Animal Crossing: ‘New Leak’

A new leak by LootPots suggests that Animal Crossing for Switch could potentially hit the shelves as early as Q1 2019.

The site, which is notorious for its Nintendo news and reviews, states that “information from one of our sources suggests that Animal Crossing on Nintendo Switch is most likely set for a late Q1 or early Q2 (calendar year) release date.”

Which in layman’s terms means sometime around March/April 2019. The game is also rumored to be targeting a suggested retail price of €59,99.

However, with no confirmation from Nintendo regarding the game’s release date, this information should be treated as a rumour.

About Animal Crossing:

Animal Crossing is a franchise infamous for its community-based life simulation games with anthropomorphic characters. Developed and published by Nintendo, the first main series Animal Crossing game was released in Japan for Gamecube back in 2001. Whilst various spin-off games have been released, the most recent main series game, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, was released for Nintendo 3DS in 2012. Whilst there are no specific objectives in the games, players are encouraged to participate in activities such as fishing, socializing and errand-running, shopping etc.

Whilst very little is known about the content of Animal Crossing for Switch, it is highly likely that the game will feature notorious fat cat Tom Nook, who starred in the game’s September Nintendo Direct reveal trailer. Additionally, the presence of Isabelle in the Nintendo Direct Super Smash Bros. Ultimate trailer suggests that she could also be making a return.
