It looks like 2013 is already shaping up to be a great year for Nintendo fans. Last month, Nintendo Direct showcased a bright future for Wii U but this week's 3DS broadcast was arguably even better. It's left me wanting sooooo many games. Funds permitting, here are some I'm really looking forward to buying.
1. Animal Crossing: New Leaf
At last, after all the waiting, we've finally got a UK release date locked down for the new Animal Crossing - June 14. A date conveniently near my birthday, so hopefully, that's one purchase sorted!
And although, right now, June might seem like a long way off - eager Animal Crossing fans will no doubt be thinking that it will have been worth the wait. Animal Crossing is hugely addictive and I find, even more so, when it's available on handheld. New features in New Leaf include allowing players to become Mayor of their new town and there are also lots more customisable opportunities than in previous games, one of my favourites being able to create detailed clothing designs.
You just need to take one look at the Miiverse to see how creative and talented Nintendo fans can be and so, as well as creating my own outfits, I'm really looking forward to seeing what amazing designs other people come up with. New Leaf has managed to stand out from the previous games with these new features but it still keep the essence of what we love about them.
