Receive Posters Of Guests

You'll be able to order posters of characters whose amiibos you've scanned in the game. This can be done at the Nook Port terminal. However, you'll still need to pay bells for these posters - they're not free.

Posters will only become available after you've done a photoshoot on Harvey's Island. They'll be added to the Nook Shopping interface at that point.

How To Make Amiibo Move To Island


StepWhat To Do
Advance in the game up until you unlock the Campsite
Prepare your amiibo
Scan your amiibo at the Nook Stop
Talk to an animal at the campsite
Listen to the animal's request
(Get a recipe)
Repeat steps 3-5 the next day
(Do this a total of 3 times)
Talk to them until you get the option to ask them to move to your island
Set up a new plot OR swap them out with an animal in an existing house to confirm the new resident
They'll move to your island the next day

Hear Out The Animal's Request


Oh, is that the barbell I asked for? Is it ready?!!!

When you speak with an animal at the campsite, they'll ask you to bring them something like an item. If you don't have this item or can't make it, they'll also give you a recipe! Just gather the materials and put it together.

Repeat 3 Times


Thank you so much! Take this Nurse Cap as a token of my thanks!!!!

When you turn in the item they've requested, the animal's opinion of your island will improve. While their impression of your island is still low, you won't be able to invite them to become residents. In order to invite them, you'll have to give them an item 3 times!

Might Need To Kick Out An Existing Villager


Choose a villager to negotiate with.!!!

You'll need available space on your island. If your island is already full, you'll have to swap them out with someone else (which is a nice way of saying you'll have to forcibly remove someone.)

Or Set Up A New Lot

If you haven't set up the maximum number of houses on your island, putting up land for sale and creating a new lot is also an option! This method spares you from having to go through the painful task of evicting a poor animal.
