Following the price drop on Animal Crossing: New Leaf as part of the Nintendo Selects line-up, the price of Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer has dropped on the Nintendo eShop in North America as well.
With the new price of $20 USD / $30 CAD, this represents a price drop of about 20 dollars in the United States and 15 dollars in Canada. It also matches the just updated price of Animal Crossing: New Leaf. As to why it wasn’t just included as a Nintendo Select as well, who knows.
We’re not really sure why the price has been dropped without any fanfare or announcement, but it’s possible this is a precursor to something in tomorrow’s 3DS Nintendo Direct. When a number of new amiibo bundles were recently released in North America, the digital price of the games were reduced, so the NFC Reader / amiibo bundle for Happy Home Designer could be getting reduced tomorrow.
The free theme with purchase offer introduced at the game’s launch back in September 2015 looks to still be valid as well. Purchases of the digital game should come with a free theme code on the eShop receipt. That code will grant you free download of the Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer: Your Office theme.
