The life sim Animal Crossing: New Horizons will be released for Nintendo Switch on March 20, 2020. In a new spot, Nintendo shows some residents in action. There is not much gameplay to be seen in the short video, but Tom Nook sets the future residents in the mood for their abandoned island as a new home.

Nintendo continues to be stingy with details about Animal Crossing: New Horizons. A new teaser is supposed to put the future islanders in a “vacation mood”. At a presentation Tom Nook presents the travel package “Escape to the deserted island”. It is up to the player to build a village on a lonely, previously uninhabited island.

Video shows short scenes from Animal Crossing: New Horizons 

Nintendo does not give a deep look at the gameplay in the new video spot for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, but it does contain a few short sequences that show the islanders in action, such as handling an ax. 

Players have to collect resources in the Life-Sim, including chopping wood, planting flowers or catching insects, but also discovering archaeological finds and exploring the island world. In this way, new residents join the island community over and over again as the game progresses.

A central game element will also be collecting so-called nook miles, a point currency that can be used for in-game purchases. In this way, players arrive as pieces of furniture or goodies, for example for decoration.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons will offer a multiplayer mode: locally for up to four players, online for up to eight.
