After the NFC-Bank shutdown, it’s been hard to find amiibo bin files. This website aims to remedy that, and provide tutorials on NTAG215 and amiibo card-related matters. You can see our full list of every way to make amiibo here, and you should also reference our guides listed in the menu above for more information.
There’s Been Some Difficulty With Tagmo and the New Bins. Check the Tagmo Guide to Get the Newest Version – if That Doesn’t Work, try an putting the files in a subfolder titled “tagmo”.

The Series 5 Animal Crossing amiibo cards have a bin dump now! You can find it here!
Bear in mind that Tagmo is occasionally having issues reading these bins. Try an older version of Tagmo, or make sure that the bins AND Tagmo are installed on the base storage of your phone. This often happens when new amiibo are released, and the dev hasn’t had time to update the directory on the app.
You can find a dump of every amiibo bin file here.
How You Can Help
If you find something, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a link and explanation of how to access the files. In the meantime, I’d recommend trying to buy Animal Crossing amiibo cards from card sellers at a discount rate. You can find them here – be advised that Amiibo Doctor is part of the Amazon Affiliates program, so we get a small cut from purchases, and we appreciate whatever support you may provide!
What are the Key-Retail and Unfixed-Info bin files?
These two files are the tools to decrypting the amiibo. When combined, they activate a program that decrypts your amiibo – separately, they can’t do anything. You need these for use in Tagmo.
How can I make amiibo cards with amiibo bin files?
Good question – the specific process depends on the methods available to you. However, there’s a few universal steps regardless of how you choose to make amiibo cards.
- NTAG215 chips that haven’t been written to
- The specific method you’re going to use to write amiibo cards (almost always a cell phone with NFC)
- Amiibo bin files
The steps are pretty straightforward.
- Open the app and hold up the unwritten NTAG chip to the NFC point on your phone.
- Select “Write Tag” or similarly-named option on your app
- Wait for the phone to write to the NTAG chip
- Scan the chip into your Switch to confirm you wrote the correct amiibo file
That’s pretty much it! There’s a few other uses for amiibo as well, like using them so get villagers in New Horizons or extra equipment in Splatoon, so check amiibo.life to see what they can do!
Where can I get NTAG215 chips for amiibo cards?
We recommend a few specific Amazon sellers for NTAG215 chips. Bear in mind that, while these will all produce amiibo with the same function, the format will make it a bit more or less convenient to use depending on how you intend to use the amiibo. The format determines whether you make an amiibo cardstock (with cardstock), an amiibo coin (with an NTAG disc) or an amiibo sticker (also with an amiibo sticker).

You can buy NTAG chips from a lot of websites, but places like AliExpress charge around the same rates and the shipping takes much, much longer. AliExpress is only good for when you need to buy, say, a hundred thousand chips. And if you need to buy a hundred thousand NTAG215 chips… I don’t wanna know why.
What can I do with Series 5 Amiibo Cards in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?
1. Invite to campsite
Use the Nook Stop terminal at Resident Services, and select Invite Amiibo camper. The game will prompt you to scan an Amiibo card. If a character is currently in your campsite, the game will allow you to eject them with the villager you’ve just scanned in. However, you can only use this once per day.
Talk to Orville at the seaport and tell him you want to fly to Harv’s Island. Once you’re there, go to Photopia by talking to Harv again. From there, you can scan in your amiibo and use them in a photoshoot, even if that villager is not currently in your town or campsite.
3. Brewster’s Cafe (The Roost)
Once you’ve entered The Roost, you can use the amiibo phone on the counter to call up villagers that you have the amiibo cards for. The villager, once scanned, will enter the cafe and have a conversation with you.
4. Happy Home Paradise Content
If you’ve purchased the Happy Home Paradise expansion pack, you can create houses for your amiibo villagers. Simply call them on the amiibo Phone and move through the dialogues until you’re designing their house! This works with nearly every Animal Crossing villager card that has been created, even special characters.
