Also on 10th November, the Sanrio Collaboration Pack will be available via the Official Nintendo AU/NZ eBay Store.
New RV campground!
After updating your game, you’ll notice a new area in your town.
This new campground offers different interactions with special villagers and new shopping opportunities, as well as Harvey, a hilarious new character that will assist with all campground needs!
By tapping a certain amiibo figure or card, that character will show up in their stylish custom RV – this even applies to some non-Animal Crossing amiibo like the Inklings from Splatoon and Wolf Link!
By finding a Wii U item or Nintendo 3DS XL / New Nintendo 3DS item in an RV at the campground, you can unlock two new mini-games and purchase them with MEOW Coupons.
The Wii U console unlocks the Desert Island Escape mini-game, while Animal Crossing Puzzle League can be accessed with the Nintendo 3DS XL / New Nintendo 3DS item.
The Wii U and Nintendo 3DS items can be obtained via fortune cookies at the Nooklings’ shop, but it’s much easier to obtain these items by scanning any of the 16 Animal Crossing amiibo figures.
Certain Animal Crossing amiibo figures and cards can also be used while playing these new mini-games…
With the new amiibo Camera, take the coolest in-game selfies ever. By gathering favourite villagers, you can snap a photo and save it to view whenever you like!
No amiibo needed for these new features!
While many of the new features introduced in the Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo update use amiibo, there are many that don’t require amiibo at all!
By earning new MEOW (Mutual Exchange of Wealth) coupons, you can get unique in-game items at the RV campground or from visiting animal friends.
To earn these coupons, complete new town initiatives, like pulling a set amount of weeds or gathering certain seashells.
In Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo, you can purchase a new secret storeroom for your house at Nook’s Homes.
The secret storeroom can be accessed from anywhere in the house and stores tons of collectibles.
Maybe it can even be used to hide a dusty old treasure map in there... isn’t that where all dusty old treasure maps are stored?
Decorating is easier than ever!
Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo lets you customise your home by moving around your furniture and items using the touch screen.
