Get ready to enjoy a whole new life in a town shaped entirely by you as Animal Crossing: New Leaf comes to Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL. Continuing the much-loved freeform gameplay from previous Animal Crossing titles, Animal Crossing: New Leaf is a game without any restrictions. There are no goals, no story, not even an ending – instead, you can enjoy life in your new town in any way you choose. And since time in the game moves at the same pace as in the real world, every day brings new experiences! Your first steps in Animal Crossing: New Leaf come about by accident: shortly after arriving in town, a mix-up by Isabelle the town clerk sees you become the mayor! Although you can still do whatever you please, your new powers as mayor allow you to shape the town in any way you wish. From creating public works projects that add buildings, bridges and all kinds of decorative items to laying down ordinances (a fancy word for laws) that dictate how your town runs. You’ve now got the freedom to make the town of your dreams! Features: Play your way enjoy in-game life in real-time with no constraints on how you spend it!
