Review 1 for Animal Crossing: New Leaf
Can't Wait! Gonna Buy at Midnight on The eShop!
Location: Decatur, AL
I can't wait!! I've been saving for this since I heard about this!! This is my first Animal Crossing though, but it looks like there are a lot of tips and hints to get you through. If you're skeptical about getting this game, (Which I was) look at IGN's Animal Crossing: New Leaf's Wiki because it lists all the some of the features of the game. I'm sure that's enough to convince you to get it. If it's not though, Look at some of the reviews on the Japan Version. If the're in Japanese then use a program to translate it. The game was rated by many websites in Japan 39/40 or around that area. So check those out because That's what convinced me to buy it the minute it comes out. I hope you enjoy the game when it comes out and I hope you choose to buy it.
I am so excited for this game! Tortimer is NO LONGER the boss of you! A place YOU get to shape! And I'm really excited about how you can buy shoes and pants.And the best part of all... RESORT ISLAND!!!! Finally, a place where you can relax. And passing ordinances, a new feature to the game, is very cool. You can pass 1 ordinance that affects your game play! You can make shops open earlier or close later, or you can make it so your flowers wilt slower and there is less garbage and weeds, and finally, my favorite, you can pass one that makes getting bells easier!!
When I first noticed this game was coming out, I thought the human character models looked kinda wacky, but I've warmed up to them after a while. I don't see many problems with this game right now... save for the fact that (SPOILER maybe - I doubt it, but whatever) your character is supposed to be the mayor of this village, and it kinda feels like it'll sap the feeling of being just another simple villager in the middle of simple issues of the on-their-own crew you get bunched with. I'm doubtless I'll miss that. Maybe this change will be easily ignored. After all, I played the other games more so with friends, showing them my houses and all that fun. Either way, certainly getting this game.

I can't tell you how excited I am about this game.
Location: Atlanta, GA
I've only owned and played the first Animal Crossing, but I fell head over heels in love with that game. I may have missed out on the versions following that one, but I can't wait to get back into it with New Leaf, like the title says I will be starting out on a new leaf.
Animal Crossing may sound boring if you have never played it. But once you do its amost inposible to excape its charm! Animal Crossing rocks! First of all the game runs in real world time so if its midnight in real life it midnight in the game. Thay is lots to do. You can fish, catch bugs, dig, plant stuff, go shoping befriend NPCs creatate custome clothes and flags and in this game be the Mayor! Yay! Then you can go online and see your friends house and town thay have made its amazing! I heard this game may even have FREE DLC!!! Any way thay have added new places and broght back old once from past games so this game looks amazing! Its hard to expane but easy to enjoy. Please give this a try if you are looking for a game that is relaxing and enjoyible every day of your LIFE! I love the personality of Animal Crossing games! :):):)
The game is called "Animal Crossing", yet you play as the only human in the game. When will they let people create animal characters to play as? Say, I wanted to go around as a Panda... maybe a Wolf. Why can't I play as an animal? I played Wild World before, and enjoyed it. Sadly, I lost it, but I'm glad to know a new Animal Crossing is coming out, I'll definitely be getting it regardless.

Review 8 for Animal Crossing: New Leaf
I am so ready for this game!
I was already sold, but being able to dress as Link is icing on the cake. On top of that Wild World was already so much fun and I've been dying for a new portable animal crossing after the sort of lackluster City Folk on the Wii.
Review 9 for Animal Crossing: New Leaf

It's about time!
I have been waiting and waiting for a new animal crossing. My girlfriend and I are both big fans of the series and we are looking forward to getting two copies and playing together. The 3D looks great the graphics are fantastic and everything is even more customizable then before. Can't wait to get started hope to see you all there.
Man I am soo excited for this game! I am kind of happy that it is coming out in June. I want it sooner, but I get to enjoy it through out the summer. There are so many things different in this game than previous games, which I am happy about.

Review 14 for Animal Crossing: New Leaf
I was crying when I saw this trailer.
It's true. I cried when I saw this trailer. It looks like such a beautiful game. With all this call of duty nonsense, a nice game like this is superb. I love animal crossing, and I can't wait for this one.

Reason Why I got a 3DS!!
This is the reason why I got my 3ds when it first came out XD I thought this was coming out soon after but no. I'm so glad there is a real release date now. I just can't wait for this game. So many new and cool things were added that I wanted. Swimming, catching new things while swimming, going to the island again, customizing the outside of your house, as well as inside, customizing furniture, and many more.
Watching the new Nintendo Direct, Nintendo has announced a release date of June 9th, which is a Saturday. And if I know Nintendo, they are pretty good at keeping word of their release dates.
Even sites like IGN and Joystiq have confirmed this. So hopefully it's only a matter of time before Gamestop updates their release info. And for those curious, the official title is Animal Crossing New Leaf.

Review 18 for Animal Crossing: New Leaf
Location: Westfield, MA
Gamestop hasn't updated yet, but the official release date in June 9, 2013. This is going to be a great game, I like the ideas of the different cities you can visit. Along with the ability to be mayor will make this game the best yet.
Great game for beginners and fans of the series. This game will be the best. Though confused that GameStop has a different date for the game. Where Nintendo announced the game to be released for June 9th US and June 14th for EU. The game Animal Crossing New Leaf will be great in my opinion. I think it will be one of the best.

Review 20 for Animal Crossing: New Leaf
Release date and actual game name
The release date for the Animal Crossing 3DS game, called Animal Crossing: New Leaf, has been set at June 9th 2013. That puts it within the first half of 2013 like nintendo stated a couple months ago. Rumors are floating around that a special edition 3DS XL may be released here, as it was in Japan. Nintendo also stated that they are adding something to the Western release of the game that is not in any other version. Hope this helps everyone!
