Animal Crossing: New Horizons Direct 2.20.2020

According to Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing:

“The Animal Crossing games offer players a unique and relaxing escape from the stresses of everyday life, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons builds on that by letting players build their own island utopia from scratch. When Nintendo Switch owners pack their virtual bags and move into their new island home, they will experience more ways to customize their Animal Crossing life than ever before. Just like Nintendo Switch itself, the game lets you play the way you want to play.”

The game will come out for the Nintendo Switch on March 20, 2020.
