From the Mayor’s Desk – Week 1

Last week I was given access to Nintendo’s Mayor Program. Along with a number of other gamers/bloggers, I was allowed an early look at upcoming 3DS life sim Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Moreover, we were all actively encouraged to continue too share our gameplay experiences–in stark contrast to most game’s strict embargoes regarding such coverage.

I’ve been updating my personal Twitter feed with daily snapshots of the goings-on in my Animal Crossing town, and henceforth I’ll be compiling those into this weekly feature.
