Series 5 of the Animal Crossing amiibo cards has been confirmed to feature 48 cards. Only 33 cards were shown off in the recent Animal Crossing: New Horizons direct, so it may be possible that even more villagers that have been cut could make a return! Could we see the Nintendo-themed characters that were added in New Leaf make a return like Ganon, Wolf Link, and Inkwell?
