Animal Crossing New Horizons 1.9.0 update

Animal Crossing New Horizons players can now download update 1.9.0.

Update 1.9.0 marks the one year anniversary of Animal Crossing New Horizons, and it comes with a cake to celebrate the occasion.

While there hasn’t been much if anything to celebrate over the past year in reality, there is much to celebrate in ACNH thanks to how it saved many of us from going crazy.

Pokémon Legends Arceus: A familiar region. A new story.

The update comes with a cake cherry-topped with a number 1, and there’s also the arrival of Custom Design Pro Editor+ which allows players to place custom designs on existing items.

In addition to all of the above, there’s also fresh accessories such as a Whoopee Cushion in time for April Fool’s Day which will begin in the land of ACNH on March 26th until April 1st.

While a Whoopee Cushion and anniversary cake is no doubt scrumptious, below you’ll discover how to get Sanrio villagers thanks to the update.

How to get Sanrio Amiibo items and villagers in ACNH

You can get items and villagers from Sanrio Amiibo cards in Animal Crossing New Horizons.

Sanrio Amiibo cards are available to get from Target in the United States for $5.99 starting on March 26th, and you need these cards to get the items and villagers for your Animal Crossing New Horizons island.

The villagers you can get are as follows:

  • Rilla – Gorilla
  • Marty – Cub
  • Etoile – Sheep
  • Chai – Elephant
  • Chelsea – Deer
  • Toby – Rabbit

You can also get items to decorate their homes.

Provided you have obtained the Sanrio cards, you need to visit the Nook Shop in Residential Services and select the Invite Amiibo Camper option.

This will allow you to scan the card so you can invite the villager and get items found underneath Special Goods of Nook Shopping.

Animal Crossing World has published a thorough guide to the items in the game.
