NINTENDO has announced its newest addition to the popular Animal Crossing series, Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

In Animal Crossing, the player assumes the role of a human recently moved to a small town populated by anthropomorphic characters (animals who walk, talk and act like humans) and interacts socially while collecting, shopping, and relaxing.

Animal crossing is a game designed for casual gamers with a need to explore, collect and relax.

The series' popularity stems from its easygoing and colorful nature.

The game is set to be released on the 9th of June for the Nintendo 3DS.
