Animal Crossing: New Horizons features outlined

Details about upcoming island life simulation game

Posted on

Nintendo has announced new details about Animal Crossing: New Horizons, launching exclusively for the Nintendo Switch family of systems on March 20.

On the island, life is as peaceful and relaxing as it gets. Since the island is deserted, you can create your new life from the very beginning. Time flows as naturally as in the real world, including seasons and day and night cycles that mirror real time.

By collecting specific materials around the island, you can craft a wide variety of things, including tools and furniture. DIY workshops teach you how to enrich your life by crafting DIY recipes. For players looking for more concrete goals, and to help offer guidance and inspiration on the island, you can take advantage of the Nook Mileage program. As you fulfill certain challenges and experiences, you will earn miles to pay off the cost of the getaway package or, eventually, to exchange for in-game rewards.

In Party Play, you can call up to three other players to explore the island at the same time. Whoever calls the others will be the Leader, making the others the Followers.

With NookLink, which is part of the Nintendo Switch Online app, you can scan a Custom Design QR Code pattern from previous games Animal Crossing: New Leaf or Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer with your real-life smartphone and then download them to Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Free updates are promised after the game launches, with seasonal events continually added throughout the year. The first free update will be on launch day, March 20. By installing this update, you can celebrate Bunny Day with a special event in April.

Complete details can be found on the announcement page.
