amiibo are a set of character figurines that interact with the Wii U Gamepad and the NFC reader in the touch screen of the New Nintendo 3DS. The figurines can send data to select Wii U games, but those games will also send data back to the figurine with that character's new and improved stats.

The New Nintendo 3DS has amiibo compatibility built-in with its NFC reader, but the original Nintendo 3DS does not. Nintendo released an external amiibo reader for the original Nintendo 3DS on September 25, alongside the North American launch of Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer.

In the new New Leaf update on December 2nd, 2016, amiibo support for both cards and figurines would be available for the title. Additions include a new variety for villagers who have not yet appeared in New Leaf yet but who have appeared from Animal Forest to Animal Forest e+. These villagers will be staying in Mobile Homes and can move into the Player's town optionally.

Series 1 amiibo cards consists of 100 cards. The first 17 are special characters and the rest are villagers. Series 2 amiibo cards has been announced for release in mid-October for Japan only (so far), the first 17 are special characters and the rest are villagers. It will consist of another 100 cards, although only a handful of the 100 have been announced. It has been confirmed with the European version (on a leaflet with the Special card included in the game), that there will be 4 series of Animal Crossing amiibo cards.
