Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival Coming November 21st
Nintendo Australia have announced that Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival is set to keep the party going on November 21st.
By using amiibo figures from the Animal Crossing series, players can take control of fan-favourite characters like Isabelle, Tom Nook and K.K. and watch them come to life as they travel across the board, trying to collect as many Happy Points as possible. Players tap their amiibo figure to the Wii U GamePad to roll the dice and move along the board, with each space involving their character in a short sketch. These sketches see the characters star in quirky adventures around the town, whether it’s singing at the station for more Bells (the local currency in Animal Crossing), taking a trip to the shops, or visiting the town’s museum. Sketches don’t just affect your Bells and Happy Points, but show the world of Animal Crossing and its inhabitants in fun new ways that are sure to put a grin on everyone’s face.
In order to ensure that anyone who wants the game can start playing, there is a special edition of the game available with amiibo for Isabelle and for a limited time Digby. Also included are Goldie, Stitches, and Rosie amiibo cards, which will give you a start on your amiibo card collection.
Anyone with a copy of Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer and a New Nintendo 3DS or New Nintendo 3DS XL system will also be able to save any homes they have designed to an Animal Crossing amiibo card, then import it into Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival and see it appear on the game board’s town.
amiibo figures of Cyrus, Lottie, Reese, Mabel, K.K. and Tom Nook, as well as an amiibo triple pack including Cyrus, K.K. and Reese, will also all be available to purchase separately on 21st November.
