Hooray for South Korea! Animal Crossing: New Leaf is now available for purchase if you happen to live in South Korea. Now, the question is: Which region is going to get New Leaf next? Will it be North America or Europe? Or somewhere else? Vote in our latest poll on the sidebar!
Hopefully we will hear soon how the DLC is handled in Korea which should give us an idea of how it will handled everywhere else.
Nintendo posted their earnings report today and with that came the latest first-party launch schedule for all regions. I’ve posted the 3DS schedule for both America and Europe above, however you can find the full line-up at the end of the post.
This lines up pretty well with what we already knew so far although I can’t help laugh at “Early 2013” still on the American list.
One more interesting thing I noticed is that Europe is still calling it “Animal Crossing (temp.)” so we may see an alternative name to New Leaf in Europe. Just like how we had “City Folk” and “Let’s Go to the City” on the Wii.
Anyway, the full report can be found in the source link below including Wii U titles for all regions. Leave your comments below regarding this latest update!
