If you’re interested in getting the Animal Crossing amiibo cards right now, you might be out of luck. They’re pretty much impossible to come by regardless of your region. That includes Japan, where the only place to obtain any cards seems to be auction sites. And of course, the asking price there is incredibly high.

The good news is, at least in Japan, Nintendo says it has plans to restock amiibo cards. All series will be available aside from the special Sanrio collaboration series.

Animal Crossing amiibo cards are compatible with New Horizons. After scanning an amiibo, players can place models in creative photo shoots. A poster of the character can also be ordered from Nook Shopping. Not all characters work currently, but Nintendo has said future updates will support more villagers.


Nintendo has provided new information about how amiibo works in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Figures and cards are both supported. When scanning either one, that character will appear in-game. There’s also Photopia where you can place models and have photoshoots.

It sounds like not every amiibo will be supported initially, as Nintendo said it will support additional characters in the future.

The Nintendo UK store is taking pre-orders for the latest two amiibo. Dark Samus, along with Richter, can be found here.

Both of these new amiibo are due out on January 17, 2020.
