If you have this game destroy it. because this game sucks!/This is how you not do a party game.

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, you'll have to buy more amiibo figures yourself if you want to play with other people.
  2. There's too little content to justify its price of $60!
  3. Almost nothing interesting happens on the boards, which quickly causes the game to become boring.
  4. There are almost no mini-games, and the boards consist entirely of simply moving from one area to the next to gather "Happiness Points".
  5. The mini-games themselves range from boring to irritating to play through.
  6. The "Stalk Market", in which players can buy and sell turnips every half-dozen turns, is based on luck and woefully underused.
  7. This game plays itself which defeats the entire purpose of this party game.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. It's visually pretty.
  2. It 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.
