Stability Software Update coming to Japan and South Korea for Animal Crossing: New Leaf

7 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.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf was finally given a release date for North America and Europe a few weeks ago but until now the official Australian date was in question. However, Nintendo of Australia has updated their website to state that New Leaf is coming to the country on June 15th. (and New Zealand)

We have nearly every major region covered with an official release date now! I think that’s something to celebrate considering how long it’s been. As a reminder, New Leaf releases on June 9th in North America and June 14th in Europe.
