Nintendo has announced that Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer will be getting a new sharing function via a free update on September 16th in Japan.
The new function will allow users to share their home designs online and check out other people’s creations too. To browse through uploaded designs, there will be the ability to filter through on a ‘popular search’ which will have categories such as ‘cute’, ‘cool’, ‘unique’ and ‘I’d live there’. Once you’ve viewed another players design, you will have the option to give them a score and check out their rankings against different categories.
There will also be a monthly ‘Home Contest’ which will be based on different themes. This contest will run from the 1st through to the 15th of each month with prizes up for grabs for the winners. Once the results are announced, you’ll also be able to check out the winners home designs online.
Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer will be released on September 25th in North America, and the 2nd and 3rd October in Europe and Australia.
