One of the most anticipated games heading into E3 2019 was Animal Crossing for Switch, and now we’ve finally gotten our first look at it during Nintendo’s latest Direct presentation. Now officially dubbed Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the upcoming installment has been pushed back to 2020, and it’ll take the life sim series to uncharted territory–literally.
New Horizons begins with players boarding the Nook Inc. charter, which will ferry them to a deserted island where they’ll set up a tent and establish their own town. As you settling into your new home, you’ll do traditional Animal Crossing activities, such as shaking trees and catching fish. You’ll also be able to craft items at Tom Nook’s workbench.
Nintendo first officially announced Animal Crossing: New Horizons during a Direct broadcast last September, after revealing that Isabelle would be joining Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s roster as a playable fighter. At the time, the game was slated to launch in 2019, but it’ll now release on March 20, 2020.
That isn’t all Nintendo announced during its E3 2019 Direct. The company also revealed a new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC character, the Hero from Dragon Quest, as well as some Luigi’s Mansion 3 gameplay details and more. You can watch the E3 Direct here.
