E3 2019: Animal Crossing: New Horizons dated for Switch

11 June 2019 – by Jack Taylor

Nintendo has confirmed that Animal Crossing: New Horizons will launch for Nintendo Switch on 20 March next year.

Revealed during E3's Nintendo Direct following its initial announcement last year, Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the next major title in the life sim series.

In a change to the series norm, rather than taking place in a town or village, players will set up home on a deserted island as part of a new holiday package provided by Tom Nook.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons launches for Nintendo Switch on 20 March 2020.
