We already know that the Animal Crossing series has a connection with Nintendo's amiibo range – in fact, it even got a bunch of cool amiibo cards in 2015 – and we also know that Animal Crossing: New Horizons will utilise these NFC-powered products.

However, with New Horizons just over a month away from release, we still don't know exactly how Nintendo plans to use amiibo in the game – so we thought it might be a good idea to look back at how this particular series has been enhanced via both amiibo and (going even further back in time) e-reader cards during the GameCube era.
