I preordered the game like a year or two ago and I don't plan to cancel that preorder, so I'll go retail.

I always buy retail. I love the new game smell when opening the box.

I did too once. Until I bought FarCry 3 and it smelled like a trash heap.

No, that's not commentary on the game. The inside of the case literally smelled like garbage.

With as much as a quarter of the sales in Japan digital, I wonder if we'll see NoA really push the digital version stateside. I know they tout the digital versions of retail releases, but I wonder if they'll be shouting from the mountains about the digital version of a New Leaf.

I'll definitely get this digitally if there is some sort of discount or promotion (for instance, if I can earn more Club Nintendo points for the downloadable version than the retail version).

Downloading, mostly as I've decided to go full digital on my 3DS and WiiU.

But even if I was sticking to cartridges, this would be a shoe in for download. It is the perfect handheld game, I'd always want it with me so I could play quick spurts.

I didn't even think about this till I was checking prices earlier but most retailers are taking pre-orders for $35 in the US (with no indication it being a special pre-order price). I wonder if Nintendo will go that route with the the digital version.

On a semi side, odd note...Gamestop is taking pre-orders for the LEGO Undercover game for a weirdly priced $33 US.

Anyone else notice the $34.99 price tag? Lol this is fine for me I'd rather pay $34.99 as opposed to $39.99. Not a big difference in price's but I'm still somewhat of a cheap skate when buying my video games lol. This is in the NA E-shop don't know about EU e-shop sorry...

I still have $43 in my little 3ds for AC so got more than enough for the game & tax. :)

Happy Gaming! (^_^)

my pre-order for my grandson at Gamestoppo was $35, so it seems to be the going price.

Sound's good to me. Maybe nintendo's doing this to get more people to play the series by lowering the price by a few dollars in my guess & to probably get new gamer's to the series. Either way love $34.99 price tag as opposed to $39.99 though lol. :D

There will be plenty of DLC on the way at that price... $10.90 for a hat pack anyone ;)

I wish a 3DS game would cost $35 in Australia! It's double that price. :( Hopefully Nintendo will drop it $60 so it will match retail prices. I'm definitely downloading this one. I recently downloaded Luigi's Mansion and decided to go all digital from here on.

i'm not yet ready to go all digital, but AC:NL is one that just seems to belong on the unit to be played whenever. but i think my grandson will be better with the retail version. it's good to have choices, i guess.

I'm getting retail. Also, this game is showing up as $34.99 on Gamestop's website as well as Amazon. Don't be fooled into thinking that price is some sort of eShop sale. (At least for NA, that is).

The new Donkey Kong game for 3DS is showing up at that same price on Amazon as well. Maybe all first-party 3DS games will be launching at that price beginning this summer?

@AbeVigoda That would be nice. 1/8 off isn't a huge loss for Nintendo, but it's still nice. $5 for DLC on new games.

I always go digital. I lost Super Mario 3D Land when it was still fairly new. I now only have the case, sooooo...
It really depends on your SD card space or how often you play it.
I have a 32GB SD card with 188,384 blocks left which has Super Mario 3D Land, New Super Mario Bros. 2, Mario Kart 7, Paper Mario Sticker Star, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Starfox 64 3D, tons of 3DS download games, GB games, and the ambassador games.
So ya, I would say digital.

EDIT: Oh ya, and I always have Tetris Axis in the card port, which isn't available on the eShop. It's the best Tetris game ever, IMO, BTW.

What if you broke or lost your 3DS? Wouldn't all your games be lost too? That's quite an investment to have just suddenly gone. Guard your handheld with your life!!!! :-P
