IT’S FINALLY HERE! Your demands have been heard and Nintendo has officially announced a special edition Animal Crossing: New Horizons system!
This amazing special edition Animal Crossing: New Horizons Nintendo Switch comes with a gorgeous set of Animal Crossing Joy-Con controllers in pastel blue and green colors, with white on the back of them and matching wrist-straps attached.
On the included Nintendo Switch dock, the design has received a makeover coming in a white color scheme for the first time ever! It’s decorated with a lovely scene of Tom Nook, Timmy, and Tommy on the deserted island surrounded by ocean all across the bottom of the dock.
Even the back of the console is highly decorated with an intricate design featuring various ‘islands’ of Animal Crossing characters and icons, like Margie, Fauna, Bunnie, and Octavian.
If you can’t wait to get your hands on this exciting special edition, you won’t have to wait much longer as it will launch one week earlier than Animal Crossing: New Horizons on March 13th in North America! However, it will release on the standard March 20th date in Europe, Australia, and Japan.
Finally, it’s important to note that this special edition system only comes with a copy of Animal Crossing: New Horizons included in SOME regions! For Europe and Japan, a digital download game code is included. In North America, there is no game included with the system.
You can pre-order the Special Edition Animal Crossing: New Horizons Nintendo Switch at the following places:
- US: Amazon, Best Buy, Target, GameStop
- UK: Official Nintendo Store, GAME, ShopTo
- CA: Best Buy, EB Games
- AU: EB Games
But wait, there’s more! For those who already own a Nintendo Switch and don’t plan on purchasing a whole new system, the company is also releasing an official Animal Crossing: New Horizons Aloha Edition Carrying Case featuring two different leaf patterns on each side of the case.
This official carrying case made by Nintendo itself will come with a screen protector included too. It’ll be available on March 13th, alongside the special edition system, in versions for both the regular Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite.
So, what do you think of this amazing new Animal Crossing Nintendo Switch?! I think Nintendo really knocked it out of the park with this one, especially the white decorated dock, so the wait was well worth it! Let me know in the comments if you’ll be getting one.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons launches worldwide in less than two 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!
