When Nintendo Switch announced they were coming out with the game, Animal Crossing, I don’t think they or I had any idea of how big it would actually be. I have friends (I am 41) who have been calling to play this game with me. It is hard to get on these day though because my son Zane hogs the switch to play Animal Crossing. It is such a fun and simply adorable game that will keep your mind off our country’s current situation and allow for some plain ole’ fun!
Some of our favorites with the Animal Crossing game includes:
-Enjoy a variety of relaxing activities like gardening, fishing, decorating, and interacting with charming animal characters, as classic Animal Crossing experiences come to life in fun new ways within deserted- island setting.
-Experience a robust new crafting system-collect materials to construct everything from furniture to tools. You can even change the color of your DIY furniture or decorate them with custom designs at the customization workshop.
-Use your-in-game NookPhone to access apps like a camera and a map. The camera can be used to take in-game photos all over the island.
-Take advantage of the Nook Mileage program to find new things to do each day, fulfill certain challenges and earn rewards. Rewards range from in-game Nook INC. merchandise and helpful items that can enrich your time on the island, to tickets you can use to visit the distant islands.
-Customize your character and home, and decorate the landscape (with furniture, if you like) as you create your own island paradise. As the island grows, more facilities will be built, like a museum, showcasing the rich ecosystem of the island, a shop full of ready-made furniture and goods you can’t craft yourself and more.
What is Animal Crossing: New Horizons:
The new Animal Crossing game lets one create your own little slice of paradise as you explore, build, and customize your very own deserted island. A cast of charming animal residents including Tom Nook and Isabelle help grow your budding community. Players make the world their own using a wealth of natural resources to craft everything from tools to creature comforts and decorate however they wish. You can even take a break to enjoy a beach sunset while ocean fishing or hunt down insects at the crack of dawn!
