2Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Animal Crossing: New Horizons arrived into our lives at just the right time. Released in March 2020, it hit the eShop just as much of the world was entering into lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic. A game free of combat and stress, set on an idyllic island? It was the escape we all needed. And we still do.

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you have no set goals to work towards or tasks to complete. How you approach your time with the game is entirely up to you. Maybe you want to design your own clothing patterns. You might want want to make friends with the villagers. Or maybe you want to go fishing, or hunting for bugs. Or perhaps you want to redesign your entire island, placing new paths and digging new water features, et al. It’s entirely up to you, and that freedom is just one of the ways that Animal Crossing: New Horizons is one of the best Switch games you can buy.
