We’re in the home stretch before Animal Crossing: New Leaf releases worldwide as early copies of the game were released to various press, reviewers, and bloggers today.

Some might think that May 1st is too early to be releasing early copies but remember that Animal Crossing is a game that needs a long period of time to truly enjoy. The last thing Nintendo would want is poor review scores due to a lack of time with the game.

Unfortunately, we were not fortunate enough to receive a copy. We will be posting any relevant news to the English version on the blog here though, such as newly revealed character and building names.

For now though, you can see that the English version is 6002 blocks for a download from the Nintendo eShop. Stay tuned for more.

It is sad that we won’t be able to get it till june 9th/14th /15th

But look on the bright side at least we will be able to know about upcoming things, furniture, new characters and clothes- maybe the game might go to some shows were if u go you might be able to test it.

I believe it’s around 30,000. So yeah you’d have more than enough.

It’s about 30,000; that’s about how many I’ve got free on my 3DS XL.

Hocotate! That’s from Pikmin! 😀 anyways though this is awesome, can’t wait to see what people will give it for a review, honestly i’m expecting 8s and 9s. But everyone has their own opinion of games so it could be even Higher!….or lower..

Unfair.

Actually, it is fair. When these people blog or make videos about a game, the interest in the game will go even higher. And then, you know what that means: more business! Everyone knows what comes last: MORE MONEY FOR NINTENDO!!! This is a basic cycle of games. They give them it early to sell off more copies of the game. I wish I was a blogger!

I can tell that this blog got those images from TheBitBlock, because Josh Thomas (owner of TheBitBlock) probably would name his town Hocotate, if you remember the first episode of his Video Journal of the Japanese Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and he’d most likely name his character Joshua, now that he has enough space. Just saying that’s what I think.

Anyways, I cannot wait until June 9th. This game will be so much fun.

I asked Josh from TheBitBlock and he said that the game took approximately thirty minutes to download. Just in case you wanted to know. 🙂

Thats a lot of time to wait for a game to download, so there has to be a lot of content on it

Who else agrees that Justin should get one? He’s a blogger, and has probably the biggest Animal Crossing New Leaf blog on the internet.

1 block is 128 kB, making 6002 blocks about 750 MB, for the curious.

The standard 2GB card Nintendo ships with the 3DS has 15625 blocks, if my math is right.
