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

      Dear prince caspian,
      Yes, Resetti is in the Wii version. I know because I have it. I like ticking him off too.

  4. I love Animal Crossing! I only have the Gamecube version. But I currently preordered the Wii version and I can’t wait. My Gamecube version was stolen a few years ago. And I was finally lucky enough to find a used copy at a near by Gamestop. But when I played it, I quickly found out that my cousins had deleted my memory so they could play one of their games in its place. Its back to the beginning for me. Oh well, its still fun!! I just wish I had my e-reader and 40 cards I used to have. I also had Action Replay for the Gamecube.

    Question does the new Wii Action Replay have the Nintendo Gamecube Animal Crossing codes? And where can I find E-Reader Cards and a new E-Reader?

  5. Animal Crossing is a good game! This November nintendo will sell ANIMAL CROSSING: CITY FOLK! Its for the Wii

  48. To get the golden shovel you must have 2 shovels you make a hole with the shovel then you dump the shovel in the whole and then cover it then make sure that you know were you put the shovel to get the shovel the next day. Then you will find the golden shovel when you shovel it up and you will get lots of money from tom nook.

  49. I know how to get golden shovels.

  50. I think I know what you mean by pittfall. You barry something and keep it in there for a long, long time. WARNING: Do not do this if the item is something you really love

    or that item will not be there! I’m not theretening! It’s true!
