    I’m not sure who was more excited for this release: me or my 9 year old!The gameplay here is pretty straight forward. You’re on an island, and it’s your job to build and populate it how you see fit. The level of detail and the amount of things that you can do is pretty staggering. And it’s all done with a level or adorable that is infectious, which given the times we find ourselves, is a much needed distraction.All of the content is rated E for Everyone, and you won’t find anything offensive or objectionable in the game.The controls are mostly very easy to use and quick to learn, even for kids.The short version is that you combine resource gathering and management, with crafting new items, building homes, and customizing every detail of your community. From building waterfalls, to going fishing, and decorating the interior of your house. There’s a lot of detail in all of these things, and you’re free to create at will.One of our favorite details is the day/night cycle which in sync’d the to Switch’s internal clock. So it’s morning in-game, when it’s morning in your timezone. It’s dark when it’s dark outside for you… you get the idea. It’s just a nice touch in-game.You can also play online with friends, allowing others to enter your town and send them messages in-game. Likewise you can visit a friend’s island remotely, or in-person through local multiplayer.Highly recommended!

    This game is great. I have no idea why people are complaining in the reviews when every single game in the AC series has had this type of gameplay. I don’t even see how they can physically complain about anything. No one here is coming up with suggestions/specific flaws. You’re all literally just complaining about the actual entire concept of the game. The game has multi-player, but that really is meant to shine online via multiple consoles.

    I received an empty game case without the game cartridge. When it arrived the plastic wrap around the case was broken on the side. I thought nothing of it until I opened the case to find nothing inside. I bought the digital version because I’ve been waiting for a year to play the game and I love everything about it. However, I will only be refunded $10 for my $60 purchase. This is the first time I have ever been in this predicament. If you want Animal Crossing just get the digital copy and safe yourself the hassle. I’m not disappointed with the game at all, just the distributor.***UPDATE***: My initial one star review has been revised to a five star review. After returning the case I was given a full refund. I would still be cautious about ordering given that my order arrived without the game cartridge, but I’m grateful to have recieved a full refund, and thoroughly enjoy the digital version of the game. I’d give the game itself 10 stars if I could!

    After having played I changed my mind. This game is really incredible and me and my wife are playing together. I wish I could play an island of my own, but there’s enough space for the both of us. Just make sure the person to play the most is the main character, and you’re good!

    I purchased this as an anniversary gift for my fiancee, she is obsessed with Animal Crossing and she has been anticipating this release ever since it was announced. The only complaint we have had on this product is due to the Coronavirus and how it delayed its arrival an extra day after release. The entire point of preordering is insuring that we have it on the day it comes out, but because of the virus that did not happen. It was only a day late, and it was no big deal to me but she could not curb her disappointment. However, it was remedied very quickly and they only took an extra day to get it to us. I am impressed.The game is exactly what you would expect from Animal Crossing, only enhanced. It is better, the entire town can be customized to your imagination with few limitations. Roads can be paved, houses and bridges can be built, all of which are subject to where you place them. You are still in debt to a Raccoon but that is just part of the experience, and very expected by now from fans of the game. She absolutely loves the game, and I am thankful because her happiness is also mine. Thank you Nintendo and thank you Amazon for the quick delivery despite our state of emergency.
