Hot on the heels of the recent Super Mario Bros. update, Nintendo has revealed that you’ll soon be able to invite six new villagers from popular Sanrio properties to your Animal Crossing: New Horizons island.
If this all sounds a little familiar, that’s likely because Animal Crossing: New Leaf featured a similar promotion that allowed you to add various Sanrio characters to your village. However, it was incredibly difficult to find the cards required to unlock the villagers in that game, which means that many players (especially those in the U.S. where the cards were not previously released) never got the chance to invite them. Besides, this is the first time that new villagers have been added to New Horizons (which could mean that the best and worst villagers “meta” is about to be reshaped).
So whether you’re a huge Hello Kitty fan or you’re just looking for new neighbors, here’s how you buy the Sanrio Animal Crossing Amiibo cards and unlock all of the game’s new content:
If you’re in the United States, you’ll be able to buy the Sanrio Animal Crossing Amiibo Cards exclusively from Target starting on March 26th. Every villager card comes in one pack, and each pack will cost you $6. If you’re in Canada, you’ll have a few more options available to you as the Sanrio Amiibo cards will be sold via Best Buy and other major retailers for CA$7. There’s currently no word on their intended availability in Europe, but you should be able to at least purchase them from Nintendo’s online store.
