We have known that Animal Crossing was coming to the Nintendo Switch for quite some time, but we knew nothing about the title. During today’s E3 Nintendo Direct, “Nook Inc” announced that Animal Crossing: New Horizons would be launching on March 20, 2020. Technically, this is a delay compared to when the game was originally slated to come out. Animal Crossing on the Switch was originally supposed to be a 2019 game.
The new trailer shows a player being shipped to a deserted island by Nook Industries. The player sets up a tent and begins to build up the island. Slowly, new residents and characters appear in the game. At the end of the trailer, a bunch of human characters appear as well, indicating that Animal Crossing: New Horizons might have a strong multiplayer component.
Not much is known about this Animal Crossing title, but Nintendo promised new details during its Nintendo Treehouse presentation. We will keep you updated on any new information as it becomes available.
