NA: Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival Bundle Now Available To Pre-Order On Amazon

We posted earlier this week about the Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival bundle going live on Amazon UK, and the option has now become available to pre-order the title on Amazon US. The bundle includes a physical copy of the game, Isabelle and Digby amiibo, and three amiibo cards. It’s available to pre-order for $59.99 and you can do so here.

However, it is notable that the Amazon US pre-orders are advising that the item will be released on December 31st, when the release date for this title is November 13th – so your item may turn up later than release date. Over on Amazon UK, the pre-orders are now unavailable.
