Animal Crossing: New Leaf Update and Direct Coming Soon

One of Nintendo’s most adorable and time-consuming titles is receiving a free update. Animal Crossing: New Leaf came out a couple of years ago but something new is moving in soon. Coming just in time for the holiday season, the game will receive an update allowing players to use amiibo figures and amiibo cards. There will be 50 new cards as part of the upcoming wave featuring never before seen characters and access to their RVs. These cards will release on December 2.

The full functionality of the amiibo has yet to be revealed. More information will come soon in the form of a mini Nintendo Direct focusing on the series. This will stream on November 2 and should hopefully cover a lot more. Perhaps there will be mention of the partnership between Nintendo and Sanrio as a recent video was posted showing off Hello Kitty and more characters integrated into the game.

Check out a clip of the recent Nintendo Direct along with Hello Kitty below.
