With an array of new elements and mechanics but keeping its formula well anchored in the series' conventions, New Horizons will delight its players thanks to a marvelous game environment and world development, and its hefty rewards, packing enough content to leave everyone growing attached and enveloped by its experience.

    In case of Animal Crossing, a dull slogan like "this game is addictive" becomes true. I have been, with utmost pleasure, fishing, and planting flowers; I have decorated my house and talked to the residents of the island, and it was all fun. And even though I've spend more than 5o hours with New Horizons, there are still lots I of things haven't seen. If you own a Switch and like a splendid grind, you simply have to play it.

    By consolidating so much power in your hands, the game threatens to upend the Animal Crossing vision of community living.

It’s has so many improvements from previous Animal Crossing game and is an overall fun and charming experience! It’s a lot of fun visiting friends islands and playing online with others! The game provides a hole new level of customization, with the ability to create new higher land, waterfalls, rivers and more! You can also customize many pieces of furniture and place furniture outside. All this allows you to really make the island how you want. Definitely a must have for anyone on the Switch! Expand

    In line with other reviews, i just discovered that the first player obtains MAJOR benefits over the second/third players etc. While i do loveIn line with other reviews, i just discovered that the first player obtains MAJOR benefits over the second/third players etc. While i do love the idea of building an island together with other players, what options do second players get to build? They don't get invited to:

    - get new DIY recipes for welcoming new villagers;
    - help upgrade the island;
    - participate in new projects.

    Understandably, everybody but the first player is losing interest. All they can do is mine resources, after all.. Can this be fixed? I would love for other players to:

    - Receive the same DIY recipes for new villagers;
    - Actually being able to contribute to setting up housing for these new villagers.

    It only allows for only 1 Island per Switch, wich makes player 2s gameplay experience limited. Every game has savestates. This is a joke.

    Allowing only one island and one primary resident per console is unacceptable. Had we known, I'm not sure if we would have bought it.
