Animal Crossing's Next Update Adds More Seasonal Items
In addition to Mario furniture, the next update for New Horizons is introducing items celebrating Pi Day, Shamrock Day, and other March holidays.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons' next content update arrives on February 25. Along with introducing a line of Super Mario items and clothing to the game, the update will add a handful of new seasonal items that will be available to order at various points in March.
As Nintendo detailed on the Animal Crossing website, New Horizons will get seasonal items celebrating the Hinamatsuri festival, Pi Day, and St. Patrick's Day (also known as Shamrock Day in Animal Crossing) throughout March. As usual, you'll be able to order these items via the Seasonal tab in Nook Shopping. Shamrock Day clothing will also be on sale at the Able Sisters' shop next month. You can take a look at the new seasonal items below.
The aforementioned Super Mario items will be available to purchase in the game starting March 1, and they include Super Mushrooms, Thwomps, question blocks, and other Mushroom Kingdom staples, as will outfits based on Mario, Luigi, Wario, and Princess Peach. You'll also be able to purchase a set of warp pipes. Place these at two different points around your island and you'll be able to warp between them quickly.
As an extra bonus for downloading the February 25 update, all players will receive a Mario-themed wallpaper from Nintendo (pictured below). You'll receive this wallpaper in your mailbox later this month after installing the update, before the other Mario items officially go on sale in the game.
Finally, you'll also be able to complete a new Mario My Nintendo mission in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. This mission will be available between March 9-24 and asks you to visit the official Nintendo Dream Island, making it an easy way to complete another mission if you don't yet qualify to snag the second set of Super Mario 35th anniversary pins. You can see other Mario My Nintendo missions on Nintendo's website.
