  • Celebrate in Animal Crossing flamenco-style!


    21/04/2009

    Join the celebrations for Feria de Abril in the south of Spain by adding a touch of flamenco to your outfit! For ten days, (from April 24-May 3), you can pick up a flamenco hat or flamenco dress in Animal Crossing: Let's Go to the City for Wii. You acquire them in slightly different ways though, so make sure to read the instructions! Olé!

    If you have your Wii connected to the Internet, you’re well on your way to receiving your flamenco items! Read the tutorial below to find out how you can ensure you get your hands on these exclusive gifts.

    Obtaining the Special Items

    Flamenco Dress
    In this instance, you will be able to obtain the flamenco dress first. However, you won't receive a letter in your mailbox as with other special items. Instead, you'll receive your flamenco dress from Wendell as his latest design creation. Please note the following points:

    • Wendell will be waiting outside your house with the flamenco dress design creation.
    • The first time you switch on the game from April 24, you must ensure you go and speak to Wendell before switching the game off again.
    • After switching your game on, you must go and speak to Wendell before 6am.
    • If you don’t go and meet Wendell the first time you switch on the game from April 24, or if you wait until after 6am, you will not be able to receive the flamenco dress design from Wendell.
    • We recommend you make sure you have a space in your design collection in advance, in order to accept the flamenco dress design from Wendell.


    Flamenco Hat
    You receive the flamenco hat via a letter in your mailbox as with other items. You can receive this item throughout the period April 24-May 3.
    Please note: If you receive the flamenco dress first, you must restart Animal Crossing: Let's Go to the City in order to then receive the letter with the flamenco hat attached.

    In order to receive special items from Nintendo, you need a Wii console connected to the internet, with WiiConnect24 turned on.

     

    You also need to ensure that the WiiConnect24 settings in Animal Crossing: Let's Go To The City allow communication with other users. Please follow the instructions below to ensure that you will be able to receive the special items.

    • Rover will only appear to speak with the first player in the village to go the city.
    • If user-to-user communication is restricted in the Parental Controls settings of your Wii console, you will be unable to participate in this offer.
    • Each player can only download these special items once.
    • Please note that you will be unable to receive letters while the gate is left open - for instance, when visiting friends in other villages via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.
    • Even if your Wii console is turned off and is in Standby Mode, you will still be able to receive letters.
    • If you turn off your Wii console and remove the plug from the socket, you will be unable to receive letters.
    • If you are using the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector, please ensure that the computer it is connected to is switched on.
    • Please be aware that there may be some delay in receiving letters.

    What is WiiConnect24?

    WiiConnect24 is a service that keeps your Wii console connected to the Internet 24 hours a day, even if the console is in Standby Mode. This allows you to receive Channel data and messages from friends and family at any time.
