Our friends over at The Bit Block have done a quick video analysis of the latest magazine scans for Animal Crossing 3DS. You’ll find picnics, a coffee shop, the village tree and much more in these new scans!
As for the original scan images, you can find them below. If you can find higher resolution versions of these, please let me know.
Many of us have expected this for a while now but Nintendo of America has just confirmed via Twitter that Animal Crossing 3DS will be releasing in the first half of 2013 in the Americas. Meanwhile Japan will be getting the game on November 8th.
Furthermore, in their Animal Crossing tweet they specified first half of 2013 while for their Luigi’s Mansion (also releasing in 2013) tweet they specified first quarter of 2013.
Take it as you will but in my opinion this means a May or June release date rather than around March. Even if we won’t be getting the game soon, we will at least be getting lots of videos on the game leading up to the Japanese release.
Watch Iwata walk us through all the greatness of Animal Crossing 3DS in this 3 minute video from the August 29th Nintendo Direct! Unfortunately, it’s in Japanese. If you can translate this for the blog please contact me!
Oh yeah… we have an official release date for Japan now! November 8th. Save the date everyone!
In just one hour from this post the latest Nintendo Direct will be airing! Stay tuned for potential new screenshots and information on Animal Crossing 3DS.

Incase you were curious, Nintendo of America has confirmed to IGN that they will be not be hosting a corresponding Nintendo Direct tonight. That basically means don’t expect any details for North America tonight such as a release date. We’ll probably get a Japanese release date though.
