We want to wear fluffy Nook pyjamas. We want to have a big Tommy/Timmy pillow to squeeze when times are hard. But, alas, we will not get the chance, for loungewear brand Gelato Pique is only releasing their new Animal Crossing: New Horizons collab in Japan.
The collection was first released last year, with fuzzy hoodies, cute blankets, and bags based on the hit pandemic video game.
The latest additions to the collection are these pyjama sets, a cushion, and slippers modelled after everyone's favourite Tanooki shopkeeper children, all of which are available only until Valentine's Day.
Do you think you'll ever be okay again after finding out that these slippers exist? Tell us about your cold feet in the comments.
Show Tommy some love by putting his slipper on first...
Um witch one is tommy? and witch one is T- oh np.
This... doesn't look 2 bad...
Give. GIVE. I wear slippers all day.
I can't help noticing the amount of clothes and make up articles has gone up considerably recently...
Reckon we are going to see actual Animal Crossing department stores at this rate. Think of all the furniture lines!
@GrailUK somebody comes to your house every 10 days or so with a mystery item.....hope it fits!
Those slippers are everything
Obviously Japan only.
In Japan they sell them and make money.
In the US they revel them, everyone complains that they should have made <insert name here> instead, and the eyes are a bit off, and Nintendo should spend more time making there games good and not making junk products, and they cost too much, and Animal Crossing sucks anyway, worst company ever for focusing on casual games.
And it's not like I even wanted them, but why can't Nintendo make enough stock!?!?
And the not sarcastic reason, which still sucks, is that Japan isn't in a trade war with China and Nintendo owns local factories (as well as a strong partnership with dozens of manufactures) so they are dirt cheap to make. There is no where to make these in the US, and the tariffs would be so high that they would be cost prohibitive.
I see we get articles for every new piece of Nintendo merch lol The commission must be worth it.
@Thwomp_Stomper Has nothing to do with commissions I guess, and more with the news drought since month regarding the Switch.
@Yanina Agreed. Given that many of the items are ‘Japan only’ and therefore unaccessible to the vast majority of the readership, why would any company in their right mind be handing out commissions?
If you want to increase sales of a given market, a sensible starting point would be to... actually sell to that market.
Is that wrong for me to play casual games especially ACNH ? 🤨
Casual games are very important business.
Not everyone want to play games like BOTW or Monster Hunter or something AAA.
