Nintendo reveals Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing Edition

Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing Edition

Nintendo has announced that an Animal Crossing Special Edition Nintendo Switch bundle would be going on sale. The console is currently available to pre-order worldwide, though it seems as though only UK consumers can purchase the console with a copy of Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

The new console will launch alongside the game when it releases on March 20, 2020, and there’s even a new Nintendo Switch Pro Controller Animal Crossing Edition launching on the same day. The Pro Controller is pastel coloured and features one of the game’s characters on the right-hand side.

In the US, at the time of writing, the console cannot be purchased with a copy of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. This is why the console is cheaper to purchase in the region, and why all UK versions cost much more.

The console bundle features a completely customised Nintendo Switch console and dock. The dock features a decal of the characters from the game sailing on the water in a small raft. The Switch tablet itself is decorated with various Animal Crossing iconography on the back, while the front remains plain because the screen takes up most of the space.

The bundle also packages in two Joy Con controllers, each a different pastel colour and only available with this edition of the console. Finally, the UK version of the bundle also comes with a download code for Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Since it was announced, Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been a highly-anticipated game for all Switch users. The series is known for providing hundreds of hours of content to those who want to play it, with a huge number of activities for players to take part in.

The series are generally considered to be life simulators, though they differ quite a lot from the more serious games in the genre. Players can build a home, farm fruit and vegetables, and work to please every NPC in the game. Players can also ignore all of this, complete the story, and finish their time with the games if they want to.

New Horizons takes Animal Crossing to an exotic island, offering players an escape from the normal daily grind of life. With many people wishing they could do this in real life, the game is sure to resonate with anyone who plays it.
