Animal Crossing Meets Gelato Pique

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has to rank as one of the most chilled-out video games ever – so it makes sense to align the series with the kind of clothing you wear when you're lazing about the house, busy doing nothin'.

With that in mind, Gelato Pique has just revealed that it is producing a range of loungewear which launches on January 13th, 2021, with pre-orders opening on November 18th, 2020. The catch? The range is only confirmed for Japan so far.

The selection of items includes a crushed jacquard pullover, fruit pattern pullover, jacquard hoodie and even some fetching Tom Nook slippers. While the range is mainly focused on online sales, select items will also be available at Gelato Pique stores and Nintendo TOKYO, and a promotional book – Animal Crossing: New Horizons meets Gelato Pique Special Book – will be sold at 7-Eleven stores and bookshops.

Arriving on December 22nd, the 16-page book (which also comes with a tote bag and pouch) will show off the range, as modelled by actress Mayu Matsuoka.
