Princess Peach from the Super Mario Bros. series may be one of the most iconic video game characters of all time, and players can now bring her to their island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons with the Princess Peach Clothing set. Players have likely already had the opportunity to dress their Animal Crossing characters as Princess Peach before using custom clothing and patterns, but now, Nintendo has created a promotional crossover to celebrate the Super Mario Bros. 35th anniversary. These official clothing items, along with tons of new Mario-themed furniture items and decorations, will become available starting March 1, provided players have downloaded Animal Crossing Update Version 1.8 that released on February 25.
There are four new Clothing sets for players to purchase and try on, based on four iconic characters: Mario, Luigi, Wario, and Princess Peach. The Princess Peach Clothing set is a little different from the other three. There only appear to be three pieces in the set instead of four, and these pieces will cost players more bells than the others. Unlike other clothing items, players can’t necessarily find these items in the clothing store and instead will need to head to Resident Services. Here’s how to get the Princess Peach Clothing set in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
To get the items in the Princess Peach Clothing set in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, players will need to make sure they have a stable Internet connection and download Free Update 1.8. They will receive a free Super Mario Wallpaper item for doing so. Then, they can launch the game and head to the Nook Stop kiosk in Resident Services or use the Nook Shopping app on their NookPhone.
While most clothing items are usually found at the Able Sisters’ shop, the Super Mario costumes are considered promotional items. All the new Super Mario Bros. Crossover items will appear under the Promotions tab in Nook Shopping. The Princess Peach Clothing set in Animal Crossing: New Horizons can be purchased as four individual pieces:
The dress will only be available in the signature pink style with the blue gem in the center of the chest area. Unlike the Mario, Luigi, and Wario sets, the Princess Peach set does not include any sort of augmentations that change a player character’s facial features.
The items from the Super Mario Crossover still count toward the player’s 5-order-per-day limit, so players will not be able to purchase everything right away. They can, however, get the whole Princess Peach Clothing set at the same time as long as they have enough bells, along with a new decoration of choice. Based on the update trailer that was released during Nintendo Direct, players can load the costume into a wand, just like any other outfit. It will appear over the player’s other clothes and can quickly be toggled on and off as needed.
The Super Mario Bros. Crossover items for Animal Crossing: New Horizons should be available until December 31, 2021, giving players plenty of time to collect all the furniture items and Clothing sets they want. Most of the furniture is decorative, but each piece comes with a unique animation effect that will trigger if a player touches the object. There have been 18 items confirmed so far, including various Blocks, power-ups, and flooring and wallpaper options. Fans appear to be most excited for the introduction of Warp Pipes, which can be placed anywhere on the island to create a fast-travel system between regions.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available for Nintendo Switch.
