Animal Crossing New Leaf is a life simulation game by Nintendo. Players take control of a resident who is moving into a new town at first. But soon enough, the player will take on the new role of a mayor in a town full of cute and furry talking animals as well as the more familiar and famed Nintendo characters.
The game received a generally positive review from critics. IGN said that the game is “a truly magical game, one that you can easily expect to invest hundreds of hours in over the course of years.” That is why the game is still being played by both children and adult gamers today even when it has been released way back in November 2012. That, and the game continually adds new characters!

Nintendo has just released a new Animal Crossing New Leaf trailer to introduce the game’s newest addition. Meet Rilla, the Hello Kitty Gorilla and the newest peppy villager in town!
Watch the trailer here:
Prior to Rilla, the Animal Crossing New Leaf Welcome amiibo update had just been released a couple of weeks ago. The main game now adds support for all series Amiibo figures and cards. Fifty new Animal Crossing series Amiibo cards were launched last December 2. Now, a new Aamiibo friend, Rilla, has been added to the collection.
Players just need to tap and scan in these Amiibo characters to the game in order to invite to the town a special villager in the likes of Hello Kitty, Keroppi and Rilla, the Hello Kitty Gorilla. Players can invite these characters to a new RV campground. They can interact with them. These characters may even be asked to move into town. Their Sanrio-themed furniture can also be purchased.
Animal Crossing New Leaf and its Welcome Amiibo update are available for the Nintendo 3DS console. The Animal Crossing x Sanrio cards are available in Japan, Europe, and Australia. Nintendo has yet to announce its release in North America.
Moreover, the new Rilla Amiibo cards are sold as a full pack of all six in Europe, or exclusively as blind booster packs of two in Japan.
