Review 1 for Nintendo 3DS XL with Animal Crossing: A New Leaf
YES! YAY NINTENDO OF AMERICA!
Location: Riverside, CA
I saw this when it released in Japan and almost died of jealousy. Today we come to find out that it is coming to America too! I immediately ran to my gamestop to upgrade my copy of the game to this beauty! I plan on trading in games to make it F_R_E_E! (except for the $25 I put down of course). My life is happiness right now, because of this.

m21345: I've seen SD cards with Fire Emblem for sale second-hand, perhaps you can simply take the SD card out and trade it/give it to a friend who wants a digital copy, and buy yourself a physical copy when you buy the bundle? Either way this is a game worth owning digitally. Convenience for playing it every day.

Knew something like this would happen. I want a white 3DS so bad but want a physical copy of the game. What should I do?
Review 2 for Nintendo 3DS XL with Animal Crossing: A New Leaf
For Those Who Love Hard Copies
I know a LOT of people who value having a hard-copy of a game, whether for owning in a collection, or for the possibility to trade back into GameStop for future purchases. However, there are benefits to owning this bundle with a digital version of the game - primarily, Animal Crossing: New Leaf is with you regardless of any other game in your system! I am myself a collector of games, but have realized that just as a Steam library can be robust, but not tangible, digital games can be equally as enjoyable. Being able to StreetPass all the time with -multiple-games is worth the cost of not having the game physically.

iChupacabra, you a one of those people that are advertising with a lack of knowledge, like saying buy a 3ds over Vita because 3ds is portable... You automatically StreetPass if there is save data on the 3DS, & StreetPass in enabled. It doesn't require the game itself to be installed... I REALLY wanna buy THIS though!!!

I've been hesitant about making the decision to purchase a 3DS system for awhile now, except for wanting to play Zelda: Ocarina of Time again. This however made up my mind for me - Animal Crossing is my favorite game (Gamecube version is STILL the best) - and to have a special XL version of the 3DS dedicated to the continuation of the AC series, how could I pass this up? Can't wait for June 9th!

I NEED IT
Location: Boynton Beach, FL
I preordered this and I'm so excited for it. This is my whole reason for wanting a 3DS and the special edition is just so adorable. I love that the game is already installed too. It can't come sooner D:

More for us!
Absolutely preordering tomorrow! Some people keep complaining that it looks like a Pop Tart, but i just happen to love Animal Crossing AND Pop Tarts! I'm a little nervous about the digital download, because i'm afraid of it randomly glitching and deleting my entire file... So maybe i'll buy the actual copy too. :)

Review 7 for Nintendo 3DS XL with Animal Crossing: A New Leaf
The moment this bundle was announced in Japan, I was dying to get it over in the US! Luckily, they did and I pre-ordered it the day they announced it! Just a heads up for everyone who think they digital copy will go corrupt or something, I have many friends who digital 3DS games and they have had no problems with their copies, there is no lag, no corrupt data, anything. I think digital copies have just been blown out of proportion. That's my 2 cents so for anyone wavering about this bundle because of the digital copy, just out your worries aside and go for it.

Review 8 for Nintendo 3DS XL with Animal Crossing: A New Leaf
Location: Terre Haute, Indiana
I'm so glad they are finally coming out with this special pack! Even though the design isn't amazing I'm still glad its coming! But what really makes me upset is that the game is downloaded! I'm a very avid game collector and I was really hoping it was gonna be a phisical copy, I guess I'll be wasting 40 bucks!

I was so envious when I saw that Japan got this! I honestly didn't think we'd get it, but we will! I have already pre-ordered it AND my physical copy of the game, so it looks like I will have two copies. Cannot wait! June is slowly inching its way closer!

The paint design is so cute on the DS and I LOVE Animal Crossing sooo much! I heard about a long time ago but it was only out in Japan. Anyways I'm counting down the days and I'm definitely super pumped!!!!!!!!!

I was so excited when I found out that they were releasing a new Animal Crossing. I've been playing since the G.C. game, and the fact that they are bringing a lot of features back from previous games, plus adding a TON of details it will seem less of a tedious and repetitive game (even though we all love it so..) It really immerses you into the constant changing, real "daily life" feel to the Animal Crossing world. It will be more fun to complete goals and unlock new things. And this bundle is super cute, I can't wait to pick it up on June 9th!
Review 10 for Nintendo 3DS XL with Animal Crossing: A New Leaf
Location: Pikeville, KY
I'm very excited that Nintendo of America has started listening to their consumers as of late! This past Nintendo Direct has been the best we've had in quite some time! I purchased the Pikachu 3DS XL before, and I will definitely be owning this bundle!
Words cannot describe how excited I truly am, I've been a huge fan of this series since 2001 (I played the N64 version before the US release in 2002) and it's never disappointing me! As a 20 year old.. this really tickles me!

