Last week, Nintendo teased Animal Crossing LEGO sets were on the horizon (get it?). Today, the LEGO Group officially unveiled these new sets. For the first time ever, the Animal Crossing universe will be translated into LEGO bricks, launching with five sets developed in collaboration with Nintendo. LEGO said that these sets are designed for easy assembly and offer extensive customization options. For example, builders can effortlessly swap elements, such as window frames, between buildings. Each set is adaptable, allowing builders to mix and modify components to create their own personalized Animal Crossing world — much like the game.
“To us, Animal Crossing is all about creativity and roleplay, so bringing that to life in physical form using LEGO bricks and creating new minifigures has been fun for the team” said Simon Kent, Creative Lead, Design Director at the LEGO Group. “One of the challenges was to make sure that customization of the sets was simple so builders could experience the freedom they have in the game. Additionally, creating the minifigures to make sure they were accurately representing the characters in the video games was very important for us. We look forward to giving kids the opportunity to play with their favourite characters from Animal Crossing!”
These initial sets target builders who are six years old and above. Here are the first sets:
