Well, Animal Crossing was finally shown off during the Nintendo E3 Direct, but the news is both good and bad.

The upcoming Switch title will be called Animal Crossing: New Horizons; you can get a first look at it in the video above. It appears to feature all of the cuteness and chores you'd expect to see, although this early footage only scratches the surface of the game, we're sure.

We do have some additional information on this one, directly from Nintendo:

Players embark on an ultra-exclusive Nook Inc. Deserted Island Getaway Package and enjoy a peaceful existence full of creativity, charm and the freedom to roll up their sleeves and make their new life whatever they want it to be. Players can collect resources they can craft into everything from creature comforts to handy tools as they set up a homestead they can decorate freely, both inside and out.

If you watched the Direct live, however, you'll no doubt be aware that the game has sadly been delayed until 2020. You'll be able to get your hands on it from 20th March; Nintendo said that the delay was put in place "to ensure that the game is the best it can be".

Are you sad to hear that it's been delayed? Were you hoping to see a little more? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.
