ACNH Amiibo Cards Guide 2023 - New Amiibo, How To Get & Use In Animal Crossing New Horizons

Amiibo cards are physical cards that can be used with Animal Crossing: New Horizons to invite villagers and other characters to the player's island. Each Amiibo card features a character from the Animal Crossing series, and when scanned using a compatible Nintendo Switch device, the corresponding character will appear in-game and can be invited to the player's island. Amiibo cards are a fun and collectible way to add new characters to the player's island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.


What Amiibo Cards Can You Get In Animal Crossing New Horizons 2023?

So you have Series 2, 3, 4, and 5, except the welcome amiibo cards and the Sanrio cards. Series 5 is the newest series with a bunch of characters that were only introduced in Animal Crossing New Horizons. So it's definitely worth getting your hands on. It's unknown how long these will last in the store. There have been many periods in the past where these have been unavailable for long amounts of time. We definitely recommend getting them whilst you can. Sadly, it seems like they have no intention of making the collector's album available that is still out of stock sadly. Also, we do not have the welcome amiibo cards from New Leaf. Series 1 has become unavailable, it was there previously but we can't find it currently. Unless it's hidden somewhere else, it seems like that has already sold out now.


How To Get Amiibo Cards In Animal Crossing New Horizons 2023?

Unfortunately, these Animal Crossing amiibo cards 2023 are only available in the American Nintendo store which should still allow you to ship to other places. If you wanted to check in your own store, it seems like they're unavailable. Hopefully, this does mean that Nintendo is planning on putting them back in stock in lots of other places that would definitely be good. Since many people are still trying to get their hands on amiibos and especially those series 5 amiibo cards.


ACNH Amiibo cards are a great way to invite characters to your island, you can invite them into the Roost for a coffee and such. So they have a lot of uses in Animal Crossing New Horizons, especially for keeping residents around that you absolutely would not want to lose, if you're restarting your island or they just accidentally move out. It is also possible that these might be back in some of your local stores at the moment too. If you'd prefer not to buy it online then, it might be worth looking around to see if they are available. 


How To Use Amiibo Cards In Animal Crossing New Horizons 2023?

To use Amiibo cards in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you will need a compatible Nintendo Switch console, a set of Amiibo cards, and a resident on your island who is already living in a house (not in a tent). Here are the steps to follow:

Step 1 - Enable Amiibo functionality: Make sure that Amiibo functionality is enabled on your Nintendo Switch console. To do this, go to "System Settings" > "amiibo" and toggle the "Use amiibo" option to on.

Visit Resident Services: Go to Resident Services on your island and speak to Tom Nook or Isabelle.

Step 2 - Select "Invite a Camper": From the menu options, select "Invite a Camper" and then select "Yes" when prompted.

Step 3 - Scan an Amiibo card: When prompted to hold an Amiibo card to the NFC touchpoint on your Joy-Con controller or Pro Controller, scan the card to initiate the invitation process.

Step 4 - Play with the character: The character will appear at the campsite on your island. Interact with them to complete tasks and convince them to move to your island permanently.

Step 5 - Repeat the process: You can repeat this process with different Amiibo cards to invite more characters to your island.

Note that each Amiibo card can only be used once per day, and not all characters in the Animal Crossing series have Amiibo cards available. Amiibo cards are a fun and collectible way to add new characters to your island and enhance your gameplay experience in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
