Join Nintendo of Canada for Officially Hosted Animal Crossing: New Leaf Meet-Ups

AC_enewsletter_052213_newleafNintendo of Canada has sent out an e-mail inviting players of Animal Crossing: New Leaf for the Nintendo 3DS to join them to celebrate the game’s launch at official meet-ups taking place from 1pm to 5pm on June 15th and 16th, and again on June 22nd and 23rd.

In addition to having the opportunity to StreetPass with other players to share your Happy Home Showcase, trade items, and play mini-games together, you’ll also be able to score some free swag from the Animal Crossing Ambassadors in attendance. The first 50 players at each meet-up just need to look for the people wearing the Animal Crossing-branded t-shirts, and they will be the recipients of this mysterious Animal Crossing momento. The Ambassadors will also be ready to talk about “everything you love” about Animal Crossing, too.

The following locations are where the meet-ups will be taking place:

Toronto @ Scarborough Town Centre
Toronto @ Wellesly Community Center (June 16th, 22nd and 23rd only)
Calgary @ Cardel Place (June 16th, 22nd and 23rd only)
Edmonton @ Mill Woods Rec Center(June 16th, 22nd and 23rd only)
Halifax @ Scotia Square
