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!

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 items

Here are all of the sweet Mushroom Kingdom items players can purchase during the Mario event. Many items react when touched. For instance, the Super Star spins faster and the Thwomp comes crashing down. By buying two Pipes and then putting them in different areas of your island, players can even warp directly between the two points.

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.

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 for March to come. It's going to be fun decorating our island like Mario courses and then running through them.
