If you’ve been waiting for a reason to jump back into one of the series’ best games with Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Nintendo has just made it possible.During yesterday’s special Animal Crossing-themed Nintendo Direct, some pretty huge announcements were made, namely the fact that Animal Crossing: New Leaf is getting a massive update. It’ll take up 2,000 blocks on your SD card if that’s any indication of how large it’s going to be.The new update will bring amiibo support along with a wealth of additional content, namely a brand new campground area. You’ll complete daily quests that award Mutual Exchange of Wealth (MEOW) coupons upon completion since that’s the only form of currency you can use there as well. Harvey, the dog, will greet you at the new campground, and he’ll serve up specific items in exchange for your MEOW coupons.Amiibo and amiibo cards can be used to filter in new villagers to your town via the genie Wisp. You can use non-Animal Crossing amiibo if you’d like, so if you’ve been collecting figures from all of the collections you won’t have to worry about them being left out in the cold. You can use them to recruit characters, but also unlock minigames like Desert Island Escape and Animal Crossing Puzzle League.If you really, really dig your villagers, you can also utilize a special AR camera feature that’s now available that allows you to pose with your animal friends and take photos. You can also utilize a Secret Storeroom expansion for your humble abode in-game, which offers more opportunities for storage and allows you to organize it all via touch screen. It’s a lot like Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, which coincidentally if you’ve played and have retained save data for, will get you some special items available from Tom Nook.There’s a massive amount of changes available for anyone looking to head back into Animal Crossing: New Leaf, so if you’re itching for more animal fun, it’s a great time to dig your copy out now.last_img
