Animal Crossing is going indoors. During today’s Nintendo Direct the company announced a new game in the popular animal life sim, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. This new game does away with the “chore” aspects of the series and lets you focus on the other, some would say, more important part of the game, designing things. The characters in the game will ask you to design houses for them and you fulfill those requests with new furnishings and decorations to their liking.
To help you with this Nintendo announced a new series of amiibo. These are not the figures like we’ve been used to seeing. No, this time they are a series of cards. The cards contain different characters. By tapping them to the 3DS (or the newly shown off NFC reader/writer) you invite that character into your game and you design houses for them.
Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer launches some time this Fall.
