I loved the original Animal Crossing back in 2002, played some of its sequel Wild World on the Nintendo DS, and was disappointed by City Folk on the Wii. Now I’m playing Animal Crossing New Leaf on the Nintendo 3DS, bringing you what is probably our most nascent First Opinion yet.
Nintendo has opted to release a new handheld model, and I have to say that I’m a little shocked. The Nintendo 2DS is a non-3D, slab-style version of their existing clamshell 3D-capable model.
