Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the first game in the series since Animal Crossing: New Leaf released on the 3DS in 2012. New Horizons has a vacation theme, as you’re whisked away on the Nook Inc. Deserted Island Getaway Package. As usual, you’ll be able to customize your character and your home to your liking, shaping the landscape as you see fit. You can craft items, fish, decorate, and yuck it up with the neighbors.
