Upon receiving your downloadable content, you will receive a letter along with it. There are different versions of letters depending on where you live:


Hello [player's name]!

The summer stands at the

door! Get with this

sandcastle, that has won the

European Summer contest,

the vacation in the house!

From Nintendo

Reason for Receiving

This DLC was released because of a contest that the Nintendo staff held for the Europeans. When the players voted on the concept that they wanted to be turned into DLC for the game, the sandcastle won. Thus, it was released to the players a few months later.
