Neko Atsume: Wallpaper Guide

What is Neko Atsume?

Neko Atsume is a kitty collecting mobile game in which the player puts down food in their garden to attract lots of different cats. When a specific cat visits your garden enough times, it will leave you a present called a memento. Each one is unique for each cat! The aim of the game is to collect all kitties in your cat book and to collect all mementos from each cat.

How Do I Access the Wallpapers?

You can access the wallpaper by navigating to the shop section, via the in-game menu.

All of the wallpapers cost the same, each one is twenty gold fish. Gold fish can be earned via the cats that visit your garden, they will leave fish after visiting. The player must 'unlock' each wallpaper by achieving specific requirements.

You can download the wallpaper at any time after purchasing it, it will be stored on the player's device under the image file "Neko Atsume".
