Animal Crossing New leaf has been released more than 5 years ago. Fans of the village simulation game are eagerly waiting for a new title in the franchise. With the exception of Welcome Amiibo, and spin off games like Happy Home Designer and Amiibo Festival, fans didn’t get any new Animal Crossing game or content in many years. There are many reasons we might see Animal Crossing Switch sooner rather than later.
Animal Crossing Plaza was a social experiment released on the Nintendo Wii U. The game was a time limited event, and has since been shut down. Even though it was only supposed last for a few months, Nintendo has put a huge amount of work into creating high resolution art for Animal Crossing Plaza. Every villager, buildings, trees and more have been designed for the social game. It is to question if Nintendo would have gone this far, for a game that was never meant to be sold, or to stick around. These assets were possibly designed and intended to be used for a full Animal Crossing game on the Nintendo Wii U later on. However, the console was discontinued, and a main series Animal Crossing has never seen the light on the system.
Later on Mario Kart 8 was released, with it came a DLC that brought an Animal Crossing themed track. All the high resolution assets seen in the Wii U plaza game – made it into the racing video game. Now the next big step for Nintendo will be to release a new installment of the beloved simulation video game on Nintendo Switch. While Nintendo has been pretty vague about the games future, Reggie, President of Nintendo North America has made some pretty clear hints at an upcoming Animal Crossing Game, outlined in an interview here.
With Mario Kart 8 Deluxe being released on the Nintendo Switch just days ago, we are taking a look at what Animal Crossing Switch could look like. We can’t help but think it would be most adorable, and the best looking game in the franchise. So lets have a look at what Isabelle and friends look like on Nintendos latest hybrid console!
