UK listing for Animal Crossing themed 3DS hardware appears... and then vanishes

Publish date:

Nintendo appears to be on the verge of releasing a brand new 3DS SKU in the UK.

Joystiq says that retailer ShopTo was yesterday carrying a listing for the Animal Crossing: New Leaf 3DS XL bundle that was previously released in Japan.

The SKU reportedly contained the patterned 3DS (as pictured above) and a 4GB SD card. It was on sale for 190.

The listing has since been removed.

Nintendo has scheduled a Nintendo Direct broadcast for tomorrow. Odds on the new hardware being revealed then?

Animal Crossing: New Leaf is due out in the UK on June 14th.
