Amiibo Support Coming to Animal Crossing: New Leaf
It seems like all of those awesome Animal Crossing Amiibo will finally be compatible with a really good Animal Crossing game. That's right, Nintendo is working on an update for Animal Crossing: New Leaf that will patch in Amiibo support.
Amiibo support doesn't stop at Animal Crossing characters. It seems that other Amiibo will be supported as well. On the Japanese site for Animal Crossing, a picture is shown of Splatoon items and decorations being displayed in a home.
It also appears that the Amiibo cards will offer some functionality as well, though no clear indication as to what specifically has been provided. Perhaps tapping an Amiibo card will bring that character into your game's world somehow.
The update is only confirmed for Japan so far, but it would be shocking for this update to not make its way to other territories.
