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.

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

to drop. It'll be interesting to see
if it can somehow overtake Wild World

Can't believe it has been since 2013

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
Salnax (on 15 August 2017)
This should break 10 million by 2018,
giving the 3DS eight such games. Heck,
it's already the biggest 3DS game
worldwide that isn't Mario or Pokemon.
I can't imagine the Switch iteration
being anything less than a system
