It was going to tough, if not impossible to beat PlayStation 3 game The Last of Us, which has seen critical acclaim since its release. Nintendo’s cute and cuddly Animal Crossing: New Leaf however,, managed to put up a seriously strong fight against the survival horror and hit the all formats chart only a place behind it at number two, making it the biggest Nintendo 3DS game launch since Mario Kart 7 and thus, the biggest 3DS launch for a non-Mario title.
Personally, I have noticed a huge jump in activity of my 3DS friend list since the game was released. Usually, I would see one or two people online, but that number has easily multiplied by an average of 6 – with the vast majority playing Animal Crossing.
Did you buy Animal Crossing: New Leaf? If so, did you get it as a cartridge or download? And are you enjoying it?
