Yeah, I love the colors butttt I dunno about the docking station. The nooks make sense though since they own the island haha

it's soooo pretty. I'm gonna ask my family to all split the cost and buy me this for my birthday. it matches the colour of my bedroom too which is a nice bonus

I'm pretty sure the game is NOT included with this though, which is kind of a bummer. at least I still have enough gift card money from last birthday to afford the game, so I'm planning to transfer my main nintendo account over to this one when it comes out

I think that it looks nice, and the colourway is really fitting - it's bright and fresh without looking like a neon-coloured tropical island trope. Congratulations to everybody who was hoping for a standard-model tie-in Switch for this game - I hope that you guys will share pictures when you get one!

I'm legitimately surprised that there isn't a Switch Lite as well, though, especially considering that the Switch Lite's sales demographics skew heavily in the same direction that Animal Crossing's tend to.

amylase - Because, whether people like it or not, Tom Nook is the face of the series, and he always has been. Him fronting ACNH appears to be a response to how people felt about Isabelle being pushed so hard to "replace" Tom Nook, and other long-time faces like K.K. Slider and Mr. Resetti, for so many years.

EDIT: Hah, what amazing timing, Chiyoko!

Woohoo!!!!  Just pre-ordered the Switch from Target!  I love it and I’m so excited!  I love the case too- I can’t see where we can order that yet though.

okay for any other canadians in the thread, turns out target does ship to canada, but free shipping isn't available for international orders.

still keeping an eye out for canadian listings though. I hope the usual places like bestbuy, EBgames, walmart and amazon will have it later, since sometimes they can be slow to update their canadian sites. I'd like to avoid paying international shipping if I can

Do we know if we will be able to just get the joy cons?


Actually I found that Japan will sell them separately.   https://mobile.twitter.com/Nintendeal/status/1223061773198082048?s=07&fbclid=IwAR2egZZUz9mXXAGpFexvuINANNxsWKdFoihCb2FOVZf1vqB81XGHh8iPpG0
Hopefully they will sell them in North America, or I’ll have to import them!

^tyvm for that! hopefully they also report on canada bc a lot of times we get lumped in with US and assumed we have the same purchasing options.

also update to what I said before, looks like target doesn't offer international shipping for this switch, so still waiting on an option that doesn't require a 6 hour round trip to pick it up

(I'm sure canadian retailers will update their sites soon enough, I'm just impatient )

I think its really cute and if I didnt have two switches already I'd get it.
However in Japan they're selling the controllers separate, so you may find they might do that here too in the west if theres demand.

I have been waiting for years for a new AC themed Nintendo console!!! When I found out I immediately  preordered it. Nintendo knows too well how to get my money.   I’m just going to sell my old switch when I get the AC one.

Of course they did.  I just don't have the patience or desire to wait for a 'themed' console to show up for a certain game, nor do I need to buy another of the same console...

Glad I waited.  Gunna get the consol for sure.  If they don't have a themed Switch lite by release, I'll grab a regular lite for a 2nd town and hopefully they'll release a themed lite shortly after for a 3rd town.. Cause that's how I roll..

Nintendo Korea has posted lots of lovely high-resolution images of the console, the dock, the Joy-Cons, and even the uniquely-coloured Joy-Con wrist-straps that are included! They also show the packaging for the bundle, the game, and the Switch and Switch Lite cases.

Also, the UK/EU version of the bundle has been confirmed to include a download-code for the game.

This is very exciting news!  I heard about the news roughly three hours after release and pre-ordered immediately.  I'm a part of those individuals that's been waiting for Animal Crossing to be released for the Switch before buying one, but also holding out hope Nintendo would release a themed one before buying a regular one.  I was getting a little anxious as time went on, especially with Amazon back-ordering their Switch stock.

The backing design is simply gorgeous.  It looks like there's little islands in between each other.  A small sailboat is in the waters with shark and whale fins.  It's hard to say if this is a feature of the game; sailing to and from islands, or if it's simply a beautiful design based around islands and sailboats because we'll live on an island this time around.

All very exciting!  When this game releases I'm falling off the grid.

I hollered so much that my hubs came running to see if I was alright. When I showed him, he said we'll get it for me, and today, I just talked my mom into giving me 50 of what she owes me, so I could toss that onto my preorder, which i did a bit ago :3

so according to the official canadian EBgames twitter account, the listing will go live tonight at midnight (EST) and there will be very limited quantities.

The Animal Crossing Nintendo Switch System is live for preorder tonight at midnight! With tomorrow morning in-store! It will be VERY LIMITED and tightly allocated, with a limit of one per customer, per family. Coming March 13! The case will also be available for preorder!

I've seen a whole bunch of other countries that have their preorders up already and I haven't heard much about quantities being super limited. I wonder why canada seems to be different

I'm thinking I might just buy this myself instead of asking my family to split the cost on it for a birthday present bc I don't want to risk being too slow and not getting it

okay double post and my last post panicking about where to buy it in canada (I just bought it so I can relax now lol ), but bestbuy canada has it available, and like I said above, EB games will have it at midnight. walmart canada's twitter seems to be implying that it'll be available there later as well bc they retweeted nintendo canada's post about it

Glad you got it! I get to hopefully finish off my pre-order monday, as well as get myself a lite to tide me over until this one comes out, as I have given my now old one to my 6yo, and we sold her old one towards my nh variant lol.

not sure if anyone in this thread has been interested in my canada updates, but I'm sure glad I didn't wait any longer than I did to confirm my preorder, since both EBgames and bestbuy are sold out! EBgames didn't even have it up for a full hour!

the EBgames twitter says there is a separate inventory available for in-store preorders, so canadians will still have a chance in the morning. still no word on anything from walmart or amazon.

I am glad I waited to get a Switch. I was thinking that it would have been a bad choice on my part yet I was thankfully proven wrong. I preordered mine from BestBuy.

I'm not getting this Switch, but what annoys me more is that after I bought an original Switch in November 2018, they made the remodel that has longer battery life.

The New Horizons switch is cool and all, but it functions exactly the same, just with a different look. I can live without that.

But the battery life... I really could use that when I'm in handheld mode making Mario Maker levels. Instead of only getting like maybe 2 hours of level creation time if I'm lucky.
