This is all happening via the power of Amiibo cards. There are six cards, one for each villager, that you can scan into your Switch like any other villager Amiibo. Once scanned, the Sanrio villager will enter the campsite and the items and clothing will be available at your Nook Stop! Luckily, you don’t need to add the villager to your island to get the items; some of them have very particular aesthetics… Continue reading Nook’s Cranny #8 – Animal Crossing: New Horizons x Sanrio
