Creating Animal Crossing Amiibo Cards, Here’s the Guide!
There are at least three requirements that you should meet to create Amiibo cards, here are they:
- NFC compatibility
Make sure your Android phone is NFC-enabled if you really want to create Animal Crossing Amiibo cards. Here, a smartphone is highly recommended. Even though you can purchase an NFC reader/ writer for your PC, it’s such a complicated way to do it.
- NFC Tag
You need to buy a tag/ sticker in order to create Animal Crossing Amiibo cards well. NFC tags are commonly available in some marketplace, such as Amazon, eBay and others. It’s important to note that not all NFC tags will be compatible with Nintendo game consoles. Ensure to buy the NFC tag carefully.
Here, we recommend you to buy an NFC NTAG215 tag/sticker. It’s very important, you shouldn’t ignore it, as all other tags/ stickers will not work and will be a waste of your money.
- Amiibo .bin Files
To create Animal Crossing Amiibo cards, you will need unfixed-info.bin and locked-secret.bin files. Surely, you need an Amiibo tag to extract the files and use them to create a card.
- TagMo App
Once confirming that your Android device is compatible with NFC, you can proceed to any trustworthy site and free download TagMo App and file.
Here’s step-by-step to create Animal Crossing Amiibo Cards!
Step 1: Download the TagMo App
As this app is not available in Google Play Store, alternatively you should get it from other sources. Make sure that you turn on the ‘downloads setting’ from unknown sources (settings>security>unknown sources>enable). Of course, the failure to enable this feature will make an installation failure too and you won’t be able to proceed.
Step 2: Download .bin files
You can download the Amiibo .bin files by following those steps:
- First, open the TagMo app, make sure that you follow all the prompts requiring you to enable NFC.
- Go to the TagMo settings. Then, press the ‘IMPORT FILE’. Look for the download folder and choose the ‘unfixed-info.bin’ and ‘locked-secret.bin’ files.
- After that, you need to click on each of those files. One at a time, the files will be downloaded into your TagMo app.
- Hit on the ‘scan tag’ and put an Amiibo on the backside of your phone.
- Here, you will find an image of the Amiibo on your phone’s screen. If you receive a message which says ‘your phone does not have NFC capabilities, you cannot use this device to get the bin files’, it means that you have to press ‘Save Tag’.
Certainly, you can repeat this process with other Animal Crossing Amiibo cards you want. Through this way, you will have access to your favorite Nintendo Switch, 3DS and Wii U games. Well, if your Amiibo is rare/ yet, you must upload its .bin files to NFCBank and Sub.
Step 3: Launch the TagMo App
However, the most essential step for making the Animal Crossing Amiibo cards is by launching the TagMo App. Follow the guide below to launch the TagMo app!
- First, open the TagMo app.
