At least one Animal Crossing amiibo is required to play the Animal Crossing Board Game attraction, and they can be used optionally during the Quiz Show attraction. It’s also possible to save data to your Animal Crossing amiibo figure to store your Happy Points and unlock new costumes and emotions. Animal Crossing amiibo cards are required to play all attractions aside the Animal Crossing Board Game attraction. They can also be used to invite animals to build a house in your board-game town.
You can use amiibo on your New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL by tapping them to the NFC area on the bottom screen. Alternatively, using the NFC Reader/Writer Accessory you can use amiibo on your Nintendo 2DS, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL.
You can also use amiibo on your Wii U by tapping them to the NFC touchpoint on the Wii U GamePad.
