streetpasshouse

Remember the exclusive Animal Crossing: New Leaf feature for North America and Europe that Nintendo teased back in February? It seems to have been revealed prematurely in the officially translated Iwata Asks released today.

In the Iwata Asks translated by both Nintendo of America and Nintendo of Europe, an Editor’s Note is included on the page where Kyogoku-san mentions the Happy Home Showcase area, which allows you to receive houses through the StreetPass feature.

Editor’s Note: In the North American version of the game, model homes created by Nintendo will also appear in the HH Showcase. These homes will be distributed via SpotPass.

Editor’s Note: In the European version of the game, model homes created by Nintendo will also appear in the HH Showcase. These homes will be distributed via SpotPass.

The Editor’s Note reveals that in the North American and European versions of the game, model homes created by Nintendo will be distributed using SpotPass and appear in your HH Showcase, in addition to the standard StreetPass houses.

It’s not quite as much as some speculated, such as receiving your friends homes through SpotPass, but it’s a good addition regardless. Of course, it’s still possible that such a feature will be revealed at a later date so stay tuned.

How do you guys feel about this feature? Is it a disappointment, or are you excited for it? Leave us a comment below with your opinion!

    It’s a bit dissapointing…I hope that maybe something else comes along the way.

  • sarahsokoolz

    It will fill up the HH Showcase area !! Unless there is like 1 spotpass a month !?

  • pocadotty

    I’m pretty satisfied with the game already; so I’m not disappointed. ^^ I don’t think it would be anything significant since Japan and Korea would probably rage, so it makes sense. Plus, IMO getting your friends’ houses over SpotPass is a bit unecessary, as you could StreetPass with them (if you live nearby), wifi with them, or visit their Dream Town.

    I’m also pretty happy with everything as it is, so this is just an extra little bonus. However, I would squeee for weeks if they released the LE 3DS XL. For weeks!

  • IcarusGamer

    I’m not disappointed with anything! I just can’t wait to lay my hands on a copy of the game^^

    • StarryACNL

      Me too

    • Paige Sherwood-Rice

      Same! AH 2 months 2 days for Europe

    • Silent

      Physical or digital?

  • Taygo

    Maybe Nintendo will make homes and we can get cool items!

    • Tom Nook

      I hope so. I would like to see cute looking items i could put in my house

    • Paige Sherwood-Rice

      Yeah that would be good, would you buy them?

  • Michael Bower

    the fact that we all have to wait 4 extra months is dissapointing

    it’s alright i suppose. i mean, it’s not like a lot of us will actually get street passes for this game. hell, i’ve only gotten one since i got my 3DS. and i live in a big city

    • skuzzie

      I can relate. I have never gotten anyone before and I live in a VERY small town. So small that it was called a village just a few years back and then they decided to change it. I’m not sure if I will ever have a streetpass.

  • Liselotte27

    I live in a relatively suburban area. I got my 3DS a few months ago, and I have run into about 25 people already. Take your 3DS to places with lots of crowds! Like a mall or a fair! It is so much fun! I can’t wait for this game!

  • Hannah

    I think this could actually be exciting if Nintendo sends us special items like the 7-11 set.

  • StarryACNL

    A little disappointing however its good that we are actually getting exclusive content- there might be something else?

  • http://www.facebook.com/nadia.gezichtboek Nadia Gezichtboek

    I am happy, it will not be so empty then.

    What is Spotpass?

    • Justin

      To put it simply, these houses will be distributed through the Internet.

  • Tom Nook

    I think it’s not that much of a feature, but hey, it’s still a feature. I think i’ll enjoy looking at the nintendo homes so that i can get inspiration for my house.

  • Sandra

    This is what I feel: “That’s it? Ok whatever… I can’t wait to blah blah blah new leaf.” Same old, this feature really won’t change anything…

    Cool I like it

  • LaughingDingo

    Well..at least the HRA Neighborhood won’t be empty. Disappointed they pushed the game so far back for this, though.

    Not the best feature, or what most of us were hoping for, but I for one am happy that I won’t have to worry about having one or two houses in my Happy Home Showcase for ages, just because I never really Streetpass anybody. I hope that Nintendo has more in stores for the North American and European releases.
