Description

Animal Crossing: New Horizons for Nintendo Switch is a simulation game that is mainly single-player with some multiplayer elements and is the fifth iteration of the game to feature the familiar and well-beloved face of Tom Nook, this time on a desert island location. As with the other Animal Crossing games, you will build your home, get to know and help out your animal friend neighbours to build a community.

About the Game


Your first residence will be a tent which should be upgraded into a house which can then be expanded, embellished and improved as you play. As neighbours move into the area, you can help them with their tents and houses, and if you have neighbours already established in the area when you arrive, they will help you to build and establish yours.

Improvements to your home and gathering resources is made easier by using the new, intuitive and speedy menu that will provide you with all the tools and advice you need to complete the task at hand. Gather raw materials, craft them into desirable or valuable objects that you can then use to improve the lot of your neighbours and make your home and community look wonderful!

Character Builder


For the first time, you can select a more tailored skin tone right from the beginning: in previous versions you had to stand outside in the sunshine to ‘tan’ your character to the desire level, which is not ideal. You can tailor your character to suit your likes, picking details like hair-style, eye colour and even shape, choose from a range of noses and mouths, and even pick a unique colour for your cheeks, giving you an avatar that is distinctive and uniquely yours.

Seasonal Fun


The seasons change in your new island home so you can build snowmen in winter, rake leaves in autumn, plant your crops and flowers in spring, and enjoy lovely sunshine in summer while you catch cute bugs and insects. You can choose which island you want to live on, and do think about this in the initial stages of the game, as each island has different features and you will even find a difference between settling on the northern side of the island or the southern side

It’s not all fun and games though, danger is a new addition to this game, and if your carefree avatar should come across a wasp or scorpion they might get stung. A few stings will affect the avatar’s look – think lumpy bee-sting swellings! – and a lot of stings will cause the character to pass out! There is medicine that can cure the avatar which can be sourced from residential services (more about which, see below).

Useful Details


Keep your ears peeled (so to speak) for the daily broadcast from island CEO Tom Nook who provides updates about island life that will help you to complete tasks, learn about new features and generally stay up-to-date with the game. The following features will also enhance your gaming experience:

  • Nookphone: Like your own mobile phone you can take photos and navigate about the island. As time goes on more features become available and you can create custom designs and recipes.

  • Nook Mileage Program: Earn ‘miles’ as you play through the game, and then cash them in and see all the benefits and advantages that the program has to offer.

  • Airport: Travel between your island and a friend’s – or welcome others to your island to help you with your tasks. Don’t worry about malicious multiplayers destroying your island or changing your plans: visitors must go along with the host’s plans, so enjoy their company and relax knowing that everything will be left in great condition after the visit! Up to eight players can fit onto an island at any time.

  • Residential Services: This is your one-stop shop for medical treatments, the shop where you can buy extra resources, free tutorials to learn how to make clothes, craft recipes and even advanced classes on how to customise your crafted items by changing the colours and so on.

  • Animal Crossing: New Horizons for Nintendo Switch is available for purchase on Instant Gaming for a fraction of its retail price. You will receive an official key and be able to play the game in seconds. Play smart. Pay less.

    Amazing Game! I recomend this game to everyone you like chill games…

    My personaly grade of this game is 10/10.

    So much to explore, build, etc.

    And Visiting friends on their island is making this game so much cooler, but yeah you need to buy a pass for nintendo.

    Good game, wasted 2 month of the early covid with it, though the beginning let you imply that there is many things to do in this game, once you get everything done, it's only up to rng to find the few rare habitant rince and repeat nothing more
    • Customization
    • Time waste
    • Repetitive
    • Not much to do

    My first AC game to be honest. Heard about the franchise for a long time but never tried it. Wanted to see what was the hype when it came out, bought it in April, never went away since then. Even have it on my other switch.
    Though I can admit that you can be bored to play with 2 islands.

    The best AC game so far. It's super entertaining, you can decorate a lot, both inside your house and outside in your island. There are many many things to do and objectives to achieve. Residents are really fun.
    • I love that you can put furniture all around the island.
    • You've got plenty of hair choices.
    • I love that there are so many updates!
    • The season change is amazing
    • Some days there is not much to do.
    • I wish you could have more space on the island.
    • I wish you could make your house even bigger.
    • I wish there could be more residents on your island.

    I really love this game especially with the new updates for the summer edition and the Halloween edition. I hope that the creators will continue with that. I would most definitely recommend this game.

    Pre ordered this game, it's the first one I'm playing in this franchise. I've never been so addicted. It came out right about when quarantine started and I've been playing it daily ever since. Very good relaxing experience.
    • Very relaxing
    • Lacks content if u reach a certain point

    Such a disappointment. The game is so bare bone, there is nothing to do after just a few days! The game is so repetitive and shallow, you’re going to do the same menial task over and over again, and in real time!

    What really pisses me off is how bad the villagers are, stupid dialogues.

    Really can’t recommend it.
    • Pretty ?
    • Repetitive
    • Boring
    • Abysmal designs choices
    • Cut contents

    Very fun to play. Definitely worth if you've been an animal crossing fan before but also for a first-time AC-Experience. Especially fun to play if you have friends playing it aswell.
    I've been playing it casually so far and every single hour has been enjoyable so far (70+ hrs)
    • Fun to play with friends
    • Casual
    • Nintendo online quality
    • Roads don't connect with everything (bridges, stores)
