Nintendo just combined two of their biggest properties, Animal Crossing and Amiibo, to form Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival.
The game appears to be a sort of Mario Party style game, with characters moving around a board game sort of arena.
While the latest Mario Party featured some Amiibo functionality, it looks like Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival will put a heavier emphasis on the figures.
Tom Nook, K.K. Slider, and Isabelle Amiibo were shown, with more certainly coming if the game becomes successful. The Animal Crossing Amiibo cards will likely play a big part as well.
This might not be a full-fledged Animal Crossing game for Wii U, but it should be a great new entry in the franchise for fans to try out. How the board game elements will play out should be revealed later, so check back for more as Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival moves toward its release this holiday season.
E3 2015 is just getting started, so keep checking back here for all the latest news and updates straight from the convention.
