The Animal Crossing Sanrio crossover has proved once again that our island getaways can, indeed, get even cuter. As of March 18, 2021, the 1.9 update finally allowed players to scan Sanrio amiibo cards and bring fun new villagers, items, and clothing into the game. Excited to see what cool things you can collect? Awesome! We’re here to gush about them with you.
Note: These cards originally released in the UK and Japan a few years ago but never made it to the United States until now. Unfortunately, the cards are only available at Target, which has proven to be in short supply. If you’re willing to pay more, you can get them from Amazon.

Given the cute nature of Animal Crossing, it’s no wonder that Sanrio wanted to collaborate with one of the best Nintendo Switch games of all time.
