I’ve already spent all my pocket money on a limited-edition Pokmon Switch, but if I could, I would almost certainly splash out on the new Animal Crossing console.
Last night Nintendo unveiled the new Nintendo Switch bundle – which is themed around the upcoming Animal Crossing: New Horizons – and it’s fair to say the internet has fallen in love. It’s got an island full of Nooks on the dock, a cute pattern on the rear of the Switch, and soft pastel-coloured joy-cons with white backs. Oh, and a download code for New Horizons is included.
If that’s not enough for you, an additional Animal Crossing-themed carrying case and screen protector set is also being released, which has some lovely leaves emblazoned on it.
It’s fair to say this will be a popular edition, so you’ll probably need to get in early when both the console bundle and the case set become available in stores on 20th March (that’s launch day for Animal Crossing: New Horizons). In the UK the console is already listed for 319 via Nintendo’s official store or 329.99 via Game, while in the US it’ll cost $299.99 (228) – although that version is coming out a little earlier, and the New Horizons download code is not included in the bundle.
Until then, I’ll just be searching every nook and cranny for spare change to get that case.
