animal crossing: new horizons pre-order

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is just a month away. When the series finally makes its long-awaited return, we’ll be thrust into a brand new iteration of the addictive life-sim for the first time since Animal Crossing: New Leaf on the 3DS, and we’ll be enjoying a full-fledged console game in the series for the first time since Animal Crossing: City Folk all the way back on the Wii. What are you most excited to do in Animal Crossing: New Horizons when it launches on Switch?

I’m personally very, very ready to finally just jump back in to the series for the first time since Animal Crossing on GameCube.  It’s a bit of a cop-out answer, but I’m looking forward to the whole life-sim experience. To be more specific, though, the in-depth customization features are driving me wild. Considering that it’s been close to fifteen years since I last dove into an Animal Crossing game, I am sure that all of the evolutions to the formula and the new level of creativity endorsed by the game will blow me away.

What about you? Are you looking forward to the long grind of collecting enough Bells to pay off Tom Nook? Getting to know a quirky cast of villagers? Catching all kinds of bugs? Or are you most enticed by some of the new features detailed in today’s Animal Crossing Direct? Let us know in the comments!
