I finally got my 3DS XL and Animal Crossing New Leaf, I got the white 3ds XL and bought the boxed game cartridge. It was really hard to find this game as almost everywhere I checked was sold out and I managed to get the last copy that the store had.
After inserting the game cartridge I had to do a quick update which was included with the game but it didn’t take long to start playing. The game looks great in 3d and the 3d actually absorbs you more into the game. Yes it can give you a headache at first but I think it just takes some time to get used to it. The game starts out with all the questions about you as expected but once you have your tent site setup for your future house all the fun can begin. I’ve read how addictive this game can be so I hope it lives up to expectations.
Apparently you can take screenshots by pressing the left and right shoulder buttons at the same time and your screens will be saved to your device or SD card, I plan to post these in the future.
More about my animal crossing experience to come and so far I am really impressed with the 3DS XL. This is my first time ever playing one and I’m starting to think that buying a few of these might be a better multi-player solution then a new game console.
