Animal Crossing New Leaf

It's been a long time coming but Animal Crossing: New Leaf is out right now in both North America and Europe and it's not the only piece of software Nintendo has launched on the 3DS this week.

The Nintendo 3DS Image Share is now available for players to use in the game, enabling them to share the goings on in their town with the world.

First of all you can take screenshots in the game by pressing L and R together allowing you to capture whichever moment you wish to immortalise forever. Next you open up the Internet Browser from the Home Menu and head on over to From there you log in to your Twitter or Tumblr account, select the image you want to share, add a lovely little caption and hit "Post". That's all there is to it.

You can also access the Image Share site by using a QR code, which can be found here. Bookmarking the URL might be a handy little tip as well, that way you can simply access it through your favourites.

How are you finding this feature? Let us know in the comment section below and send us some of your photos using the @nintendolife handle. We'd love to see what you're all getting up to!
