Nintendo Direct Smashes E3 2019 with Animal Crossing News!

Finally! We have news about Animal Crossing coming to Nintendo Switch – if you are anything like us; then you would have been sat at the edge of your seat, screaming as Nintendo Direct E3 2019 came on your screen for news, any news about Animal Crossing and we were not disappointed!

Animal Crossing: New Horizons

It may be delayed, but it is coming. That’s what we are focusing on. The title was originally planned to launch in 2019, but now, the release is going to be on March 20th, 2020. You may have noticed it is quite a delay, however, we don’t mind. We would much rather wait for the game to be developed properly than rushed out.

What’s the story behind Animal Crossing: New Horizons?

Well, your character will be ferried (via the Nook, Inc. Charter) to a desert Island, where you will need to set up a tent and start growing your very own town! Don’t worry though, the game doesn’t divert too heavy from the previous activities available in the previous Animal Crossing Games, such as; Crafting Items, Shaking Trees, Fishing and more.
