In today's Animal Crossing Direct, Nintendo revealed a little more about the amiibo functionality available in the game. The good news? All of your old cards and figures will have a pretty nifty use after all!

Yes, your collection of amiibo is fully compatible with the new game and can be used to invite your favourite characters to your campsite. There's more, too, as your amiibo can also be used to invite an animal to an island called Photopia, where you can model your friends in creative photo shoots.

Not all amiibo will be compatible from launch - the Direct showed that K.K. Slider's amiibo isn't supported - but plans to include these are planned for the future.

If you're hoping to get the most out of island life, make sure to keep your beloved amiibo on hand when the game launches on 20th March!
