Downloadable Content

Downloadable Content (DLC) was first confirmed in an interview in Nintendo Power for Animal Crossing: City Folk. Downloadable content includes items (furniture, clothing, etc.) not normally available in the game and encoded in the disc to recieve at a later time. So far Nintendo has released fourteen items, some available for certain countries only and some not, but the items are tradeable over WiFi and are also available for purchase in the catalog at Tom Nook's Store. There are currently 60 confirmed DLC items.


[edit] How Do I Obtain Them?

In order to obtain any downloadable content at all, you must make sure that WiiConnect24 is turned on. You can do this by talking to Rover and turning it on the when you talk to Rover on the bus on the first trip to the city, or you can turn it on via the phone if you didn't turn it on with Rover the first time.

[edit] Pete and Wendell

Pete delivering DLC

Pete and Wendell will be the ones who will deliver your DLC. If it is an item/object, then Pete will come and tell you that you have received a letter from Nintendo. If it is a clothing pattern, then Wendell will be the one delivering it to you. Wendell will always deliver his DLC before Pete if they are scheduled to arrive together. Pete will, in turn, appear the next time the game loads.

[edit] What if my Pockets are full?

If this is the case, which it is with many people, Pete will say that he will hold the letter for you until you clear out your mail to make some room for the DLC. After you have made room for at least one more letter, you cannot get your DLC right away. Instead, you must load the game again and Pete will be there ready to deliver your DLC to you once more.
