The U.S. craze is making its way to our shores.
Nintendo fans across the U.S. have gone bonkers for the Animal Crossing x Build-A-Bear crossover, and now we have confirmation the New Horizons collection will be coming to Australia. Kotaku has confirmed via a Build-A-Bear spokesmen that the collaboration between the two companies will be available to Aussies "soon", though no exact date was given.
The current range features Isabelle Summer and Tom Nook, both of which can be customised to speak or play the Animal Crossing New Horizons theme song. Retail price is expected to be anywhere from $70-$100 AUD. Judging by the immense popularity of the collection overseas, we can see these also selling out very fast here in Australia. Kotaku has also suggested keeping an eye on the build-a-bear website for updates, which we definitely think is a smart move if you're at all interested.
