Animal Crossing: New Horizons marks the debut of the Animal Crossing franchise on the Nintendo Switch.

This game changes up the franchise's formula a bit. This time, you're plopped down onto a tropical island with pretty much nothing. You'll have to gather resources to craft tools and furniture if you want to live the good life!

 
 

Several classic characters like Tom Nook make their return along with some fresh new faces making their debut!

You won't have to play it alone, either — New Horizons will feature 4-player local multiplayer and 8-player online multiplayer!

Beloved franchise Animal Crossing gets ready for its Nintendo Switch debut!

If the hustle and bustle of modern life’s got you down, Tom Nook has a new business venture up his sleeve that he knows you’ll adore: the Nook Inc. Deserted Island Getaway Package! Sure, you’ve crossed paths with colorful characters near and far. Had a grand time as one of the city folk. May’ve even turned over a new leaf and dedicated yourself to public service! But deep down, isn’t there a part of you that longs for…freedom? Then perhaps a long walk on the beach of a deserted island, where a rich wealth of untouched nature awaits, is just what the doctor ordered!

Peaceful creativity and charm await as you roll up your sleeves and make your new life whatever you want it to be. Collect resources and craft everything from creature comforts to handy tools. Embrace your green thumb as you interact with flowers and trees in new ways. Set up a homestead where the rules of what goes indoors and out no longer apply. Make friends with new arrivals, enjoy the seasons, pole-vault across rivers as you explore, and more!
