Animal Crossing Switch is one of the most anticipated game of 2019. No official information have been released since the official announcement where Nintendo declared the existence of the village simulator. Today a rather official video emerged declaring the unfortunate delay of Animal Crossing for Nintendo Switch. But rest assured, Animal Crossing Switch is not delayed.

Rumors have been circulating around Animal Crossing Switch for months now. With names like Animal Crossing – Welcome Home, Island Life and others appearing almost on the daily. Fans of the game are holding their breath for this years E3 where Nintendo will hopefully show us some gameplay and provide us with a release date, just like we received for the upcoming Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield.

The video that was released today features development head Shinya Takahashi who apparently talks about Animal Crossing Switch and it being delayed due to quality issues of the game as seen in the cleverly written subtitles of the video.

However some internet troll trying to upset the (understandably) impatient Animal Crossing community, used the Metroid Prime 4 video in which Nintendo announced that the game would undergo a complete reboot due to the company being unhappy with the quality of the game.

So no, do not panic, Animal Crossing Switch has not been delayed. While there is a chance it could still be delayed, Nintendo recently confirmed in a call to its investors that Animal Crossing Switch is still slated to be released in 2019 along with Pokemon Sword and Shield and other Nintendo games.

You can watch the troll video below.

myPotatoGames was founded out of my huge love for Animal Crossing, besides spending a lot of time taking care of my virtual village I enjoy painting, creating things or look up funny and cute dog pictures on the internet. My preferred office location is somewhere on a remote island, in the middle of the South Pacific.

  1. While I am not unhappy that they now really delayed the game (more time to make it masterpiece!) it still is a little sad, because I really hoped to play it during the winter – it would have been so lovely! But now, we can start into the new, warmer season next year with it and experiencing spring will be wonderful!
