Nintendo Has Updated Its Official Island In Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Animal CrossingNintendo

Think back to last year when the Dream Suite arrived in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and you might remember how Nintendo actually released the Dream Address code for its own official island in the game.

Now, in an update on Twitter – it’s announced the same island has had a facelift, with what appears to be some items from the Sanrio collection. The code you’ll need to make the return trip is: DA-6382-1459-4417

Nintendo’s European Twitter account has also shared some images (as can be seen above) of the island, if you don’t perhaps feel like visiting right away. Will you be heading back? Do you make use of the Dream Suite feature very often? Leave a comment down below.

Poll: Are You Still Playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons A Year Later?

This week marks a year since Animal Crossing: New Horizons was released on the Nintendo Switch. Due to the state of the world in 2020, it became a bit of a cultural phenomenon – keeping many sane during lockdowns around the globe. There were even celebrities declaring their love for the game.

Nintendo’s regularly updated New Horizons with a bunch of major content patches, and even this month it’s released some items, like cake, to celebrate the first anniversary. We’ve also got the return of Bunny Day, gulp. No – to be fair, it’s been patched now, so everything should be fine.

Moving along, all of this has got us wondering how many of you are still playing New Horizons a year after its release? Are there people within the Nintendo Life community who haven’t played this game yet? Vote in our poll and leave a comment down below about your own playing habits when it comes to this game.

Whether it seems like yesterday or not is a matter of perspective, but Animal Crossing: New Horizons launched one year ago today.

And what a year it’s been! Nintendo’s life sim ended up becoming a significant coping mechanism for many people throughout 2020; a social outlet and positive focal point for millions of players that the makers couldn’t possibly have foreseen during development.

Now that we’ve fully cycled through all of the game’s four seasons and a full calendar year, we recently asked you to use the tag #ACNHYear1 and share images with us via Twitter — photos that best sum up your experience with the game over the past 365 days. A huge thank you to everyone who responded! You’ll find below a small selection of our favourites, plus an extra couple from Nintendo Life staff.

So let’s dive in and look at just some of our very favourite memories after the first full year of Animal Crossing: New Horizons…

Animal Crossing New Horizons Super Mario items list and release date for Nintendo Switch
Animal Crossing fans can unlock brand new Super Mario items within New Horizons on Nintendo Switch.

The next batch of Animal Crossing New Horizons items launched as part of update 1.8.0. The update introduced countless Super Mario themed goodies to celebrate the plumber’s 35-year anniversary.

Unfortunately, however, the items weren’t available to purchase on the same day as the update.

Instead, the Super Mario 35th Anniversary items will be available to purchase from Tom Nook on March 1.

The release date was confirmed by Nintendo in a recent tweet, alongside confirmation of a special free gift for fans.

“The Animal Crossing: New Horizons free update is available now, bringing Super Mario Bros. themed furniture and fashion items for purchase on 3/1, as well as new seasonal items!

“Download the update and receive a free mushroom mural!”

The Mario-themed items – which you can see below – have some interesting effects on gameplay. The warp pipe, for example, lets you quickly move between parts of the island.
