With the Animal Crossing Switch, people will get a second chance at the system released back on March 13, 2020. It has custom seafoam green and light blue Joy-Cons, a Nintendo Switch with Animal Crossing designs on the back, and a dock that has Tom Nook, Timmy, and Tommy on an island. It’s $299.99, though Wario64 pointed out GameStop is selling it with an Animal Crossing: New Horizons download code for $359.99.

As for the Animal Crossing amiibo cards, the four series originally released will all return to stores. Each pack will be $5.99 and include six random NFC cards. These can then be used in Animal Crossing: New Horizons to invite the villager on the card to your campground and convince them to move to your island. Nintendo’s official site offers a look at all 400 cards in the collection, so you can determine which series your favorite characters are in. Japan got its restock back in June 2020.
