HAPPY DAYS ON NINTENDO 3DS WITH ANIMAL CROSSING: HAPPY HOME DESIGNER
Key 2015 title accompanied by new hardware bundle, Cover Plates and amiibo cards
28th July, 2015 – To celebrate the launch of Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on 3rd October, Nintendo Australia is launching a range of new products – including an all-new hardware bundle – to give fans of the series and new players alike a variety of options to enjoy a one-of-a-kind handheld gaming experience that only Nintendo offers.
From 3rd October, Animal Crossing fans with a penchant for interior or exterior design can go all out with Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. Join the Nook’s Homes family business and make hundreds of your favourite animals happy by designing their dream home – some might even ask you to spruce up their garden! Go beyond home decor and try your hand at bigger projects like a school or a café and assign unexpected roles to some of your favourite animal friends.
At launch, a limited number of copies of the game sold in stores will come with one special amiibo card that allows the player to call up the card’s character and let their imagination run wild designing a house for them. What kind of home would you build for Tom Nook or Isabelle? Additional amiibo cards will be sold separately in packs of three. Out of these three, one card will always be a special amiibo card, meaning it features a character whose house you won’t be able to build without using its amiibo card. Each card can be used across multiple copies of the game, so they’re perfect for collecting and trading with friends.
Owners of New Nintendo 3DS or New Nintendo 3DS XL systems can tap the amiibo card to the NFC area on the bottom screen, while owners of original Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL or Nintendo 2DS systems can purchase the NFC Reader/Writer accessory to enjoy amiibo functionality in compatible software.
