Remember, retailers can be wrong and this is not an official confirmation. However, the bundle appearing 2 days before a 3DS Nintendo Direct is certainly suspicious. We’ll let you know if there’s any updates or listings from other retailers.
UPDATE: ShopTo has since removed the page from their website. Was it a mistake or did Nintendo tell them to take it down? Find out on the Nintendo Direct tomorrow I guess!
We’re now just 2 months away from Animal Crossing: New Leaf’s release in North America and fittingly so, the game is now appearing on the US eShop when you search for it. It’s not too exciting to see a listing but what’s interesting is the price.
The typical price for a new first party Nintendo 3DS game in the United States is $39.99, but Animal Crossing: New Leaf’s official price point appears to be $34.99 instead. We’ve seen some retailers drop their price to $34.99 lately, but it may actually be the standard price and not a discount.
I’m not really sure exactly why Nintendo has chosen to price New Leaf at $35 but I’m not complaining! A discount is always appreciated. Perhaps Nintendo is hoping to attract new players with a lower price point. What do you think the reason is? Leave us a comment below.

According to Bill Trinen in the latest Nintendo Direct, the North American version (and we assume Europe) of Animal Crossing: New Leaf will contain an exclusive feature.
He wasn’t quite willing to give up exactly what that feature might be but right after mentioning it, he talked about the online connectivity features in New Leaf so it may be something to do with that.
If I had to guess, I would say the feature might be the ability to use the StreetPass house sharing feature online as StreetPasses are more difficult to find outside of Japan. Of course, that’s just my speculation! Have an idea as to what it might be? Leave a comment below!
As most of you probably know by now, there is a special edition Animal Crossing 3DS XL/LL console bundle available in Japan at the moment. Much speculation has occurred lately as to whether the bundle will make it overseas to America and Europe. There’s some hope though… Read on to learn why I think so:
It’s been speculated for a while but now it’s been confirmed that Animal Crossing: New Leaf won’t be releasing in the first quarter of 2013. (January-March) Nintendo published a press release yesterday with the full Q1 lineup for North America on 3DS and Wii U with New Leaf missing entirely from the list.
