Animal Crossing: New Leaf – New updates available in Japan, Europe, North America (Ver. 1.5)

Update: the updates for Animal Crossing: New Leaf (Welcome amiibo) are now available for download in North America!


Earlier this month, Nintendo released the long-awaited update for Animal Crossing: New Leaf, which adds quite a lot of content along with amiibo support. Unfortunately, it looks like it also added a couple of bugs. One of them impacts users who somehow managed to get items they’re not supposed to get during a normal playthrough, and it will not be fixed.

There’s also a glitch that nets you a [004 – 6006] error when trying to download presents or campers from the internet. The good news is that this glitch has already been taken care of: the latest Software update for the game fixes it.

Here’s the patchnotes for update Ver. 1.5 for Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo:

  • fixes error resulting in a [004 – 6006]  error code when downloading presents or campers
  • introduces additional enhancements to improve the user’s experience and enjoyment

To download this update, you have several options:

  • select Animal Crossing: New Leaf (Welcome amiibo) from the Home Menu of your Nintendo 3DS while being connected to the internet: you should get a prompt when doing so. Simply follow the instructions on the screen;
  • search for Animal Crossing: New Leaf on the Nintendo eShop, and select the update;
  • use the option in the Nintendo eShop settings.

Important! There is an update for each game:

  • if you already downloaded the previous update (Ver. 1.4), get the one for Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo. It requires 122 blocks / 15.25MB;
  • if you haven’t downloaded the previous update, get the one for Animal Crossing: New Leaf. It requires 1497 blocks / 187MB.

To check that you have the latest version installed, simply launched the game: you should see Ver. 1.5 in the top right corner of the bottom screen.
