The NES is a furniture item in Animal Crossing. It can be placed on the surface of tables and other similar furniture that have surfaces for items. The player can interact with this item to bring up a dialog that says, "I want to play my NES, but I don't have any software."

The NES can be obtained from Crazy Redd's Furniture Emporium, Wisp, a treasure hunt, or trees when the player has good luck. It does not have any color for the purpose of fêng shui. This item is lucky, meaning it gives a 777-point Happy Room Academy bonus when placed in the player's house.

No villagers have this item in their home.

Version differences

The Disk System in Doubutsu no Mori and Doubutsu no Mori+

In Doubutsu no Mori and Doubutsu no Mori+, the NES is modeled after a Famicom Disk System rather than a Nintendo Entertainment System and is named ディスクシステム (Disk System). Doubutsu no Mori e+ retains the design from Animal Crossing but retains the Disk System name, despite no longer being modeled after a Famicom Disk System.

Unused functionality

In 2018 it was discovered that when the NES is interacted with, the game scans the Memory Card (Controller Pak in Doubutsu no Mori) for NES ROM data. NES ROMs, including those not already in the game, can be patched and placed on a Memory Card, where they can be loaded and played by interacting with the item.[1] Interacting with the item with multiple NES ROMs on the Memory Card displays unique text that is normally unused: "Should I play my NES software?", followed by a list of games.

The normally unused NES game data management menu in Doubutsu no Mori

In Doubutsu no Mori only, if the Controller Pak has NES ROM data on it, selecting the "てがみをほぜんしたい" ("Save a letter") option at the post office brings up a normally unused menu titled "コントローラパックのきろくをけします" ("Erase Controller Pack Records"), where the NES game data can be viewed and deleted. In the iQue Player version, the Chinese title text for the menu is corrupted and the original Japanese text is left untranslated for all other text in the menu.
