Which Amiibo Animal Crossing: New Horizons supports

Animal Crossing: New Horizons supports three different types of amiibo, but not every single Animal Crossing amiibo – for example KK Slider – is supported at launch. Support for this will be added later.

The first type of amiibo New Horizons endorses is the Animal Crossing amiibo figures.

A total of 18 Animal Crossing amiibo have been released so far. Two of them, the resident and Melinda, were published in the Super Smash Bros series, the other 16, including Tom Nook, Käpten and Olli, are in the Animal Crossing series.

The second type of amiibo that New Horizons supports is the Animal Crossing amiibo cards.

This includes four series with a total of 400 Animal Crossing Amiibo cards – a lot! These cards range from animal residents like Jens and Grimm to special visitors like Reiner and Gulliver.

Five Animal Crossing promo cards have also been released. Here you can see the complete catalog of Animal Crossing Amiibo cards on the official website.

Last but not least, New Horizons also supports the Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo series. This set consists of 50 amiibo cards that were released along with the Amiibo support update for Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

They brought with them 50 residents who haven’t been seen since Animal Crossing and Animal Crossing E +, including Stella, Arne, and Tilmann.

As part of a promotion with Sanrio, six special cards for this series have also been released.

Here you can find an overview of all cards in this series.

How and where to use the amiibo in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

To use your amiibo in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you have to go to the service center.

There you will find a machine with a green leaf on the side where you can use your amiibo.

Please note, however, that this option is not available from the start! The service center must first be expanded after three more residents have come to your island, which takes a few days. In addition, you must have built a campsite and received a first visitor there, only then can you invite new camping guests via amiibo!

Then interact with the device and place the selected amiibo figure or card on the controller’s NFC contact pad.

If you’re using a Joy-Con controller or the Nintendo Switch Lite, the NFC contact point is where the right controller stick is. On the Pro Controller, the NFC contact point is under the Nintendo Switch logo in the middle.

What will the amiibo unlock in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?

On the one hand, it is possible to use the amiibo cards to invite residents to your island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Use an amiibo card to invite the respective resident to the island.

To do this, you need to have an appropriately developed service center where the visitors can then stay.

You can then interact with them there.

And apparently you can then persuade these visitors to stay permanently on your island and to settle there.

You could get visitors to stay permanently.

For another, there is Fotopia, a special house on an island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

There you can use models of different residents for photo shoots. You can activate them either with Amiibo figures or cards on Fotopia.

As soon as you have unlocked them, you can equip the models with a variety of items of clothing, determine emotions, decorate the scene and, last but not least, take your photo.

Since certain cards can only be used later, it is currently difficult to say what can still be unlocked with them.

We’ll update this article as soon as something comes up.
