    Nintendo WFC Letters
    
    This is version C, created by Liquefy on January 4, 2008.  Version A was 
    created on March 5, 2007.  If you have any questions, corrections, additions, 
    suggestions, or comments, please contact me at jps5@hotmail.com.
    
    In Animal Crossing: Wild World (ACWW), you can receive letters, with gifts 
    attached, from Nintendo!  To get them, you must enable downloads using the 
    Telephone in your attic bedroom.  Connect to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection (WFC) by 
    either opening your Gate or attempting to visit another town.  If you connect 
    during the time period that the letter is being distributed, it will appear in 
    your mailbox.
    
    The following lists the beginning date of distribution, the gift attached, the 
    name of the stationery used, and a transcript of the text for each of the WFC 
    letters distributed so far.

    From Animal Crossing Stuff"
    
    This first WFC letter was reported by some of the IGN ACWW Contest winners, who 
    received copies of ACWW about a week prior to its North American release date.  
    Reports of receiving this WFC letter also appeared at NSider forums on December 
    15, 2005.
    
    
    
    ********** Date:  January 12, 2006
    Gift:  Coin
    Stationery:  New Year's Cards
    
    "Dear [name],
    
    I hope you are enjoying
    your Nintendo DS. Please
    accept this New Year's
    gift with my gratitude.
    
    From S. Iwata"
    
    This Nintendo "celebration" of New Year's Day was disrespectfully late.
    
    
    
    ********** Date:  January 26, 2006
    Gift:  glitched Red Tulips
    Stationery:  Butterfly Paper
    
    "Dear [name],
    
    
    
    
    
    
    From Nintendo"
    
    This WFC letter was accidentally available only for several hours on January 26,
    2006.  It was the result of a temporary internal error with the communication 
    tool used to upload the letters onto the network.  The Red Tulips could be 
    planted anywhere in town (including plazas and bridges), creating a permanent 
    spot where anything else could be planted or buried.  Also, the Red Tulips 
    could be dropped in your house, creating a permanently unusable spot.

    This WFC letter was delayed from September 22, due to a temporary disruption in

    Only one day remains in
    the Acorn Festival, so get
    moving! My hunger for
    acorns remains unsated!
    
    Cornimer the Mysterious"
    
    A notice in Nintendo Power Magazine said to look for a WFC letter on October 20,
    2006, with a very rare gift.  Instead, the letter above was distributed, 
    obviously a week late because the Acorn Festival ended earlier in the month.  
    The WFC letter with the "rare" gift never arrived.

    Stationery:  Snowman Paper

    From Nintendo"
    
    
    
    ********** Date:  December 22, 2006
    Gift:  Bonfire
    Stationery:  Snowy Paper
    
    "Dear [name],

    like a shiny gold trophy.
    The fishing tourney's next
    Monday, so get ready!
    
    From Nintendo"
    
    This WFC letter demonstrates Nintendo of America's lack of understanding how 
    ACWW's in-game events are scheduled:  Fishing Tourneys take place on Sundays.
    
    
    
    ********** Date:  January 19, 2007

    Happy Daylight-Savings-
    Comes-Early Eve!
    Saving energy is one
    Briiiiiiiiiiiiiight idea!
    
    Nintendo"
    
    This WFC letter was meant to celebrate the beginning of Daylight Savings Time, 
    an American adjustment to official timekeeping.  Starting in 2007, Daylight 
    Savings Time begins three weeks earlier, compared to previous years.
    
    
    
    ********** Date:  March 16, 2007

    One animal's trash is
    another's treasure, so
    don't forget about the
    upcoming Flea Market!
    
    From Nintendo"
    
    The Flea Market does not occur for another two weeks, so it is not clear why 
    Nintendo of America would release this letter so early.

    Stationery:  Butterfly Paper
