Escape to a deserted island and create your own paradise as you explore, create, and customize in the Animal Crossing: New Horizons game. Your island getaway has a wealth of natural resources that can be used to craft everything from tools to creature comforts. You can hunt down insects at the crack of dawn, decorate your paradise throughout the day, or enjoy sunset on the beach while fishing in the ocean. The time of day and season match real life, so each day on your island is a chance to check in and find new surprises all year round. Get ready to make a splash in your own island paradise. A series of free updates* to the Animal Crossing: New Horizons game for the Nintendo Switch system will deliver new features, including the ability to swim and dive for sea creatures.

These free updates are among some of the new experiences coming to your island life over the course of the summer and beyond.

Beloved franchise Animal Crossing gets ready for its Nintendo Switch debut!

If the hustle and bustle of modern life’s got you down, Tom Nook has a new business venture up his sleeve that he knows you’ll adore: the Nook Inc. Deserted Island Getaway Package! Sure, you’ve crossed paths with colorful characters near and far. Had a grand time as one of the city folk. May’ve even turned over a new leaf and dedicated yourself to public service! But deep down, isn’t there a part of you that longs for…freedom? Then perhaps a long walk on the beach of a deserted island, where a rich wealth of untouched nature awaits, is just what the doctor ordered!

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!

This new addition to the Animal Crossing series launches March 20 2020, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch system.

  • Customize your character and home, and decorate the landscape (with furniture, if you like!), as you create your very own island paradise.
  • Experience a robust new crafting system—collect materials to construct everything from furniture to tools!
  • Enjoy a variety of relaxing activities like gardening, fishing, decorating, interacting with charming NPCs, and more, as classic Animal Crossing experiences come to life in fun new ways within the deserted-island setting.

  • Eight players can play together on one player’s island via online multiplayer** or local wireless.

Celebrate the Holidays in Animal Crossing: New Horizons with Seasonal Activities and a Winter Update

Enjoy Winter Weather and New Update Additions Like Turkey Day, Toy Day, More Hairstyle Options and Save Data Transfer

Bundle up, it’s sweater weather! Colder weather may be arriving, but luckily, it’s also ushering in warm holiday cheer in the Animal Crossing: New Horizons game for the Nintendo Switch system. Alongside the auburn-colored maple leaves that are beginning to drift down from the trees, islands located in the Northern Hemisphere will be visited by tranquil blankets of snow. Plus, on Nov. 19, a free update* will arrive for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, introducing holiday events and enhancements, giving you opportunities to connect** with friends and family and enjoy island life together with your Animal Crossing: New Horizons residents.

If you’re looking to spend quality holiday time with friends and family virtually, special occasions*** such as Turkey Day on Nov. 26 and Toy Day on Dec. 24 will be added with the new update, delivering holiday events that can be experienced with others. It’s a great time of year to welcome visitors over and show off your island while enjoying each other’s company. The winter update also brings new Reactions and hairstyles to Animal Crossing: New Horizons, an upgrade option for expanded in-game home item storage, and save data transfer capabilities.**

The following features can all be enjoyed regardless of which hemisphere your Animal Crossing: New Horizons island is located in, beginning Nov. 19:

