Lego joins forces with Nintendo: Lego Animal Crossing
Previously Nintendo joined hands with Lego to launch the Lego Super Mario set in 2020. The set included an interactive Mario figurine and Lego for grasslands, Bowser Castle, and deserts. The goal was for players to recreate Mario levels using the set contents. However, many Mario fans were disappointed by the set as Mario was just a mini collectible and not a playable figurine. The Animal Crossing Legos are designed to be playable. The internet has been quite excited to collect the new Animal Crossing Lego set after launch.
Lego Animal Crossing release date
The Lego Animal Crossing set is expected to release around March 2024. Get your bank accounts ready and prepare your shopping list. There is speculation online that all Animal Crossing characters won’t be included in the same set. You may need to buy all available sets to complete your Animal Crossing Lego collection.
If Lego Leakers are to be believed, there will be five sets in the initial release. The eight characters revealed in the teaser will be divided into separate sets. Nothing official has been confirmed yet about the distribution of the characters among the sets. So that’s something to look forward to while waiting for the official launch.
