Nintendo Open Animal Crossing: New Leaf Tumblr Blog

Further taking advantage of the game’s social nature, Nintendo have opened an official Animal Crossing: New Leaf Tumblr blog. You can access it here.


Like most Tumblrs, it consists entirely of Animal Crossing images—or in this case, user-submitted screenshots sent in via the Nintendo 3DS screenshot sharing tool, which now supports a number of other games as well.


Animal Crossing being the social game it is, this makes complete sense to help generate word of mouth. One only wishes that such a strategy had been devised sooner, back when Style Savvy: Trendsetters was released last year.

    There are so may great unofficial Tumblrs focused on AC right now that I don’t really see the need for this… Besides, one of my favorite parts about Tumblr is being able to interact personally with the people who make the blogs. With official ones, you rarely ever hear from the person/people who maintain it.

    • I agree though I can understand it to a point. Another way to put themselves in the community and get word out of official announcements, Maybe have contests or giveaways, things of that nature. The part where is says “Check back often to see if your town is featured and for other updates” Has me thinking that’s what they might plan doing.

    It’s a shame more people weren’t willing to become virtual fashonistas. Because honey my diva looks fab.

    Seriously though Trendesetters is wonderful and actually in many ways similar to Animal Crossing it’s shame people haven’t embraced it the same way they have with New Leaf.
