This Amazing Isabelle Figure Is Up For Pre-Order Again
Animal Crossing's Isabelle returns in Nendoroid form with this cute figure, which is back up for pre-order just in time for Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
Animal Crossing fans, the wait is over: Animal Crossing: New Horizons is finally out now on Nintendo Switch. In the new game's wake, there's been an influx of Animal Crossing merchandise that's just too cute to handle. One of our favorite pieces of Animal Crossing merch has been hard to find for a while, but it's coming back into stock later this year. The Isabelle Nendoroid released for Animal Crossing: New Leaf is back up for pre-order, releasing this September. It's available for $44.
The adorable Nendoroid figure for Isabelle (or "Shizue," as she's known in Japan) features her iconic look from New Leaf, and her trademark hair accessory actually includes a real bell that makes noise. The Nendoroid also includes multiple accessories like musical notes, a clipboard and pen, and a question mark to recreate her various poses from the game. The figure, which is painted partially by hand, comes with a stand that you'll need to use; Isabelle won't balance on her own. The figure is just under four inches, so it won't take up too much space.
This is the fourth release for this Isabelle Nendoroid, which first hit the market in October 2013 and was subsequently re-released in 2016 and 2019. Although the release date is still months away, pre-orders are only open for a limited time. You can pre-order the Isabelle Nendoroid now until April 16 at midnight PT / 3 AM ET.

"So far, I've played Animal Crossing: New Horizons for 80 hours over 17 days, and that anticipation hasn't yet gone away," wrote editor Kallie Plagge. "While I've spent a lot of time developing my island so far, I still feel as if there's plenty left for me to do and see--there's a lot in New Horizons to occupy your time with."
