    Scanning amiibo Cards will let you invite villagers to visit the new RV Park feature
    You can get new "exclusive RV" furniture
    You can get the villagers on the amiibo cards to move into your town by scanning them and persuading them ingame
    amiibo figures will bring characters into the RV park and they will also sell furniture that you can't get in the base game.
    Two new minigames: Puzzle League and Desert Island Escape
    amiibo camera feature lets you take pictures of your amiibo characters together
    Town Initiative lets you earn MEOW coupons, which can be redeemed for special items at the RV campground
    Secret Storeroom which gives you an "invisible closet" that you can access from "anywhere"
    Now you can organize furniture with the touchscreen like in Happy Home Designer
    Happy Home Designer furniture is available in New Leaf
    Club Tortimer now lets you turn off chat for trolls online
    Now you can sell your town in order to start a new game with a lot of money to begin with

    Wouldn't it be funny if they announced a legit animal crossing HD game for the Wii U. It probably won't happen but boi would it be awesome if it did.

    Nintendo said this will have no Mobile or Switch reveals, what a shame. A Wii U game this far into the life span would seem highly unlikely, but I would love to see it happen. It's probably going to only be about the New Leaf update.

    Perhaps they also announce an HD remaster for the NS.
    (Wait, that would actually be legit NS news, no chance)

    I don't think this is for a new animal crossing game, just amiibo support.
