Nintendo World Store Will Transform for Animal Crossing: New Leaf

Animal Crossing fans must be shivering with excitement… we’re only a few days away from the release of Animal Crossing: New Leaf in North America (June 9th)—and to celebrate this exciting occasion, New York City’s Nintendo World Store is being transformed into the game’s town this Saturday, from 9am-1pm.

The store will hold a number of activities during these hours, including bug catching, digging for fossils, and fishing. Upon completion of various tasks, participants will be given an Animal Crossing button!

On the store’s second level, a DJ will spin tunes while you dance your heart out—and if you need to take a break, why not have your photo taken with a favourite character from the game? Uh, in cardboard cutout form, that is.

Want more? Fans who attend this event may have a chance to purchase the game a day early! The game will be available in limited quantities, as well as the special edition Nintendo 3DS XL Animal Crossing: New Leaf bundle. The first hundred customers who purchase either the game or the bundle will receive a 3DS skin with—what else?—an Animal Crossing theme.

Dave will tell you that he likes to play video games, this is in fact a lie. What he really likes to do is buy games, and leaving them sitting unopened on his shelf. He is a monster.
