Best Friends Forever

Players who visit your town (either locally or online) can be added to your list of best friends. You can then send messages when you're both online, even if you're not visiting each other's towns.

Home Improvement

You can personalize both your home's interior and exterior. Pay a visit to Nook's Homes on Main Street to buy new designs for your roof, door, fence, and more. You'll also find lots of furniture items for sale in Timmy and Tommy's store.

Do-It-Yourself Design

You can apply new looks—and even custom designs—to your furniture. Just visit Re-Tail and talk to Cyrus.

Dream of Far-Off Places

The new Dream Suite lets you visit towns from all around the world, even those of people you've never met. And since it's all a dream, you can play around to your heart's content.

Show Off Your Home

You can use the StreetPass function of your Nintendo 3DS to show your home to other players. Watch as the Happy Home Showcase fills up, then check out their homes for inspiration.

Dance the Night Away

Every night is K.K. night! Check him out at Club LOL from Sunday to Friday for some dancefloor fun, or go to his acoustic set on Saturday. You can even get one of his tunes for your personal in-game collection.
