There’s something special that players get as part of the Mario update in Animal Crossing New Horizons and that’s Super Mario items. Yes, players can unlock Mario items in ACNH which also includes the teleportation warp pipes. Note that you have to update your game to version 1.8.0a – if you don’t have this exact version then you won’t be able to snag the Mario items.
How to Unlock Mario Items in ACNH (Animal Crossing New Horizons)
Players have to follow certain steps to get the Mario furniture as well as clothes in ACNH. If you don’t want to change your Switch’s settings, you simply have to wait until March 1st in your region to be able to get these items. But if you want them fast wherever you are, you can simply change your time zone to a region where it’s already March 1st. New Zealand is the one we will go for to get access to the Mario items early.
Steps to get Mario Items
- Make sure that you have updated your game to Ver. 1.8.0a.
- Change your Switch’s time zone to Auckland.
- Head to System Settings in the Home menu.

- Do a fresh launch of the game and see if you have the right version. You will be able to see it on your game’s main screen.
