Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer announced for 3DS

Nintendo has announced two brand-new Animal Crossing games: Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer and Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival.

Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer is exclusively for Nintendo 3DS and will arrive on 26 September.

Building on from the success of Animal Crossing New Leaf, Happy Home Designer allows you to create home for your Animal Crossing characters and their friends.

There looks to be brand-new locations including a school and fresh shops to explore in the new villages of Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer.

Although Nintendo didn’t go into too much detail, there seem to be special NFC cards that you can use to unlock new content in the game.

As for the new Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival game for Wii U, it’s all about amiibo – just as the title suggests.

Arriving sometime this holiday season, the game will arrive with a new range of Animal Crossing themed amigo.

The game centres around a series of mini-games that you can explore with your Animal Crossing amiibo and other characters in the game.

It’s not quite clear how many new Animal Crossing amiibo there will be, but we’re very intrigued as to how many we’ll be able to collect.
