Start receiving your free Animal Crossing: New Leaf download items!


Whether you’re a mayor or a regular citizen, players of Animal Crossing: New Leaf on Nintendo 3DS will be pleased to know that free downloadable content can make life even more enjoyable! Not only is getting hold of your free content incredibly easy, but new items will be made available on a regular basis to ensure that there’s always something new to discover in your town. 

There are two types of regularly updated free content that you can receive. To download the first, make sure you're online, and visit the post office on Main Street and talk to either Pelly or Phyllis, then select 'Ask about a present' from the menu. They'll check to see if you've got a gift waiting for you – if you do, it'll be delivered immediately!

Alternatively, the second type can be delivered to your mailbox directly from Pete the postman; simply play the game while your Nintendo 3DS system is connected to a wireless Internet connection and if an item is available, check the mailbox by your house to receive it (providing there’s space for Pete to deliver it!). Both types of free content offers different items, but each item is only available for a limited time… be sure to grab it all while you can!
