Nintendo showed a new trailer for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, showing off the game, some new mechanics, and the fact that the game takes place on a deserted island. The visuals are of course a significant step up from the last home console game (Animal Crossing: City Folk), especially since that was back on the Wii, not the Wii U. The trailer also showed off some new game mechanics, such as jumping over a stream using a pole and creating paths. We also see her growing a small garden and crafting things.

 

At the end of the Animal Crossing: New Horizons trailer, they show a number of human characters gathering at the beach, which of course suggests there are a number of playable characters to choose from. It’s either that, or you may have some human neighbors this time. The bad news, is that the game has been delayed until March 20th, 2020. And lastly, here are a few screenshots from the presentation:

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
