It might have slipped under your radar, what with Nintendo, the media, and its fans not really talking about it very much, but Animal Crossing: New Horizons has launched today on Switch. Ha, yeah right.

Of course you know it's out today, but that hasn't stopped Nintendo sharing a celebratory piece of art just for the occasion. The piece comes from the game's producer, Hisashi Nogami, who will no doubt also be known around these parts by Splatoon 2 fans.

You can see it, and how it all came together, in the video below.
