Appearances Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Harv's Island is a location introduced in Animal Crossing: New Horizons where Harvey lives. On this island is Photopia, a building where the player is able to set up shots and take photos with villagers.

To unlock the island, the player needs to speak to Harvey when he visits on roughly third day of island living. He tells the player that he owns his own island and invites them to visit. The island can be accessed for free from the airport. After arriving, Harvey explains that there's a building here called Photopia and explains how to use it.


Photopia is the building located on Harv's Island where players can set up photo shoots. The player is able to access items they have unlocked in the Nook Shopping Catalog and configure indoor scenes with the intent to stage photos. The player can place furniture, change wall and flooring and invite the villagers currently living on their island. Using amiibo cards and select amiibo figurines enables the player to summon the rest of the Animal Crossing: New Horizons cast of villagers and some special characters. In addition, the invited characters can be dressed up and can express emotions the player has unlocked on cue. To capture a photo, the player uses the Camera app on their NookPhone.

Using amiibo[edit]

An example of a photoshoot involving a player and the 10 villagers living on their island.

Once inside Photopia, the player may tap an amiibo and that character's model will appear inside. The player has the ability to rotate and position the character, including sitting.

After scanning an amiibo and returning to the player's home island, Harvey will call via Nook Phone and mention that posters of the scanned amiibo characters are available for purchase from Nook Shopping. Not all amiibo will be able to be summoned in Photopia, though posters may still be available.
