Día de los Enamorados
In Doubutsu no Mori and Doubutsu no Mori+
On February 14 in Doubutsu no Mori and Doubutsu no Mori+, all female villagers in town send male players a letter with a gift for Valentine's Day. One month later, on March 14, all male villagers in town send female players a letter with a gift for White Day. This is a reflection of how Valentine's Day is traditionally celebrated in Japan; women give men gifts on Valentine's Day, and men give women reciprocal gifts on White Day.
Villagers only send letters if the player has spoken to them. The attached item varies based on the player's friendship level with that villager and is the same for both Valentine's Day and White Day:
- Max friendship – random raffle furniture
- Friendship value of 80 or more – random furniture from the town's rare group
- Friendship value of less than 80 – random clothing from the town's common group
White Day does not appear in Dòngwù Sēnlín.
In Animal Crossing and Doubutsu no Mori e+
In Animal Crossing and Doubutsu no Mori e+, White Day is removed, and all players are sent letters with gifts from every villager on Valentine's Day. The gifts received are the same as in Doubutsu no Mori and Doubutsu no Mori+
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.
