Last month’s Mario crossover gave us a chance to see our favorite characters from the franchise in new Horizons. Following that, this month we have a Sanrio crossover. According to Nintendo’s blog post,

“Starting March 26, the Animal Crossing Sanrio Collaboration Pack will be available for purchase at Target stores across the U.S. at a suggested retail price of $5.99.
