The latest update on the release date of Animal Crossing: New Leaf in America and Europe

6 years ago 27 Comments


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!

Nintendo of Korea has just announced that Animal Crossing: New Leaf will be releasing in the country on Feburary 7th. Furthermore, South Korea will also be receiving the special edition Animal Crossing 3DS LL system bundle on Feburary 7th.

Honestly, this is pretty insulting to the rest of the world with no sign of the game coming any time before April in North America and Europe. Discuss away in the comments below!

The latest issue of Official Nintendo Magazine (UK) has a 4 page spread about Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Inside the spread, the game is listed as a Spring 2013 release date.

This is pretty in line with what we’ve heard previously (first half of 2013) but I know you guys are hungry for information so I’m posting this anyway. Stay tuned to the Blog for any further updates.

UPDATE: We’ve added a picture of the magazine page thanks to Zaoth from Reddit. (and E765 for notifying us)
