Some Best Buy stores break street date, sell Animal Crossing New Leaf early!

So if you want to buy a new copy of Animal Crossing New Leaf a few days before its official release date, and happen to live in the Chicago area, now’s your chance!  According to Technology Tell, the Best Buy in Arlington Height (on Rand Road) seems to have the game in early and is selling them prior to the official US release date.

Best Buy Animal Crossing New Leaf

Above: While it’s wrongly categorised, it seems like this Best Buy is selling Animal Crossing New Leaf a few days early for whatever reason.

Is this the only shop doing this?  Hard to tell, the article only gives this one example.  But they do recommend calling up various other Best Buy stores and seeing if any of the others have the game on sale early, so I guess it’s worth a try if you live in a place with one nearby and want to see if you can get the game a few days before everyone else.

So yeah, just a useful heads up for any Animal Crossing fans over there in the US. Do you plan to head out and see if you can get the game early by looking in Best Buy?

They probably shelved it thinking it was the DS version would be my guess.

Just letting anyone in the area know, I went to this particular store yesterday after seeing this image online and I was told that they made a mistake putting it out so they took it off the shelves. Their system wouldn’t allow it to be purchased before Sunday either.

Yeah, I’ve been playing this game since last Sunday – Lemme tell you it’s worth getting. Just… don’t go online before June 9.

Region Locked. You can’t play the japanese game on a US 3DS.

That said, they would only care if it was piracy.
