Nintendo have finally cottoned onto the fact that people have been filling up their social network feeds with proud displays of flamboyant interior design courtesy of Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and they're looking for even more via a new series of competitions that could see UK-based Animal Crossing owners win swag.
Each Monday at 4pm,, Nintendo will announce a theme on the game’s official UK Twitter feed. All you'll have to do is then redesign your home or tow around said theme, and then Tweet a picture via the 3DS' Image Share function along with that week's hashtag.
If that last bit makes no sense to you, here's a helpful link that illustrates how to get stuck into image sharing on your 3DS.
And here's the upcoming schedule along with relevant hashtags:
(all themes to be announced on Twitter by @AC_Isabelle)
• Week 1 Theme: 4pm on Monday 22nd July (#ACNLTheme1)
• Week 2 Theme: 4pm on Monday 29th July (#ACNLTheme2)
• Week 3 Theme: 4pm on Monday 5th August (#ACNLTheme3)
• Week 4 Theme: 4pm on Monday 12th August (#ACNLTheme4)
• Week 5 Theme: 4pm on Monday 19th August (#ACNLTheme5)
• Week 6 Theme: 4pm on Monday 26th August (#ACNLTheme6)
Please note: You must include the correct weekly hashtag when you send your tweet or your entry will not be valid. All entries must be posted using the Nintendo 3DS Image Share service. The closing date for entries will be at 23:59 on the Sunday following each week’s announcement.
The best pieces of evidence that get Tweeted in will be uploaded to the Animal Crossing: New Leaf Facebook page and, according to Nintendo, "the prizes will vary each week, and we will have some exclusive Animal Crossing prizes that you won’t find anywhere else!"
