Animal Crossing Mario items and clothes are coming soon

Some more changes are coming to New Horizons.

New Horizons continues to be one of the best Nintendo Switch games because new updates and experiences keep getting added to it. Nintendo recently explained that an Animal Crossing Mario update is coming in March. We can’t wait to get our hands on all of the cool items coming to our islands. Let’s dive in!

Animal Crossing Mario items:

When will Mario items come to Animal Crossing: New Horizons?

New Mario items and clothing will be available starting March 1, 2021. To purchase them, you’ll need to go to the promotional tab of Nook Shopping and then spend Bells to acquire everything.

Mario Clothes

By acquiring a number of different clothing items, players can dress up as Mario, Luigi, Wario, and Peach. I see Waluigi has been snubbed again.

Is Mario coming to Animal Crossing?

The big man has never come to a past Animal Crossing game. As such, I’m more inclined to think that we won’t see the plumber or any other Mushroom Kingdom friends but instead will be able to get cool Mario-themed clothes and items as was done in past games. Of course, Nintendo could have a surprise in store for us. I’ll keep my ear to the ground and will update when I learn more.

Past Animal Crossing Mario cameos

In City Folk, players eventually were able to add Mario clothing and decorations to their inventory. Some items reacted when touched, while others were completely stationary. I love how they took eight-bit items and created them in a 3D space. Hopefully, some or all of these items come to New Horizons in March.

Are Zelda items coming to Animal Crossing?

In addition to Mario items, players could also collect Zelda decorations and clothes in past Animal Crossing titles. Since Mario is making its way into New Horizons, I fully expect Zelda items to come into the Switch game as well. Here are some of those items from past games.

  • Heart
  • Heart Container
  • Hero of Time Scroll
  • Hylian Shield
  • Master Sword
  • Lon Lon Milk
  • Rupee
  • Termina’s Moon
  • Hyrule Wall
  • Zelda Floor
  • Triforce
  • Gossip Stone
  • Fairy Bottle
  • Bomb
  • Cucco Ornament
  • Treasure Chest

Animal Crossing Mario update

I can’t wait to see what Nintendo has in store for us come March. At the very least, I expect Mario furniture and clothing, but maybe we’ll be pleasantly surprised with some additional crossovers.
