Game Overview

Animal Crossing: New Leaf is a life simulation video game developed by Nintendo EAD exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS.  It is the latest installment in the Animal Crossing series - games in which players live out life in a rural village populated with anthropomorphic animals.

In New Leaf, players will control the mayor of an animal village and contains many new features. Players begin by living in a tent that will eventually be upgraded and expanded. Customization of the character's appearance and furnishings has been enhanced and players may visit each others towns using the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection.

As of June 30th 2018, New Leaf is now
the best-selling AC game with sales of
11.78 million.

11.23m... Less than one million of Wild
World sales. Doesn't look like it will
make it but perhaps the android/ios game
will give New Leaf sales a small boost
while people wait for a Switch version
to drop. It'll be interesting to see
if it can somehow overtake Wild World

I guess I was pessimistic about this

Can't believe it has been since 2013
(NA) since this dropped. It is about
time a true AC is put on the Switch.
They are probably just trying to get a
mobile f2p iOS and Andriod version out
first to draw attraction or launch
around same time. Here is hoping there
is no micro transactions in the Switch
