Time to get excited. Animal Crossing: New Leaf doesn’t launch in the west until summer, but the sales in Japan for the title are red hot. Since it’s release, New Leaf has sold over 300,000 to date in the region alone (source, gematsu), showing that this follow-up is taking Japan by storm.
The 3DS is hitting it’s stride, as Luigi’s Mansion has been quite a success already for Nintendo, and with much more coming to the platform later this year and E3 right around the corner, this will only improve over time. Animal Crossing: New Leaf hits the states on June 9th, so get your schedules clear – as you have some serious Mayor work to do.
