Retailer ShopTo listing the Animal Crossing: New Leaf 3DS XL Bundle

4 years ago 25 Comments


Just hours after a new Nintendo Direct was announced for North America and Europe, UK retailer ShopTo has listed the Animal Crossing: New Leaf 3DS XL Bundle on their website for £189.

Remember, retailers can be wrong and this is not an official confirmation. However, the bundle appearing 2 days before a 3DS Nintendo Direct is certainly suspicious. We’ll let you know if there’s any updates or listings from other retailers.

UPDATE: ShopTo has since removed the page from their website. Was it a mistake or did Nintendo tell them to take it down? Find out on the Nintendo Direct tomorrow I guess!

UPDATE 2: Annnnnd it’s back up as the bundle has been officially announced. Pre-orders are available on ShopTo right now.

    hoping so bad NA gets the bundle!

  • ACMaster

    Man… I was hoping the skin would be a little different. It’s okay, I’ll still get it if I have the money when it comes out.

  • Paige Sherwood-Rice

    I’m not going to answer the poll because I definitely have interest in it but I recently got the XL and I wouldn’t make my dad fork out for another one -.- and I certainly won’t be able to afford it

  • enamek

    anyone know if it comes with a digital or physical copy?

    • sunmarsh

      Japanese version came with digital copy loaded onto SD card, as did Fire Emblem bundle in the states.

        Same with Mario Kart and Super Mario 3D Land Bundles.

    • Luigifan64

      It does.

      • Mike Honcho

        Wow. Did you really reply to an ancient comment with an answer that isn’t really an answer at all?

  • Jack

    i would get it, but i have a 3ds already. and i preordered the game 🙁

  • Jenn

    From what I see it looks like the image of the bundle they are using is the Japanese one, which makes me unsure if it’ll actually come out. I hope it doea!

  • As much as I would love to get it, I already have the Pikachu 3DS XL and I was able to preorder the game for the very low price of $9.99 so…I would honestly be crazy to give that up just to pay for another system. Hoping it is released though for those who really want it!

  • sarahsokoolz

    The bundle pic is Japanese bundle

  • StarryACNL

    YES! MY birthday is just after the release and I was hoping I could get the bundle in Europe!

  • Sandra

    Dang it, too late!! I bought the Red 3ds a few days ago for the game DX

  • Faedrah

    Oh I hope this is it!! Fingers and toes and eyes crossed!

  • It’s about 220 euro’s.

  • Halony

    Uh, guys, the page is gone. ShopTo removed it…

  • Paige Sherwood-Rice

    i think they’ve taken it off because i just went on it and i went on the same page as you did and the XL isn’t on the side bar and i’ve reloaded the page. If they have taken it off, why? many thoughts..

      My 50th comment :3

    I’m almost 100% certain that the UK will indeed get the ACNL 3DSXL bundle, because as it stands, the advertising campaign for ACNL is much more heavily spread in the UK than the US… The official Animal Crossing: New Leaf twitter account @AC_Isabelle is actually called “Animal Crossing UK.” To me (an american citizen and advertising major in college) it seems strange to have an ad campaign start for one region and not another if you plan on having them coincide with each other… The official Animal Crossing website (for the US) isn’t even live yet.. it’s still a teaser site.

    As much as I dont want to believe it, I’m afraid the US wont be seeing the bundle 🙁

    Hopefully I’m proven wrong tomorrow during the Nintendo Direct!

    • Faedrah

      Does the UK 3DS allow for NA games on it? Or is it zoned much like it is between Asia and here?

      • Faedrah

        NM, found out that is a big fat no. 🙁 I really don’t want to have to spend the extra hundred to get it. Oh the woes!

  • IcarusGamer

    I know I have a 3DS, but I really hope they release it for others that don’t have a 3DS and really love AC

  • Kaiaa

    I don’t like the idea of trading in my 3DS but if this bundle came out, I would probably go for it!

  • kt

    wish it was coming to Australia just bought a DS especially for this game, would have loved to have got the game offical/limited addition one!
