8 years ago 9 Comments


The previously announced Software Update for Animal Crossing: New Leaf is now available to download in Japan and South Korea. To download the update, simply head over to the Nintendo eShop. It’s highly recommended as online play will be disabled for those without the update.

According to Nintendo, the update did the following:

  • Fixed game error upon starting up the game
  • Fixed game crash after entering the Police Station
  • Added update option on the main menu for further updates without an eShop download

However, some additional fixes have been noticed by the community including a duplication glitch and a wall-clip glitch.

Sidenote: My apologies for the lack of articles lately, look out for another store post later this week!

We’re back with more pictures of the English Demo for Animal Crossing: New Leaf at SXSW Gaming! To avoid spamming the blog, this post will be updated throughout today and tomorrow with more pictures as we find them.

According to one poster, the demo wasn’t actually playable by visitors. It was live gameplay but controlled by a Nintendo rep. The rep did allow her to walk around a little bit when nobody was watching though.

As we reported earlier in the week, Nintendo is hosting an English demo for Animal Crossing: New Leaf at SXSW Gaming in Texas this weekend. Some readers have been asking for any screenshots or video from the event and we’re on the lookout.


Unfortunately, this is about all we have so far. It’s not much but you can see some of the Community Projects in English, nothing too unusual though.

If you’re at SXSW Gaming this weekend, please feel free to send us any new pictures or video from the English New Leaf demo if you get around to playing it! You can contact us at this page or tweet us at @AC3DSBlog.
