The Animal Crossing Sanrio crossover has proved once again that our island getaways can, indeed, get even cuter. As of March 18, 2021, the 1.9 update finally allowed players to scan Sanrio amiibo cards and bring fun new villagers, items, and clothing into the game. Excited to see what cool things you can collect? Awesome! We're here to gush about them with you.
Note: These cards originally released in the UK and Japan a few years ago but never made it to the United States until now. Unfortunately, the cards are only available at Target, which has proven to be in short supply. If you're willing to pay more, you can get them from Amazon.
Hello Kitty and friends
Get those cute villagers and items!
By scanning these amiibo cards, players can get access to unique villagers and their Sanrio-themed items. There are dozens of new items to collect.
What is Sanrio?
Sanrio is a Japanese company that designs and produces products like stationery, bags, pencils, plushes, watches, wallets, and more with adorable cartoon characters on them. This includes popular figures like Hello Kitty, Pochacco, Keroppi, Aggretsuko, and more.
Given the cute nature of Animal Crossing, it's no wonder that Sanrio wanted to collaborate with one of the best Nintendo Switch games of all time.
How to get Sanrio items in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
In order to get cute Sanrio items in Animal Crossing, players will need to scan the six Sanrio Animal Crossing amiibo cards. Additionally, the game will not be able to bring the items into the game until March 18, 2021 when update 1.9 goes live.
These Animal Crossing Sanrio amiibo cards originally released a few years ago, but never made it to the U.S. They are getting reprinted and will be available exclusively at Target for $5.99 starting March 26, 2021. However, Target has warned that supply is limited.
