Animal Crossing: New Horizons Gets Switch Release Date and Gameplay Trailer

Back when Super Smash Brothers Ultimate was getting its character reveals, we got a big surprise. Tacked onto the end of Isabelle’s reveal trailer, was something else entirely. The announcement for a new Animal Crossing game. However, we haven’t gotten any information about it…

Until Nintendo’s 2019 E3 presentation. Titled ‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons‘, players will find themselves on a deserted island in charge of development. By exploring the island and hunting down materials on it, you will be able to build your personal campsite. The game does seem to also have some online features where players will set up camp on your island or players will be able to interact with each other and visit their respective towns.

Throughout this development, friends will also be able to join your campsite in some respect. Tom Nook is still going to bill you 49,800 bells for it all. Look at it this way, he does set you up with an interest-free loan. I’d much rather owe Tom Nook money than a major bank.

You can watch the trailer below:

The game has been delayed from its initial announcement of Winter 2019 and instead Animal Crossing: New Horizons will be released on March 20, 2020, for the Nintendo Switch.
