New Animal Crossing: New Leaf trailer promotes virtual tourism

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

A newly released trailer for Nintendo 3DS game Animal Crossing: New Leaf highlights the sundry activities players can enjoy while virtually vacationing: swimming, diving, fishing, shopping for souvenirs and assaulting small, gas-powered cars with toy hammers.

Pitched as a tourism video presented by the town mayor, the new Animal Crossing: New Leaf trailer highlights how these activities and others can be enjoyed solo or with friends.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf will be released for Nintendo 3DS on June 9 in North America. A hardware bundle featuring a special Nintendo 3DS XL will be available at launch for $219.99.
