Do Nintendo release some games early?

My question is do Nintendo release certain games early, or do they wait till the release date. It's just I was wishing Animal Crossing New Leaf would be out in time for when I go on holiday. If they do release some games early, how many weeks in advance do they release them? What about the downloads on the e shop? If they don't release it early, I'll have to wait till 14th June.

No, theres no chance animal crossing will release early. Nintendo are the most strict of the big three with release dates. The only way you could get it early is if you knew a shady guy that works at gamestop and they sold you the game early

What sucks is it could have already been out but Nintendo chose to release it when it did to stagger the releases on the 3ds.

Yes, it's common practice for game companies to release demo products to popular reviewers to create hype for them.

Chances are that I will get my copy of Animal Crossing on the Friday before release instead of that Sunday, but the reason for that is simple: The retailer I have purchased from is not open on Sunday, and his policy is once a game arrives, he lets anyone who has paid for one pick the game up, street dates be damned.

I know of game stores that break street date regularly.

If you're going on holiday, can't you download it onto your 3ds through wifi while you're there? Just go to a cafe and do it.
Unless your going to the middle east or the desert. It should work.
