Nintendo of Europe has announced the first installment of DLC for Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, the upcoming spin-off of the popular community simulation game.

The downloadable content comes in the form of Louie, a gorilla villager not seen since the original GameCube version of Animal Crossing.


The tweet sent out by NOE also mentions exclusive items being packaged with him, which appear to be from the Nintendo furniture set. Along with a Brick Block, Cannon, 1-Up Mushroom, Fire Flower, Starman, Yoshi Egg and Super Mushroom, a Louie’s Pic is also seen in the tweet.

Louie is expected to head to copies of Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer on October 2nd.

    Wait, just a daft question but if the game’s not Live yet, how is the DLC live? I always wondered that.
