Thanks to the Animal Crossing: New Leaf Welcome amiibo update, minigames have returned to the series. As a nod to the Nintendo 64 and GameCube versions of the games, which allowed people to acquire Nintendo Entertainment System games like Balloon Fight, Donkey Kong, and Mario Bros., Animal Crossing: New Leaf now has playable Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Wii U consoles. Acquiring the systems, either from Fortune Cookies or Animal Crossing NFC figures like Tom Nook and the Villager, will allow you to play Animal Crossing Puzzle League and Desert Island Escape.
Daan “NintenDaan” Koopman has uploaded gameplay footage of Animal Crossing: New Leaf’s Animal Crossing Puzzle League and Desert Island Escape, with the former available on in-game Nintendo 3DS systems and the latter on the in-game Nintendo Wii U. Each one spends over 20 minutes showing off gameplay.
