Stand on benches in Animal Crossing: New Leaf with this glitch

9 years ago 7 Comments


Have you ever wanted to stand on a bench in Animal Crossing: New Leaf? Now you can! My friend John discovered this interesting glitch while he was sitting on a bench.

To experience it yourself, sit on a bench and when a mosquito is close to you, start spamming your emotions from Dr. Shrunk. If you time it correctly, you’ll find yourself standing on the bench once the mosquito bites you!

Thanks John!

Note: After looking this up, it seems some other players have discovered this as well. Still, it seems to be largely unknown so I hope it’s new to some of you. Have fun!

Stability Software Update coming to Japan and South Korea for Animal Crossing: New Leaf

9 years ago 17 Comments


If you’ve been playing the Japanese or Korean version of Animal Crossing: New Leaf, you may have noticed some bugs and glitches. These issues include freezes and crashes with the potential of save data corruption if it occurs while the game is saving. Some players have also discovered out of bound glitches such as walking on the train tracks.


Thankfully Nintendo has announced that a software update is coming in the near future. It’s not entirely clear yet exactly which issues will be fixed but the update is intended to improve the overall stability of the game. It could be glitches like the out of bound bugs or it could be freezing and crashing issues. No announcement was made of when to expect the update.

It can be assumed that the international versions of the game will include these fixes from the beginning as they are still 3 months away but it has not been confirmed by Nintendo of America or Nintendo of Europe.


Have you been playing either version of the game? Feel free to comment below and share any bugs or glitches that you have encountered during your playtime. We’d love to hear your experiences and may publish an article in the future about the issues.

Some hilarious glitches found in Animal Crossing: New Leaf

9 years ago 36 Comments

Some Japanese players have some found some interesting glitches in Animal Crossing: New Leaf that allow you to glitch yourself into areas you’re usually unable to walk around in. Some examples include parts of the train track, red bridge, and the river. Check them out in the video below!

The 38 minute long video shows a variety of glitches but if you don’t have the patience to watch the entire video, here’s a few times you might want to take a look at:

  • 0:50 – Glitching on top of a house
  • 3:51 – Glitching on top of the message board to roam the train tracks and bridge
  • 9:41 – Glitching down to the waterfall and roaming the surrounding area
  • 11:50 – Glitching into the river and roaming the river to the edge of the map’s waterfall to then walk the edge of the map
  • 29:40 – Using the fishing rod to move off the visible map
  • 34:31 – Glitching inside of a house

What do you guys think of these glitches? Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments below. Personally, I hope these glitches remain and aren’t patched out. They’re fun and cause no harm. It’s not like they give you Bells or duplicate items!
