the frankly less than impressive Let's go to the city / City folk. First thing you notice on starting up the game: the music. It's the sort of music that just puts a smile on your face, nice melodies appropriate to the time of day really help you chill out which is what most people play Animal Crossing for, so definitely a plus.

The game starts very naturally, conspicuously absent is the frustrating and limiting tutorial of previous games which is a welcome change. You arrive at a new town as per usual, but this time there's a twist. Somehow, you have accidentally become the mayor of the town! You then proceed to go about your daily life as is the meat of the series; fishing, catching bugs, collecting fossils, being conned into buying forged artwork (the usual). Or you can spend your time making as much money as humanly possible to pay for the insane amount of town and home upgrades available, and buy furniture wallpaper and flooring to fill said home.

Somewhat changed from earlier games, and clearly borrowed from the Wii version is main street. Here you have many shops and services such as the Able sisters clothes, Nooks real estate and the Museum. Many more become available as you play and doing certain things upgrades the shops. Getting everything maxed will take months of daily play but it doesn't matter- you're not really bothered about that as you stroll down the beach collecting interesting shells.

Many many quality of life improvements are to be found which seem small but add up to a wonderful playing experience. Then there's the island which will probably take a standard player a week or so to unlock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Majestic 28 Jan 2014
First a confession. I played Animal Crossing on DS for a couple of hours and thought it was dreadful. I couldn't understand the appeal. I arrived in an empty, tiny town, was given a mortgage to pay off, collected some apples to pay it, and was then given a bigger mortgage. With nothing to do, I switched off.

Friends implored me to try again and so I took the opportunity with this new version on 3DS. This time, I played it 'properly', and now I get it.

Animal Crossing has lots to do, but it keeps it from you at the beginning. It's a game that rewards patience, promising something coming 'tomorrow' (by which they literally mean the next real world day). And so I had the same frustrations as before, left with nothing to do. Or so I thought. Because it's in those moments of nothingness that the game reveals itself. Suddenly you find simple pleasures in removing weeds, talking to villagers, rearranging furniture. Before you know it, the next day has arrived and the game has a new toy for you to play with.

I'm 75 hours in, and the game has still not revealed half of its secrets. Shops are still yet to open. My collection of bugs and fish awaits the next month or season to enhance. But I'm hooked and now have more than enough to occupy a gaming session of any length.

As a contrast with more traditional games, as something with fun and personality, for an accomplished gaming experience in its own right, Animal Crossing is wonderful. I'm a convert.
