Photos with Animal Crossing

Nintendo UK has started out sending codes for Photos with Animal Crossing by email. If you’re signed up for the Nintendo Newsletter, a code could be in your inbox shortly. It’s a convenient way for 3DS owners in the UK to get their hands on the download without having to attend any special events.


Another video has come in from the Nintendo UK Summer Tour 2015. Below, you’ll find a promo for Photos with Animal Crossing.

Footage from the English build of Photos with Animal Crossing has been uploaded to YouTube. Take a look at the video below.

We now have the block size for Photos with Animal Crossing, for those who are curious about that sort of thing. The download is 78 blocks, which is roughly 9.75 MB. Pretty small!


Photos with Animal Crossing will be distributed at Gamescom 2015 later this week. For those who won’t be attending the expo, a second option will be available in Germany as well.

Three different AR cards will be handed out at select McDonald’s locations during the weeks of August 10, August 17, and August 24. Quantities are expected to be limited.

The Photos with Animal Crossing application can be received through Nintendo Zones. Users will be given a code once they access they boot up Nintendo Zone on their 3DS.



At Hyper Japan in the UK this weekend, Nintendo was handing out AR cards that could be used with the 3DS eShop application Photos with Animal Crossing. Previously, this was only made available in Japan back in November 2013.

Those who were lucky enough to be present at Hyper Japan could secure a download for Photos with Animal Crossing by entering a unique code on the eShop. It’s valid through the end of September.

At this time, it’s unknown if Nintendo has full-scale release plans for Photos with Animal Crossing in North America and Europe.
