Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp Mario Crossover Begins Tonight

Make your camp look like something out of the Mushroom Kingdom starting tonight!

Saturday is March 10, which means it's Mar10 Day! Nintendo has a couple of plans for the day, already tinkering with Google Maps for a special one-time only event. But there's another event that's taking place and it involves one that was teased earlier this week.

Remember that crossover tease for Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp? That has turned out to be a special batch of Mushroom Kingdom items set to hit the mobile game this weekend. Players will be able to craft items from the Mario universe, including pipes, question blocks, power-ups, and special outfits. This special event begins Friday night at 10PM PT and will only last for a limited time.

Other Mar10 Day plans are detailed on the Nintendo website. This includes a special half-off promotion for Super Mario Run and discounts on Wii U and 3DS Virtual Console games featuring the portly plumber. (And remember, he is still a plumber.)

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
