Animal Crossing New Horizons release date revealed

When is the Animal Crossing New Horizons release date? Not 2019 anymore.

Animal Crossing New Horizons release date has been moved from 2019, so we'll need to wait a little longer for Tom Nook to whisk us away to paradise.

Koizumi-san and the Nintendo team have apologized for the delay, but they insist it is to make sure the game is as good as possible when it arrives. Which we love. In the first trailer of Animal Crossing New Horizons we saw a tent being set up on an island getaway, courtesy of our friend Tom Nook who has moved into the travel agency business. But when will we be able to play Animal Crossing New Horizons?

When is the Animal Crossing New Horizons Release Date?

The Animal Crossing New Horizons release date is March 20, 2020. It's been pushed back from its original release window but the game is looking so charming that we're not even mad.

Apparently our luxury camping holiday will cost us 49,800 bells when we are allowed to board the plane, but that price will include a NookPhone which we can use to begin Animal Crossing New Horizons multiplayer. We're not sure we want a phone to interrupt our nice camping holiday on an island, but I guess it's an easy way to keep up with our repayments on this expensive holiday loan. 

Now we know when to expect the Animal Crossing New Horizons release date, we can start planning our holiday! Will we be able to bring our friends along? Will Animal Crossing New Horizons have multiplayer and co-op? Keep up with our E3 2019 coverage to know everything!
