Japan’s first official Nintendo store, located inside Shibuya Parco, has become a hotspot for gaming fans hunting for exclusive merchandise that can’t be found elsewhere. Good news for Nintendo fans: you don’t have to visit the Shibuya store to get your hands on some of these original products anymore – they’re now being offered through the My Nintendo online shop.
The Tokyo-exclusive merchandise includes items from Nintendo's hit game, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which was released earlier this year. Just like you’d design and decorate your virtual house in the game, you can now add a touch of Animal Crossing into your real house, too. The collection includes Animal Crossing-themed kitchen gear, pajamas, slippers, tote bags, bento boxes tumblers, and more. There are even Animal Crossing skincare products such as lip and hand cream.
This Animal Crossing collection is just the first lineup of Nintendo merchandise to be released through the online store, meaning there’s still a lot more to come – so be sure to check back frequently. Unfortunately, shipping is only available within Japan, but if you know someone here who can help you out, this is the perfect time to stock up on some original merch that will make you the envy of all your gaming friends.
