Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival is a spin-off board game-style party game in the Animal Crossing series, similar in fashion to the Mario Party series. The game is based upon Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and features many of the series' characters as the playable cast, accessible by using amiibo figures.

The game was launched exclusively as part of a retail bundle with the Isabelle (Winter Outfit) and Digby (exclusively available with the bundle at launch) amiibo figures, and three exclusive amiibo cards: Rosie, Goldie, and Stitches.

You party animal!

The Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival game is a brand-new way to play with your favorite Animal Crossing characters. Your amiibo figures are front-and-center in this party game, and you’ll get to use them with fun content. Bring to life an expansive and dynamic board game where the board is based on the months of the year like the core Animal Crossing series. The goal? Make your villager the happiest in town and party hard with your friends.


  • Party with favorite Animal Crossing characters like Isabelle and Tom Nook—who have become amiibo.
  • Experience the Animal Crossing universe in light-hearted board games based on the calendar, including the four seasons and seasonal events.
  • Bring your amiibo to the party, collect Happy Points, play with your friends, and save your Happy Points to your amiibo to expand your own game even more.
  • Use Animal Crossing amiibo cards in fun minigames.


The main gameplay is similar to most Mario Party games. Players tap their Animal Crossing amiibo to determine which character they will be before playing. Players spend one month in the village and move around the board by rolling a die, the goal to collect the most "Happy Points" by the end of the game. Players are also given Bells, the currency of the Animal Crossing series, which they can gain and lose by landing on certain spaces. Events may also happen at various points in a game.

A set of minigames is also available, which can be unlocked with Happy Tickets earned by playing the main game. The minigames use the Animal Crossing amiibo Cards to play rather than the figurines.

Using the Animal Crossing amiibo cards, players can transfer their animals' homes from Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer.[1]
