Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival

News circulated around E3 time that Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival would be a free download. Although the physical bundle always existed, it was thought that the digital version would simply require an amiibo to function. This is not actually the case – no free download exists.

Nintendo has told Destructoid that Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival is a $60 product. You’ll get the disc, Isabelle and Digby figures, and three amiibo cards with a purchase.

However, Nintendo hasn’t said if the amiibo will be available separately. We’re also not entirely sure what the “limited time offer” logo for Digby on the box means.

One other thing to point out: the amiibo figures aren’t packed individually similar to Mario in the Mario Party 10 bundle.


Nintendo updated the Japanese Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival website earlier today with more footage from the game. A video with a look at the different mini-games can be found below.

When Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival launches in Japan later this month, customers will be able to buy the diorama pictured above in limited quantities in order to display their amiibo.

So far this diorama hasn’t been announced outside of Japan.

The Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival website also reveals a few new mini-games as showcased in the second video. I believe Resetti Bop, Mystery Campers, Acorn Chase, Fruit Path, and amiibo Card Battle are all new. That’s on top of the previously-revealed Balloon Island and Quiz Show.

Teaser websites are up for a pair of two titles. You can access the Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash page here and Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival site here. Both games are coming out fairly soon, so they should be updated with a ton of content in the very near future!
