So I know a lot of you have been asking about a guide book for Animal Crossing: New Leaf releasing overseas. Well, I have good news for you today! GameStop has posted a listing on their website of a strategy guide by Prima for Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

UPDATE: has posted their listing as well, at a discount price of $12.99 currently. Check it out here.

Furthermore, there is also a listing on for the guide. They give us a little more information on the guide including a page count of 512 plus a description. Here’s the full description from Amazon:

Animal Crossing: New Leaf: Prima Official Game Guide includes:

  • You’re the mayor – learn about changing shop hours, building facilities, adding new features to your town and more.
  • Discover something new every day – this guide will show you what special things you can do each day of the year, right down to the best time to do it so that you don’t miss a thing.
  • Detailed furniture catalog – see how to acquire each piece of furniture for customizing your house and each accessory for your character.
  • Checklists for everything – keep track of items you get with checklists that cover each type of collectable.
  • Smaller trim size for portability, over 400 pages of content and a dust jacket for protecting the guide.

About the game:

The charming and popular community building franchise is back for the fourth time with “Animal Crossing: New Leaf” for the Nintendo 3DS. Players live as characters in a rural village populated with anthropomorphic animals and can customize their personal appearances and living spaces, collect and barter items from around the village and socialize with fellow residents by playing games, sending letters or interacting on-line via Nintendo Wi-Fi. A new game mechanic lets players take on the role of Mayor, with the ability to customize other houses, fences, yards and more. The guide features tips on being the Mayor, a detailed furniture and accessories catalog and checklists that describe and keep track of every collectible.

The description says that it’s a “trim size for portability” which is great, but the page number may be a bit misleading then as the pages will be smaller. Anyway, do you plan on picking up the guide? Let us know in the comments below! I know I’ll be getting it.

Today we have two more gameplay videos of the English version of Animal Crossing: New Leaf once again from PAX East. To be quite honest, these videos are very similar to the previous video but I know many of you are hungry for videos so I’m posting them anyway.

The stock of items in the shops are different though, so that’s something. Also, the island gameplay will be slightly different of course. It’s also worth noting that in both of these videos the club was once again pronounced “Club LOL”. Take it as you will.
