September 13th marked the 35th anniversary of the Super Mario Bros franchise. Nintendo sent a Direct out of the blue, confirming that there will definitely be a crossover with the two franchises. This isn’t the first time it’s happened in Animal Crossing; the previous games received Mario furniture.

- Toad Hat
- Big Bro Mustache
- Wario Hat

Nintendo seems to make it a staple of each Animal Crossing game- even Pocket Camp! Nintendo ran a MAR10 Day, celebrating Mario. Coming back to Animal Crossing: New Horizons, there are no details out, sadly. However, I’d think it will be similar to the events before. Brick blocks, green pipes and question blocks to spruce up your island, perhaps. There could also be some Mario inspired clothing and maybe some extra accessories as well!
Can’t wait? We can’t either. However, there’s just one snag.
The Super Mario furniture won’t be appearing till March 2021. While it’s a perfect way to kick off ACNH’s first birthday, it’s still a bummer.
If you miss Super Mario however, Nintendo confirmed the return of several classic Mario games to the Switch! And if you just wish you could get the furniture faster? Well, there’s always custom created patterns if you want to make clothes!
