Nearly 12 months after its initial launch, Animal Crossing: New Horizons is going to welcome six new residents into your game - and they are generally all adorable Sanrio-themed characters.

In a brief trailer, Nintendo announced the Sanrio Collaboration Pack of amiibo cards coming exclusively to Target on March 26. The cards had previously been available only in select regions, this also is the first time they will debut in the United States. Scanning these cards in Animal Crossing: New Horizons will let players Buy Animal Crossing Bells and invite these residents to reside in their in-game towns, and this will allow them to order themed items in the in-game store to brighten their homes and towns.

This would be the first time New Horizons has gotten new residents, although addition is just not without precedent. In Animal Crossing: New Leaf's Welcome amiibo update, the sport added numerous new villagers themed around The Legend of Zelda that is certainly obtained by scanning actual amiibo: W. Link, Medli, Ganon, and Epona. These four characters never have appeared in New Horizons in spite of amiibo, however. The six Sanrio characters were also included with New Leaf currently, nonetheless cards - the best way to unlock them - weren't readily available in the United States.

At the moment, it seems like all six characters appear in a single pack of Sanrio cards so that you don't have to bother about random chances because you do with normal amiibo card packs. However, given how popular a few of these characters are, we have a chance this leads to scalpers buying in the cards and selling them for high prices at trusted online stores - so mind that when you are trying to order them.

New Horizons got a different themed change to the action today with all the 35th-anniversary celebration of Mario. Today's update enables players to obtain quite a few Mario-themed costumes and items - though, sorry, no Mario-themed villagers for the present time. The game also just lately concluded its Festivale event for February, which means, sadly, Bunny Day is being shown to people there once again.
