Time to return to town.
A Nintendo Direct is airing tomorrow, focusing entirely on Animal Crossing New Leaf and changes coming to the game.
The Direct was announced via Twitter, and was appropriately cryptic, letting the villagers of the world that there is something to look forward to. The direct will air at 7AM PT, 10AM EST. The mention of Harvey and his campground could hint at some new features coming to the game but we’ll have to wait and see.

We do know that Amiibo support – both cards and figures – is coming to New Leaf. We still don’t know what functions they will unlock but it’s pretty safe to assume that we’ll find out more tomorrow. The Animal Crossing line of amiibo was released last year in tandem with Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival. The game received lackluster reviews, so the amiibo didn’t exactly fly off shelves. This new update is likely meant to reinvigorate interest in an incredibly popular game that made waves upon its release in 2012, giving players a reason to pick up the colorful figures.
The new Animal Crossing game for mobile devices could also be revealed. originally slated to release before the end of 2016, it and the Fire Emblem mobile game were pushed into 2017, but we still haven’t heard a thing about either title. It is still unknown what kind of structure the game will employ – free to play or paid, but here’s hoping that we get the first sprinkling of details tomorrow.
