The most exciting item that players can purchase is something called a “warp pipe” that allows them to travel from one section of their island to another. While details are sketchy, Nintendo also hinted that there will be other interesting uses for them as well.
Players have a lot to look forward to in the coming months with other themed events. Many are hoping that a Legend of Zelda theme will drop into the game in celebration of its 35th anniversary but, so far, Nintendo is mum on the issue.
