How to Use the Amiibo Cards?
If you scan the amiibo at Nook Stop, you may invite an amiibo’s villager to come to your island’s campsite. Here, you will have the option to talk to the camper who will ask for a DIY furniture item that can be crafted and then delivered to them. Otherwise, if you have not the recipe yet for the requested item, it automatically will be given to them by the camper.
After the item has been sent, you can suggest the camper to move to the island. Well, the camper probably will ignore your invitation either first or second. Instead, the camper will accept the invitation for the third time in the New Nintendo 3DS.
Then, if you scan amiibo at Harv’s Island, the amiibo character automatically appears. You can then use them in a photo shoot in the same way as the regular island villagers do. Unlike the regular island villagers, the special characters cannot be changed for their clothing.
Aside from that, not all amiibo characters will appear in Photopia. That means only the characters who already appear in the game are used this way. However, by scanning the amiibo character will unlock a poster of them which can be finally purchased from the Nook Stop for 1,000 Bells.
How to Invite More Villagers with Amiibo Cards?
In the Animal Crossing game, you can also use Amiibo cards to invite more villagers to come and live on your island. Then, to get more villagers with Amiibo cards, the first thing that you need to do is to unlock the Campsite/ Campground.
In order to unlock the campsite, you should first upgrade the Residents Services Tent into a proper building. As we know, the campground is an open area that you can create to allow you to receive more villagers on your island. Once you meet them in campsite, you can then convince them to live on your island.
Once you upgrade the Resident Service Tent, you can continue to get Tom Nook’s tasks to increase your island’s popularity to obtain a certain someone’s attention. To build the campground, you will need the Campground Construction Kit that requires 15 of each type of wood as well as 15 Iron Nuggets. You can then place the kit down in an area that you point to as a campground. The following day, a random villager will appear in your campground and start inviting them to come and live on your island.
