Nintendo has launched the full website for Animal Crossing: New Leaf in North America. There are still a few parts not quite opened but it’s much more expansive than the former teaser site. Either way, it’s looking quite shiny so take a look at it by following this link.
Here’s a short list of observations we’ve made so far from the website:
An event calendar may be revealed on Tuesday, May 14th
The Wealthy Town ordinance is titled Bell Boom in North America as well
Looks to be confirmed that North America will not be getting an pre-order bonus like Europe, it would be mentioned on here
Some have wondered whether our version of Animal Crossing: New Leaf would come preinstalled with the updated version or if it would arrive at a later date through a download.
Thankfully, we can confirm that at least the German game is running version 1.1 or higher and most likely the other localized games are as well.
The confirmation comes in the form of a video of the German game with the third Update option available on the main menu, an option introduced into the game with version 1.1 therefore indicating the game is running version 1.1 or higher.
Are you a Club Nintendo member in North America? You’ll be happy to know that Animal Crossing: New Leaf is now up for Intend to Buy on Club Nintendo NA!
Intend to Buy allows you to fill out a short survey prior to the game’s release in return for an extra 10 coins if you buy the game and register it later. I highly recommend doing it if you plan on purchasing Animal Crossing: New Leaf.
Nintendo just keeps on pumping out commercials for Animal Crossing: New Leaf in Japan, nearly 7 months later! This time around, the commercial seems to have more of a late spring/summer feel to it with the bug catching and fossils. Check it out below:
We should see English commercials coming in the next few weeks as we’re almost 30 days away from the worldwide launch.
We’ve got screenshots of eight new puns from the English version of Animal Crossing: New Leaf, thanks to Jon Wahlgren from over at Nintendo Life. I’m quite the fan of these, most notably the Crucian Carp.
Anyway, the rest of them are hidden after the break to avoid spoilers for those who are concerned about that. Enjoy!
Children’s Day is a Japanese holiday and event in Animal Crossing: New Leaf occurring on May 5th, part of the Golden Week in Japan. There are three opportunities with the Children’s Day event in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. They’re all after the break:
