Official Animal Crossing: New Leaf Meet Ups


Calling all Animal Crossing fans in Canada!

There’s going to be a Nintendo-hosted Animal Crossing Meet Up coming to your neighbourhood soon!

On JUNE 15th - 16th and JUNE 22nd - 23rd, we’ll be celebrating the launch of the new Animal Crossing: New Leaf on the Nintendo 3DS System, by facilitating Animal Crossing Meet Ups at multiple locations across Canada. Animal Crossing players are invited to bring their Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL systems with their Animal Crossing: New Leaf game to interact and share with other Animal Crossing fans.

This will also be a great opportunity to StreetPass other players for your Happy Home Showcase, trade items, and play mini-games with other Animal Crossing fans in your neighbourhood!

If you’ve always wanted to find a local Meet Up, this is the perfect time to meet some new Animal Crossing players in your area.

While there, be sure to look out for our Animal Crossing Ambassador wearing an branded T-shirt. To make the experience memorable, the Ambassador will be on hand to hand out a complimentary gift to the first 50 players to show up at each Meet-Up. They’ll also be there to discuss everything you love about Animal Crossing as well.

You’ll find our Animal Crossing Ambassadors holding a Meet Up at the following locations from 1:00PM – 5:00PM:
