About The Game

Animal Crossing New Horizons is the most recent installment in the much-loved franchise. The new addition to the series brings plenty of new villagers to meet. Work hard to decorate your island with a plethora of crafted and collected furniture items. Why not sell turnips and other items to help pay off your debt to Tom Nook? Additionally, you can head out to the museum – this is where you can donate fossils, insects, and fish to Blathers.

There’s always something to do in Animal Crossing New Horizons. Hop onto the game to do a bit of light decorating, or head out to catch some bugs. Create beautiful island areas inspired by a variety of aesthetics, and fill your home with your favourite items. Visit your friends’ islands, or invite them to your own – spend the day fishing together, or take part in a seasonal event.
