Many regions of the world are still eagerly awaiting news of pre-orders for the Animal Crossing Sanrio Amiibo Cards to go live in their country, with Target in the United States taking their sweet time especially.
We know that there are a lot of fans out there who can get worried about not having an order secured anywhere and risk missing out if stores in your country sell out quickly, especially with a hot item like Sanrio.
That’s why we want to share that French retailer FNAC currently has a pre-order listing for the Animal Crossing Sanrio Collaboration Pack that ships internationally to many countries around the world.
UPDATE: Sadly, the cards have sold out from FNAC just a couple short hours after publishing this article. We’ll be keeping an eye on their return, but unfortunately, our write-up isn’t very useful unless they are restocked…
You’ll need to spend about $8 USD to purchase the pack of all six Animal Crossing Sanrio Amiibo Cards, and then pay the shipping charge ranging from around $5 to $26 USD depending on your location.
Here’s a brief list of shipping costs from FNAC that we calculated for a few countries, converted to US Dollars:
- United States: $15.30
- Canada: $15.30
- United Kingdom: $4.95
- Australia: $26.28
So there’s no doubt that this isn’t the most affordable option out there — you’re always going to pay a premium to import products from elsewhere. Think of importing as an additional option for the dedicated fan who needs to secure an order, or wants multiple packs.
Note that FNAC is a French retailer, and the website is naturally in the French language, so we recommend using a browser like Google Chrome with auto-translation built in for ease of use. We have heard multiple reports of successful orders doing this.
It’s also worth noting that FNAC is advertising a release date of April 2nd right now, so you might not have the Sanrio cards in your hands until sometime in mid-April, depending on shipping time.
Ultimately, we do think that most people should probably wait until pre-orders are made available in their country, but importing from FNAC might be worth consideration if you’re especially concerned about missing out on the Sanrio Collaboration Pack.
Of course, we’ll be continuing to keep our Animal Crossing Sanrio Amiibo Cards pre-order guide up to date with the latest information over here! An import from FNAC is just another potential option we wanted to bring attention towards.
Need a reminder of why you should get the Sanrio Amiibo Cards? A free update is coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons on March 18th introducing new Sanrio villagers and items into the game!
P.S: If you haven’t heard of FNAC before, they are one of the largest retail chains in France founded over 60 years ago with over 14,000 employees — so don’t worry about them not being a legitimate seller of amiibo cards.
