    Yes. There will be midnight release. It even states this on the Eshop. "Animal Crossing New Leaf at Midnight"

    They advertise this as a (downloadable) midnight release in the eShop. I'm hoping it goes up at 9PM PST. I can picture it taking a few hours to download and I want to play it before daylight tomorrow.

    NOA is on PST, so when they say midnight, they probably mean midnight PST, which means 3 a.m. for us on EST.

    If you mean that a US on an Europe connection has to wait until the 14h, that isn't true. US ds in europe can download the game tonight.

    Heck, it doesn't even need a source. Most Nintendo eShop retail games have gone up at midnight EST, as New Leaf will be. Do a quick Google search and scroll through pages of evidence.

    Ok, fair enough. I admit I was wrong.

    Yep, all of the Nintendo eShop releases are EST Midnight. I probably have grabbed every single new Nintendo release in this manner so it would be crazy for me to stop now.

    Also I haven't played Animal Crossing since Gamecube so this should be a fun treat.
