Japanese Developer, Nintendo announced that Animals Crossing Sanrio Themed Amiibo Cards will be released on March 26, 2021. They will work with Animal Crossing: New Horizons. These cards were never released in the United States until now. In 2016 Nintendo only released them in UK 🇬🇧 and 🇯🇵 Japan.
Although these cards are compatible with Animals Crossing: New Horizons, but you can only use them on Harvey’s Island. After you scan the amiibo card to your Switch console, you will just need to purchase the respective character items from Nook’s Shopping. You can see your Sanrio-Themed special Poster, at the Special Shopping section in Nook. After unlocking the posters you can then re-order them multiple times and trade them with your friends.
WHAT DO YOU GET AFTER BUYING THEM?
The Animal Crossing Sanrio Collaboration Amiibo cards Pack has the following :
Note: Each Card features a villager inspired by a Sanrio Character, and appropriately themed furniture.
- Rilla, Inspired by Hello Kitty.
- Marty, Inspired by Pompompurin.
- Etoile, Inspired by Kiki & Lala
- Chai, Inspired by Chinnamonroll
- Chelsea, Inspired by My Melody.
- Toby, Inspired by Kerokerokeroppi.
Where to Unlock?
You can unlock the Sanrio Characters only by traveling to Harvey’s Island and then scanning the amiibo cards one by one into your Nintendo Switch Console.
There is also a bit of speculation going on regarding whether or not you can invite Sanrio-themed villagers to your town campsite. And also if they can stay there permanently or not. If you live in the U.S read below to find out where can you buy Sanrio Themed Amiibo Cards.
