Where To Pre-Order Animal Crossing: New Horizon On Nintendo Switch

Animal Crossing: New Horizon Switch Bundles - North America

For North American readers looking for that absolutely lovely Animal Crossing: New Horizons Switch console bundle, there's one important thing to note: there is no 'bundle, as such. The console doesn't come with a download code for Animal Crossing: New Horizons in this region, so you'll want to pre-order the game separately if you can't resist this themed console. And who could blame you. Just look at it!

Animal Crossing: New Horizon On Nintendo Switch - North America

If you're all sorted when it comes to Switch hardware, you'll probably after just the game. Here are the best Animal Crossing: New Horizons pre-orders we've found from the big retailers. There's no one universal pre-order bonus, so you can take your pick from some retailer-exclusive bonuses.

For example, Target currently has a pre-order bonus that includes a lovely Animal Crossing journal, although the Bell Bag that comes with BestBuy's Animal Crossing pre-order is probably our pick. The Bell Bag is available separately for $20, so that's not a bad saving at all. It's just a shame we'll have nothing to put in the Bell Bag by the time we've bought all this AC themed hardware and peripheral loveliness.

Elsewhere, an Animal Crossing: New Horizons pre-order from Amazon UK comes with a nice little exclusive microfibre cloth to keep your Switch's screen pristine as you get down and dirty on your island.

Several of them include the familiar pin badge pre-order bonuses, too.
