Amazon has updated their listing for the Animal Crossing: New Leaf Prima Strategy Guide with a new cover art picture to replace the previous placeholder picture.

It’s very close to the official English box art for the game but I know some have been wondering what the real guide would look like. If you look closely, it almost appears as if the guide will be inside a hardcover holder. That’s just my poor speculation though.

Anyway, let us know in the comments below if you notice anything else. Here’s the listing on Amazon.

In celebration of Golden Week in Japan, Nintendo has announced that the Golden Watch item will be sent to Japanese players starting from April 26th through May 9th.

UPDATE: According to TheBigJC, the Golden Watch is actually already an item in the game and it is merely being sent out for free through in-game mail to celebrate Golden Week.
