Second series of Animal Crossing amiibo cards seeing release in South Korea

Series 2 coming soon

South Korea is going to see their second official round of Animal Crossing amiibo cards in the near future. Nintendo of Korea has confirmed that the series will launch on April 16th, 2020, and is priced at 3,500 won. Check out the full set of cards included in Series 2 below.

Animal Crossing amiibo cards see prices surge in Japan due to low stock, some cards bringing in $165

Better than turnips!

A restock on select Animal Crossing amiibo cards is heading to Japan in June 2020, and it is sorely needed. The reseller market for Animal Crossing amiibo cards is skyrocketing right now, even though the last restock happened in March. Some specific cards are worth more than others, and if you happen to have the right ones, you could bring in $165! Of course, the whole series of cards ranges in pricing, with entries going from anywhere to $130 all the way down to $10.

Another Animal Crossing amiibo card restock is hitting Japan in June 2020

Sure to go quickly

Nintendo originally restocked their line of Animal Crossing amiibo cards in Japan in March 2020, but retailers quickly sold out. Now we know that a second restock is on the way, and it's going to launch sometime in early June 2020. Customers will be able to grab the first four sets, along with the “Welcome amiibo” cards. Unfortunately, the Sanrio line of cards will not be restocked.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons glitch could lead to bugged plots of land

Be careful, islanders

Here's a considerable issue Animal Crossing: New Horizons' players will want to keep an eye out for. If you visit the campsite and decide to adopt a villager that another player forced out, the plot of land that villager takes up can end up getting glitched. You'll continue to get a message that says "'s New Home" is on the way, but it never happens. This means you can't place any other new plots afterwards, which obviously causes a problem. This goes for either amiibo or regular random characters.

It's important to note that villagers who decided to move out on their own are perfectly safe, even if they came from amiibo. Hopefully Nintendo is aware of this glitch and has a fix in the works already.

eBaseball Powerful Pro Yakyuu 2020 official website open, "Powerful Edition" revealed, amiibo support confirmed

It's a homerun!

Konami has opened up the official Japanese website for eBASEBALL Powerful Pro Yakyuu 2020, which launches in Japan on July 9th, 2020. The regular version of the game is priced at ¥7,678, and a digital only “Powerful Edition” will be priced at ¥9,878. We aren't quite sure what's included in the Powerful Edition just yet, but those details should be available soon.

The website also confirms that amiibo are supported in the game. It's likely amiibo tied to Konami, like Simon and Richter, will have some sort of special interaction.

Fan-made amiibo mashes up Animal Crossing's Isabelle with the DOOM Slayer

Don’t mess with her!

The Doom Slayer and Isabelle have been getting along famously lately, thanks to a whole fan-art movement. With both Animal Crossing: New Horizons and DOOM Eternal coming out on the same day, fans of both franchises couldn't help but pay tribute to one another.

The latest effort showcasing the love from both sides is a fan-made amiibo that puts Isabelle in the Doom Slayer's suit. We already knew that Isabelle was tough from her Smash Bros. appearance, but this takes things to a whole new level!
