If you’re like me, then you have an adorable set of Animal Crossing amiibo figures as well as Animal Crossing amiibo cards sitting around your house somewhere. Each figure or card can bring a specific villager to the game either for a photoshoot or so that you can invite them to become a permanent resident. What’s more, using amiibo cards, you can invite one of the 390+ villagers to your island to recruit them. Even more functions are available to those who purchase the paid DLC.

If you’ve been playing for a while and still haven’t found out how to use amiibo in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you can only use them once amiibo functionality has been unlocked. There are a few different places you can use amiibo including the Campsite, Harvey’s Island, and The Roost cafe. On this page, we’ll explain how to unlock amiibo functionality, what amiibo do in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and also explain how to use them.

How to use amiibo in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

There are a few different ways to use amiibo in New Horizons. We’ll step you through how to unlock each amiibo-related activity and how to use amiibo to bring characters to your island.

The amiibo figures vs. the amiibo cards

There are over 400 Animal Crossing amiibo that you can use if you count the 18 NFC figures and the hundreds of Animal Crossing amiibo cards. Both the figures and the cards feature NFC chips and get scanned the same way using your Nintendo Switch. However, in New Horizons, the amiibo cards are more useful since they allow you to invite new villagers to your island. The amiibo figures are fun to collect, but they can only be used to invite the unique characters they depict to photoshoot sessions while you’re on Harvey’s Island.

If you have your heart set on inviting a specific villager to your island, you might want to scour eBay for a particular Animal Crossing amiibo card as many sellers will let you buy them individually. But be warned. Some of the more popular villagers’ amiibo cards are incredibly pricey.

A full list of Animal Crossing amiibo cards can be found on Animal Crossing’s official website.

Now that the 1.9 update has gone live, Animal Crossing players can get six unique Sanrio villagers and their items by scanning Sanrio amiibo cards. Unfortunately, these cards are currently in limited supply and are hard to find.

The latest cards come in packs of six and include the new characters that were added with New Horizons including Raymond, Flick, C. J., Orville, Wilbur and more. They sell out fast, so snag them when you can.

How to unlock amiibo functionality

There are two different ways that amiibo can be used in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Harvey’s Island lets you use amiibo for photo ops while the campsite allows you to scan amiibo and invite new villagers to your island. Keep reading to learn more about how to unlock either of these functions.

If you’ve played Animal Crossing: New Leaf, you might recall a hippy dog named Harvey as one of the particular villagers. After a few days of playing in New Horizons, this dog will randomly appear on your island. Make sure you talk to him, and he’ll invite you to visit his island home. The awesome thing is that the airport allows you to fly to him for free. No Nook Miles Tickets required.

Instead of foraging for materials, bugs, and fish, Harvey’s island only lets you walk into Harvey’s house. Once inside, you’ll be able to set up a scene in one of his rooms and take pictures with your favorite villagers. That is, as long as you have that villager on your island or have a corresponding amiibo to invite them with. You can place different furniture, change the lighting in the room, and position your favorite Animal Crossing villagers in various locations before taking pictures with them. You can have up to 10 animal villagers in one room at a time.

However, it should be noted that not every amiibo works with New Horizons. So far, the game has warned me that Digby and Resetti can’t be invited to Photopia. This had also been the case for Reese, Cyrus, and Rover up until another update arrived. I’m guessing that any amiibo figures that currently don’t work with New Horizons will be usable once future updates are released.

If you scan a character’s amiibo figure or card into the game while at Harvey’s Island, a poster depicting that character will becoming available to purchase at the NookStop in Resident Services. This works even for characters that I wasn’t able to invite into Photopia. All you have to do is go up to the kiosk, select Nook Shopping, and then press R to view all available posters. Use these awesome images to spice up rooms in your home.

You can have up to 10 animal villagers in a room at a time.

Brewster and the Roost

Coffee is served by a returning favorite character, Brewster, a pidgeon with a formal look. You can build his cafe, The Roost, in your museum and even allows you to invite any character that has an amiibo card, even characters like Resetti and Digby who aren’t in New Horizons. Sometimes, they’ll bring a friend along with them.

How to unlock Brewster

There are a number of things you need to do to unlock Brewster. Make sure your island meets these requirements and then go on the miniquest to unlock the Roost when you can.

  1. You must have built the museum and have the artwing.
  2. Donate at least one fish, bug, fossil, and art piece to the museum.
  3. Have a three-star rating on your island. You can check with Isabelle to see where your island currently sits.
  4. When those requirements are met, talk to Blathers and he’ll mention his friend Brewster.

  6. You’ll see Brewster on the island. Talk to Brewster and relay Blathers’ message.
  7. Head back to the museum and tell Blathers what happened.

