Animal Crossing: New Horizons Amiibo

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the new obsession for a lot of people in the year 2020. The game was released in March 2020 where our world is in the mid-crisis of the Covid pandemic.    

With most countries implementing lockdown to curb the problem, we are told to stay at home and practice social distancing. That is when Animal Crossing: New Horizons hit us hard by giving us the other virtual world where we can live on the island carefree.  

First, we create a digital avatar, who arrives on a small and undeveloped island alongside a troupe of raccoons. The goal of the game is to make the island your home and decorate it with your creativity. Living together in the islands is villagers who will come in different attitude, style, and quirks to spice up the island.  

This is the time where Nintendo sees an opportunity to upsell their game and introduce Amiibo toys and Amiibo cards. Amiibo has been launched in November 2014 and it is a toys-to-life platform and can be used directly with Nintendo Switch, Wii U, and New Nintendo 3DS consoles by using built-in NFC readers.   

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has Amiibo toys and Amiibo cards that can be useful for several things during island life. That is because amiibo support in two distinct forms; focused on having fun and the other is useful for building the island.  

This is how Animal Crossing: New Horizons amiibo works;  

Harv’s Island and Amiibo Photoshoots  

Starting the game and while enjoying your early days of island life, you will encounter Harvey, a dog character dressed like a hippy and is a photographer. You will later visit his island named Harv’s Island by visiting the airport and ask to visit Harv’s Island.   

Here you will discover Harv’s Island is called Photopia and Harv has a photography studio on the island. This is where you can use amiibo toys and amiibo cards to summon a rather strange zombie-like version of the character to pose for photoshoots.  

Visiting Harv’s Island is free and it won’t cause bells or Nook Miles. Plus, during the next day after your photoshoot, you will unlock a purchasable poster version of anyone you invite to Photopia in the ‘Special Goods’ section of Nook Shopping from Nook Stop Terminal which you can hang on your wall.  

Campsite and Amiibo Visitors  

The other functions for amiibo toys and amiibo cards functionality come through the campsites. Once it is built, you can invite villagers to visit the campsite using your amiibo toys and amiibo cards.  

Once your chosen character arrived at your campsite, you can head over, talk to them, and invite them to join you to live on the island. Bear in mind that you can only invite one character per day.   

Without amiibo toys and amiibo cards, you will still get a character to move to your island. However, all these characters will come at random.
