    Last week Nintendo sold 721,786 copies of the Nintendo 3DS-exclusive life-simulation game “Animal Crossing: New Leaf” in Japan, where it’s titled “Animal Forest: Jump Out”. It’s developed by the same creators as the previous DS & Wii versions. Making full use of the 3DS’ abilities, the game features much more customization around town on: your house’s walls & furniture, other people’s houses if you become town mayor, and even down to your character’s shirt, hat & accessories can all be changed at will. Oh and you can now swim in the ocean too!

    Here are the relaxing new Japanese Animal Crossing: New Leaf TV commercials.

    Note: The Animal Crossing 3DS release caused the 3DS (with 187,077 units) to outsell the PS Vita (with 4,021 units) by a margin of 47-to-1 in Japan!!

      Sad to see that there are no PC games listed in the N.A list, we’re a dying breed.
