All Articles: Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer
The Animal Crossing crew is back as the highlight of this week’s Nintendo Download is Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, which will be available to download through the 3DS eShop beginning tomorrow.
In Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, you’re the village’s best interior decorator and all your favorite Animal Crossing villagers have asked you to create new looks for the homes. If that’s not enough of a hook for you, Nintendo has also released a set of Amiibo Cards for Happy Home Designer that can be used to add new characters to the game. “Gotta catch ’em all” certainly takes on a new meaning with Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer.
Over on the Wii U, a number of “Nindies” can now be purchased through the Wii U eShop. Players can dig in to Extreme Exorcism, a supernatural single-screen arena fighter; Beatbuddy, an underwater musical platformer; Starwhal, a multiplayer game starring marine mammals in outer space; and Nova-111, a turn-based strategy game that uses “SCIENCE” as its hook.
More information about all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. (more…)
Sport fans should gather up their foam fingers and beer hats once more as the soccer shenanigans of FIFA 16 and the raucous roundball of NBA 2K16 will both arrive on store shelves this week for the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. Blood Bowl II, and its fantastical version of football, will be available for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
But if you’re a Lego fan, the release of Lego Dimensions is likely a much bigger deal this week. Mashing together more than a dozen media franchises, Lego Dimensions could very well be the ultimate Lego game. Developer TT Games has clearly come a long way since 2005’s Lego Star Wars. Sadly, Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker won’t be part of the magic, but characters from DC Comics, The Lord of the Rings, Scooby-Doo, The Simpsons, Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Doctor Who, and many, many others will appear in the PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, and Xbox One game.
Finally this week, 3DS owners will get to play decorator as Nintendo will release Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer for the handheld system. It will launch alongside a new range of Amiibo-powered cards and a New 3DS + Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer Bundle.
All of this week’s new releases are available in a handy list format after the break. (more…)
Nintendo’s New 3DS XL, which includes a second analog stick and built-in NFC support, received a North American launch in February. Fans were immediately smitten with the redesigned handheld, but were slightly disappointed that American gamers could only purchase the bulkier XL model and not the standard size New 3DS model.
That all changes this September with the release of the Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer system bundle on September 25. The package, which will retail for $219.99, includes the more compact New 3DS, a digital copy of the game, two cover plates, and one Amiibo Card.
In other 3DS news, Nintendo will release a “Hyrule Edition New 3DS XL” on October 30. Priced at $199.99, the handheld features a gold chassis with an intricate Hylian Crest design on the front. The handheld’s design is inspired by The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, which will be released on October 23, but it won’t include a copy of the game. For emphasis, let me repeat that… the “Hyrule Edition New 3DS XL” WILL NOT include a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes.
Worldwide, Nintendo has sold more than 53 million systems in the 3DS family of handhelds since it first became available in 2011. Even though most gamers already own one, a new design or two is never bad for Nintendo’s bottom line.
