In celebration of Mario’s 35th anniversary, Nintendo is adding Mario-themed items Animal Crossing: New Horizons. New content will be available on February 25, the developer announced today.
Included in the update are Mario and Luigi’s signature suits, as well as items such as Bowser flags and blocks to make the islands feel a little more in harmony with the bearded plumber. A trailer released alongside the news today has an impressive look at the possibilities, from classic dungeon themes to villagers hanging in costume. The update will be available for free.
Nintendo teased the update earlier this year, although it arrives a little earlier than expected. Animal Crossing: New Horizons continue to hold gaming events year-round to keep the game fresh. Earlier this week, the players received carnival content. The game was launched in March last year, and became a cultural phenomenon – partly due to its random timing along with pandemic locking around the world.
