Just in case you'd forgotten about it, or somehow survived through the last few months without seeing it almost everywhere, Nintendo has released two new commercials in Japan for Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
The first stars a Japanese family who incorporate the game into their daily lives. It reminds us of the versatility offered by the Switch and Switch Lite models, that all members of your wonderful, happy family can enjoy the game at their own pace, and that - as an Animal Crossing player - you'll obviously have lovely, quiet children who help with the cooking.
The second is a funky gameplay trailer which looks at the game's latest major update, showing off its new features like swimming and diving, new island arrival Pascal, and an art gallery that has way more paintings than ours does.
We recently discussed the idea that Animal Crossing's rollout of new updates has the potential to make the game feel 'incomplete', which generated a healthy discussion among our readers on how we all seem to enjoy the game differently. Feel free to give that a read if you're interested.
Otherwise, we'd love to know how your islands are coming along in the comments below.
Awesome game, deserves all it's sales, and in Japan it's simply printing money.
I have played for 170+ hours and still terraforming my island slowly as i need to measure the size of public places i want to put on my island.
I want a pair of mums yellow dungarees please. Oh and somebody to translate the letter that mum and dad looked so chuffed to get 😂
I just (animal) crossed the 200 hour playtime mark.
@CairiB I used Google Lens on it, and it basically said "there's pudding in the fridge"...
I've played Animal Crossing every day since it released. Hundreds of hours later, I never find myself getting bored. It's just an incredible game.
That's another million sales confirmed.