Everything about this is awesome! I can't wait to get mine. I have it pretty much pre-ordered! I love that the game is digital and not a hard copy! Keeps me from the temptation of selling the game. I'm so excited!

The 3DS XL system I've been waiting for
I saw this system at the beginning of the year and have been lusting for it since (I even emailed Nintendo America to see if we we getting it). I will be going to my GameStop and preordering it this weekend >_<

With 3ds XLs being 200 and animal crossing being 35, this is a good deal without a LE console. And, if this edition is anything like the Pikachu edition, definitely grab it while you can, because the price will raise! I definitely won't be missing it this time.
Review 12 for Nintendo 3DS XL with Animal Crossing: A New Leaf
Location: Luverne, MN
I'm happy that this bundle is coming to the US. Only thing I don't like is that the game is pre-loaded onto the system, wished they would have the cartridge instead. If you're someone who doesn't care about having a physical copy, this is for you.
Review 15 for Nintendo 3DS XL with Animal Crossing: A New Leaf
So much for comparisons!
Location: Raleigh, NC
Did you buy this product for yourself or someone else? For me
I got this system in the day of release in preparation for Animal Crossing: New Leaf expecting just another Nintendo handheld. What I was was an ergonomically fit console that no longer punished my hands with cramps if I spent long hours drawing with Colors! 3D or toiling away in a game. That being said, the quality is about the same as the original 3DS when it comes to visuals. Don't get me wrong, they are amazing visuals and the larger screen makes it feel like you are stepping into the world of the game you are playing... but it actually causes the resolution to suffer a little.
As for the limited edition coloring, I am very happy with what I got and opinions on the design are going to differ between people. But if you want a whole lot of cute and for people to know you're into Animal Crossing, this is totally worth getting.
Review 17 for Nintendo 3DS XL with Animal Crossing: A New Leaf
I think this bundle looks awsome but, there's a few reasons why i probely won't buy it. 1. If i buy this there will just be a Zelda 3DS XL this Holiday season because they showed a new Zelda game and it will be coming out at that time. 2. A lot of people complain about the game being preinstalled in the SD card i sort of don't like it but, it's not the biggest issue. And 3. i would rather wait a bit longer for a 3DS XL Bundle (Mainly because of reason 1) because it will just be forgotten by a bunch of people and if i try to resell it people won't buy it. Hope you liked the review. Peace Out.

I thought the same thing re: it being pre-installed on the sd card. From what I read, the game is not on the system until you go into the eshop & download it(which is sort of a drag but not). So it makes it easier to trade up, like myself, when I buy this bundle but want to keep all my old stuff. They had a special black zelda 3ds, once upon a time and they MAY release a special XL for the new Zelda game, but I personally have been waiting for this game and hoping a bundle would be released. I love my black 3ds now(w/ special KH:DDD case) & look forward to trading up too.
Review 18 for Nintendo 3DS XL with Animal Crossing: A New Leaf
I'm soooo excited ><
So, Animal Crossing being my favorite game series of all time, I was of course excited to see this game almost 3 WHOLE YEARS AGO D: I'm so excited that its finally winding down to release day! The 8 months wait has been a killer though, and seeing this bundle in Japan, I was soo jealous. But when I saw the Nintendo direct announcement of it in the US, I was overjoyed and just pre ordered it. I'm not TOO fond of the xl, but it is nice. I love the design, i think its very cute, and despite coming with a digital copy, I am still going to be buying a physical copy as well (I like to collect them, take my money video games) I can;t wait for this to show up at my house!

Review 20 for Nintendo 3DS XL with Animal Crossing: A New Leaf
Location: Luverne, MN
It's nice to see that we are getting special edition 3DS XLs. Anyways, I preordered this yesterday, and I cannot wait until the 9th of next month to play it. It will be nice to finally have an exclusive system for once, too. The last AC game I have played was City Folk, which when I first played, I played the game for about several hours straight. It's that addicting when you get into it. Now since you have a choice on a location for the town you want to be in and be able to place your house where you want, AC just got a ton better. I'm hoping to see a future AC release on the Wii U.
