Animal Crossing has always been a series that isn't afraid to break the fourth wall and incorporate elements from other Nintendo properties. Being a life simulation, this only makes sense. The people most likely to have some sort of decoration, clothing, or other memorabilia for Nintendo franchises are also the ones most likely to be invested in games like Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Even if that's not a player's real-life style, the fantasy of decorating and designing an entire island in ways you never would, or could, is incredibly appealing.



Animal Crossing: New Horizons has tons of these crossover items, with more added over the various updates to the game. One such update gave players access to a giant chunk of Mario-themed items to purchase and place as they wish. That being said, the method for getting them can be a little strange. These items were added over a year ago, so the knowledge may be lost, and the items themselves buried a bit to make finding them a bit tougher too. If you want to get your hands on all the Mario clothing, decorations, and more in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, here's a full guide.

How to get Super Mario items in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

As of March 2021, Super Mario items were rolled out into Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Like all items in the game, you'll need to pay some of your hard-earned Bells to get your hands on the collection.

Step 2: Go to the Nook Stop Terminal in the Resident Services Center and access Nook Shopping.

Step 3: Alternatively, you can access this menu via the Nook Shopping app on your NookPhone.

Step 4: Tab over to the Promotion section.

Super Mario RPG Wedding Hall guide: Where to find Peach’s crown and other accessories
Princess Peach with a parasol in Super Mario RPG.

Mario and friends have chased down Peach to Marrymore late into Super Mario RPG. It isn't Bowser who has her in his clutches this time, but Booster, who intends to marry the princess against her will. After busting into the church to call things off, Peach's crown and other accessories will be scattered across the chapel. You will need to find every last missing item before the ceremony begins, but they aren't all in plain sight. Here is where to find Peach's crown and all her other accessories in Super Mario RPG.
Where to find all of Peach's accessories

Aside from her crown, you will need to find her shoes, ring, and brooch as well.
Peach's crown location
The crown is the easiest to find since it will be in sight right away. After the collision, the crown ends up resting atop Booster's head standing at the altar. All you need to do is jump on top of him to get it back.
Shoes, ring, and brooch locations
The other three items weren't dropped on the floor, but havebeen collected by Booster's Sniffits. These quick little dudes will be running in patterns around the church and pews, so you need to intercept and speak to each of them. Just talking to them will do the trick -- you don't have to engage in a fight -- so just mash the talk button as you approach.

Where to get a snack for the Frog Sage in Super Mario RPG
Super Mario RPG shop

Super Mario RPG has a mostly straightforward and easy to follow main story, so figuring out what to do next is usually a quick and simple affair. However, soon after finishing up a segment of your adventure in Marrymore, Mallow will mention that you should go back and speak with his grandfather, Frog Sage, who you can find at Tadpole Pond. However, upon arriving, you may find that you can't progress the story any further because the Frog Sage is waiting for a snack. Luckily, rounding up a tasty bite for him won't take you very long, and we'll tell you how to do so below.
Where to get a snack for the Frog Sage
The first step in obtaining a snack for the Frog Sage is to open your map and fast-travel back to the Mushroom Kingdom. Upon your arrival, head over to the item shop, which can be identified by the spinning mushroom on the side of the building.

Inside, speak to the shopkeeper and use the Rare Frog Coin (which you obtained from Croco earlier in the game) to purchase a Cricket Pie. Since this tasty snack is precisely what the Frog Sage had sent Mallow to retrieve back when you first met the little fluffball, you can now take it back to the wise frog and fulfill his grandson's initial quest. In return for bringing him his food, the Frog Sage will gift you the Froggy Stick weapon for Mallow and move the main story forward with a bit of dialogue.

How to get to Grate Guy’s Casino in Super Mario RPG
Casino entrance in Super Mario RPG

Like many role-playing games, Super Mario RPG features plenty of fun secrets to find as you journey through its world. One of these secrets is the Grate Guy's Casino, which will require you to do some jumping in a very specific place to unlock an incredibly well-hidden passage. If you're looking to play the slots or kick back with some Blackjack, we'll tell you how to find your way to this super secret spot.
How to get to Grate Guy's Casino
There are two steps required to reach the Grate Guy Casino.
Get the Bright Card
The first step to reaching Grate Guy's Casino is obtaining the Bright Card, as you'll be unable to enter without it. To find this item, make your way to Booster's Tower. As you ascend the tower, you'll eventually come across a juggling character named Knife Guy, who will challenge you to a game that requires you to pick which hand he's holding a yellow ball in after he finishes juggling. You'll need to win twelve times in a row before he'll eventually reward you with the Bright Card. It's fairly easy to figure out which hand the yellow ball has landed by simply watching which direction it was moving when the juggling stops, so it shouldn't pose too much of an issue.
Find the secret entrance
With the Bright Card in hand, your goal is now to find Grate Guy's Casino. To do so, you'll need to head over to Bean Valley and walk to the center of this area to find a collection of pipes that you can go down to reach various underground sections. Go down the northernmost pipe and engage the Chain Chomp here in battle. Afterward, you'll need to jump three times in the corner where the Chain Chomp was before you defeated it, which will reveal an extraordinarily well-hidden block that you can jump to that will allow you to reach the top of the wall. Head through the exit here.

When you emerge on the other side, go into the house and approach the two doormen. They won't let you pass without the Bright Card, but since you've found it already, you'll be free to pass through into the casino. Inside, you'll find three games you can play: Slots, Blackjack, and a guessing game that requires you to look in the opposite direction that the person points. Compete in any of these as many times as you'd like and have fun!
