    1. Pokemon will always be the portable killer game, but I think Animal Crossing can come close second with this awesome version. Can’t wait it to come to America.

      1. Indeed good sir. The new mystery Dungeon for 3DS looks amazing and will sell a couple o million. But Once a new Full Pokemon game arrives for 3ds , that will inevitably be the 3ds’ highest selling , killer game.

        I stil have my teeth stuck into Black version 2 lol.

        For the near future , Animal crossing , Luigi’s mansion 2 , Castelvania LOS2 MOF , Monster hunter Ultimate are on My must have list.

  1. I thought a digital release of a game has an unlimited supply of units? How can digital be limited???

    1. I think he was referring to physical copies of the game sold at retail; hence Iwata notified his twitter followers of the 200,000 additional copies of Animal Crossing being sent out to Japanese retailers this week. Digital copies should never be sold out, i.e., there is an infinite supply of digital games.

  2. I always prefer physical copies of games, but I might have to download this one, as it will be nice to have available all the time. We shall see when the time comes I suppose. Yes, we shall see, indeed.

  3. It’s good to see that this series is doing so well. I always loved the Animal Crossing series. They’re so relaxing and enjoyable. I hope Nintendo releases a new special edition 3DS XL in North America before this Animal Crossing game comes out here. Because I made a vow to myself not to buy any 3DS games until I can get a special edition 3DS XL. I WANT THAT PIKACHU 3DS XL SOOOOOOOOO BAD!

  4. It’s a daaaamn shame they’re holding back on the Western release because of the Wuu coming out soon. Ah, well, maybe this will shorten the wait at least a little.

  5. I’m Japanese. Now in japan, there are a lot of people who can’t buy animal crossing. Those who can’t buy it are called animal crossing refugees. LOL All I can do is waiting for an additional shipment hitting the store shelves.
