Some Japanese players have some found some interesting glitches in Animal Crossing: New Leaf that allow you to glitch yourself into areas you’re usually unable to walk around in. Some examples include parts of the train track, red bridge, and the river. Check them out in the video below!

The 38 minute long video shows a variety of glitches but if you don’t have the patience to watch the entire video, here’s a few times you might want to take a look at:

  • 0:50 – Glitching on top of a house
  • 3:51 – Glitching on top of the message board to roam the train tracks and bridge
  • 9:41 – Glitching down to the waterfall and roaming the surrounding area
  • 11:50 – Glitching into the river and roaming the river to the edge of the map’s waterfall to then walk the edge of the map
  • 29:40 – Using the fishing rod to move off the visible map
  • 34:31 – Glitching inside of a house

What do you guys think of these glitches? Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments below. Personally, I hope these glitches remain and aren’t patched out. They’re fun and cause no harm. It’s not like they give you Bells or duplicate items!

(thanks to Jake. from our forums for finding this video)

  • Yuki

    cool I wonder if US is going to fix them if not imma so try this

  • Mia the Starr

    Personally I don’t really like to glitch I don’t really know why but I just don’t like to. :/

    • Scruffy1203

      Ya me too it just doesn’t seem right.

  • boo

    this is going to be help full for video editing
    if it dose not get patched up

  • Soggybons

    I don’t like it when people do stuff like this in animal crossing, it just seems to almost degrade the game.

    • Mia the Starr

      I agree. I just like to whatch people do it instead of me doing it.

    • Con Con

      It ruins the spirit of the game. If there’s no spirit why would you even play?

      • soggybons

        Exactly!!

    • Yuki

      I don’t see ruin spirit but if you guys don’t want to do it then dont but they look fun to try out I’m not going to cheat and I don’t really see how. they just look like fun to do but if you use hack tht really bad >:(

      Downgrade the game? I mean, if it were such a travesty toward the game, they would have been fixed before release. Sometimes they put in little things like this purposely just for fun. That’s all it is. Fun.

  • LaughXtreme

    They should release.a balcony DLC that you get when you walk inside certain furniture stores. Then no one would want to glitch.

    • Con Con

      I don’t even know where to start interpreting that.

      • Sinistrum

        Maybe he was starting to type in a sentence, then he was eaten by the dog displayed as his avatar and in the course of events the dog finished the sentenced for him.

          The likely scenario. o_O

          • Mia the Starr

            HAHAHAHAHA true

        • Yuki

          lol XD

    • freakintony

      i got what he was saying.

  • Louise

    That light switch thing is awesome!

  • Lautrec

    Wow I hope Nintedo arrests these guys doing stuff like this in a game is allegal You better delete this post or else your an accomplise to them Glitchers ruin everything

    • Bean Bucket

      Your right. Nintendo should find out who glitches and not let them buy the game!

    • Caleb

      Lol. That’s all I can say. Lol.

  • Haley

    Meh, glitches can be interesting sometimes. Having them go back and fix them will just add more time to the amount of time we have to wait for the game. If you don’t like glitching then just don’t try it, it’s as simple as that, really. These glitches don’t harm the game and they don’t give any players specific advantages so I really don’t see what’s wrong with them.

    • Yuki

      yea I really agree with you imma try them out for fun I don’t see wat bad only hacking like getting a Million Bells in one day by using hacking system is very bad tht ruin it

  • Bloop

    Allegal? What’s that?

  • -.-

    it isnt illegal, these people found bugs in the game so they recorded it. this isnt even a glitch that ruins the play in the game so Nintendo wont arrest them nor could they arrest them in the first place.

    I actually have a fear of glitches. Watching others do it is fine but when it happens to me, especially glitches that take me out of the map completely, I nope my way out of everything

      I used to love wall jumping in World of Warcraft (used to you could find a nice crevice, and mount at the same instant you jump and clip through a wall). You could then run around outside of the area you were supposed to be in, usually getting to see some really cool stuff that the devs left in because “no one would see them”. There were hidden shrines and memorials to friends and family members, there was the famous Karazhan Krypts (which finally got opened up to Rogues) that were just awesome to explore, and even entire zones that were partially completed but not officially included.

      Its a shame they fixed those.

  • Pringlespet

    Then don’t watch the freaking video.

  • Pringlespet

    SAME, MOCKING BIRD. SAME. And seriously, if you don’t like the glitch, why watch the video?

  • anonamousguy555

    My game glitch isn’t much fun… As mayor, I went in town hall yesterday and asked to do a public works project. When the list came up, there were only 4 items on it. There had been about 34. They are all gone except for the reset center and three options for town hall. Since then, neighbors have told me about a new project they wanted done in town and the new suggestions do not appear on the list. After about two months of game play and whipping my town into shape, my game is stuck. Anyone else experience this?

    • MayorTrick

      That just means you’ve maxed out your Public Works projects at 30. Delete one project and the list will come back.
