This article is about the items distributed in New Leaf from the Animal Crossing series. For the items distributed in City Folk, see Distributed Items.


Downloadable content (better known as DLC) in New Leaf describes items distributed by Nintendo's specialized item servers. New Leaf takes advantage of distributed items that can be downloaded to the Nintendo 3DS either by actively accessing item servers over WiFi or by using SpotPass, which passively downloads content to the console when the game is switched on or left in stand-by mode.

This page describes the DLC available in North America. For a list of Japanese DLC, click here. For a list of European DLC, click here.

Local WiFi Content

From June 1st, 2013 to June 20th, 2015, North American users were able to access downloadable content by visiting the Post Office and asking Pelly or Phyllis "about a present" while connected either to a home WiFi signal or a non-Nintendo Zone WiFi signal at a retail location or other free WiFi spots. Once received, that particular player could not receive it from the Post Office again.

From June 21st to June 30th, 2015, North American users received a 004-3003 error (unable to connect to the server) when trying to access local WiFi downloadable content. Starting July 1st, Pelly or Phyllis informed the players that the content servers were no longer accessible.

Between June 16th and August 10th, 2013, Best Buy stores in the United States that hosted Nintendo Zones made four pieces of exclusive furniture available, one every two weeks. Players simply had to go to participating Best Buy stores, boot up their games, and visit Pelly or Phyllis in the post office. Instead of receiving one of the above Local DLC items, they would receive one of the following items, depending on when they visited Best Buy.

SpotPass Content

As in City Folk, a number of items were distributed passively to New Leaf using SpotPass in a similar manner to the now-defunct WiiConnect24 service. If SpotPass content is available, the player will find Pete waiting for them outside their home and will automatically deliver a letter containing a special item attached to it; should the player's letter inventory be full, it will be placed in their mailbox instead. Like the WiFi DLC, each item has a particular date range during which the item is distributed, and players can only obtain each item once.
