It’s been five years since the release of Animal Crossing: New Leaf for the Nintendo 3DS and more than a year since the launch of the Nintendo Switch. Since then fans have been clamouring for a new Animal Crossing game for the Switch. Nintendo gave us a mobile spinoff title in Pocket Camp earlier in the year, but there hadn’t been a peep of anything in development for the Switch.
Today during the Nintendo Direct presentation Nintendo finally confirmed the development of a new mainline Animal Crossing game coming to the Nintendo Switch next year. No firm date has been set with just 2019 as the release date.
