ANIMAL CROSSING: HAPPY HOME DESIGNER

Nintendo



Tonight, on My Talented Master Kitchen Renovation Block Rules the Stars...

Nintendo’s penchant for all things plumber’s crack comes to the fore once again, as you do the tradie thing for the good denizens of Animal Crossing – and to line your own pockets, of course. This isn’t your typical Animal Crossing game though, so no fish for dinner. Trou- erm, pout!

Yep, Mario isn’t Nintendo’s only superstar tradesman, as you become a master decorator – complete with apprentice Lottie to boss around, although really she’s showing you the ropes. Under the employ of Nook’s Homes you attend to the decorating whims of various villagers. Animal Crossing being the place that it is, these desires are generally bright – and more often than not fluffy.

Basically an expansion of the building elements of the main Animal Crossing outings, you variously choose land for your client, get erection crazy then go creative with carpet, wall coverings, furniture and such. Your customers aren’t particularly demanding, so if you haven’t the greatest eye for décor then you won’t be unduly penalised – just make sure to include the handful of bits and pieces that they demand. Various themes can be raided to ensure that they’re happy little customers, and the more of those that you gain, the more stuff you get to decorate with.

Of course the customisation stretches to your very own self, from looks to fashionable (or not) attire. Once again, more stuff to play with unlocks the further you progress in your quest to tsjuz up the town.

Much more limited than usual Animal Crossing games – basically a plushie Sims - if we were cynical we’d suggest that Happy Home Designer was just an excuse to market the new separately sold amiibo cards – and the raft of also separately sold Animal Crossing amiibos...

But it’s hard being cynical when it’s so FLUFFY!

take me back to the start...
