So, we're still waiting on a release date for New Leaf...

Come the **** on NoA. Japan's had it for a couple months now. The times of taking half a year or more to localize should be over (as seen by Pokemon X and Pokemon Y). :/

Pokemon's probably being localized parallel to development (or at least, close to parallel) to cut the gap to zero, unlike every other game for every other platform out there.

That's the only real way of ensuring simultaneous launch in multiple regions, short of delaying a finished JP game while they localize it.

Animal Crossing, on the other hand, is probably being localized still, which means they had to finish the game first.
pardon if my posts suck, i post by tapping on the handset button on a one-way analog handset. i saw Hannibal Lecter do it.
