With Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer having launched in Europe yesterday, many fans had pre-ordered the game, but they haven’t arrived yet. Nintendo UK has acknowledged this by giving out free digital copies to those who pre-ordered the title. They’ll also still receive the physical copies they’d previously ordered.
With the digital copy also comes a code for a free pack of Animal Crossing Amiibo cards to redeem at the Nintendo Official UK Store. Here’s the full message:
Thank you for pre-ordering Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer with the Nintendo Official UK Store.
Regrettably there has been a delay in the dispatch of your order which means this is unlikely to be arriving with you today.
We fully appreciate that this must be very disappointing; as a gesture of goodwill we would like to provide you with a code to allow you to download the game from the Nintendo eShop so you begin creating stylish new homes for your Animal Crossing friends as soon as possible.
The physical product will be on the way today if not already, keep an eye out for the dispatch notification email for further details.
Your download code is: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
As an additional gesture you can redeem the code below at the Nintendo Official UK store for a free pack of the Animal Crossing amiibo cards, just add them to your basket then enter the code at checkout.
Your amiibo card code is: XXXXXXXXXXXX
