Going back eight years ago, that was the last time when Nintendo released a title for Animal Crossing, the New Leaf. Since then, nothing new came on the horizon, until the E3 2019 event. At the event, Nintendo presented the original title for the Animal Crossing- New Horizons.
And the company didn’t stop there, because every time to time is divulging something new about the game. Now we have gathered all the novelties about the game, and we share with you everything we know.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons News and Rumors
Rumors about Nintendo working on the new Animal Crossing title have been on the Internet for many years, but the company waited for the E3 2019 to share the great news. A trailer is available on the Internet, so you can see a little inside from the new game that will come to Switch. Talking about Switch, the company planned initially to launch New Horizons on the console in 2019, but at the E3, Nintendo delayed the game. So speaking of a launch date for the Animal Crossing on Switch, we can say somewhere around March 20, 2020.
However, the New Horizons will come, unfortunately, without support for cloud saves. It is not the only Switch title that has this kind of restriction, and the purpose is to prevent cheating and manipulation of the gameplay. But we still have good news about the game, because Animal Crossing: New Horizons is coming with the multiplayer mode added. The island that you live on can accept up to four local players and eight players in the online sessions. Of course, for the online session, you need a Switch Online subscription that starts from $4 for one month, up to $35 for the annual family plan.
