With Animal Crossing: New Horizons on the… horizon, Nintendo have announced a matching Switch console for fans to fall in love with.

March is looking kind of dry in terms of gaming, with a number of titles initially planned to launch that month being delayed.

For some, though, this just means more time to play Animal Crossing: New Horizons. And as if fans weren’t excited enough, Nintendo has announced a matching Switch console to tempt them with.

The console is being sold as part of a bundle with a download code for New Horizons, and features ocean-coloured Joy-Cons, an Animal Crossing pattern on the back, and a dock with a lovely picture of Tom Nook and his sons/nephews (it’s still unclear), Timmy and Tommy.

Judging by the reactions on social media, it’s clearly already very popular, with a number of people begging Nintendo to release the Joy-Cons separately and some even considering selling their Switches and buying this one as a replacement.

If you’ve fallen in love with it as well, then you’d best start saving, as it won’t be available until the same day New Horizons comes out. Pre-orders have already been made available on Game’s website, and it is being sold at £329.99.

In addition, a new carrying case and screen protector will be released on the same day, just so you can further let people know that you really love Animal Crossing.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons releases on Switch on 20 March.
