    If you owned the original acnl, and bought the welcome amiibo version, would you have two seperate save files, or not? (seperate villagers, town, etc.) Also, can you streetpass yourself?

    I think Welcome Amiibo is a free update. It didn't duplicate my save files.

    you can buy acnl welcome amiibo for $20, even if you have the original acnl updated to welcome amiibo

    So what I am trying to say is that, if you have acnl, and update it, and but the welcome amiibo version, would you have two separate saves? or naw

    No, just one save, if you played it before the update, it just changes to the new version. Each card will only have one town. Not sure if you can buy multiple digital copies. You would need 2 systems and 2 games if you want to streetpass yourself, or at least a different system and set up one of the other saves (not Mayor) on the other system. I did this with my children's saves when we only had 1 copy of the game.
