Having taken Japan by storm, Animal Crossing: New Leaf is set to hit European shores on 14th June. The adorable life-simulator is sure to be a welcome addition to the 3DS library, with its addictive gameplay and cutesy characters appealing to gamers of varying ages.
Differing slightly from previous instalments, New Leaf sets the player in the shoes of the Mayor of the town. With the help of a companion, Isabelle, the player can choose to do as much or as little as they like in terms of running the town. It’s possible to open up new shops and amenities, which of course would mean attending the opening ceremonies and parties. Also, it’s possible to show off your creations with friends via StreetPass.
For hardcore fans, Nintendo have announced the release of an Animal Crossing themed 3DS XL, featuring a colourful design and the game built-in to the console.