  • Turkey Day – On Turkey Day, which will take place this year on Nov. 26, the first-class chef Franklin will arrive and host a gathering in the plaza.**** You can help Franklin collect ingredients to go in the dishes that will be on display in the plaza. You can even receive a gift from Franklin as a thank you for helping him cook.
  • Toy Day – It’s the time of the year when island residents rejoice … The month of Toy Day is nearly at hand! You might notice your island and plaza gradually becoming more festive with holiday-themed decorations over the coming weeks.*** Keep an eye out for decorated trees, too. Shaking these may drop ornaments which will allow you to craft holiday furniture recipes. From Dec. 1 to Dec. 25, you’ll be able to purchase toys from Nook’s Cranny and find holiday-themed clothing at the Able Sisters shop. When it’s officially Toy Day on Dec. 24, Jingle will pay a special visit to your island to spread holiday cheer. If you help him deliver presents, you’ll also receive a gift!
  • Reactions and Hairstyles – Nine new Reactions will be available with this update, which can be obtained by redeeming Nook Miles at the Nook Stop terminal located in Resident Services. Six new hairstyle options can also be acquired by redeeming Nook Miles, so get ready to express yourself and let your personality shine!
  • Home Storage Upgrade – If you’ve expanded your in-game home to its largest size and paid off your debt, you’ll now be able to apply for a home storage expansion by speaking to Tom Nook at Resident Services. Congrats on achieving the next level of home ownership. This will expand your home storage to 2400 slots. Think of all the items you can now store and access from the comfort of your island home!
  • Visit Random Islands in Dreams – Have you enjoyed dozing off and visiting other islands within dreams? Now you’ll be able to choose to visit random islands while dreaming, opening up new vistas of inspiration for your own island customizations.**
  • Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp Collaboration – To commemorate Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp’s third anniversary, a Pocket Camp smartphone model will become available in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. To receive this smartphone model, you’ll need to link both the Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp app and Animal Crossing: New Horizons to your Nintendo account. For more information, please visit https://ac-pocketcamp.com/en-US/horizons.
  • Island and Resident Data Transfers – Two new features are arriving to offer expanded flexibility for your island and resident data. The whole island transfer feature will enable you to move your user save data, along with the island itself and all the residents, to another system. This service will be facilitated by the free Island Transfer Tool app in Nintendo eShop. For players who are not the island’s Resident Representative, a single-player transfer feature allows you to transfer resident data to another system. This includes your resident’s name, appearance and equipment, along with your inventory, home and storage. Additional details about the benefits and limitations of these new data transfer services can be found at https://animal-crossing.com/new-horizons/#transfer.
  • Seasonal Items to Celebrate New Year’s Eve – New seasonal items will be available starting Dec. 1 at Nook Stop. Between Dec. 26 and Dec. 31, there will also be several festive items to commemorate New Year’s Eve. In addition to the update content, you can look forward to a countdown event starting at 7 p.m. on Dec. 31. With Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you can meet in-game to ring in the new year with friends, family and your island residents!

We hope you enjoy all the new options and holiday festivities arriving to your island. The next update will be arriving in late January. Please look forward to more information in the coming months.

Dive into Summer Fun With New Updates to Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Get ready to make a splash in your own island paradise.

Q: I have 3 kids all getting a lite for Christmas. Do they each need separate copies of the games or can I buy one and it work on all three consoles at once? 

Anonymous 8 months ago
Best Answer :

If you only have one cartridge, they will all have to play at different times. You can make a different character and island for each system using the same cartridge. But you can only play on one system at a time unless you each have a cartridge. And if you have more than one cartridge you can visit each other on their islands. You might need the Nintendo membership also to do that.

Q: If I have a physical copy of Animal Crossing: I've been playing on the Lite but want to get a new Switch, and put the game card into it, will my island and everything still be there?

Best Answer :

All switch games save to the console, not the cartridge. This means that any game, including acnl, will have different data on different consoles

Q: List of swtich games like animal crossing

TheKillerFro 1 year ago
Best Answer :

There are not really any that I am aware of, but maybe I just never heard of one like it. The closest I think you can get is a game called Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles; however, I don't really think it's that similar to AC. It's an open world game. You have to look for "sprites" to open sections of the maps. There are villagers that ask you to do things, you can trade items you find and there is a farm you can own. I didn't play it for long because I just couldn't remember the map or locations of items, but it's very laid back with beautiful graphics. A lot of people don't like the controls and how the character moves, but I think that might just be more about getting used to the characters boundaries. The next closest that I can think of is called Stardew Valley. Although it's more of a farm simulating game, there are people in town that you can get to know, and the more you get to know them, you get "heart events," showing that you are becoming closer friends. There is a board in the town where the townspeople can ask for you to do tasks, plus you get mail from them with recipes and whatnot. Stardew Valley can be a very addicting game... I have heard that My Time At Portia is very similar to Stardew Valley, with different graphics, but I have never played MTAP. Good luck on your quest to find a similar game.

Q: If I have the digital version of Animal Crossing, can it be played on more than one Switch Lite. I have two daughters.

jakeith38 7 months ago
Best Answer :

I think you will find that you need a separate license for each. The general rule is: One license = one island. Trying to run it on two consoles, even if not at the same time, is a recipe for heartbreak. Whoever installs and runs it first will basically get their island "attached" to that license and the other daughter will not be able to do anything to speak of.

Great new installment in animal crossing. New twists with DIY tools and bulid just about anything. New tools needed to acces places. It is annoying that tools break quickly. I recommend placing a workbench in your house so you have all of your supplies right there and don't have to lug back and forth to Tom Nook's.

I’m hooked on this game. It’s simple and geared more for kids, but for some reason I can’t put it down. Parts of it are hard to figure out without using YouTube, but I would have eventually figured it out I’m sure. I wish the multiplayer had more to it, but it’s still fun to visit my daughters islands and link up online.
