LEGO has once again teamed up with Nintendo to launch a series of Animal Crossing sets. The collection will launch with five sets and in total will cost you $180. LEGO says that the entire collection will arrive on 1 March 2024 and include various items and contraptions which will, in turn, let players make their very own Animal Crossing island.
Instead of including larger LEGO Bricks and items to assemble, the Animal Crossing collection seems to favour smaller, more intricate objects which adds to the game’s appeal. Most of the items are also exterior objects such as trees, flowers, fish and other decorations.
Even the buildings consist of only a detailed storefront with a small interior section. There’s Tom Nook’s “Nook’s Cranny” shop, the Villager’s Home, Isabelle’s House and various outer island areas. Each set will also include a range of Minifigs to collect. We don’t know if you’ll be able to purchase these separately.
The most expensive is the 535-piece which costs $75. But there are others if you’re looking at cheaper options.
The entire collection includes:
- Julian’s Birthday Party, where builders can celebrate with Julian, share cupcakes, and open presents.
- Bunnie’s Outdoor Activities allows enthusiasts of the great outdoors to roleplay setting up a tent, roasting marshmallows or using the vaulting pole to jump across the water, and grab the shovel or other recognizable tools from the video game series.
- Kapp’n’s Island Boat Tour gives fans the opportunity to board the boat and explore another island with Kapp’n and Marshal, go on an adventure to search for coconuts and bamboo, discover wildlife, hermit crabs, and fish or simply hang out and enjoy the fire.
- Isabelle’s House Visit allows builders to get creative and help Isabelle and Fauna customize Fauna’s house and enjoy activities like opening the balloon present, crafting tools, or picking fruits and flowers.
- Nook’s Cranny & Rosie’s House gives builders two locations where they can roleplay stocking up Nook’s Cranny shop or go to Rosie’s house for freshly baked cookies.
