How to Use Amiibo and Amiibo Cards
Head to the Resident Services / Town Hall area where Tom Nook and Isabelle reside. Use the kiosk on the side to use your Amiibo or Amiibo Cards. Tap them on the NFC touchpoint (the joystick on the right joycon).
It will recognize what Amiibo it is and, if it’s in the game it will work!
Some Villagers brought in via Amiibo use can be invited to the campsite.
What is Photopia?
You can also use some Amiibo and Amiibo cards to bring villagers to a Photo Studio called Photopia. This area exists as an elaborate photobooth for you and the villagers.
Dress them up as you like then strike a pose.
