Brace yourselves Nintendo Switch fans: Lego Animal Crossing is officially on the way
Lego and Animal Crossing have announced a collaboration, sparking excitement for more video game Lego crossovers and a potential release in March 2024.
Lego and Animal Crossing have joined forces in an exciting collaboration, as revealed in a heartwarming trailer released on Twitter by Nintendo Europe. The trailer showcases beloved characters such as Tom Nook, Isabelle, and other adorable animal villagers, all beautifully recreated with Lego's iconic ABS bricks.
This partnership had been previously hinted at in an August leak, which suggested that the Animal Crossing Lego crossover would be available in March 2024. According to the leak, there will be five different products in the Lego sets, with prices ranging from $14.99 to $74.99. However, it is important to note that neither Lego nor Nintendo have officially confirmed this information at the time of writing.
While specific details about the Lego sets have not been disclosed through rumors or leaks, the mere prospect of more video game Lego crossovers is thrilling. The Overwatch Lego crossover was met with great enthusiasm, igniting a desire for more collaborations of this nature. Additionally, the Lego Sonic products released earlier this year were visually stunning and left fans eager to see Nintendo follow in SEGA's footsteps. The Animal Crossing collaboration seems to be fulfilling those hopes.
The timing for an Animal Crossing Lego set couldn't be better. Animal Crossing: New Horizons has not only been a major success in mainstream markets, but it is also widely regarded as one of the best games available on the Nintendo Switch. As a delightful nod to the game, the Lego set trailer even incorporates the soothing soundtrack, adding to the overall appreciation.
We are personally thrilled about this collaboration, but what about you? Are you excited to get your hands on Lego Animal Crossing bricks? If so, we would love to hear your thoughts on what you would like to see from the sets upon their release, as well as your opinions on the trend of Lego video game collaborations. Let us know!
