In the Nintendo DS game, "Animal Crossing: Wild World," Tom Nook the raccoon greets you when you move to town and promptly puts you to work in his small store. Nook usually upgrades his store when you spend plenty of money there. To get the final upgrade to Nookington's, a friend must visit your town and shop at the store. You need to set up a Wi-Fi connection to let a friend visit your town, so if you cannot do this, there is no legitimate way to get Nookington's. If you have an Action Replay code device, though, you can enter a code that gives you the store even if you have no Wi-Fi connection.

Insert the Action Replay device and "Animal Crossing: Wild World" game into the Nintendo DS. Power on the Nintendo DS.

Scroll to the listing for "Animal Crossing: Wild World." Select "New Code." Give the code a name. Enter "121d8e7e 00005010" on the code line. Save the code.

Load the game. Move your character to the exact spot where you want to place Nookington's. Choose an empty lot, if possible.

Open your inventory. Select the leaf icon in the first slot of your inventory. Drop the leaf on the ground.

Go inside any building, such as neighbor's house or the museum. Exit the building. When you exit, Nookington's appears in the place where you dropped the leaf.


Visit the top floor of Nookington's to get your hair styled at the Shampoodle salon.


If you block another building with Nookington's and save the game, you will no longer be able to enter the blocked building.
