The world of Animal Crossing: New Leaf on Nintendo 3DS is different for every player, and every choice made ensures that no two towns are the same! We love seeing how players have decorated, designed and themed their towns and houses, so to celebrate this aspect of the game we’re holding weekly competitions based on different themes!
We will announce the first weekly theme on Monday 22nd July via the official Animal Crossing UK Twitter account. If you want to join in, please ensure you are following @AC_Isabelle. For the next six weeks, a new theme will be tweeted every Monday at 4pm. To enter the competition, simply design your house or town (depending on the theme) around the theme specified, then tweet a picture of it using the Nintendo 3DS Image Share service. If you aren’t sure how to do this, you'll find full details at our Nintendo 3DS Image Share service info page.
The prizes will vary each week, and we will have some exclusive Animal Crossing prizes that you won’t find anywhere else! All our favourite entries from each week will also be uploaded to a Facebook album on the official Animal Crossing UK Facebook page.
Please note: You must include the correct weekly hashtag when you send your tweet or your entry will not be valid. All entries must be posted using the Nintendo 3DS Image Share service. The closing date for entries will be at 23:59 on the Sunday following each week’s announcement.
