A whole bunch of new Animal Crossing badges move into the Arcade this week. Cranky Camofrog — the bane of my existence — is joined by the upbeat upholsterer Cyrus and cool koala Eugene, along with a host of other notable animal pals. There are also pieces of the gold furniture series to collect for the truly affluent among you — your furry residents’ tax dollars at work.

Stragglers from last week’s special theme will be happy to know that Nikki & friends decided to stick around for a bit longer. Joining them are a splattering of repeat Splatoon sets featuring intrepid squid kids and paint blots to help start your own home screened turf war. Also, be sure to keep an eye out for wild Pokémon encounters throughout the week, headlined by Johto legendaries Ho-Oh and Lugia.
