The latest entry in Nintendo’s Animal Crossing franchise, formerly known simply as Animal Crossing 2019, got a trailer in Nintendo’s E3 Presentation with the title reveal: Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The trailer also confirmed a delayed release date of March 2020.
The trailer featured the player character arriving to an island setting, pitching a tent, and building a campsite by chopping lumber and building a campfire. Though you are building your own campsite, the trailer showed animal villagers and other human characters on the island. This could be a hint at multiplayer functionality to go alongside the series signature mechanics of animal villagers moving in and out of your town–or int his case–island. You can watch the full trailer and explanation behind the delayed release shown at the presentation here:
