Promotional 7 Eleven furniture coming to Animal Crossing: New Leaf in Japan

7 years ago 57 Comments

Japan is getting some promotional 7 Eleven furniture in December. These items include a 7 Eleven model shop, a counter with a cash register, and more.

Just bring your 3DS to a local 7 Eleven in Japan to wirelessly receive the exclusive furniture in your Animal Crossing game. You’ll want to come multiple times throughout the month as new furniture will be offered every week.

What are your thoughts on these types of promotions? Does it add to or take from the game’s atmosphere to have outside branded products like these in the game?

Good news folks, a new villager is moving into town! How do I know? The big house construction site in town for Mint! Hooray!

It looks like we’ll know ahead of time when a new villager is moving in by spotting their house construction site by Tom Nook. One has to wonder if we have any control over it. Can we help out to speed it up?!?

Tweet Translation:

Good afternoon everyooone! This morning there was a site set up for a new house in the village, so a lot of people went to check it out. Seems like someone named Mint will be moving in there. I can’t wait to meet them and find out what they are like!
