There are cards for any occasion, as we hand over colourful folded pieces of card for Birthdays, Holidays, Get Well Soon messages and more. Nintendo of America seems to think 'New Year Cards' are also a thing, though the messages of positivity for the year ahead are a nice touch.

They're another little extra that's popped up on Play Nintendo, the official site for young gamers and - to an extent - their parents. The execution is a little clumsy as they are downloaded as a zip file - not the most intuitive means of delivery.

You can see them below, anyway. For this writer it's all about Harvey, the hippy dog from Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

In any case, it's a cute idea, and the site has all sorts of New Year bits and bobs for youngsters to look at.
