Nintendo’s branch in the UK has been pretty bad with getting out physical releases on time lately, and that seems to be the case *again*. To much disappointment, Nintendo wasn’t able to send out the physical copies of Happy Home Designer. (Which just released today in the UK) Nintendo UK responded to the outrage of fans by giving them this email:
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
So, if you ordered from Nintendo UK’s web store be sure to look in your email for your code!
