Video: Here Are Some Reasons to Love Animal Crossing: New Leaf, If You Need Them

No mention of silly hats, strangely

Earlier this summer one game seemed to be absolutely everywhere, and it didn't have any controversy or gun fights in sight, unless you count shooting balloons with a slingshot — Animal Crossing: New Leaf. For a good number of us it's probably still quite a distraction, as daily chores and tree shaking can be oddly compulsive.

It's been a commercial success around the world, and Nintendo UK recently confirmed that the title would remain a major part of its promotions for the 3DS and 2DS in the coming months, alongside big-hitting new arrivals such as Pokémon X & Y. The regional team seems to be making good on that plan, having just released a new trailer that's riffing on its "reasons to own a 3DS" line from earlier in the Summer, but this time showing off the cute and charming New Leaf instead.

Check it out below and let us know what you think. Aside from a shortage of humourous hats and outfits it seems to share the message well, and it's reminded us to pop into our towns for a quick visit at Halloween.
