In this Nintendo Switch game, you get to explore and create your own island with its own structures and inhabitants. You get to decide the vibe of your island getaway and the comforts you would like it to boast.

All of the animal residents on the island of your dreams have their own personalities. They lend you a hand in building the community and keeping you company. The characters are loving and charming.
Part of the original Nintendo Animal Crossings series, this one is not designed too different from the other core games. It is a low-pressure gameplay piece where you can do whatever you like. If you want to plant trees go ahead, you can help support the local museum so that you can enjoy the soon to showcase exhibition, or you can simply decorate your house, switching wallpapers whenever you like and buying new furniture.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons Switch is primarily about living in a world that is free of the world’s most pressing crises that are out of our control. This message relays true now more than any other moment in time.
The series has been sought after ever since Nintendo announced the release of the Switch console. The first Animal Crossing released in 2001 on GameCube. If you have played that original version, you will enjoy the modifications made to this new one. So give the whole series a try if you like till you get to this one.
You settle on an untouched deserted island amongst animals. The first thing you get to own is a tent. You have access to an airport through which new friends and animals arrive on the island you are trying to populate into a living space that you have built.
The island thrives on a proper economy, with tents reserved for buying and selling, as well as hand made crafts. You can collect fruits from the thick forestry and sell it for Bells, which is the island’s money. It is the fictional life you always wanted.
Every day, the gamer gets rewarded with new tools and gets introduced to new apps. As your own personal civilization is thriving, you start making things of use, such as a fishing pole out of the tools you got that day. Further, you might fashion a net to evade mosquitoes and insects, and even a ladder which gives you access to more parts around the island and keeps your explorations going.
As your gameplay progresses and you continue to do better at building more of your space on the island, more animals want to flock towards you. Every time you earn a reward, the game encourages you to invest back into the island.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons Switch is more than just a seamless and satisfying loop; it is a lesson that no one taught you.
The accomplishments in this game feel great, almost like you would think in real life. Tackling debts, borrowing loans, and putting back the cash the game rewards you within building something is fulfilling in many ways. At the end of the day, you don’t just feel like you have won at a game, you feel like you spent your day doing things that are worthwhile.
One would ask why out of all the games, does this matter so much?
Finding a purpose other than a nine to five has become so significant for so many of us, that it is hard to experience progress anymore. With the exceptional interface and updates that we have seen through the evolution of each new game in the series, Animal Crossing: New Horizons Switch pushes you to do ordinary things that are rewarded extraordinarily and not unlike they would be in real life.
No matter how you have decided to play this game, you are now responsible for an island, and you can do whatever you like with this piece of land. The possibilities are endless.
Before you get the final verdict, one of the things that may not be a desirable feature amongst a lot of people is that you have to wait for a lot of things to be unlocked. But there is a way around it as well, just set your Switch clock on an advance quicker, and you will not have to be patient about the real-time.
The time feature is not a glitch but a part of Animal Crossing on purpose. It is understandable that the jobs are as close to real-life as possible that certain things would take time as well as they do in reality. This is where patience towards a reward comes in.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons Switch is available on Amazon for $59.99.
If there was a better time for going halfway across the world to a beautiful island that had all the amenities you could ask for and talking animals to keep you company. You know it’s anything but now.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons Switch is not a game; it is a blissful vacation. It is addictive, and its pure intent is to make you feel good and fulfilled. It is your gentle fantasy that is pleasing to the eyes, and at the end of it, you get to say, I created all this.
If you cannot leave your house and have socially isolated yourself, this should be your go-to game to help you feel like you are doing something as the days pass by while you are also actually helping society by staying indoors.
