Nintendo’s first big game in 2020 is days away.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the series’ first entry on Nintendo Switch, launches later this week. New Horizons is possibly the biggest Animal Crossing yet, expanding on and upgrading various series staples.
The game is built around the new concept of populating a deserted island, rather than moving into an existing town. This is meant to make it more accessible to new players while offering enough depth for longtime fans to dig their teeth into.
Nintendo is promising a number of free updates and special events that kick off at launch.
