Animal Crossing: New Horizons gets special edition Nintendo Switch console, joycons, & dock!

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is easily the most anticipated Nintendo Switch game of 2020 (Sorry Zelda!).

Fans have been waiting since 2013 for a full Animal Crossing release. The last one was New Leaf on the 3DS. It was one of the highest-rated games, by both players and critics, of the year.

Fortunately, fans don't have to wait too much longer for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, as it arrives on the Switch on 20 March 2020.

A new life on a deserted island awaits, and fans can celebrate the release in style.

Keep reading to find out how.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Along with the game on 20 March, a limited Nintendo Switch bundle will be available in stores on the same day.

What does that get you? Well the game, obviously, but also something truly outstanding.

A special edition Animal Crossing Switch console.

ISLAND LIFE: Kick off your adventure in style

The system takes design inspiration from the new game, with lovely pastel green and blue Joy-Con controllers that are white on the back, white wrist straps and a white Nintendo Switch dock, adorned with images of recognizable characters Tom Nook and Nooklings Timmy and Tommy.

Fans can order the console by itself from 13 March, but it will set you back around £250 ($299).

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!

You can pre-order Animal Crossing: New Horizons now for £44.99!
