Want a pack of those special new Sanrio (Hello Kitty) amiibo cards for Animal Crossing: New Leaf we covered before, but don’t live in a country where they’re being sold? We have an affordable solution!

GAME, a retailer based in the United Kingdom, has been spotted selling the Animal Crossing: New Leaf + Sanrio amiibo Cards Pack for £4.95, with reasonable international shipping. Previously, only the official Nintendo UK Store was seen selling the packs, which does not ship internationally. Since the cards are being shipped from the UK, they will be in English as well unlike an import from Japan.

We’ve tested a few addresses and international shipping for most countries seems to cost only £4.95, which at current exchange rates makes a pack shipped only $12.41 USD or $16.80 CAD. It’s not painfully slow shipping either — the cards are set to arrive in just 3-6 days after shipment on the release date of November 25th.

UPDATE JULY 2018: Unfortunately, the ship has long sailed for purchasing these Sanrio amiibo cards in new condition from any official retailer as they are no longer produced — your only real option is to hunt them down on eBay at a highly marked up price. Click here to search eBay for the Sanrio Animal Crossing amiibo cards. They are heavily marked up though, we’re warning you!

Another option you may want to consider is what’s called custom or fan made Sanrio amiibo cards. Some sellers on sites like Etsy re-print replicas of the Sanrio amiibo card designs and then add in the special NFC chip which allows the card to be scanned like a real amiibo into Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

These custom-made cards are essentially a working copy with their legality and morality in question, but in the current situation where prices of official cards are outrageous and no longer produced, we think it is worth considering as a last resort. Click here to search Etsy for the Sanrio Animal Crossing amiibo cards.

Remember that the pack includes the full set of six Sanrio amiibo cards, so there’s no random nonsense to deal with. We’ve included photos of some of the cards above, but check out our full article on the series here for more information and photos. And for an even better look, the Nintendo Dream Village has two of the Sanrio villagers in it, check out our video tour here.

Given there has been no official announcement yet from Nintendo of America on a release of these limited edition amiibo cards, we’d recommend this as a good way to grab a pack in the United States or Canada without breaking the bank too much.
