Those die hards chomping at the bit for a release date for Animal Crossing: New Leaf, you can stop biting your nails in anxious anticipation. The game will launch on the 3DS on June 9, as announced during today’s Nintendo Direct video. Yay!

This game will feature the player acting as the mayor of the game’s town, and will feature a customizable house with a smaller loan this time around. Whatever that means, I’ve never actually played these games. It’s basically The Sims with better/cute characters, right?

Does this announcement finally justify your 3DS purchase, or does this still not make up for the lack of an Earthbound collection? Let us know in the comments!
