The Villager Statue furniture in Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer is unlocked through the Villager amiibo from the Super Smash Bros. series.
To unlock the statue, head inside the Nook’s Homes building and interact with the Amiibo Phone item. Scan your Villager amiibo from the Super Smash Bros. series into the game by tapping it on either the touch screen if you own a New Nintendo 3DS, or on the NFC Reader/Writer accessory if you are using an original Nintendo 3DS.
After scanning the amiibo, the Villager statue will appear on the screen and will become unlocked. Now you can use the Villager statue as placeable furniture in your homes and in the outdoors while designing and playing the game! Don’t have a Villager amiibo? Find on Amazon here.
