A few more details have surfaced for Nintendo’s recently announced Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival, some of which are interesting and others which really turn me away from this game. One of the features used in this game is one similar to Mario Party 10’s Amiibo Party, where to roll a dice you have to have to pass the gamepad around and tap an Amiibo to roll the dice, the thing that truly turned me off was tapping the Amiibo’s which is more a chore then you would think and is a stupid feature. Either way here are the latest details for the game:

– use amiibo to roll
– toggle to see what can happen ahead of where you roll
– earn happy points and bells
– corner of the screen shows an overall board map
– every turn corresponds to one day in Animal Crossing
– events come up based on date
– there’s character backstory that you’ll hear
– each game can be played as a full month
– the date/month you pick will impact how the board looks
– events you land on on the board get you various happy points
– whoever has the most happy points at the end of the game wins
– bells will be converted to happy points
– animals live in the town
