Animal Crossing Furuta Choco Eggs
To celebrate the release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the confectionary company Furuta released their second round of Animal Crossing mini-figures hidden in delicious chocolate eggs. There are 20 townsfolk in total to collect, with two secret variations amongst plenty of fan-favorite villagers!
Animal Crossing Ichiban Kuji
Animal Crossing has collaborated twice with Ichiban Kuji in the past, with its third collection with the otaku lottery due to hit convenience stores around Japan on May 16, 2020. Previous Animal Crossing Ichiban Kuji offerings have included a variety of adorable homeware and lifestyle accessories so you can enjoy some AC magic not only on your screen but in your home!
Animal Crossing Nintendo Switch, Dock and Joy-Cons
Complete with a Tom Nook-themed dock and seafoam green and blue Joy-Cons, AC fans went wild when Nintendo released the first look at the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Nintendo Switch. For those who already own a Switch, you may be disappointed to learn that only the official Japanese Nintendo Store is selling the Animal Crossing-themed Switch, Dock, and Joy-Cons separately. At the time of writing, My Nintendo Store Japan has sold out of this collection. But there may be a chance in the future for a re-release, so keep your eyes peeled!
Note: Due to restrictions on the shipment of batteries, FROM JAPAN cannot ship Nintendo Switch consoles in a single parcel. Please be advised Nintendo Switch consoles need to be opened and split into two separate parcels in order to comply with regulations. A set of two JoyCons can be shipped in a single parcel.
