Warp Pipes, Mario costumes, and much more incoming.
Teased earlier this month, Nintendo has unveiled its Super Mario Bros. collaboration for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. As part of Mario’s 35th anniversary celebration, the free update will add several new items for players to purchase. Check out the announcement trailer below to see them in action.
Some of these items include a Question Block and Mushroom along with the iconic Flagpole and Warp Pipes. The Warp Pipes are especially interesting since you can travel between two of them. This can be used to fast travel between locations on one’s island.
Of course, there will also be costumes for Mario, Princess Peach, Luigi and others to unlock as well. The free update goes live on February 25th for all current game owners but these items will start going live in the Nook Shop on March 1st. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime and news on other updates in the coming months.
