Game slated to ship on March 20, 2020
Nintendo revealed a new trailer for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the latest entry in the Animal Crossing game franchise, during its Nintendo Direct stream on Wednesday. The video highlights the game's mechanics.
The game is the first in the series for the Nintendo Switch. The game was originally slated to ship this year, but was delayed to March 20, 2020.
The most recent main Animal Crossing game, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, shipped for the Nintendo 3DS in Japan in 2012 and in North America in 2013. Nintendo has since released the Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival board game-style Wii U game and the Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer 3DS game. The Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp app game launched in November 2017.
