- Players can redeem Leaf Tickets for one new Sanrio-themed fortune cookie at the Fortune Cookie Shop, with each fortune cookie providing players one of 10 different Sanrio items.

There are a variety of fans to collect featuring fan-favorite Sanrio characters, including Cinnamoroll™, Hello Kitty®, Aggretsuko™ and many more!
But that’s not all. Fans can look forward to even more Sanrio character-themed content to collect in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp between March 25 and May 9, including the return of cute rewards from the first Sanrio Characters Collection in-game event in 2019, featuring fan-favorite characters such as Hello Kitty®, My Melody™, Little Twin Stars™, Keroppi™, Cinnamoroll™ and Pompompurin™.
