Animal Crossing: New Leaf is the version of Animal Crossing for the 3DS. It was released in Japan on November 8th, 2012 and in Korea on February 7th, 2013. It will be out June 9th for the US, June 14th for Europe, and June 15th for Australia.

While there is another topic for Animal Crossing in general, I felt making one dedicated to the new game was important due to a lot of the new features and all the exclusive items in the game. This game works through the 3DS friend codes so there aren't new friend codes for the game. If you want to play with someone, you do have to give out the friend code on your 3DS.

Important: The 3DS is region locked. If you want to play the Japanese or Korean version of the game, you would need a Japanese 3DS or a Korean 3DS respectively. This goes for North America and PAL as well.

So, why make a thread so early? Because of the exclusives. Each version has a few exclusive events and items. And not only the events themselves or the items given out the day of the event, but also items sold in the store leading up towards the event.

Event Exclusives: - Remember, these are just the exclusive events--not all the events in the game.
Spoiler: show

February 2nd - Groundhog's Day - Resetti Model
March 17th - Shamrock Day - Shamrock Hat

September 3rd - Grass Day

New Year's Eve - New Year's Countdown - New Year's Eve Noodles


So, if you'd be willing to let people come to your game for special events and/or items when you get the game... do post. I won't list anyone just yet (Unless you happen to have the Japanese or Korean game). Similarly, if you'd be willing to time travel around (for people to get items that have been missed), just make a note.

Mostly just hoping to get people prepared early on so nobody has to worry too much when the game officially comes out in the US :P

I've been reading a lot about the game and watching tons of game play videos so if anyone has a question about it, I could probably answer :3

I'm so unbelievably excited for this game. Animal Crossing on GC and Animal Crossing: Wild World took over my life when I first got them. I basically just bought a 3DS in preparation for this and theatrhythm. I hope it's as good as the hype has made it look!

Yeah :) This game is essentially WHY I got my 3DS at launch and it's been a long going on 3 years :P I've been watching/stalking videos and livestreams of the game since it came out in Japan so I definitely feel it's worth the hype. It's not perfect, but unlike City Folk, I feel the goods outweight the bads at every turn--the bad barely seems noticeable which just how much awesome is in this game.

I want it so badly since I love the animal crossing series.
Luckily it's around my birthday
This is one of the reasons I actually have my 3ds.
I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!!
This is the first animal crossing that I'm going to play.
I have a question Jen, What are the rare fish you can catch in New leaf?
Rare fish meaning Coelacanth,Stringfish from City folk

I believe both of those are back in New Leaf :) But yeah, if you use google translate here, all the fish that say "Low" are essentially the "rare" fish.

I can't wait for this game to come out!
[Lies, I can actually wait the necessary time]

I'm so glad the music this time around is something original, and not the boring soundtrack from WW/CF.
There's even a song [5pm] that sounds almost the same as the 5pm one from the gamecube game!

I actually got to hear the 1AM song earlier today and I think it's my favorite New Leaf song so far.

I know this site recently got the New Leaf hourly soundtrack if anyone wants to hear the songs :)

So glad the Australian release isn't far behind the US' release.
I also love the new soundtrack and everything aaah I'm so excite. I wish we got the special edition consoles like Japan, though.

Well, it went over to Korea so there's a chance it could come out here. They didn't announce the Fire Emblem bundle until pretty close to release afterall so...

To be honest, this is one of the main reasons (the other being my interest in Streetpass) that I got my 3DS on release. Only took 3 years since they announced it and over 2 years since I got my 3DS for it to come out :P

You should be able to already. I know Gamestop has had it listed for who knows how long as has Amazon. And the game does have a release date so...
