Animal Crossing: New Horizons fans: if you don’t yet have enough merch based on the game, you’ll no doubt be wanting to (literally) get your hands on these babies.
Video game peripheral manufacturer PowerA has collaborated with Nintendo to design and release a pair of superb new Nintendo Switch controllers themed around two very special characters from the hit life simulator.
Animal Crossing villagers Tom Nook and the much-loved Isabelle are the stars of the show, each with their own personalized Switch controller designs in pastel yellow and blue. The controllers aren’t being shipped yet, but you are able to pre-order them now via Amazon at least, for $24.99 each.
Each controller includes a 3.5mm audio jack, mappable advanced gaming buttons on the back of the controller, and neither require batteries.
The official release of the controllers is listed as February 14 (the perfect Valentine’s Day gift, anyone?), so you can expect the orders to start shipping from then.
While you’re at it, you might notice that PowerA has a few other awesome Nintendo Switch controllers for sale, each themed around certain Nintendo games. There’s a Pikachu one, a handful of Mario controllers, a fancy Zelda: Breath of the Wild one, and another different Animal Crossing one too.
If you’re in the market for more things with which to deck out your Animal Crossing merch collection, the New Horizons Villager Collection Mini-Figure Set is also set for shelves in June 2021. Unfortunately though, you may need to wait a bit until the manufacturers receive more stock – these things are crazy popular, it seems.
You’ll also want to keep an eye out for the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Sanrio Collaboration amiibo card pack releasing in March. These cards will expand your repertoire of in-game merch, including furniture, outfits, and even some new villagers. Those are coming exclusively to Target stores on March 26.
