Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer

Released in 2015, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer is a spin-off of the Animal Crossing series on Nintendo 3DS. In this game, your goal is to design the idea home for your various animal friends in-game. And it looks like Europe has quite a lot of home designers, as Nintendo announced yesterday that the game had sold over 1 million units in Europe alone.

While this isn’t anywhere near the usual sales level of a mainline Animal Crossing game, it still did pretty well for a spin-off!
