Sanrio unveils Nintendo collaboration on Animal Crossing

Items, clothing and new residents inspired by Sanrio characters come to Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.

Last week saw Animal Crossing: New Horizons welcome new residents and items inspired by popular Sanrio characters, with the launch of the Animal Crossing Sanrio Collaboration Pack.

The pack includes all six amiibo cards from the unique Sanrio Collaboration Series. The cards are compatible with Animal Crossing: New Horizons and each come with a different theme inspired by various Sanrio characters.

After updating the game to the latest version, players will be able to tap the Sanrio amiibo cards to their Nintendo Switch to unlock exclusive posters to order in-game, along with furniture and fashion items inspired by the Hello Kitty, Pompompurin, Cinnamonroll, My Melody, Little Twin Stars and Kerokerokeroppi.

Players can use the items to dress up and decorate their island to the theme of their favourite Sanrio characters. Six exclusive residents matching the various themes can be invited to the player’s campsite and can move to the player’s island.

The residents can also be invited to Harvey’s island for a photo shoot session.

The collaboration will also see Sanrio characters appearing in the Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp mobile game. The Sanrio Characters Collection 2021 in-game event – which began on 26 March – will run through until 10 May.
