Animal Crossing: New Horizons features a lot of rare creatures that players are constantly hunting. Not the least of which is that this is truly the first major launch of a title on Nintendo Switch this year, and adding to that, as of December 2019, Animal Crossing New Leaf (the previous main entry in the franchise on the 3DS) had sold over 12 million copies. But don't worry, as the next part runs until April 2020.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide. It's New Leaf that's the current record holder for total sales, but New Horizons is ready to take that crown.

Players will be quickly able to cross the rivers very early on in the game, but that won't necessarily help any of the residents you have on your island go over there. But then, when you first arrive on the island, until you craft a couple of in-game items, you'll have to stick with the face and clothing you've got.

If DSN was this generation's I Will Survive then BMH is our Hot Stuff - falling headfirst for desire rather than breaking free. Dua Lipa's new album, Future Nostalgia , was supposed to be out next month.


One independent game analyst has predicted New Horizons will beat that figure in its first few months. At one point, Defoe's character tells Pattinson's that it is "bad luck to kill a seabird", and now Animal Crossing fans are staging that moment within New Horizons. I'm talking mini-fridge, office locker, literally anything with a door that opens.
