Description

Escape to a deserted island and create your own paradise as you explore, create, and customize in the Animal Crossing: New Horizons game. Your island getaway has a wealth of natural resources that can be used to craft everything from tools to creature comforts. You can hunt down insects at the crack of dawn, decorate your paradise throughout the day, or enjoy sunset on the beach while fishing in the ocean. The time of day and season match real life, so each day on your island is a chance to check in and find new surprises all year round.

Show off your island utopia to family and friends—or pack your bags and visit theirs. Whether playing online* or with others beside you**, island living is even better when you can share it. Even without hopping on a flight, you’ll meet a cast of charming animal residents bursting with personality. Friendly faces like Tom Nook and Isabelle will lend their services and happily help you grow your budding community. Escape to your island getaway—however, whenever, and wherever you want.

Polygon - "...crafting systems in this game are lovely."
The Verge - "the video game equivalent of a relaxing getaway…"
IGN - "... full of surprises."
GameSpot - "the ability to alter your island to fit your grand plans is exciting. "

I bought this game for my two daughters. It turns out you can only have one island. I bought another game thinking switching cartridges would work....nope. So I have a sad kid who can only play on her sister’s island.....which means she can’t play because she can’t build her house where she wanted to and her sister doesn’t want her to complete any tasks for her.

Would've given 4.5/5 if I could. The game is perfect for casual players, but the limitless customization will satisfy any hardcore player if they are fine channeling their drive into creative and somewhat grindy pursuits. What sets this Animal Crossing apart from its predecessors is massively enhanced customization with custom player-created/imported pixel art and terraforming. That said, the game's pacing and personality make it among the most approachable games of all time to non-gamers as well. Despite being released multiple years since the release of the nintendo switch, it will be among those that define the console for years to come.

This game is awesome! I can’t say it enough how addicted to this game i am! I finally put it down to write this review. The only thing i don’t like about it is the fruit, the only way you can get more is by going to a random island (by using a nook miles ticket(which is 2,000 miles by the way!!)) And then you could only possibly get one more fruit you dont have. If you want more, you have to visit a friends island. And to do that you either have to do local play or online play. In local play you need to be within 10 feet of someone who has the game, or when you choose online play, you need nintendo switch online. But besides those the game is fantastic, not as relaxing as the other ones but super fun still.

No Journal?

I am honestly confused about one thing. The game is amazing, but I pre-ordered it in January. Since I ordered it from Target, I was wondering if the Animal Crossing Journal would be included in my purchase? The game was delivered yesterday but no journal. Thanks.

All players share 1 town

ElaineMarie - 11 days ago
You can only have one town and all players must share the town :( We were looking forward to each family member being able to grow and design their own towns but sadly this is not an option on AC:NH.
