Here’s a closer look at Animal Crossing: New Horizons

New screens from Nintendo

Now that 2020 is underway, Nintendo is pulling back the curtain a bit on Animal Crossing: New Horizons. It’s nearly here.

Just today the publisher shared a new video clip of the game, and now we’re in the “screenshot drip feed” phase. Case and point: here’s five new screens for the game showcasing multiple seasons and activities, available for your perusal in the gallery below.

Breaking them down, we see classic looks and new digs for Horizons, as well as flower watering, fishing (with what looks like Lily), bug catching (with Kiki?), and snowman making (Fauna? Freya?). It all looks like par for the course for the series, but having experienced Animal Crossing for several decades, there’s a few nuances to pick up on from just a few scant screens.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is due in March of this year (following a delay) and it has people in a frenzy. We haven’t gotten a proper Animal Crossing game in nearly seven years now, with several spinoffs and a microtransaction-riddled mobile game to sate us after 2012’s New Leaf.
