I won't be picking up a 3DS at least until next holiday season, so that gives me time to gauge the feedback about the game.

It does sound like a step up for the series. And I didn't own the previous portable instalment, so having that on the go with me would be pretty cool! But I felt a bit burnt by Animal Crossing: Let's go to the City. It wasn't a bad game, in fact it was a lovely game filled with that sweet AC charm I've come to expect. But second time around, I didn't find all the chores as interesting, to put it bluntly. Digging holes, catching butterflies and talking to villagers just wasn't as exciting (!), and I lost interest pretty quickly.

Anyway, complaints aside, I am interested by the mayor aspect to New Leaf and will probably pick it up if and when I get a 3DS.
