DS Download Station[edit]

DS Download Stations used a special Game Card to distribute unique items—the Mario Theme, Pikmin, and Blue Falcon—to the game via Tag Mode; the item would appear on the player's beach in a Note in a Bottle alongside a letter from either Katrina or Tortimer.

Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection[edit]

Letters containing items were sent out over the Internet to players who were connected to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection on specific distribution dates, with letters being distributed in North America, Europe, and Japan from 2005 to 2009.[6][1] These letters were usually distributed in celebration of an event, either in-game or in the real world, and they usually contained items that can be obtained elsewhere. The last letter distributed via Nintendo WFC in North America, on August 8, 2007, did not have an item attached.[6]

Two letters were unintentionally distributed to players over Nintendo WFC in North America: one was distributed in late November 2005[nb 1] and contained a test message[nb 2] and a Crown, and one was distributed on January 26, 2006, and contained a blank letter with a corrupted item known as Red Tulips attached. The latter item gained community attention due to it being received by many players and being glitched; if placed in a player's house, it will appear invisible and cannot be picked up, meaning the location it was placed is permanently occupied by it. Shortly after the distribution of the Red Tulips item, Nintendo of America issued a statement saying the letter was accidentally sent as a result of an internal error with the communication tool used to send out the letters. The statement also urged players who received the item to dispose of it in the recycle bin.[7]

Villagers[edit]

The letter in the Note in a Bottle received after receiving one of the monkey villagers

Six monkey villagers—Champ, Elise, Monty, Nana, Simon, and Tammi—were distributed from DS Download Stations via Tag Mode. This was the only way for them to move to the player's town. When received by the game, the villager instantly moved in and a Note in a Bottle containing a message from Katrina; if there were already eight villagers in the player's town, the villager would be added to a queue and would move in when another one moves out.[8]

The monkey villagers were first distributed in Japan in late 2005 and early 2006: Champ, Elise, and Simon were distributed from December 9 to 15, 2005, and Monty, Nana, and Tammi were distributed from February 2 to 19, 2006. Beginning in June 2006, Elise, Monty, and Nana were distributed in Australia, and in July, Champ, Elise, Simon, and Tammi were distributed in the United Kingdom and Ireland. In the United States, all six villagers were distributed in Toys "R" Us stores from July 23 to 30, 2006, and in the Nintendo World store in New York beginning in July. In South Korea, all six monkeys were distributed from January 29 to February 20, 2008.[1]

Bulletin board messages[edit]

Two bulletin board messages—one as a test—were distributed over the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. One was distributed at the same time as the test letter and contains a similar message, and one was distributed on February 14, 2006.[6]

Notes[edit]

  1. This letter was reportedly received by winners of a contest held by IGN who received the game prior to its December 5 release.[6]
  2. The letter read:
    Dear <player>,
    Thanks for your testing
    Letter downloading test
    2005/10/22-0:17
    Version:8(appended key)

    From Animal Crossing Stuff

  3. The distribution of this letter was delayed from September 22 due to downtime of the Nintendo WFC servers.
