REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– With so much information, it would be easy to dismiss the latest Nintendo Direct presentation as an elaborate April Fool’s Day prank.

The debut of a 200cc speed class in Mario Kart 8? Yup! A new line of Yoshi amiibo figures made of actual yarn? Oh yeah. A home-designingAnimal Crossing game? Launching this year! Splatoon launching on May 29 and more details about Mario Maker, Yoshi’s Woolly World and the new game in the Fire Emblemseries? It’s all accurate!

A totally new form of amiibo is coming this fall! The first set of amiibo cards will be based on Animal Crossing characters and will be compatible with the Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer game. (Photo: Business Wire)
