'Animal Crossing: New Horizons' Sanrio collab brings Hello Kitty items to your town
Those Animal Crossing: New Horizons-Sanrio collaboration amiibo cards, which were only previously available in Japan and the EU, are finally arriving in the US on March 26th. Nintendo first announced their stateside release back in January, but now the company is giving you a glimpse of what you can get when you snap up the collaboration pack. The gaming giant has posted videos on YouTube and Twitter showing the villagers you can add to your town, as well as the Sanrio-themed items you'll be able to buy from the in-game store when you scan the amiibo cards.
There are six villagers you can add to your town by scanning the cards, and each one gives you access to specific Sanrio items. The Rilla card adds Hello Kitty-themed furniture and wallpapers to the list of items you can buy, for instance. You'll also get items based on My Melody, Little Twin Stars Kiki and Lala, Pompompurin, Cinnamoroll and Kerokerokeroppi with the other villagers. Each theme has a different set on offer — the Cinnamoroll items have tablets, umbrellas and signage for a cafe, while the Kerokerokeroppi-themed ones include a bridge and koi pond for a Japanese garden.
The New Horizons Sanrio pack will be available exclusively through Target on March 26th for $6. In Canada, it will be sold by retailers, including Best Buy, for CA$7.
Correction: This article originally stated the Sanrio collaboration was for the game Animal Crossing: New Leaf, rather than Animal Crossing: New Horizons. We regret the error.
Sanrio is a Japanese media company that has partnered with Nintendo to add crossover content in the Animal Crossing series. Beginning in Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo, villagers and items based on Sanrio's Hello Kitty, Pompompurin, Little Twin Stars, Cinnamoroll, My Melody, and Keroppi franchises have appeared. Sanrio crossover content has also appeared in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp and Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
The following six villagers are based on Sanrio franchises:
Each of the Sanrio villagers have an amiibo card as part of the Sanrio Collaboration Series. The series was initially released in Europe and Japan alongside the Welcome amiibo update. In January 2021, coinciding with the announcement the 1.7.0 Free Update, Nintendo announced that the Sanrio Collaboration Series would return to retailers in March. They were rereleased on March 26 in North America and Japan and on April 8 in the UK. This was the first time the cards were released in North America.
In Welcome amiibo
The six Sanrio villagers are introduced in Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo. If their amiibo cards are scanned, they can be invited to the campground or asked to move in. Their RVs contain items based on their franchises.
In New Horizons
In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the Cinnamoroll Poster, My Melody Poster, Kiki & Lala Poster, Pompompurin Poster, Kerokerokeroppi Poster, and Hello Kitty Poster can be obtained from Nook Shopping after Chai, Chelsea, Étoile, Marty, Toby, and Rilla's amiibo cards, respectively, are scanned in Photopia.
While initially absent from the game, the Sanrio villagers and items returned in the 1.9.0 Free Update on March 18, 2021. The items can be unlocked for purchase and the villagers can move to the player's island if their amiibo cards are scanned.
In Pocket Camp
The Sanrio villagers and items were added to Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp for a limited time in 2019 as part of the Sanrio Characters Collection. The first collection, released on July 11, included Chai, Rilla, and their respective items; the second, released on July 22, included Chelsea, Marty, and their respective items; and the third, released on August 9, included Toby, Étoile, and their respective items. The characters and items were available until December 2019.
A follow-up to the Sanrio Characters Collection, known as the Sanrio Characters Collection 2021, will be released on March 26, 2021. It will add new Sanrio-themed items and will feature the return of the previously released Sanrio items and villagers.

