Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer is arriving in Europe on 2nd October, and the region's subsidiary has now confirmed release details of various bundles and packs that'll give all 3DS owners a chance to get hold of the game and some amiibo cards.

The cards themselves are detailed a little, too. There'll be 'special amiibo cards' to unlock character's house that otherwise can't be designed in the game, and other cards with characters that can otherwise eventually be encountered. In terms of separate card packs, aside from bundles, each pack will have three cards - one will be a 'special' and the other two will be standard.

A range of bundles will be coming to Europe, and these are fundamentally the same as those coming to Japan this week. Details are below, and include options for the NFC reader / writer (which will also be sold separately) that supports amiibo on original 3DS systems.

  • New Nintendo 3DS + Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer Pack: a white New Nintendo 3DS system with a digital copy of Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, a unique set of cover plates and one special amiibo card
  • New Nintendo 3DS XL Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer Edition: a white New Nintendo 3DS XL system with a unique, game-themed cover design, a digital copy of Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer and one special amiibo card
  • Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer + NFC Reader/Writer Pack: a physical copy of the Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer game, one special amiibo card and the NFC Reader/Writer accessory
  • Standalone NFC Reader/ Writer accessory
  • New Nintendo 3DS cover plates No. 5 (featuring K.K. Slider), 6 (featuring Isabelle) and 27 (featuring a variety of animals from the series).
  • Series 1 Animal Crossing amiibo cards Pack: each pack contains 1 special amiibo card and 2 regular amiibo cards)

In addition, "a limited number" of physical game copies sold in stores at launch will also include one special amiibo card.

We're hopeful that stock of the cards and non-hardware bundles will be reasonable, not to mention the NFC accessory for those that aren't on the New Nintendo 3DS train.

Are you tempted by any of these options?
