Animal Crossing New HorizonsNintendo of Europe

After hours and hours of meticulous solo play in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, it can be super exciting to finally invite a friend or two to visit your beautiful island. There are new sights to see, new fruits and items to trade and more, so it perhaps comes as no surprise that even Nintendo's official channels are getting in on the action.

Nice work, Nintendo.
