Nintendo’s upcoming Animal Crossing Wii U game, Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival, is a party type game, resembling Mario Party, that releases later this year. As we have been waiting for the official release date to be announced, we do know that Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival is a collection of virtual board games that are based on the calendar, and they are said to include the four seasons and seasonal events.
While players will be able to utilize the Animal Crossing amiibo cards in the minigames, we know that the actual Animal Crossing amiibo figures will be used as playable characters. At E3 this year, we got a sneak peek at some of those amiibo, including Isabelle, Tom Nook, K.K. Slider, and Mabel. This evening, NeoGaf user, James Scott, spotted a link to all of the amiibo figures announced for the game, so far!
The link to Japan’s Nintendo official site shows twelve amiibo figures. The characters included are Blathers, Celeste, Mr. Resetti, Kicks, Isabelle, K.K. Slider, Mabel, Tom Nook, Digby, Lottie, Reese, and Cyrus. There is not one shown that can be passed up by a die-hard Animal Crossing fan. The two showing on the the game’s section on another page of Japan’s Nintendo site shows both Isabelle and Digby included with the game, along with three Animal Crossing amiibo cards.
They have not shown up on Ninteno’s U.S. site, nor have we got wind of any type of reveal or announcement. However, we will keep you posted as more news is released. Here is the link to the amiibo lineup for the states so everyone can keep their eyes peeled.
