Support for the Animal Crossing Sanrio amiibo cards has finally been added to Animal Crossing: New Horizons. If you want a whole suite of adorable Sanrio clothing, furniture, and other items, you'll want to get your hands on the Animal Crossing Sanrio cards. 

They come as a collection of six cards, each embodying a different iconic Sanrio character with their home and style: Rilla the ape (Hello Kitty), Marty the cub (Pompompurin), Etoile the sheep (Kiki and Layla), Chai the elephant (Cinnamoroll), Chelsea the goat (My Melody), and Toby the rabbit (Kerokerokeroppi).

Here's a step-by-step guide on how to take full advantage of what they have to offer when you've got them. 

1. Get your hands on the Animal Crossing Sanrio amiibo cards

The Animal Crossing Sanrio amiibo cards were originally released in 2016 for Animal Crossing: New Leaf, but they are now being re-released again so players have a chance to grab them for themselves. For Animal Crossing: New Horizons, they will unlock a range of related items for each character / Sanrio property, and give you the option to add that villager to your island.

They officially go on sale again on March 26. In the US, the Animal Crossing Sanrio amiibo Cards will be released exclusively at Target for $5.99. It doesn't look like there will be pre-orders so make sure to be prompt on March 26 if you want to scoop up the set. 

In the UK, it's not been 100% confirmed, but we'd recommend signing up for stock alerts via the Nintendo Official UK Store. As of the time of writing (March 18), they're still listed as Out of Stock, but keep an eye on this page come March 26.

They are also available via eBay, but obviously are hideously overpriced considering their original sale price. 

2. Head to Harv's Island

Once you've got the Animal Crossing Sanrio amiibo cards, if you only want to get access to all the related items, then head to Harv's Island. Here, within the photography studios, you can tap in each of the six amiibo cards and bring the characters into your game temporarily. This will unlock all of their related items, clothing, and furniture for you to then buy via the Nook Shopping app. 

3. Go to your Nook Shopping App

Within the Promotion tab of your Nook Shopping App you will then find all the Animal Crossing Sanrio items ready for purchasing. Unfortuntately they are subject to the rule of five orders per day, so get ready for quite the slog if you want them all. You unlock 12-14 items per Sanrio card, so it's quite the list of additional items for using on your island, and wearing of course. 

4. Add a new resident if you want to

But you can also add any of the Animal Crossing Sanrio characters as new residents on your island. To do this, you'll need to invite them to your island via the Nook Terminal in Residents Services to your campsite. It's then a case of doing the usual thing of inviting them every day over the course of three or four days and making them presents, until they say they're ready to move in. 

Full instructions for this can be found in our Animal Crossing: New Horizons amiibo guide.
