Source: Target US will offer an Animal Crossing: New Horizons Journal gift with purchase [CONFIRMED]

3 months ago 7 Comments

If you’re an American who’s been watching the exciting pre-order bonuses roll out from Spain and the UK lately, rest assured that your country won’t be left out completely!

We can confirm today from a source that an Animal Crossing: New Horizons Journal item will be released as a gift with purchase at Target stores in the United States alongside the game on March 20th. Details are otherwise light, but we believe it will measure at 8.5 by 5.5 inches.

UPDATE 01/22: The Animal Crossing: New Horizons Journal with 2020 Calendar inside has now been confirmed via a Target ad flyer as seen below — pre-order at Target here. (source) Best Buy US has also announced a Tom Nook Phone Badge pre-order bonus!

This information comes to us by the way of Mikuhl who reached out to us with information on the journal. They were able to provide us with a Target document on this bonus item, which we have verified its authenticity well enough to say with confidence that the journal item is planned as a gift with purchase on March 20th.

Technically speaking, we believe that this item will actually be a ‘Gift with Purchase’ in Target-speak, not an actual pre-order bonus. Theoretically this means that you could just walk in on release day and receive the item, no pre-order required. We’ll have to wait for official details to be certain though.

Exactly when this pre-order bonus will be officially announced remains a mystery, but we’re certain that this item is definitely in the works. Stay tuned for more information soon!

Animal Crossing: New Horizons launches worldwide in less than three months from now on March 20th! Check out our release date countdown here, or pre-order the game here. Stay tuned to Animal Crossing World for more news as we approach the release!

Wondering if Canada will be included?

Funny as, if I recall, Target pulled out of Canada.

If we pre-ordered beforehand… do we get the included bonus items too? Or is it only for those who pre-order when these stores update with the item? I already pre-ordered one copy from Best Buy, but I’m getting 1 or 2 more copies for some of my cousins & their kids. I need players. : )

Can you buy the journal after the games been released? Or is it specifically a pre order only item?

I bought the bundle and finally got my order 5 days later…without the journal!
