New Nintendo 3DS Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer Bundle Review ♡

I have been waiting months for Nintendo to announce the release of this faceplate/cover plate version of the new 3DS in America, and it finally happened! I pre-ordered it on GameStop right when I found out (end of August) that it would be released on September 25, 2015! But, it is selling on Amazon for $219.99. What made me even more excited was the fact that it was going to be an Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer bundle! ✨

IMG_9264The things included in this bundle are: the New Nintendo 3DS, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer game download code, two sets of Animal Crossing cover plates, and one amiibo card (I got Tom Nook)~

IMG_9262I think it’s quite sad that the charger for the 3DS wasn’t included in this bundle. 😔 And when my sister got the New 3DS XL Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask Limited Edition, it also did not come with a charger. I really don’t know why they stopped selling them together. I just bought mine at Target, but if you don’t have one, you can get one here.

I also bought some accessories for my new 3DS even before I got it in the mail. This Sentimental Circus case was actually for a Nintendo 3DS XL, but it was just so cute that I had to buy it! It fits my 3DS and charger well and has room to fit games. I also got this super pretty Princess Peach cover plate from eBay, which I talked about in my Cute eBay Finds post.

IMG_9268These are close-ups of the two sets of Animal Crossing themed cover plates. I think they are just so happy-looking and colorful. 💕 The front cover plate is easy to put on and take off, but for the back, you would need a small screwdriver to take it off and replace it (screwdriver not included in bundle).

IMG_9266IMG_9267This is the amiibo card that I received (you get a random one). So, how amiibo cards work is that you just have to tap your card to your New Nintendo 3DS to have that character show up in your game! If you are not going to buy the New Nintendo 3DS but want to use amiibo cards for this game, then you would have to get the Nintendo 3DS NFC Reader/Writer accessory. You don’t need amiibo cards to play this game, but they’re fun to have!

IMG_9273One of the reasons that I wanted the new 3DS was because of the buttons! The colors remind me of the old school game consoles from years ago~ It just brings back a lot of really great memories. 😊

IMG_9272Overall, I am so in love with the new 3DS. It’s the perfect size to take anywhere you go, and people will definitely be complimenting how cute the cover plates are~

IMG_9269Just so you know, I am affiliated with Amazon and eBay. However, I bought all of these items with my own money, and my review on them is 100% my own opinion. 😊

I would love to know if you bought the new 3DS and what you think of it or if you’re planning on buying it, so feel free to comment below!

Thanks for reading.

    Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
    Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things
    out pretty fast. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where
    to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?

    Appreciate it

      Yeah it is quite easy to start a blog since there are many websites that now help you! WordPress is a great place to start! I would look into making an account and going from there! It’s super easy to use and you don’t need experience in making a website; it pretty much does it for you!
