Nook fans rejoice, as Build-A-Bear is launching an Animal Crossing collection very soon!
“Get ready to create and customize with our new Animal Crossing: New Horizons collection!” says the announcement on the Build-A-Bear website.
The news of the new collection was also announced on the Build-A-Bear social media channels.
“COMING SOON! Our Animal Crossing™: New Horizons collection is full of fun for all ages.” reads a tweet from Build-A-Bear.
Though while I have no doubts that this Animal Crossing collection will be “for all ages”, I have a strong suspicion that most people that buy these cuddly bears will likely be adults.
This is not the first time that Build-A-Bear has collaborated with video game companies, as we’ve already had awesome collections for both Pokemon and Sonic the Hedgehog (though the latter is no longer available).
It makes perfect sense that both Nintendo and Build-A-Bear will collaborate to capitalise on the huge success of Animal Crossing New Horizons on the Nintendo Switch.
Animal Crossing New Horizons launched for the Nintendo Switch last year, and it’s been one of the best-selling video games of the past 12 months.
Animal Crossing New Horizons has proved to be even more popular for gamers in isolation while the current global pandemic still looms.
Fans are also encouraged to sign-up for alerts to know the very moment as to when the Animal Crossing collection goes live online and in-store (if they’re open).
“Signing up for exclusive updates is the best way to get the island news. We’ll send you email announcements when our Animal Crossing™: New Horizons collection is available.”
Sadly we don’t yet know what the collection will look like, but it’s safe to assume cute and cuddly animals are on the way. If I had to guess, Tom Nook and Isabelle are likely to be two in the collection
