In fact, it will be possible to invite as many as six new characters who, in addition to unlocking the series of items dedicated to them, will be able to settle on our islands. Thanks to the cards already usable in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, it will be possible to have Chai, √Čtoile, and other friendly inhabitants, as well as a set of special themed Animal Crossing items, including new and exclusive furniture.


More Custom Design Slots and Options

Custom Design Pro Editor + is definitely one of the main novelties of this update. By going to the Nook Point at the service center, it will in fact be possible to introduce a new feature that you will add to your Nook Phone: the expansion of slots for patterns: just like this, at great request by the community, Nintendo fulfills our desires, giving us extra space to create and preserve fantasies and designs. Specifically, the available space will be 100 slots, divided into two parts, 50 spaces for normal models and 50 for pro models. Being creative has never been so good!

Also regarding custom models, we have another novelty that introduces four custom designs in the Pro section. We can, in fact, create custom designs dedicated to umbrellas, uchiwa fans, flags and even develop a fantastic photo stand.

Another novelty, obtainable with Nook miles, immediately after updating, will be to have the possibility to bring the Custom Design Portal, which is normally only found in the Able Sisters' Shop, directly on your Nook Phone.
