Create dream homes, gorgeous gardens and a lively town square in Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, for Nintendo 3DS family systems!

As the latest employee of Nook’s Homes, a real estate agency ran by the one and only Tom Nook, it’s up to you to design wonderful homes to suit any animal. Chat with potential clients to find out what sort of pad they’d prefer, then put your decorating skills to the test and put together ideal abodes, inside and out. Do away with dreary décor and give each of your animal friends a place to call “home, sweet home!”

Pick a plot of land, customise the look of the house itself and even landscape the garden, then move inside to overhaul the interior however you like: use simple Touch Screen controls to place and move furniture wherever you want it, and customise the room from floor to ceiling. Let your imagination run wild and interpret each animal’s request however you see fit, but be sure to include any favourite items that they already own, too!

You’ll add more items to your collection every time you complete a request, giving you even more design possibilities for future projects. You can also use Play Coins to expand your horizons and uncover new aspects to home design: learn how to decorate ceilings, create your own patterns, customise furniture and more!

In addition to designing homes, co-ordinate with Isabelle to develop town facilities, such as schools, shops and restaurants. Apply your home design flair to town facilities and the town plaza will expand in no time. As the town plaza grows, more and more animals will appear outside Nook’s Homes, waiting for you to help them.

Show off the home designs you’re most proud of, or check out the competition and get inspired by other players’ efforts. You can take pictures of your designs at any time and share special moments with the entire world via social networks. With the Happy Home Network1, you can even upload your creations, check out other players’ designs and rate their work, or take part in design contests!

With Animal Crossing amiibo cards and amiibo figures (sold separately), you can connect directly to your favourite animal friends and design their homes without waiting for them to appear outside Nook’s Homes first. With special amiibo cards or amiibo figures, you can also design the homes of characters who don’t usually make requests, like Isabelle and K.K. You can even invite animals into any homes you’ve created or assign them roles in town facilities when you use an amiibo!

1Please note: the Happy Home Network is only available after a free software update.
