Sanrio-inspired villagers and items are coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons in the game’s March update. Following the update, you’ll be able to invite new villagers and order items themed after Hello Kitty, My Melody, Cinnamoroll, and other Sanrio characters by scanning the Animal Crossing Sanrio Amiibo cards.
Just as in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, there are six Sanrio-inspired villagers in total, one for each of the cards in the Sanrio Amiibo pack. The full list of villagers and the Sanrio character they’re themed after is as follows:
- Hello Kitty – Rilla (gorilla)
- Pompompurin – Marty (cub)
- Kiki & Lala – Étoile (sheep)
- Cinnamoroll – Chai (elephant)
- My Melody – Chelsea (deer)
- Kerokerokeroppi – Toby (rabbit)
From @HelloKitty, My Melody, to Keroppi, get ready to discover new residents, styles & items inspired by adorable @Sanrio friends! The #AnimalCrossing Sanrio Collaboration Pack comes to the US on 3/26, exclusively at @Target! pic.twitter.com/7584E2OL4H

You’ll also be able to order various furniture and clothing items based on the Sanrio characters, such as a Cinnamoroll couch and a Hello Kitty rug. These items and villagers will all be introduced to the game in the 1.9.0 update, which is slated to release on March 18.
