Despite Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer having had amiibo support since its release, New Leaf has had to wait quite some time to finally get the ability to interact with the cards and figures. Thankfully, the amiibo support for New Leaf is far more than just a gimmicky addition.
Instead, scanning in an amiibo will have the ghost Wisp take their form before giving you the option to have the real deal show up in Harvey’s RV park. Here, you can talk to them, receive unique and rare items, and then eventually ask them to move into your town. It’s a neat way to give players a little more choice in their neighbors, and there’s a few other great ways amiibo support has been utilized in New Leaf that we’ll get to a little later.
