Starting with a new trailer from Nintendo of Japan.

No kidding. And I kid you not, my cousins bought themselves a Nintendo Switch, because of Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

I’m looking forward to it too...but then I’m reminded of New Leaf and how I didn’t play that as much as Wild World or City Folk. I’m definitely looking forward to eventually getting New Horizons since the gameplay looks very nice and would be a great chill and play game, but I think it will be one I get later on in the year and get some impressions first.

Animal Crossing (excluding that Wii U game we shall not speak of) has never disappointed though, so I’m looking forward to New Horizons regardless of when I get it.

Fun fact: a few weeks ago I was in a GameStop and they had half a dozen brand new copies, Amiibo and cards included, labeled as pre-owned for $3. Worth it for the two Amiibo.

That doesn't surprise me. A good friend of mine bought a Switch for Metroid Prime 4.

All he uses it for is to bring to Smash tournaments as a set up for now. He is gonna be waiting for a while yet on it.

I didn't get too much into New Leaf as well. A big part of it has to do with the fact that I don't care much on the 3DS. Even with a good grip, I can't play it for more then 3 hours at a time unless I have it on a stand or something.

I paid full price for the Wii U game.  It wouldn't be the biggest waste of money if they didn't add the Island survival game into the 3DS game as a free patch.

I really liked New Leaf, but the weird thing is the only time I ever really got into the game was during the middle of the summer, usually end of June/early July. At that point the only things you could do are insect hunt and fish for the rare summer bugs/sharks. I don’t think in all the years I’ve played an Animal Crossing game I’ve participated in the end of the year events other than the Acorn Festival where you can earn the special Mushroom set of items.

I really like Animal Crossing since it is a relaxing series, but for some reason I only ever seem to jump into it during the summer! Haha

I am the polar opposite. I typically play the game in Fall/Winter lol

In that case, we’ll trade off copies during those seasons so the other can help each of us get what we miss out on. 🤪

It’s a guaranteed plan! Haha

Same trailer as the one Nintendo of Japan released two days ago (or yesterday for some of you), but in English.

Ooooo I didn't realize we had a thread for this. This is definitely the game I'm most looking forward to this year. Hopefully we can all check out each other's islands. I'll likely be going digital as it's the perfect game to hop on for 30 minutes, do my dailies, and move onto something else without having to switch (heh) the cartridge out every day or whenever I want to play it again.

I will be playing this as well, my wife has preordered it (will see if we both need a copy or not), I have been playing the mobile version since it came out (I'm almost to Level 200).

I really hope they don't base too much of it off the mobile game. From what I hear it's kind of greedy.

Yeah it can be, both in time and $$, but I don't spend any $$ on it :)

Once the game comes out I think we should all exchange our fruits and get some orchards growing right away :D

Sure, I’d be down for that....in exchange for YOUR SOOOOOOOOOOULS!!!

Or of something of equal value. The Bank of Yangus accepts cash, credit, check, or blood if you cannot provide the appropriate fruit or soul payment.

Done.

My Friend Code is SW-6314-5280-5921. And my user name is my real name, which just so happens to be the same real name as Woodus's real name.
