New Designer for Raccoon-Owned Real Estate Enterprise Needed Immediately

Only Candidates Who Want to Make Hundreds of Animal Villagers
Happy Need Apply

REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nook’s Homes is looking for you! The renowned real estate business is
seeking a new designer to help decorate the interior and exterior of
villagers’ homes and public facilities in town. Candidates must own a Nintendo
system and the new Animal
Crossing: Happy Home Designer
game and be willing to interact
with animals with big personalities who like to wear stylish clothes.
The highly coveted position requires a love of designing (obviously!),
strong animal skills (no brainer!), a knack for decorating (of course!)
and a passion for amiibo
(they’re cool!). Interested parties can contact Tom Nook
through snail mail, carrier pigeon, megaphone pointed in the direction
of Nook’s Homes … or by picking up Animal Crossing: Happy Home
, now available for Nintendo 3DS.

  • Great working environment: Working for Nook’s Homes places you
    in the esteemed company of other star employees, including Tom Nook,
    CEO and wearer of fabulous sweaters, Lyle, Tom Nook’s right-hand
    animal and real-estate veteran, Digby, brother of Isabelle and all
    around great pup, and Lottie, the newest member of the Animal
    family. Optimistic and outspoken, Lottie will walk you
    through the ins-and-outs of design. She’s a pro, so listen up if she
    offers you some friendly advice. (She even excels at posting
    on Twitter
    ! Lottie truly is a renaissance otter.)
  • Fun day-to-day duties: When you step into the role of designer,
    there’s no need to worry about daily office tasks like scheduling
    meetings or checking up on those all-important memos that
    OMG-have-to-get-out-before-the-deadline. Your tasks in Animal
    Crossing: Happy Home Designer
    are all about having fun and using
    your imagination. In fact, the motto at Nook’s Homes is “Have Fun!”
    Well, it’s not the actual motto, but it very well should be!
    What other job asks you to design the homes and town facilities for
    hundreds of beloved Animal Crossing villagers? That’s right:
    None of them! And designing is made simple and streamlined using the
    touch screen of the Nintendo 3DS system.
  • Creativity encouraged: After taking on new design requests,
    your catalog of usable items and decorations will grow. And this will
    totally help with expanding your creative options. When animals come
    to you with their vision, they may think they know what they
    want, but by using the tools provided, you can design homes that are
    more creative and imaginative than the villagers ever dreamed! If
    someone requests a new home that is “cool,” you can flex your creative
    muscles and give him or her a house full of snowman furniture,
    snowflake wallpaper and a relaxing “cold” tub. Why not? You’re the
  • One-of-a-kind benefits: Let’s talk perks! Boy, there are some
    unique perks at Nook’s Homes. First and foremost: amiibo cards. What
    are those, you ask? They are the next evolution of amiibo and work
    with Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. Packs contain six
    random amiibo cards and can be purchased at a suggested retail price
    of $5.99 each. There will be hundreds of cards in the wild (perfect
    for trading with friends!), and each card represents a different Animal
    character. After tapping them in the game using the New
    Nintendo 3DS
    system or the Nintendo 3DS NFC Reader/Writer
    accessory for players who own Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL or Nintendo
    systems, the character joins your game and gives you a unique
    design request or can be assigned to work at one of the facilities
    around town! There are even some high-profile clients like DJ K.K. and
    Isabelle that will only visit if you use their respective amiibo cards.
  • Giving back to the village: Designing homes is not the only
    focus of Nook’s Homes. If you impress them with your design savvy,
    they’ll even ask you to help redesign the school, hospital or
    Department Store to help build up the town.
  • Positive reinforcement: Folks who love sharing their awesome
    work (who doesn’t?!) have many options in Animal Crossing: Happy
    Home Designer
    . If you’re working on a particularly creative
    request, you can share images of your inspired designs on Miiverse or
    your favorite social media channels using the “Image Share” feature.
    And since peer reviews are a staple of any well-run business, Nook’s
    Homes offers the ability to rank fellow designers’ creations in the
    “Happy Home Network,” which will be available through a software
    update at launch. Creations can be ranked in one of four categories:
    cute, cool, unique or “I want to live here.” You can even turn your
    designs into a QR Code pattern to share in the Happy Home Network that
    other designers can view.
  • With all this great information, how could you not want to take a
    job at Nook’s Homes? It’s the best animal home designer job in the
