A stunning new line-up of officially licensed Animal Crossing: New Horizons accessories from HORI have been released in Japan and can now be easily purchased internationally through direct import!
Following up on the ‘poptart’ themed accessories released last year for the launch of New Horizons, this year’s new set of Animal Crossing merchandise is themed to the starry night sky with shooting stars.
As you’d expect with such a theme, both Celeste and Blathers are prominently displayed on all of these new merchandise items, alongside other favorites like Isabelle and Tom Nook! Outside of characters, they feature a pleasant blue-purple color scheme with stars.
The Starry Sky collection of Animal Crossing accessories includes a Mini Controller, Hand Pouch, Hybrid Pouch, Play Stand, and Whole Storage Bag. All items are officially licensed by Nintendo.
As of publication, all five items from the Starry Sky collection are available to order for import with international shipping from Amazon Japan here. (the Mini Controller was previously unavailable, but has returned)
Animal Crossing Starry Sky Hand Pouch
The Animal Crossing Starry Sky Hand Pouch is a great minimal way of carrying your Nintendo Switch or Nintendo Switch Lite with you on the go. This pouch is made of a soft material, rather than being a hard shell.
It has an external pocket allowing you to store an additional small item like earbuds as well. That pocket features an adorable star-shaped zipper too!
Animal Crossing Starry Sky Hybrid Pouch
The Animal Crossing Starry Sky Hybrid Pouch is a more durable carry case for both Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite made with strong material.
Inside, you’ll find storage for up to 10 Nintendo Switch game carts, as well as a net area for other accessories.
Animal Crossing Starry Sky Play Stand
The Animal Crossing Starry Sky Play Stand is a great way to play your Nintendo Switch on a table or other similar position. This stand can be adjusted into 3 different angles and allows for easy charging without bending any cables.
Animal Crossing Starry Sky Whole Storage Bag
The Animal Crossing Starry Sky Whole Storage Bag can be used as the perfect storage solution for your Nintendo Switch and accessories.
With this storage bag, you can easily carry:
- Nintendo Switch or Nintendo Switch Lite Console
- Joy-Coin Grip
- Nintendo Switch Dock
- Joy-Con Straps
- AC Adapter
- HDMI Cable
Animal Crossing Starry Sky Mini Controller
The Animal Crossing Starry Sky Mini Controller is a small wired controller for both Nintendo Switch and PC via USB. Note that it only works when connected through the Nintendo Switch dock and cannot connect directly to the system itself.
If you’re interested in picking up any of these Starry Sky Animal Crossing accessories, we recommend checking Amazon Japan for import options, with Play-Asia as a backup option.
So far, there haven’t been any announcements of this merchandise being released overseas officially and it’s likely to remain that way. With the past ‘poptart’ collection, only one item from the set was sold outside internationally.
