Animal Crossing Amiibo are going to be hitting the shelves this year, this we know. NFC cards for Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer have also been announced, and that comes as no surprise. What has recently been revealed, is the fact that the traditional Animal Crossing Amiibo will have functionality in Happy Home Designer as well!

There’s been no information as to whether or no the Amiibo will bring more/different functionality than the NFC cards, but it’s nice to be able to utilize the actual figures. I’m sure this was expected by many people though, as Nintendo has had enormous success with the Amiibo so far. At this point, it would’ve been a terrible idea to release a game like Happy Home Designer without Amiibo capabilities. Will you be purchasing an Amiibo if you get Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer? Tell us in the comments!

Our Verdict

Mariah Beem
I am very fond of video games, which is why I chose my major of Video Game Design with focus on Narrative. The idea of being able to make people feel the way I do about games through my own game is my main goal. I want to be able to give gamers a way to connect and be brought together by an experience that could be powered by elation, sadness, or even fear. It is emotions such as those that hook people into games and make them want more. By connecting a well-thought story with mechanics, character design, level design, and even audio, a game can be unstoppable - and ridiculously fun to play. I believe that narrative design is not a static thing. For narrative to be done well, it must be fluid and dynamic - something that is able to be changed by the player. Whether that be by choices, the knowledge the player gains from exploring, or simply who the player talks to, the story must bend and change and grow. This is why I want to be a narrative designer: there is definitely more to it than meets the eye, and I love a challenge.
