Animal Crossing: New Leaf may not be the freshest game in the world, but this week it's had a welcome revival courtesy of the extensive (and free) 'welcome amiibo' update. Keen to build on that momentum, Nintendo of America has released a small extra treat.
It's an Isabelle 3DS HOME Theme, which can be claimed for 100 Platinum Points; at the moment it's North America only.
Are any of you planning to pick this up?
My Nintendo rewards leave something to be desired..
Too bad NA still has the least Home themes available.
While Europe has around 500.
But Japan has over 1000...
Not fair :<
yipee! another worthless reward that does nothing to dissuade me from just letting my coins expire.
i got this and I think it's cute. Using it right now.
@JHDK I had no idea coins expired! I just checked and mine expire in January. I guess I'll get a game discount or this theme or something instead of nothing.
Nice! I like the idea of a plain green theme, but until now it's just been My Nintendo Link standing in for it. Isabelle is much better (still not Yoshi, but it'll do).
I download it, I like it. A nice change of pace from the Pokémon themes I normally use. Plus it's free.
Cute. Got it to keep my collection up to date.
Better than the "discounts." Guess I'll get it.
@YouSeemFRAZZLED Lucky Europe! As far as I can tell we didn't get that one, but that's cool some region did!
I won't be getting this since I'm not a big fan of Isabelle, but it's still nice to see another reward avaliable that's not a discount. Still waiting on a Luigi theme, Nintendo!
I miss Samus 3DS Home Theme in NA
Already grabbed it. Figured it beats letting my points expire. I have to admit though I would rather use my points towards virtual console titles rather then 3DS themes.
@wiggleronacid I also had no idea until I heard it from either Alex or NVC. It's a bummer.
System sold separately
And there I was thinking that there'd be a good reward... :/
Why not? I GOT NOTHIN' ELSE TO SPEND MY POINTS ON, AFTER ALL!
Wouldn't mind premium themes for gold coins, cause at this point I'd take an sti gold coin trade just to spend em on a freebie.
Might as well, it's not like there is anything else on MyNintendo.
I'll admit this is the nicest looking of the "My Nintendo" themes, just because of color co-ordination and a character render that looks good on it.
It'll probably still have that generic theme playing over it though.
Hope this comes to Europe too!
Is this an auto download or a code? My wife has a 3DS but never bothered with MyNintendo, I had tons of platinum coins last I checked but no 3DS. And I deleted Miitomo.
@RupeeClock Yep! It's still got that music. (Which, to be fair, is an okay song; just a little ridiculous to loop it over EVERY theme)
@rjejr It's a code; go liberate those platinum coins!
Better than Nothing.
My 3DS is older model. Any chance to access My Nintendo and how to do that ? Can I found from eshop menu ?
I guess I'll just spend all of my expiring points on worthless themes that I'll never use.
The furries will be pleased
Well at least it appeals to me. sigh Dont worry My Nintendo you'll get your push eventually
OMG, tx u nintendo, i'm so glad you added this... instead of, idk, GAMES!!! -_-
(and will we ever get the Samus Theme?)
That will fit my Animal Crossing: HHD N3DS perfectly...
well, except for the music, the only thing able to match that is a bunch of colorful clowns riding unicycles.
It's pretty hard to put Isabelle's face on something and not sell it, but this theme is... Well, it's not too bad. The music is a weird choice and they could have been a little more creative, but mreh. It beats a 15% discount I suppose...
Please please please release this in the EU - I absolutely have to have it on my screen. Oh my word I am so excited and have some coins to use up.
Depends on your region, I think. My Nintendo isn't available quite everywhere. You need a Nintendo Account too. These are accessed via a browser rather than on the 3DS itself.
Some people get round this by setting their 3DS's region to US and signing up for accounts that are US-based. That's okay as long as you don't have another account because then that would not be accessible.
You can set up My Nintendo and Nintendo Account without a 3DS, but it's more difficult to collect the coins, especially if you also don't have access to Miitomo. Also, it would be impossible to redeem any "Just for you" offers; you'd only be able to use the rewards that are codes.
It might be easier to just ask if anyone has a code that is spare for your region - PAL, NTSC, JAP.
Who knows, maybe all of the coins I have stockpiled will mean that I won't have to repurchase Link to the Past for the 13th time on my Switch...
I generally like the 3ds themes but I'll pass on this one.
I just buy all the themes because the only other item I don't own is the discount codes.
While I'm a sucker for 3DS themes, this one is very "meh." Save for Isabelle's face emblazoned on the top screen, the color choice is bland, the music is boring, and there's no detail happening in the background (except for 'My Nintendo' on the bottom screen, which they could've kept). I went ahead and cashed in some points to get it before they expire as this Isabelle one is the best of the lot I've seen.
got it because it was there, those 2000, 3000, 4000 whatever platinum points I don't even know, they aren't going to spend themselves
I want one
I want my Nintendo themes some more
