During yesterday’s Nintendo Direct online presentations, Animal Crossing: New Leaf was finally given release dates for North American and European consumers. The life simulation video game will release in North America on June 9th and in Europe on June 14th. The game’s North American box art, fortunately, looks similar to its Japanese box art. The cover art features vibrant colors and displays several characters, some of which are brand-new and some that are returning to the upcoming title. Animal Crossing: New Leaf is exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS portable game console.
