The next Nintendo franchise to get the LEGO treatment is Animal Crossing, Nintendo has confirmed on social media. A short teaser video featuring many iconic characters from Animal Crossing, such as fan-favorites Tom Nook and Isabelle, has been posted. LEGO has yet to reveal the specific sets that will be released or their launch dates. Based on the trailer, it’s likely that the launch will include eight minifigures, as well as trees and flowers from the long-standing series.
Nintendo and LEGO launched their recent collaboration with Super Mario Bros. sets, and have expanded the line to include Donkey Kong among others. In November, LEGO Super Mario is adding the Piranha Plant set to the collection. Nintendo franchises aren’t the only video game franchises getting the LEGO treatment. Several Sonic the Hedgehog sets launched in August, while the PAC-MAN Arcade set is one of our favorites in the realm of video game-themed LEGO sets.
