Animal Crossing: New Horizons is set to get an unexpected collaboration with sportswear manufacturer Puma.

Through its social accounts, the German brand revealed an unexpected teaser, marking a new alliance between Nintendo with another clothing manufacturer, as with Levi's and their Super Mario and Pokémon collections.

Details of this new collection have already been leaked through sites like Sneaker Freaker, showing the first look at a special edition Wild Rider, one of three shoes that will be part of a unique footwear line inspired by the Nintendo Switch title.

As you can see below, the shoes share the aesthetic of pastel colours from the game, featuring light blue and green tones. These will also come with subtle designs from some of the Animal Crossing villagers, coming in two different colour patterns.
