K-Man, whom you may remember from a previous Animal Crossing update, recently wrote in to us documenting his latest free gift from Nintendo. The fact that Nintendo would keep giving away free gifts in the game to keep players active in the game as well as one of its players constantly maintaining their town just reiterates how awesome a game this is. The latest gift given our by Nintendo is none other than an Arwing. The letter from Nintendo reads:
Star Fox Command stats are live! We were going to give you Slippy, but take this instead!"
Congrats on the free gift K-Man and all you other readers out there should make sure you let us know how your town is doing. We're always watching, always listening...
[Additional thanks to Reeve, who tipped us off, yet failed to include pictures.]

I read about this the other day and it struck me as a bit unsettling. The gifts are a great idea, but this is the first one (that i know of) which is, essentially, advertising.
What's next? Basketball hoop for mario 3 on 3 release?

Wow, how generous of Nintendo...
...to recycle an item from the Gamecube Animal Crossing.

I got my free Arwing this morning too.

My brother already had one of these...

I got one a few days ago.
It's huge! it takes up like 6 spaces in a room (that's a lot), but it looks awesome.
I think it's a good way for them to advertise. It's not like they're selling Big Macs at Tom Nook's. The Mario items came out shortly after The New Super Mario Bros. so I don't believe it's the first time they've done it.

I've had AC:WW since January and I find myself still playing it daily. Some days it's an hour, most days it's 15-20 mins. I like how little things like these gifts keep the game interesting. I've still got two of my original residents and I'm seeing how long I can keep them around. :)
There was a free kayak sometime in August as well but I didn't send in a tip. Oops!
