Turn your island into a Mario course with these Mushroom Kingdom items
Mario items and outfits are now in Animal Crossing!
New Horizons continues to be one of the best Nintendo Switch games because new updates and experiences keep getting added to it. The recent Animal Crossing Mario update is one of the most exciting ones so far since it allows us to obtain Mushroom Kingdom outfits and items. After you’ve collected them, you can turn your island into a Mario level. Want to know what you can get? Let’s dive in.
There are also new Animal Crossing items for Pi Day, Shamrock Day, and Doll’s Festival. Check it out if you want to learn more.

How to buy Mario items in Animal Crossing
New Mario items and clothing are available starting March 1, 2021 after players download the Animal Crossing: New Horizons 1.9 update. To purchase these 33 Mario items, you’ll need to go to the promotional tab of Nook Shopping and then spend Bells to acquire everything.
Remember that you can only purchase five items a day and you’ll need to wait until the next day to get your orders in the mail. That means it will take a minimum of seven days to purchase all of them.
It will cost you 75,650 Bells to purchase one of each of the 33 Mario items. But you’ll probably want to purchase more than one of a few things like the Coins.
Here are all of the sweet Mushroom Kingdom items players can purchase during the Mario event. Many items react when touched. For instance, the Super Star spins faster and the Thwomp comes crashing down. The most exciting thing is that by buying two Pipes and then putting them in different areas of your island, players can warp directly between the two points. You can even warp directly into houses. If there are more than two pipes on your island, you’ll randomly come out of one of them.
By acquiring a number of different clothing items, players can dress up as Mario, Luigi, Wario, and Peach. I see Waluigi has been snubbed again.
Is Mario coming to Animal Crossing?
The big man has never come to a past Animal Crossing game. As such, I’m more inclined to think that we won’t see the plumber or any other Mushroom Kingdom friends. But it’s still fun being able to get cool Mario-themed clothes and items.
Past Animal Crossing Mario cameos
In City Folk, players eventually were able to add Mario clothing and decorations to their inventory. Some items reacted when touched, while others were completely stationary. I love how they took eight-bit items and created them in a 3D space.
- ? Block
- 1-Up Mushroom
- Brick Block
- Fire Bar
- Fire Flower
- Green Pipe
- Koopa Shell
- Super Mushroom
- Toad Hat
- Mario Hat
- Luigi Hat
Are Zelda items coming to Animal Crossing?
In addition to Mario items, players could also collect Zelda decorations and clothes in past Animal Crossing titles. Since Mario is making its way into New Horizons, I fully expect Zelda items to come into the Switch game as well. Here are some of those items from past games.
- Heart Container
- Hero of Time Scroll
- Hylian Shield
- Master Sword
- Lon Lon Milk
- Termina’s Moon
- Hyrule Wall
- Zelda Floor
- Gossip Stone
- Fairy Bottle
- Cucco Ornament
- Treasure Chest
Animal Crossing Mario update
I’ve been having so much fun creating a Mario course on my island. It will take some time to acquire everything since we can only order five items a day, but it’s going to be worth it!
