Animal Crossing: Leaf Cup is a racing game for the Wii U. The game can be compared to the 2010 PlayStation 3 title ModNation Racers, as it focuses heavily on user-created content; specifically custom courses and karts. Animal Crossing: Leaf Cup continues the trend of Nintendo releasing games focusing on creativity; following the likes of Super Mario Maker, and Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer.


Similar to Nintendo's popular Mario Kart series, up to ten racers race on several courses, using various items to hinder other racers and help themselves. Unlike Mario Kart, however, Animal Crossing: Leaf Cup focuses heavily on designing the layouts of courses and combining pieces of karts in order to get the best stats.


Tom Nook hosts the first ever Leaf Cup, challenging towns all over the world to create courses up to the challenge. As the mayor of a village, you decide to create racecourses in and around your village.

Tom Nook is the owner of a home remodelling store called "Nook's Homes". Though kind enough to give new villagers houses, he is definitely not stingy when it comes to finances. Isabelle works as the secretary to a mayor, but is often known as the face of the village due to how much work she does behind the scenes. She definitely does not falter when it comes to working; even should she be exhausted. A rookie employee at Nook's Homes, Lottie has an eye for style. She has helped many people with both redecorating the interior of their homes, or even remodelling the exteriors.