Your museum will immediately close for construction, but when you get on the next day the new cafe will be in place along with Brewster.

You don’t have to do anything extra to unlock amiibo scanning at the cafe. I’ve tested amiibo figures and amiibo cards, including ones for characters that don’t appear in New Horizons, and so far they have all worked.

  1. Interact with the yellow amiibo telephone in the left side of the room.
  2. Select Yes!

  4. Scan your amiibo figure or amiibo card by hovering it over the joystick on your Joy-Con.

  5. The character you requested will appear after a short cutscene. You can talk to them and sit with them. If you use a Reaction while sitting with your guest, they’ll respond. Sometimes the things they do might surprise you.

  6. If you’re done talking to this character and want to invite another one, simply go to the telephone and scan another amiibo card. Note that this will make your first guest leave.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons — Happy Home Paradise is the first and only paid DLC for New Horizons. With this new content, players can create vacation homes for various villagers. If you scan an Animal Crossing amiibo card, you can invite that specific villager as a client and create the perfect getaway just for them.

How to unlock the campsite

The campsite allows random villagers to appear on your island, which gives you the option of inviting them to live their as pemanent residents. If you have amiibo cards, you can use them to ask specific villagers to your campsite. To be more precise, the character depicted on the card gets invited to your island.

Note: You can only use Animal Crossing amiibo cards here. None of the characters that have been turned into amiibo figurines can be invited to the campsite.

Steps for building the campsite

You’ll need to complete several steps to build a campsite. Here’s what you need to do to unlock the campsite and invite villagers to your island using amiibo:

  1. Upgrade Resident Services to a building
  2. Build a campsite
  3. Invite a visiting villager to live on your island
  4. Build additional homes on your island
  5. Wait for the villager to move in
  6. Use the NookStop kiosk at Resident Services

1. Upgrade Resident Services to a building

You must first take all the steps necessary to upgrade Resident Services from a tent to a building to unlock the campsite’s amiibo functionality. If you haven’t gotten that far yet, click the link above to go to a guide.

2. Build a campsite

Once you’ve upgraded Residential Services, Tom Nook will tell you that he’s interested in opening a campsite. He’ll then ask you to stake out a plot of land specifically for this purpose. After selecting a location for the campsite, you’ll have to wait for the next morning. The campsite will appear on your island the next day, but you won’t get any visitors until the following day after that.

3. Invite a visiting villager to live on your island

The first animal NPC that comes to the campsite will be chosen at random. When someone does appear in the tent, you can invite them to live on your island simply by talking to them. You’ll need to play some games or crafting items for them in order to convince them.

4. Build additional homes on your island

Now it’s time to talk to Tom Nook at Resident Services. Since you’re inviting even more villagers to your island, this loaded raccoon will tell you that more houses need to be built to accommodate everyone. He’ll then give you a housing kit and will ask you to pick a location for this new home. Run around your island and select the perfect place for your new villager to live. You’ll need to wait until the following day for this new house to show up on your island.

5. Wait for the villager to move in

You’re going to have to do some waiting. It takes a day for the house to show up after you’ve chosen a location, and then it takes another day for the new villager to move into your island.

6. Use the NookStop kiosk at Resident Services

Once the new villager has moved in, head back to Resident Services and talk with Tom Nook. He’ll tell you that he wants to bring even more villagers to the island. Now, run over to the Nook Stop kiosk and interact with it. He’ll tell you that you can now use Animal Crossing amiibo cards to invite more villagers to the island. Just note that you can only have one camper per day.

Now that you’ve unlocked the ability to use amiibo cards, it’s time to learn how to scan them in and convince campers to move into your island. You’re going to have to scan a villager’s card multiple days in a row if you want them to become a resident of your island. Here are the steps needed to acquire a new villager using amiibo cards.

  1. Interact with the kiosk at Resident Services.
  2. Select invite a Camper.

  11. The camper is closer to being persuaded, but they won’t be ready to move in just yet. The following day repeat steps 1 – 9.

  12. After giving them an item on the next day, talk to them several times to see if they are interested in moving in. You might have to invite them back one more time and craft them another item before they’re willing to move in.
  13. If they agree to become a resident but you already have 10 villagers on your island, then you’ll need to choose which of your current villagers gets kicked off the island.

There you have it. As long as you have either the Animal Crossing amiibo figurines or the amiibo cards, you’ll be able to invite characters into your game by merely scanning the NFC chips. Remember that the cards are more useful when it comes to getting the villagers you want to live on your island, although the figurines are just too cute to pass up.

Enjoy your game! I hope you’re able to get all of the villagers you want to come to your island.
