For the first time in the series’ history, Animal Crossing fans can play within the southern hemisphere for the first time. Revealed during the Nintendo Treehouse stream after the Nintendo E3 Direct, players will be able to select whether they want to play in the northern or southern hemispheres – so they can match the seasons to where they live. So, if you’re playing in Australia or New Zealand, for example, you can now set the seasons to match your current lifestyle. A great move in our books.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons will launch for the Nintendo Switch on March 20th 2020 – delayed from its previous 2019 release date.
