The next big update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons is coming soon. The update adds the long-awaited Super Mario Bros. collaboration that was announced early last year. The free update will be available on February 25th.
The update is completely free, but the items won’t be available in the game until March 1st. Players in the northern and southern hemispheres can enjoy the items at the same time. Everyone who updates receives the “Mushroom Mural” as a thank you.

The new items will be available for sale through Nook Shopping in the Residential Services Building. The Promotion tab allows players to choose from a wide variety of items and clothing items. The preview on the Nintendo website shows items such as 1-Up Mushroom, Block, Coin, Platform for Large Mushrooms, and Shell.
Players can also purchase items of clothing that look like their favorite Super Mario Bros characters. Outfits will be available for Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Wario.

There is also Super Mario Bros-themed furniture on offer. Some of the options shown include block floors, Lakitu’s Cloud rug, and Yoshi’s Egg rug. These items make each room look like a level from a Super Mario Bros. game.
One of the special items with a unique function are the warp pipes. Players can place two warp whistles anywhere on their island, including their home, for instant transport to another location. If a player sets up more than two warp whistles, they are transported to a random whistle. A pipe needs enough landing space for it to work properly.
While the collaboration with Super Mario Bros. is highlighted, the month of March brings additional seasonal items. Between February 25th and March 3rd, players can order items based on the “Hinamatsuri” festival. Players can order either the Hinaningyo doll or a flower lantern. One item from the series is available daily.
March 14th is “Pi Day”. Between March 1st and March 14th, players will be able to order items based on the special event. March 17th is “Shamrock Day”. Items based on the tag will be available for Shamrock Soda, Door Panel, and Carpet from March 10th and March 17th. Fashion items are available in the Able Sisters Shop.
Visit to the official Nintendo Island in the game will be part of the My Nintendo Missions. On March 9th and 24th, players can visit the island to commemorate the 35th anniversary of Super mario bros.
