Animal Crossing Super Mario items: How to use warp pipes in New Horizons explained

Turn your island into the Mushroom Kingdom.

A range of Super Mario themed items have been released into Animal Crossing: New Horizons to celebrate the series 35th anniversary.

These items include a range of Super Mario themed furniture, such as Super Mushrooms and Thwomps, and clothing items inspired by Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Wario.

Best of all, however, are the warp pipes, which will allow you to fast travel between two different locations on your island. With these pipes in place, you can quickly zip between one corner of your island and another!

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

A range of Super Mario items will be available in New Horizons from Monday, 1st March.

If you want to purchase any of these items, then you need visit the Nook Stop in Residential Services to access Nook Shopping or use the Nook Shopping app on your Nook Phone. This app will only unlock after you've purchased 100 items via the Nook Stop, so it may take you some time to unlock.

Once you're within the app, select 'Special Goods' and scroll to the 'Promotional' section. Here you'll find the Super Mario items, along with the Pocket Camp items if you've unlocked them.

The Super Mario items are tied to the Nook Shopping rules of five items per day and you'll have to wait a day for them to arrive in the mail. This means that you may have to wait a while if you're planning on building a Mario themed area on your island, though you can always time travel your troubles away.

How to use warp pipes in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

The warp pipes are by far the more interesting Super Mario item released into New Horizons, because they allow you to create a fast travel spot from one location to another.

You need to place at least two pipes around your island.

If you want to utilise the fast travel capabilities of the pipe, then you'll first need to purchase two Pipes, at 5,000 Bells each, from Nook Shopping either at the Nook Stop in Residential Services or from the app on your phone.

Remember - you'll have to wait a day for these items to arrive and you can only order five items from Nook Shopping at a time, so make sure you plan your purchases carefully.

Once you've received your pipes, place both of them in different locations across your island.

If you enjoy visiting other player's islands, then you could place one outside your house and the other by the airport, so you don't have to waste time sprinting across your island. If, however, you're more Bell focused, you could place a Pipe by Nook's Cranny and the other near your fruit orchard or another money making spot, allowing you to quickly visit the shop whenever you want.

Putting one near your Museum is a good idea.

The important thing to remember is that you must place two pipes on your island or else you won't be going anywhere.

You can have more than two pipes on your island, but the order in which you travel between them will be random. This means that it may take a couple of tries to reach your desired location and you may start wondering if walking there would have been quicker! Maybe you get lost in the plumbing Tom Nook manages to install overnight...
