Create dream homes, gorgeous gardens and a lively town square in Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, only 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 Miiverse and social networks. With the Happy Home Network*, 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!
Discover your inner designer and interact with your favourite Animal Crossing characters in a whole new way in Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer for Nintendo 3DS family systems!
*Please note: the Happy Home Network is only available after a free software update.
A Nintendo 3DS NFC Reader/Writer (sold separately) is required to use amiibo on Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL and Nintendo 2DS systems.
Please note: you can only appreciate the 3D effect of Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL, New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL on the system itself. Game visuals display in 2D on Nintendo 2DS. All screenshots and game footage on this site are captured in 2D mode.

You can connect directly to your favourite Animal Crossing friends with Animal Crossing amiibo cards and amiibo figures (sold separately). When you use an amiibo, you can design that animal’s home. You can even design the homes of characters that don’t usually make requests, such as K.K., with special amiibo cards or amiibo figures!
Once you’ve put together a project to be proud of, you can invite animals to hang out together in a house, or bring them into town facilities to assign them jobs. Think about each animal’s personality and work out where they’d be best suited: select a super school teacher, diligent doctor and more!
When animals from Animal Crossing amiibo get invited to look around other homes, they get inspired and remember the furniture, wallpaper and ornaments they see. If you use an amiibo of an animal who’s visited homes designed by other players, you might add items you’ve never seen before to your catalogue!
At launch, a limited number of copies of the game sold in stores will come with one special amiibo card. 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 amiibo 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. Simply tap amiibo to the NFC Reader/Writer and away you go!
Find out more about amiibo at our official amiibo website.
