Sure, Animal Crossing fans thought Judy and Marshal were cute, but step back, cute country animals. Popular Nintendo gamenext month they will meet the colorful world of Hello Kitty, and things will become even more adorable.
The first software update coming out on March 18 will deliver content from Sanrio, the parent company of Hello Kitty. And on March 26, the Animio Crossing Sanrio collaboration package arrives at Target stores. Content updates are free, but those who want a collaboration package will need to purchase it. It contains six amiibo tickets for Rilla, Marty, Etoile, Chai, Chelsea and Toby, all the villagers who appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf.
He appears to appear with houses, clothes, furniture and props themed for certain Sanri characters, such as Hello Kitty, Cinnamoroll and My Melody. And Pompompurin items currently include an iconic mat with puppies.
“I can’t wait for my hole-shaped rug,” tweeted one fan.
Fans who commented on the YouTube video posted by Nintendo were already afraid that the amiibo card packages would sell out and be available only at high scalper prices.
“And you know that almost no one will get these cards because they will sell out and then resell for insane amounts of money,” one poster wrote.
Others debated which current villagers would be kicked out to make room for new characters, and hoping Nintendo could extend the current peasant limit to more from 10.
The news about Sanri was a surprise to many fans because it isjust started playing in the game on Thursday as well. Since Sanrio’s in-game content will be part of the March 18 update, which is just two days before the game’s one-year anniversary release, it’s possible that the anniversary content could also be part of the software update.
