Animal Crossing: New Horizons Welcomes Six New Sanrio-Themed Villagers

Nearly a year after its initial launch, Animal Crossing: New Horizons is about to welcome six new residents into the game — and they’re all adorable Sanrio-themed characters.

In a short trailer, Nintendo announced the Sanrio Collaboration Pack of amiibo cards coming exclusively to Target on March 26. The cards had previously been available only in select regions, and this is the first time they will debut in the United States.

The six cards depict new Animal Crossing town residents themed after the Sanrio characters Hello Kitty, My Melody, Little Twin Stars Kiki and Lala, Pompompurin, Cinnamoroll, and Kerokerokeroppi.

Scanning these cards — the only way to unlock them — in Animal Crossing: New Horizons will let players invite these residents to live in their in-game towns, and will also allow them to order themed items from the in-game store to decorate their homes and towns.

This is the first time New Horizons has gotten new residents.
