Animal Crossing

How do you exit the Donkey Kong Math Jr. game?

Games Guru: Try the Z button or the Start button. One of those should do the trick. If this doesn’t work, write back and I will take your question directly to the highest source — Nintendo.

Is there a code for Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda?

Games Guru: This is an excellent question that was hotly debated. I have never accessed Super Mario Bros. or The Legend of Zelda in Animal Crossing. From what I hear, 15 NES games are available in Animal Crossing, and codes for nine of those games are readily available, but Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda are not among them. Sorry.

How do you get a fishing rod?

Games Guru: You purchase the fishing rod at Nook’s Store. If it’s not in stock right away, return after a few days and it should be available.

What is the list of NES games and how do you get them? Like “You get Donkey Kong on your birthday.”

Games Guru: There are 15 NES games buried in Animal Crossing. They include Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr. Math, Excitebike, Wario’s Woods and good old NES Baseball. You earn these games through a number of ways, but here’s a shortcut: Visit Tom Nook and say you want to talk about “other things,” then give him the following codes:

  • For Donkey Kong: 2n5@N%8JUjE5fj ljcGr4%ync5EUp
  • For Golf: Crm%h4BNRbu98d 9un8exzZKwo7Zl
  • For Donkey Kong Jr. Math: bA5PC%8JUjE5fj ljcGr4%ync5EUp
  • For NES Baseball: 1n5%N%8JUjE5fj lEcGr4%ync5eUp

    Quick way to make some easy money. Go to tom nook and choose the say code option and type in the following exactly as I have it listed here:


    you can do this up to three times a day and each time you do it you will recieve 30,000 bells for a total of 90,000 bells a day. Hope this helps I used it a lot and I had all of my remodeling loans paid off in 2 days because i would change the dates to get it faster.

    Until I got to the biggest house, Got a golden statue of me put up. And became bored with it. There isnt much to do after that except to go around and get all of the fish, bugs, painting and fossils…

  22. everyone say tom nook will say other things but he never says that on mine