Sanrio Amiibo Cards: What You Can Use Them For
Special Sanrio Amiibo Cards can be scanned into Animal Crossing: New Horizons for exclusive poster goodies to decorate your house! Learn everything to know about Sanrio Cards in this guide.
These cards featuring various villager designs inspired by Sanrio characters were first introduced with Animal Crossing: New Leaf’s Welcome Amiibo update and are compatible in a limited fashion with New Horizons too!
How To Get Sanrio Posters in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
You can unlock the Sanrio Posters, and all other amiibo posters, by traveling to Harvey’s Island and scanning the corresponding character’s amiibo card into your Nintendo Switch. Amiibo figures and cards can be scanned by tapping to the Right Control Stick on Joy-Cons and the Nintendo Switch Lite, or tapping to the Nintendo Switch logo on the Pro Controller.
To get to Harvey’s Island, head to the Airport and speak with Wilbur at the ticket counter. You can select Harvey’s Island as a destination when choosing where you’d like to travel! Note that you need to have previously met and spoke to Harvey on your own island first for this option to appear.
Once you’ve unlocked a Sanrio poster by scanning the corresponding character at Harvey’s Island, you can order a copy of the poster item at any time from the Nook Shopping menu at either the Nook Stop terminal inside Resident Services or on your NookPhone if you’ve unlocked the app.
The posters can be found under a new tab in the Special Goods section of Nook Shopping separate from the regular item catalog. If you ‘catalog’ an amiibo poster from another player, it can be found and re-ordered by using the Search function. This may be unintended and fixed in a future update though.
However, it’s definitely possible to have a friend with the amiibo cards scanned order a copy of a Sanrio poster for you and trade it! They can even mail you the item directly from Nook Shopping by using the “Order As Gift” function when purchasing the poster.
Fun Fact: These poster designs are actually the artwork included with Sanrio Amiibo Cards packaging when they were originally released in Japan for Animal Crossing: New Leaf! You’ll notice that the posters awkwardly include some elements that don’t even exist in New Horizons like the Kapp’n special character, and that’s why.
Sanrio Villagers in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Unfortunately, the Sanrio inspired villagers introduced in Animal Crossing: New Leaf alongside the release of Sanrio Amiibo cards are not available in Animal Crossing: New Horizons at this time. The only content available for these characters and amiibo cards are the posters mentioned earlier.
However, the Sanrio villagers were also included in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp on smartphones in an event taking place last year, which does give us some hope that the collaboration partnership between the Sanrio company and Nintendo is still alive.
Given that there are many other expected features missing in Animal Crossing: New Horizons so far while we await future content updates, it wouldn’t be surprising if the Sanrio villagers simply didn’t make the cut for initial release and will be arriving later.
It’s definitely interesting that the posters were included, indicating that Nintendo still has rights to include Sanrio content inside of Animal Crossing: New Horizons and leaving open the possibility for those villagers to come too.
How To Get Sanrio Animal Crossing Amiibo Cards
The Sanrio Animal Crossing Amiibo Cards have unfortunately been out of print for years now making it impossible to find these cards in new condition for anywhere near a reasonable price. You can check current Animal Crossing Sanrio Amiibo Card prices on eBay here if you’re interested, but we warn you they’re quite outrageous.
Since the prices are so ridiculous, we do have an alternative option you can check out. A number of sellers on Etsy have created custom replicas of the Sanrio cards and importantly, they have chips inside them that allow the cards to function exactly the same as a real Sanrio amiibo card would! This will allow you to get the Sanrio posters in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
If you’re interested in exploring this alternative option, you can check out some of the sellers with listings for custom fanmade Animal Crossing Sanrio Amiibo Cards on Etsy here.
We usually wouldn’t recommend this route because its legality and morality is a little questionable, but given that the official cards are long out of print making it unreasonably possible to purchase them, we think it’s an understandable choice to make if you really want the Sanrio Amiibo Cards.
Hopefully Nintendo will understand the demand for these special Sanrio Amiibo Cards and re-release a new batch officially soon, but these are the options we’ll have to work with in the meantime until then!

Once, I grinned, looking at the hall, let's go and treat everyone to a drink. I am Dembel or something. I laughed. We took a bottle of vodka, a pack of juice and glasses as a gadget, sat down on the side of the bar and figured out.Sanrio Villagers House Tour

And, without waiting for any answer, she began to untie the belt of the robe in which she was wearing. I was waiting. The belt fell to the floor and she slowly pulled the floors apart. She stood close and my gaze appeared to be of a decent size, slightly saggy breasts, an ordinary female breast with pimpled alveoli around dark nipples.
