If you’ve been collecting Animal Crossing Amiibos for ages like most of the series’ dedicated fanbase, you may have been wondering whether or not they’d be good for anything come New Horizons. A press release from Nintendo has confirmed that New Horizons is going to support Amiibo figures and cards from the franchise, and that you’re going to be able to invite them to hang out with you on your island too! 

Ther’s going to be a place called Photophia where you can spend time with the villagers that are spirited into your Animal Crossing: New Horizons save via the powers of Amiibo magic, and you’ll be able to have photoshoots with them and more.
