Update: Bumped to the top. No surprise, but Europe is getting the update this fall as well. Should be the same for North America.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf is getting a free update this fall, which will let players scan amiibo to unlock more content in game. It looks as if a normal villager card will make that character move in. The Animal Crossing figures are also compatible, and there is a tease of Splatoon content. Two squirrels that look like Callie and Marie can move into town, and there also appear to be furniture and clothing items based on Splatoon and the Squid Sisters. Since the update seems to be amiibo-based, they might be only obtainable with the Callie and Marie amiibo.
Hopefully more information comes soon! We’ll update when it does. In the meantime, check out the images of the new content below!
