Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival is a very interesting entry in the beloved Animal Crossing series. Not only is it a significant break from series convention, but it was met by some admittedly cold reception when it was announced and a certain degree of uncertainty has surrounded the game ever since. Like it or not, Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival is rapidly hurtling toward release, and it appears that the number of amiibo that the game is centered around have just gone up.

Figures for Resetti, Celeste, Blathers, and Kicks were recently spotted on Nintendo of Japan's website tentatively listed for a 17th December release date. If this holds true, then it's reasonable to assume that the Animal Crossing amiibo will be coming in at least two waves, which could very likely mean there's even more that have yet to be announced. We'll keep you posted if and when more figures surface.
