Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival is a party game for the Wii U published by Nintendo and developed by Nintendo EPD and Nd Cube (current developer of the Mario Party series). The game is an Animal Crossing spin-off and was released worldwide in November 2015.

Why It Sucks

  1. While the game comes with an amiibo figure, if you want to play with other people you'll have to buy more amiibo figures yourself.
  2. Most people would just buy said amiibo and scalp them online.
  3. There's too little content to justify its price of a whopping sixty US dollars!
  4. Almost nothing interesting happens on the boards, which quickly causes the game to become boring.
  5. There are almost no mini-games, and the boards consist entirely of simply moving from one area to the next to gather "Happiness Points".
  6. The mini-games themselves range from boring to irritating to play through.
  7. The "Stalk Market", in which players can buy and sell turnips every half-dozen turns, is based on luck and woefully underused.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Visually pretty.
  2. Game retains the charm of the Animal Crossing series.


Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival was received unfavorably, with a Metacritic score of 46 based on 20 critic reviews. Common criticisms include a lack of interactivity, boring gameplay, and the game existing solely to get people to buy more amiibo.
