I don't really know what else they could do. Maybe using the actual amiibos could give you some special item or make a special thing happen with that character? Seems like they have a bit of room for experimentation with amiibo functionality.
I really do hope NL's amiibo functionality returns though, I just spent 20 dollars on amiibo cards and I don't want it to go to waste.
I definitely agree, I just spent a lot of money getting mine and my husband's dreamies. I definitely don't want that to go to waste. Also just finished ordering the last of the animal crossing amiibos (statue ones) to level up with amiibo festival. I think it would be cool to be able to change NPC's outfits like you can when you level up with amiibo festival. But also would like villagers to be able to do more too. How cool would it be to call villagers over (which was shown as a function on the nook phone) but they help you out with their special ability? (Like for example Rosie's special ability was fishing without a pole)
That actually could be pretty cool, but with how many villagers there are, it could take up a good amount of dev time. The stuff with the special villagers would be really cool though. Being able to change their outfits would fit with how customization everything seems to be in NH.
I super hope there's amiibo connectivity because I love amiibo and I bought all of the AC ones including the cards
I hope there are more themed villagers you can unlock with non-AC amiibo. the more the merrier I say. I only have splatoon and animal crossing amiibo so I wouldn't get much more use out of it than I already do in NL, but I like the idea of people being able to bring things in from their other favourite series.
as for new things to do with them, the only thing I can think of is maybe they could unlock amiibo figures as furniture items? like scan Mable and you can get a little figure of Mable to put in your house.
Visit my dream towns!

CertifiedShrimp: Definitely would understand if they didn't put it in, but I'm hoping they did something more. But if it does at least what NL does, I'd still be a very happy person!
Chiyoko: That would be so cool. Like if you scan kirby you get a mini kirby! OMG! That would be so cute!! I didn't even think of other amiibos, we have a ton. That would be super cool to include them all. <3
Or what about if you scan a non-ac amiibo it gets you like villager happy points depending on what they like. Like scanning link makes some villagers happy. <3
OOOOORRR What if it plays music from that specific game? That would be pretty cool too and easy to code! <3
