Check out the newly released trailer by visiting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SDyY_N0eloQ.

Order Super Mario Bros. themed furniture and fashion items
As introduced in the trailer, Super Mario Bros. themed furniture, fashion items, and more will be available for order in the game starting March 1.
Out of all the items, we’d like to highlight the Warp Pipe. You can place Warp Pipes on your island and enter one, then warp to another!
To warp, place at least two Warp Pipes on your island to travel between locations. If you place more than two Warp Pipes, the warp location will be chosen at random. The Warp Pipe needs enough landing space around it to be able to work properly. Players can even warp to Warp Pipes placed inside their home! Why not decorate your island like the Mushroom Kingdom?
New seasonal items available:
By installing the Feb. 25 free update, players will also be able to order in-game items inspired by various seasonal events and customs.
For the Hinamatsuri festival on March 3, hinaningyo (doll) and blossom lantern will be available for order between Feb. 25 and March 3. There will be one item from the series available each day, and the selection changes daily.
Did you know that in many countries March 14 is celebrated as Pi Day? Pi, of course, refers to the mathematical constant “Pi,” and Pi Day is celebrated on March 14 (3/14) because Pi begins with 3.14. Between March 1 and March 14, players will be able to order the in-game ∏ day item.
March 17 is Shamrock Day! In honor of these little green three-leaved plants, the following items will be available for order between March 10 and March 17: shamrock soda, shamrock doorplate, and shamrock rug. There will be one item from the series available each day, and the selection changes daily.
Plus, you can find Shamrock Day themed fashion items at the Able Sisters from March 10 through March 17. You can match your Shamrock themed fashion items with your other Shamrock themed items!
Players who download the Feb. 25 update will receive the mushroom mural in their in-game mailbox as a thank-you gift. Super Mario Bros. themed items won’t be available for order until March 1, but the mushroom mural might help inspire your imagination…you can pretend to be Mario while you wait!
