During today’s Animal Crossing: New Horizons Direct, Nintendo confirmed that a fun extra feature from the series’ 3DS entries would make a return!
In particular, both amiibo figures and amiibo cards will be compatible with the game via the Joy-Con NFC reader. You can see this during the broadcast below (starts at 27:47):
Based on the game’s Japanese website, we also have more specifics about what players can do when scanning amiibo:
- Invite them to a photo studio (i.e. Photopia);
- Get a special poster of that villager (i.e. as a furniture item); and
- Invite the villager to the campground (only once per day)
What do you think? Excited to pull out those cards from storage? Feel free to share your thoughts below!
