Brewster wishing the player a happy Valentine's Day in Animal Crossing: City Folk
|Name in other languages|
In Animal Crossing
In Animal Crossing, the player will receive letters from all of the animals in the town of the opposite gender on Valentine's Day. Each villager will attach a gift to their letter. What the player receives in the mail depends on their relationship with that villager. Shirts are given for fair to poor relationships and furniture is given for good relationships.
A week or two before Valentine's Day, villagers begin to hint that they are going to send chocolates to a special someone. Pete, the mailman, also advises everyone to clear their mailboxes.
In Wild World
Although Valentine's Day does not appear in Animal Crossing: Wild World, items were sent by Nintendo over the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection in celebration of Valentine's Day in 2006 and 2007. On February 14, 2006, Chocolates were distributed in Japan, and a Lovely Loveseat was distributed in North America. On February 12, 2007, a Lovely Chair was distributed in North America.
In City Folk
In Animal Crossing: City Folk, the player may receive a letter from a villager on Valentine's Day that contains a Chocolate Heart. Additionally, Brewster serves hot chocolate at The Roost instead of coffee.
A week before Valentine's Day, a bulletin board notice appears announcing the event.
In addition to the event itself, multiple Valentine's Day-themed items were distributed to player's via WiiConnect24. From February 14 to 26, 2009, a Chocolate Heart was distributed in Japan, from February 7 to 21, 2010, a Cupid Bench was distributed in North America, and from February 22 to 28, 2010, a Flower Bouquet was distributed in South Korea.
In New Leaf
In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, the player receives a letter from Isabelle on Valentine's Day that contains a Chocolate Cake, as well as a Chocolate Heart from villagers of the opposite sex if they have high friendship with them. Additionally, Mom sends a letter that contains either a Cacao Tree, Uncommon Shirt (if the player is male), or Spring Shirt (if the player is female).
Like in City Folk, Brewster serves hot chocolate instead of coffee on Valentine's Day.
In New Horizons
While initially absent from Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Valentine's Day was added in the 1.7.0 Free Update. On Valentine's Day, villagers with high friendship, as well as Isabelle, will send the player a letter attached with either a Chocolate Heart or a Heart-Shaped Bouquet. In addition, the player can purchase a Chocolate Heart and a Heart-Shaped Bouquet from Nook Shopping as part of a seasonal Valentine's Day event from February 1 to 14.
In Pocket Camp
In Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, on February 13 the player will receive Valentine's Chocolate. On Valentine's Day itself, villagers will congratulate the player.
