Vimercate, 22 February 2016 - This Saturday February 27, 2016, from 15pm to 00pm, in some stores GameStop selected will be held a day dedicated to all collectors of carte amiibo!
Amiibo cards are the latest addition to Nintendo that allows you to interact in completely new ways with your favorite games, such as Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. In this game, the amiibo cards from the Animal Crossing series allow you to unlock exclusive features not unlockable in other ways. Placing a particular character's amiibo card on the lower screen of New Nintendo 3DS o New Nintendo 3DS XL (or on the NFC reader / writer accessory if you own Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL or Nintendo 2DS), the character in question appears in the game, making a request for the decoration of a house. Or you can use amiibo cards to invite characters to one of the houses you've already furnished, or to assign them public duties, as a schoolmaster.
On Saturday 27 February from 15:00 to 18:00 you can go to one of the participating GameStop stores and exchange your amiibo cards with other collectors. You will be able to exchange your cards even with the store staff: just give one of your cards and choose another from those available and that's it.
Here is the list of stores participating in the initiative:
· GameStop - Galassia shopping center, Piacenza
· GameStop - Meridiana shopping center, Lecco
· GameStop - Pontedera shopping center, Pontedera
