In celebration of Halloween, Nintendo is dishing out a creepy clock freebie to Animal Crossing: Let's go to the City players this October.

The creepy clock has constantly turning hands, cracked glasswork and some giant white gnashers adorning this grandfather clock's freakish face.

To get your hands on the creepy clock make sure you bump into your friendly postman, Pete, between October 1 and 14. Speaking to Pete between this period is the only way to get the creepy clock so keep a look out for your neighbourhood postman.

Once the clock's countdown is complete a new Creepy Series item will be made available. The first Creepy Series item, the creepy cauldron, is available for two more days so go and chat to Pete or you'll miss out.

Head over to to ensure you have your Wii set up correctly to receive the free item.
