Nintendo has announced that a new set of Animal Crossing amiibo cards are headed our way, although a release date hasn't yet been set.

The new cards will arrive as Series 5, joining the already existing Series 1 - 4 cards that have been popping in and out of stock over the past few months. Nintendo says that "details on this card series will be announced at a later time."

The company stops short of telling us when that time will be, but it wouldn't be surprising to see more details on the new collection in the upcoming Animal Crossing Direct. That presentation, which will show off new content promised for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, will be airing in October.

Will you be hoping to get your hands on these? Have you already picked up some of the earlier cards? We'd love to hear about your collections in the comments below.
