The fabled Pikmin hat, now available in North America!

It’s been a mere week since Nintendo of America started presenting Animal Crossing: City Folk players with gifts, even though other areas of the world have been receiving them for months already. And it’s only been a day since I made mention of our lack of having a Pikmin hat!

Well, cheer up Animal Crossing: City Folk lovers, as your red Pikmin hat should be waiting outside your house in Pete’s mailbag. Likely in honor of the New Play Control Pikmin released on March 9 in NA, Nintendo decided to share the love.

Upon signing in, Pete will once again greet you, and tell you that you have a special letter from Nintendo. At the time of this posting, the Animal Crossing: City Folk DLC hub hasn’t been updated yet, and if you don’t see Pete waiting for you when you log in, be sure to check the hub to make sure you’ve got your Wii set up to receive gifts!

Nintendo is definitely making up for the time when North America was sans DLC, and in my opinion, all is forgiven.
