A new Mario Mission popped up in Animal Crossing. Here's how to complete it.

March 10, 2021

Happy Mar10 day everyone! Today, March 10, is the annual celebration of everyone’s favorite Italian plumber. Last year, Nintendo celebrated Mario’s 35th anniversary through multiple events, game releases, and limited edition merch. Despite the year’s end, Nintendo has decided to keep the party going by offering more limited-edition Mario-themed pins that you can get for free. All you have to do is complete the “Mario Mission” in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Here’s how you can enter for a chance to win:

Mario Mission

To start the mission you need to make sure that your copy of Animal Crossing: New Horizons is completely up to date as you’ll need to be going online for the event. Once all that’s taken care of, go sleep in any bed inside your house. When speaking to Luna, the Dream Suite tapir, ask to enter in an island code. The code you’ll need should be DA-6382-1459-4417. Once entered, you’ll be whisked away to the official Nintendo ACNH island, and then there you have it, you’ve completed the mission.


Redeeming Codes for Pins

The event started yesterday, March 9, and will run until 7:59 p.m. PT on March 24. By visiting the Nintendo island, you should receive the credit within seven days of the event’s end. With the credit, you’ll be able to redeem the collectible 35th Anniverasy Mario Bros. pin set if you’ve completed enough challenges. You’ll be able to see how many challenges you still need to complete by visiting the Nintendo website right here.
