LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 04/19/13 -- Imagine an idyllic town filled with animal friends where you can do almost anything you wish, where you can let your creativity run wild to customise your surroundings and at any time visit a tropical resort to play around in or just unwind... Welcome to the world of Animal Crossing: New Leaf, where you're the mayor of your own virtual town! Exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS family of consoles, here's a game you'll always want to carry with you, as real time affects the events, things to do and friends to meet, starting less than two months from now, on 14th June.
To celebrate the upcoming launch of this unique game, which has already taken Japan by storm, it was revealed in the latest Nintendo Direct presentation that the Special Edition Animal Crossing: New Leaf Nintendo 3DS XL will be coming to Europe as well. This special version of the Nintendo 3DS XL console features a colourful Animal Crossing-themed design and comes with the game itself pre-installed on the system.
Fans eager to find out more about the many features of the game will have plenty of opportunities to stay up-to-date. Nintendo of Europe recently launched an official Twitter account for Isabelle, one of the game's main characters, as she awaits the arrival of the new mayor in town, as well as an official Facebook page for Animal Crossing: New Leaf, featuring the latest news and fun facts about the game. The official website is also now available and already features plenty of information and a dedicated Iwata Asks interview for developer insight on the game.
Upon your arrival in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, you find yourself in a prestigious position when you're mistaken for the mayor. Thankfully, Isabelle is at hand to show you the ropes of running the town - a task that you can take to heart with as much effort or as little as you like. Decorate the town with public works and participate in their opening ceremonies. Open a club to party with friends into the night, a cafe to sip coffee in, or the Dream Spa to pay a dream visit to other player's towns from all over the world. As mayor you also have your say in how your town functions by way of ordinances: why not have the shops open later in the evening if you're a night owl? Or have a beautiful town where all the flowers never need watering?
Not only can you decree what is built in your town, you can also show off your style and creativity from what you wear to where you live. Be the most fashionable in town and buy the latest outfits and accessories at the shop, or create your own designs and customise your clothes, then share your favourite designs with friends or collect new ones via QR Codes. You may start off living in a tent but you'll soon be able to unleash your inner architect and expand to a house, and choose from a daily changing selection of house fixtures and fittings to eventually build your dream mansion. You can also become an interior decorator, with a huge array of different furniture and styles of wallpaper to suit your mood as the seasons change; as with your clothing you can apply your own designs to really make your home your own.
