Animal Crossing Switch Is Coming for New Horizons

Animal Crossing Switch

An Animal Crossing Switch model has been confirmed. Nintendo will be releasing a version of the system that is ready to give you warm and fuzzy feelings. It’s a more pastel take on the system, complete with a themed dock. You’ll even be able to pick it up ahead of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, as it will launch on March 13, 2020 for $299.99.

The Animal Crossing Switch is the standard version of the system, which means you could play it on the go or connect it to your TV. The system itself is black, with grassy designs on the back. Its left Joy-Con is a pastel green, while the right is a pastel blue. Both have matching wrist straps and a white strap they can attach to. The Dock is white with Tom Nook, Timmy, and Tommy standing on an island in the middle of the ocean.

In addition to the Animal Crossing Switch, a special accessory option for the Nintendo Switch Lite model was announced. Nintendo will have an Aloha Edition carrying case with screen protector. These will have distinctive leaves in varying shades of green.

Here’s a better look at the Animal Crossing Switch and the carrying cases.

The Animal Crossing Switch has been confirmed for North America and will appear on March 13, 2020. Animal Crossing: New Horizons will appear on March 20, 2020. Various preorder bonuses are available. For example, Best Buy has a Tom Nook badge, Target has a journal, and GAME has a bag.
