The amiibo Camera feature will allow you to take photos of Animal Crossing characters as if they were living in the real world, likely similar to the AR Games application that comes pre-loaded on every Nintendo 3DS system.
Details are light right now, but we expect that you’ll need to scan compatible Animal Crossing amiibo cards to your system “summoning” them into the camera for taking photos. We’re pretty certain this will extend to special characters too and not just villagers, as one of Nintendo’s sample pictures features Isabelle and Digby.
Stay tuned to Animal Crossing World for more on Animal Crossing: New Leaf’s Welcome amiibo Update as we get closer to the release this fall. Don’t forget that the Animal Crossing Direct is scheduled for November 2nd, at least in Japanese!
