The previously announced Software Update for Animal Crossing: New Leaf is now available to download in Japan and South Korea. To download the update, simply head over to the Nintendo eShop. It’s highly recommended as online play will be disabled for those without the update.

According to Nintendo, the update did the following:

  • Fixed game error upon starting up the game
  • Fixed game crash after entering the Police Station
  • Added update option on the main menu for further updates without an eShop download

However, some additional fixes have been noticed by the community including a duplication glitch and a wall-clip glitch.

Sidenote: My apologies for the lack of articles lately, look out for another store post later this week!

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.
