Animal Crossing: New Horizons' Mario Items Now Live
New Horizons' 1.8.0 update has arrived and introduces Super Mario clothes, furniture items, and more to the Switch life sim.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons' Mario update has arrived. The game's 1.8.0 patch is now available to download, and it introduces a line of Super Mario-themed furniture, clothing, and other items to the popular Switch life sim, as well as a handful of new seasonal items.
Although Nintendo rolled out the 1.8.0 update on February 25, the new Mario items have just gone live in the game. You can now order the Mario items from Nook Shopping beginning today, March 1, and they include question blocks, Super Mushrooms, Thwomps, fire flowers, and outfits based on Mario, Luigi, Wario, and Princess Peach.
You'll also be able to order warp pipes and place them around your island. Unlike most of the other Mario furniture, these aren't merely decorative; if you place two at different points around your island and enter one, you will emerge from the other, just like in the Mario games. If you've placed more than two, the pipe you emerge from will be chosen randomly.
Unlike in previous Animal Crossing games, it appears the Mario items in New Horizons will be easily attainable; you'll be able to buy them with bells from the "promotion" section of Nook Shopping, which is where the Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp items are also found. Everyone who downloads and installs the update will also receive a free Mushroom mural wallpaper in the mail.
You can see the full list of Mario items confirmed in Nintendo's February 2021 Direct below. Many of these items were in previous Animal Crossing games as part of the Mario item set; the mushroom platforms and rugs are new to the series, while this set is apparently missing the cannon and fire bar, which were in previous games.

Nintendo will be rolling out another update for New Horizons on March 18, and this one will introduce Sanrio-inspired villagers and items to the game.
