Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer plays house on 3DS this fall

There's a new installment of the Animal Crossing franchise coming to Nintendo 3DS and it include Amiibo... sort of.


There's more Animal Crossing on the way, according to today's Nintendo Direct. The latest installment in the series is called Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer and focuses more on the homekeeping element of the franchise. The game is set to hit this fall.

While one might expect to hear about new Amiibo figures, given that Nintendo seems to be giving them out like candy, that's actually not the case for Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. Rather, the game will utilize Amiibo cards, which will help design rooms and also invite new characters to your home. While the New 3DS includes a card scanner, old 3DS users will need to use a special scanner, which will also be available this fall.

More to come…

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
