Wii U Getting a New, Less Traditional Animal Crossing Game
Later this year, the Wii U is getting a new game that mixes up Animal Crossing with a new set of Amiibo. The game, called Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival, is a board game-like experience with an Animal Crossing-style setting.
Instead of running around your town collecting fish, fossils, and bells, you'll roll a set of dice--the marker you land on will determine whether you find something rare and exciting, or if you have to sacrifice your hard-earned wealth. The game was debuted during Nintendo's E3 2015 presentation, and few details were shown, but it looks like a multiplayer game that will require Amiibo to play.

And as leaked earlier this week, the game's launch will be accompanied by the release of a new set of Animal Crossing Amiibo. You'll be able to pick up Isabelle, Tom Nook, K.K. Slider, and Mabel Able figures.
It was not clear during the reveal what Amiibo would be compatible with the game, but given the title, it's probably safe to assume that the experience will not be limited only to Animal Crossing figures. However, no mention was made of support for the upcoming card Amiibo.
