Remember the exclusive Animal Crossing: New Leaf feature for North America and Europe that Nintendo teased back in February? It seems to have been revealed prematurely in the officially translated Iwata Asks released today.

In the Iwata Asks translated by both Nintendo of America and Nintendo of Europe, an Editor’s Note is included on the page where Kyogoku-san mentions the Happy Home Showcase area, which allows you to receive houses through the StreetPass feature.

Editor’s Note: In the North American version of the game, model homes created by Nintendo will also appear in the HH Showcase. These homes will be distributed via SpotPass.

Editor’s Note: In the European version of the game, model homes created by Nintendo will also appear in the HH Showcase. These homes will be distributed via SpotPass.

The Editor’s Note reveals that in the North American and European versions of the game, model homes created by Nintendo will be distributed using SpotPass and appear in your HH Showcase, in addition to the standard StreetPass houses.

It’s not quite as much as some speculated, such as receiving your friends homes through SpotPass, but it’s a good addition regardless. Of course, it’s still possible that such a feature will be revealed at a later date so stay tuned.
