Animal Crossing Themed Nintendo Switch Is Coming This March

An Animal crossing themed Nintendo Switch is coming and this brand new mobile machine is going to cost more than a few bells.

After 2019’s Pokemon themed Zaian and Zamazenta Switch Lite got us all in a tizzy about Nintendo’s mini mobile gaming device, a different makeover is coming to the full-sized Nintendo Switch. An Animal crossing version of the Switch is coming to stores on 13 March 2020 and it’s possibly too cute to turn down. Clocking in at $299 or local equivalent. The cute new coat of paint takes very clear inspiration from the latest in the lifestyle sim series, Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Pastel blue Joycons are decorated with white trim and sit either side of the traditional black midsection of the Nintendo Switch. This system slots neatly into a white docking station, adorned with cute characters from the New Horizons game.

All The Loot

This isn’t the only Animal Crossing merch that fans can pick up. Anybody who isn’t in need of a second Switch can grab the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Aloha Edition Carrying Case & Screen Protector and the Nintendo Switch Lite Animal Crossing: New Horizons Aloha Edition Carrying Case & Screen Protector. Alternatively, Animal Crossing: New Horizons releases on Nintendo Switch on 20 March. The latest entry in the much loved franchise whisks players away to an island paradise as part of the Nook Inc. Deserted Island Getaway Package. With plenty of community building, locals to interact with, and a new life to build this game opens up a whole new adventure for Animal Crossing aficionados.

The Animal Crossing themed Nintendo Switch is already available to pre order form major retailers and is likely to leave many existing Switch owners in a bit of a quandry, but who doesn’t want to see Tom Nook and Nooklings Timmy and Tommy cheering them on from front of their docking station.
