Animal Crossing: New Leaf, the 3DS iteration of the popular community and mortgage-payment simulator, is coming June 9. During today's Nintendo Direct, the company's Bill Trinen pointed out that as the mayor, you're no longer beholden to the raccoon slum lord Tom Nook, so this one will focus more on making the town as you like it.
Trinen also hinted at some sort of new feature, possibly tying into online functionality, but didn't share any more details. It seems New Leaf still has a few mysteries to uncover before its launch this summer.
