The LEGO Group has revealed five new LEGO Animal Crossing sets, which have been created in partnership with Nintendo.

These sets – Bunnie’s Outdoor Activities, Isabelle’s House Visit, Julian’s Birthday Party, Kapp’n’s Island Boat Tour and Nook’s Cranny & Rosie’s House – have been developed “to fit together easily and offer a high level of customisation,” letting you swap elements between buildings. The example given is the window frames, which can be switched with one simple click.

    “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,” explains The LEGO Group creative lead and design director Simon Kent.

    “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!”

    Nintendo game producer Aya Kyogoku adds: “The Animal Crossing video game series is about creating a world where you freely build the life you want, and now with LEGO bricks, you can build that world with your own hands in the real world too.

    “Putting the sets together is only the beginning. Kids can use the furniture, plants, and more, included with each set, to customize them or even combine multiple sets to create their own village. There are so many different ways kids will be able to express their creativity based on what they like, which can evolve as they grow. We hope that the world of Animal Crossing and its characters, now also in the form of LEGO bricks, can bring smiles to people’s faces by being a part of their day-to-day lives.”

    The new LEGO Animal Crossing sets will be released at retail worldwide on 1 March 2024.
