So what is Animal Crossing: New Horizons
The game is the fifth installment in the Animal Crossing franchise and the game is an even chiller version of its predecessors as you are dumped onto a deserted island which you can recreate as your own paradise, it is a real-life simulator. This time around you focus on your vacation as you are provided with basic supplies, camping tent and a NookPhone and you make the best of your time on the deserted island as seasons come and go, friends drop by to visit. The release is set on March 20th.
This time the franchise will allow you a fine control on the shape of your island towns, the trailer also consists of multiple islands with different feels. There is an Island with Greek feels, a Hispanic culture-inspired island that we are excited to see and a lot more!
