The next major update is coming soon to Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The update adds the long-awaited Super Mario Bros. collaboration that was announced earlier last year. The free update will be available on February 25.
The update is completely free, but the items won’t be available in-game until March 1. Players in both the Northern and Southern Hemisphere can enjoy the items at the same time. Anyone who updates will receive the “Mushroom Mural” as a thank you gift.

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

Super Mario Bros-themed furniture will also be offered. Some of the options shown include Block flooring, Lakitu’s Cloud rug, and Yoshi’s Egg rug. These items will make any room appear like a level from a Super Mario Bros. game.
One of the most special items with a unique feature are the Warp Pipes. Players can place Two Warp Pipes anywhere on their island, including inside their home, to be instantly transported elsewhere. If a player sets up more than two Warp Pipes, they will be transported to a random pipe. A Pipe will need enough landing space for it to work correctly.
While the Super Mario Bros. collaboration is highlighted, the month of March brings additional seasonal items. Between February 25 to March 3, players can order items based on the “Hinamatsuri” festival. Players can order either the hinaningyo doll or a blossom lantern. One item from the series is available daily.
March 14 is “Pi Day.” Between March 1 and March 14, players can order items based on the special event. March 17 is “Shamrock Day.” Items based on the day will be available from March 10 and 17 for shamrock soda, doorplate, and rug. Fashion items will be available through the Able Sisters shop.
Visiting the official Nintendo Island in the game will be a part of the My Nintendo Missions. On March 9 and 24, players can visit the island to commemorate the 35th anniversary of Super Mario Bros.
