Animal Crossing: New Leaf launching June 9 in North America

Animal Crossing: New Leaf, the latest game in the life simulation series, will launch June 9 in North America on Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo announced today during a Nintendo Direct presentation.

In this game, you're the boss — you won't be doing chores for Tom Nook, said Nintendo's Bill Trinen during the Nintendo Direct video. New customization options and online features are some of the highlights in New Leaf, and Trinen hinted at connectivity elements unique to the North American version of the game.

New Leaf, the franchise's first entry on 3DS, was released in Japan last November and tallied sales of 2 million copies there in less than two months. It launched in South Korea last week. It will be available June 14 in Europe.
