It’s been a while since a new Animal Crossing amiibo released, but the drought is over with the release of a new Isabelle amiibo figure today!
The newly released Isabelle amiibo figure is part of a new series of amiibo for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Naturally then, it’s based on Isabelle’s appearance as a fighter inside that game sporting her summertime outfit.
There’s not a whole lot of differences between the Animal Crossing Isabelle amiibo for Amiibo Festival, but the main change is her more action-y pose as a Smash fighter, rather than the standstill look of the original figures. She’ll also fit right next to other Smash Bros. amiibo. as they share a gold trophy design base.
As for potential compatibility in the upcoming Animal Crossing: New Horizons next year, we don’t know for sure if this figure will be supported. It’s a good possibility though as the Villager Smash amiibo figure did unlock a special item in Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer.
Even if support for this particular figure is up in the air though, amiibo figure support as a whole in New Horizons has been confirmed by the developers in a French interview during E3 2019, among other tidbits about the game.
