'Animal Crossing' Mario items: How to get all 32 pieces in the new update

'Animal Crossing: New Horizons' has crossed over with the 'Super Mario Bros.' series to celebrate 'Mario's 35th anniversary.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons' collaboration with the Mario Bros. series is finally here after being teased since last September. Everything shown off in September's Nintendo Direct is there, which means players can add 32 new Mario items to your vast furniture and clothing collection in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

As there are so many new items, it can be hard to keep track of them all. This is every item added to Animal Crossing: New Horizons as part of the crossover and how you can get them!

But first: How did gaming get you through the pandemic? We want to hear from you! Take this quick Inverse survey.

Make sure your game is fully updated! If you want to get any of the Super Mario Bros. items in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you have to make sure that your game is fully updated. If your game is on version 1.8.0 or later, the Super Mario Bros. items will be available in your game.

The game should automatically update as you try to boot it up, but to check, you can press the + button on the Switch home menu and force the system to look for an update via the internet. Once this is done, start playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and you'll be able to access the Mario items.

How to get every Animal Crossing: New Horizons Mario item

As soon as your game is fully updated, the next time you boot the game up, you'll see a letter from Nintendo in your mailbox. It contains a present: the Mushroom Mural. This is a wallpaper for your home themed after the original Super Mario Bros. This first Mario-themed item is completely free! As such, there's no reason to miss out on this item, which is one of the game's most elaborate wallpapers.

This is far from the only Super Mario Bros. item in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, though. Several new clothing pieces themed after characters like Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Wario are available. You can also decorate your island with new furniture that creates Thwomps, blocks, Koopa Shells, and coins.

The best new item is the Warp Pipe, which players can use to warp between two spots on your island. Players can purchase all of these items via the Nook Shop terminal in the Resident Services building. Choose the Nook Shopping option, go to the promotions tab, and buy the items you want with Bells. This is every item you can purchase and how much they cost:

  1. 1-UP Mushroom (2000 Bells)
