The new Switch edition doesn’t feature the upcoming Animal Crossing game in a bundle just yet.
Speaking of that, the Animal Crossing: New Horizons game is the long-awaited new title in the franchise. It’s set for release on March 20, 2020. The game features a vacation theme and is set on a tropical island. Players can create their own island to build a new civilization.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons game summary:
“Players embark on an ultra-exclusive Nook Inc. Deserted Island Getaway Package and enjoy a peaceful existence full of creativity, charm and the freedom to roll up their sleeves and make their new life whatever they want it to be,” reads the official Nintendo press release. “Players can collect resources they can craft into everything from creature comforts to handy tools as they set up a homestead they can decorate freely, both inside and out.”
You’ll be collecting objects and crafting to make your furniture, objects, and housing. Acquiring new recipes for your crafts can be done through other animals, buying directly from the Nook store, or discovering. Nook’s shop will sell you items and also let you sell your wanted bits, plus you can earn a little profit by selling any weeds from the island. After all, it’s supposed to be a vacation paradise, so it needs to be clean!
