Animal Crossing: New Horizons is compatible with both series regular amiibo figures and the special amiibo cards released for the game, so it should surprise no one that the Happy Home Paradise expansion also supports them to give players the chance of doing things that are not normally possible.
Here’s how to use amiibo in the expansion and what you get for doing so.
How to Use amiibo in Animal Crossing: New Horizons Happy Home Paradise
Using amiibo in Animal Crossing: New Horizons Happy Home Paradise is not too different from using them in the base game, as you will have to access the scanning feature by interacting with a specific object found in a certain location.
To scan an amiibo, you need to head to the Paradise Planning Office and interact with the amiibo scanner on Lottie’s desk. Once this is done, an on-screen prompt will inform you that scanning is ready to go, so use the NFC touchpoint on the controller you are using to scan an amiibo of your choosing. After the amiibo has been scanned, you will get a new client for whom you can build their vacation home, and the client changes depending on the amiibo you have scanned.
Other than getting new clients for your new home designing business, scanning amiibo in Animal Crossing: New Horizons Happy Home Paradise will allow you to invite special characters to the tropical islands and build their vacation homes.
