Pandora has announced that players from all over the world will be able to visit Pandora Island – an immersive space inspired by the Danish jewellery brand’s new Pandora ME collection – which launches on Animal Crossing New Horizons on 30th September 2021.
Players will be able to explore a specially designed island, inspired by Pandora ME – the brand’s vibrant celebration of self-expression and authenticity. The island will feature numerous photoshoot worthy locations for an Animal Crossing avatar, including the iconic Pandora crown logo, an American style diner and homes inspired by the campaign’s celebrity ambassadors. The island was custom designed by Blarla Button, the Island Creator, and Lauran Carter, the Island Producer, under the artistic guidance of Pandora’s Creative Directors – Filippo Ficarelli and Francesco Terzo.
The residential homes of the island reflect both the Pandora ME campaign itself, with avatars of the four ambassadors and the Creative Directors, while also paying tribute to Pandora’s craftsmanship. The Pandora Factory, a house designed to mirror Pandora’s crafting facilities in Chiang Mai, features digital replicas of the facilities’ solar panels, water features and palm trees, while inside players will find crafting benches and materials that Pandora uses in the Pandora Me collection.
Other residential homes mimic the inspiring artists who feature in the Pandora ME campaign:
