I'm really looking forward to this game!!!! Only thing is.... Why did they cut out voice chat? It's gonna be so annoying to go back to typing :(

Did the game sell 2 million or 5 million? Both are impressive numbers!

Wild World sold over 5 million in Japan, while New Leaf has thus far sold over 2 million.

Nice to hear that they learned lessons, although I'd argue that Animal Crossing was always more suited to a handheld's pick up and play style than sitting down in front of a console, using the most awkward chat method known to man (really, WiiSpeak was just... why...).

I'm not worried about voice chat because I'm shy and I'm not good at talking to strangers using voice chat also i prefer the tying also i think it be bad idea having voice chat and someone screaming and shout and playing annoying music in the background. :(

We've been looking at lots of the content on YouTube for the Japanese version of AC:New Leaf - it's such a huge improvement on the Wii game and back on a handheld console where it works so much better. I can't see quite how VoiceChat would fit into the 3DS version so am happy to go back to the keyboard.

There's so much else to look forward to: DreamTime, town improvements (I really want a lighthouse), the new Gold/Silver/Bronze system for upgrading your shovel, fishing rod, etc. Not to mention swimming, visiting the island, all the new shops. You can customise your house, your town and [SPOILERS] you can change your eye colour not just your hair colour. And who wouldn't want to dress up as Santa and deliver presents to fellow villagers?!

I understand that localisation takes time, had hoped we might get our hands on AC:NL before now. But all in all, I think it will be truly worth the wait. :D

Voice chat would be good but text chat using the 3DS touchscreen will be far easier than using the Wii remote in Lets go to the City.

Really looking forward to this but not my most wanted game of 2013, Layton v Wright is still up top.
Sonic and Star Fox, the two greatest game series of them all.
Shadow the Hedgehog and Wolf O' Donnell FTW!!!
Crossover anyone?

Let's Go To The City was my first Animal Crossing game,and one of the most disappointing games I've ever played.

As long as they've learned that Animal tracks was a horrible horrible idea, then I'm happy!

I played Let's Go To The City and enjoyed it, however it wasn't as good as the Game Cube game. Am still playing Wild World but really want New Leaf sooner rather than later. :twisted:

I really hope that the grass doesn't disappear when walked over in New Leaf!

sorry to break it to you but it is, but on a better note it doesn't seem to be as quick depending on what type of town you chose. also it's supposed to be easier and quicker now to regrow it.
