If you're struggling to contain your excitement for Animal Crossing: New Horizons on Switch as much as we are, you'll probably want to take a good look at these lovely new screenshots.
Japanese outlet Famitsu has shared the latest wave of images for the game today, most of which have a focus on crafting, shopping, and your daily activities; others have previously been seen in trailers. Ready to see the menus you'll be staring at for the next six years? Then keep scrolling.
How gorgeous are these key art pieces, too?
In case it had somehow slipped your mind, the game will launch on Switch on 20th March with lots of pre-order options already popping up. If you want to see more of the game's world and the setting in which you'll be making yourself at home, make sure to check out our other recent gallery.

AC is going to be sweet, not long until the 20/03
Not that I want to wish the year away.... HURRY UP 20th March 😍. So excited for my first AC adventure, it looks adorable.
New screenshots always welcome! That said, some of these look familiar 🤔. Oh well, I'm not complaining - I'll take anything I can get ACNH ahead of the inevitable direct coming up!
I still afraid if this Animal Crossing we cannot build a luxury house or modern buildings like on ACNL or Happy Home Designer.
I saw Outdoor / Castaway theme for New Horizons.
@Anti-Matter I see it as a first step. The next game in the series will likely include all of the New Horizons features and has the potential to add on the camping and city features from New Leaf, Pocket Camp, and City Folk in new ways. That's what has happened with all AC games to date, with features from Happy Home Designer making it into Pocket Camp and New Horizons, while still keeping the features from earlier games mostly intact.
i'd be so happy to be able to build a much bigger house. we need more than a basement, second floor and small off shoot rooms. I want a house as big as the museum that would be great
Was this originally created for the Switch or did it start out for 3DS XL. I'm not sure why and maybe it is just the pictures. But it doesn't really look that good. It looks fine as what we are used to with Animal Crossing to look like. But this is on the Switch, they could have upped the graphics more or more vibrant colors.Maybe sharper textures. Still looking forward to it, going to be fun.
Hopefully the game will be included in the two games for £84 offer in the UK . We have 5 Switches in the family and everyone wants it
@Anti-Matter I wouldn't be surprised if that's something possible much further into the game.
Can't wait for this game. It's been awhile my love, I'll see you soon.
Checks calendar. Yup still two months away
@nintendork64 The next game in the series which will come out in 2027? Oh goodie.
The time is coming, just a little bit longer to wait. I can't wait for the newest entry in the AC series.
It's sad that I'll probably have to miss out on this one because of the limitation of having only one Island PER SYSTEM. I mean, come on Nintendo... do you expect, since all my family members (wife + two kids) love the AC games, to buy three additionnal Switches so that everyone can have their own island?
Game looks awesome otherwise. Just sad that families in which everyone is a gamer weren't considered when making it. Strange, coming from a company as family-oriented as Nintendo. Oh well.
Honestly, I just bought Stardew Valley, and I'm perfectly content with that game scratching my life sim itch for now. I don't know how Animal Crossing can top it as far as the depth of gameplay.
Can't wait for Animal Croissant intentially leaving my auto-correct here - goodbye RL!
Considering my first and only experience of the Animal Crossing franchise is Pocket Camp, I’m sure I’ll be amazed. I’m genuinely looking forward to it!
@Mykillvee SD is an amazing game and I was surprised at how much I liked it seeing how I never liked Harvest Moon.
Animal Crossing is a completely different game though, it's way more laid back and encourages taking it easy. You play it every day for a bit for a looooong period of time.
Make new profiles on your switch for each member that wants to play. That's what I've done on my switch. If my children want to play they all know to use the other accounts.
I want this already.
Oh, they already all have their profiles. But this won't do anything as Nintendo said there will be only one island PER SWITCH. Not per account or user. Per system. So all users will have to live on the same island and share the same resources.
So you can imagine the conflicts this will generate with my kids. Or if my son decides to wreck havoc on the trees planted by my daughter... or if she decides to dig holes all around his house.... you get the idea.... Or if someone decides to pick all the fruits, leaving nothing for others, and so on....
As a parent, I really don't want to have to deal with stuff like this. I mean, I could deal with it, and enforce some rules between them, but... I just don't want to play the AC police with my kids. And I don't want to buy a game they love and say to them they can't play it.
So I'll probably won't buy it. Even if I'm a fan since the first one on the GC. (Our wedding cake topping had AC characters - so yeah, we're big fans).
@Realnoize I agree with you on that. They are treating the switch like the 3DS on that regard. But I don't think you should give up playing or letting your kids play it. I'm sure they will still have a blast with it nevertheless. Sharing the same island is still super fun.
I am going to lose so much time in life while playing this game >.< LOL!!!
I hope that last screenshot means you can see the actual 🎆s in the sky rather just their reflections in the water.
its all starting to look the same to me
Getting closer all the time.
Does not sound like real problems to me, just buy it and let em fight.
They keep A.C. close to formula (& Pokemon), why couldn't they do that with Fire emblem, why do they have to change it so drastically each time they release it? Does Mc D's change their formula? does coke change theirs (successfully)? noooooo 3 houses burned to the ground IMO.
19th Mar: TurboGrafx-16 Mini
20th Mar: AC:NH
That's a quite a 1-2 punch.
@Realnoize Suggestion", Whoever does the real-life chores gets to do the A.C. chores... it's both a gift and a curse.lol
I thought Stardew Valley would encourage this game to add more elements to the gameplay, but to be honest it looks so similar to the past two.
I haven't been following this game too closely..
But so far I'm getting camp/naturey vibes...
Which I find disappointing..
I was hoping it would go in the city folk direction and really EXPAND on it..
I'm talking about being able to build
Carousels, Ferris wheels,
Manage and decorate hotels (more rooms!)
and shops (malls)
I have yet to see anything truly "new"
Surely they have new animals, right? ...
Hopefully they're saving something big to surprise us with-closer to launch..
But "Eh"...this is Nintendo..
I'm used to being let down by now ..
Hopefully there’s a lot more they’re not showing us. My New Leaf village was already a tropical paradise, I was planing on going for something sci-fi this time round.
I’ve decided I’m getting this digitally and potentially physically also down the road just so I have a copy in the event the apocalypse happens and the servers go down. I’ll be snuggled up crafting balloon chairs and regal tables while all you other people are running from zombies and trying to survive. I dont expect to last long, but I’ll go out with a smile on my face with an encyclopedia full of bugs and fish.
@sikthvash NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO..... WHYYYYYYYYY :: rubbing screen trying to erase the intentional typo ::
what l want to know, is there any new villagers in this game. Why can't they tell us that, but just don't show us what they look like.
@ChromaticDracula Apologies! It's all because I mentioned to someone I had a chocolate croissant for breakfast this morning ha!
PS - wise move getting both I'd say - I'm starting off with digital for now and will prob stick a sealed copy on the shelf later down the line
I've been ready for this game since like 2017 dudes. Once it's out I will be playing daily for the next year or so almost for sure!
@TAndvig i agree it looks meh
March 20, 2020 can't get here soon enough!
