Nintendo Direct: Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer Launches with Amiibo Cards and NFC Reader this Fall

In one of many surprise announcements this evening, Nintendo confirmed a new Animal Crossing game on the way for 3DS. While it’s not a true sequel to New Leaf, it seems to be a supplemental spin-off that utilizes brand-new amiibo cards. In this title, you’ll scan in cards of Animal Crossing characters and decorate their homes to your whim.

This release fulfills Nintendo’s promise to expand amiibo beyond figures and into cheaper forms like cards. The game will launch in North America this fall, alongside the promised NFC reader for non-New 3DS and 2DS systems.
