Nintendo of Europe have distributed a Pikmin 3 themed house in the HH Showcase through SpotPass, hereby finally ending the drought of HH Showcase SpotPass content in Europe. Inside the house, you’ll find a variety of rooms themed to the Pikmin franchise…

The main room features many pieces of the Sc-Fi set, while the additional rooms are each dedicated to the five main Pikmin types in Pikmin 3: Red, Yellow, Blue, Pink, and Rock!

Kudos to Nintendo of Europe on this house, it’s a very clever way of promoting the game while also providing some fun content in Animal Crossing. At the moment, this house remains a European exclusive. It’s possible though that we might see it come to North America tomorrow to celebrate the launch of Pikmin 3 stateside.

Special thanks to Ebony from TBT for providing these images, as I lack a European 3DS.

Hopefully this house comes state side. It was fun getting to demo the Pikmin 3 coop high score mode at Comic Con. After seeing the 3 pairs in front of us play with the new pink flying Pikmin my brother & I chose to check out the rock Pikmin level. Breaking the crystals was fun, but I think we were the only pair using the handheld part of the Wii U which had the areas map on it.:)…Now I just need to get myself a Wii U 🙁

Yup, do not forget to “lock” it (put in your favourites) if you can, because there is more than just 5 items to order ^^;

No love for Purple and White.

I wish they’d make hats for the other 4 colors of Pikmin.

Edit: YOU CAN CUSTOMIZE THE STAINED GLASS WINDOW???? Now I have to order a new one.

Take it you’ve never visited lost of towns through the Dream Suite. First town I went to, 5600-2168-3314, had 2 stain glass windows with some of their designs on them.

Haven’t visited any actually lol.

First time I tried it said something about the parental restrictions blocking the feature (which is weird since I distinctly remember not setting any when I got my 3DS) and never felt like going into the settings to change it.

God I’m lazy. XD

I know, same thing with me. That means the ‘let her decide’ option is messed up. try again with entering an address or looking up by town or player name.

[…] And that was really it for today. I really hope The US gets the Pikmin house Spotpass too though! […]

Mike Honcho

Woah, it’s almost like Nintendo of Europe and Nintendo o Australia are to different Nintendo entities that serve two different regions. Mind boggling.

The version America got is the worst hha spotpass so far! Theres only 3 rooms with nothing to order

BlooShroom

That’s true, I wish we got the European version,but we got plenty of other spotpass houses that no one else got!….I reeeallly want those sci-fi pieces though :/

Congrats to Europe! I know a lot of European players have been annoyed about having not a single SpotPass house.

I think I got something similar to this today. Only had one streetpass but had 2 houses. 2nd person had the red pikmin hat on. House only had 2 rooms. First floor had a bunch of Pikmin planters, the little shelf with the Gamecube (customized so it can;t be ordered) and a whole MESS LOAD of plants and flowers. 2nd floor seems to be Donkey Kong themed with a jungle floor, bamboo wall, banana stacks on the sides of the room, iron beams, and a Gold Clock (which is kinda jerkish since we can’t order it) If it was a… Read more »

That’s awesome! It’s good to hear that Europe finally has this. They have been really patient!^^
@BlooShroom Yes, I totally agree! Europe deserves this for waiting so long. I hope the house was worth the wait!

Sydjazz

Australia got it too
