To do:
There's an oddity where Isabelle would say she comes from the town name of "AAAAAA".

In Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, e-Reader cards are back with a vengeance! Buy the hundreds of compatible amiibo cards today!

A lot of the features found in this game (such as the touchscreen furniture arrangement tool) got recursively added into New Leaf via its Welcome amiibo Update.

Unused Graphics


A dummy image featuring a television. This image can be found in a couple of archives.

Three dummy images for interior textures.


A 34×32 image that can be found embedded in a few textures for external house walls.


A burgundy square embedded in a few roof textures.


Three dummy door textures. The first one here doesn't suit the proper size for doors. The latter two contain mirrored designs for a front and back to the door.

A white dummy door texture along with its final version. These are very similar in design to Animal Crossing: New Leaf‍ '​s dummy door texture. Only New Leaf's brown dummy door returns in Happy Home Designer.


A guideline for designing clothes. This texture returns from Animal Crossing: New Leaf.


A guideline meant specifically for pants/bottoms.


Also back from New Leaf is this design dummy texture. It doesn't appear nearly as often.

Three dummy textures relating to shoes, leftover from New Leaf.

Unused Regional Content

Various landmarks in the game have versions with Korean localized textures. Happy Home Designer never got localised into Korean, so these go unused.

Unused Villager Characters

Careful, you'll lose an eye.
This page or section needs more images.
There's a whole lotta words here, but not enough pictures. Please fix this.

Within the data of the game are 20 unused villagers in various unfinished states. All of them would later be used in Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo.
