Some may say that Christmas comes earlier every year, and it proves quite true in the case of the Nintendo Badge Arcade. The latest update has added three Animal Crossing grabbers with holiday badges.


The three badge machines all share a winter theme. The first machine has Isabelle in her purple winter coat, three snowflakes, a glow wand, Rudy the cat, and Freya the wolf. The second machine has Jingle the reindeer and his sack of gifts, two presents, Flurry the hamster, and Skye the wolf. The final machine has the four snowmen of the Snowman family, in case someone wants Snowman, Snowmam, Snowboy, and Snowtyke.


All three of the Animal Crossing winter grabbers will be in the Nintendo Badge Arcade until November 23. There were no free plays offered to visitors on November 22, but the practice machine for today is the grabber with Jingle, Freya, and Flurry. Grabbers reappear rather regularly in the Japanese version of the Nintendo Badge Arcade, so don’t be too dismayed if you miss one of the badges you want.
