In conjunction with the launch of Animal Crossing: New Horizons game on the Switch, Nintendo is launching a limited edition Animal Crossing themed console. And it looks beautiful.
It comes with a pair of cool looking mint green and blue Joy-Cons.
The console’s dock sports a distinct design of Tom Nook on a deserted island accompanied by his nephews, Timmy and Tommy. If I’m not mistaken, this is the first time Nintendo release a dock that is not the traditional black colour.
The Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing: New Horizons Limited Edition console will be available from 13 March 2020. Animal Crossing: New Horizons will be released on 20 March 2020.

Microsoft just announced their next generation gaming console at The Game Award 2019. Previously known as Project Scarlett, the next Microsoft console will be named Xbox Series X.
The Xbox Series X is backward compatible with thousands of games from previous generation Xbox. All Xbox One gaming accessories will also be compatible. On top of that, Xbox Game Pass will also be available on Xbox Series X during launch.
Microsoft also unveiled a trailer for the Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, a sequel to the award-winning Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice from Ninja Theory. The game is being built to leverage the full power of Xbox Series X.
One of the biggest news from Nintendo at this year’s E3 is that they are making a sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Oh, did I mentioned that I just bought a Nintendo Switch last month? Yes, I know I’m late to the game but better late then never. And I’ve been playing Breath of the Wild non-stop. To the extend that I don’t have time to try out other great games on the Switch.
From the look of the announcement, I think we are still several years away from the actual launch date. I’m guessing at least 2 years. Can’t wait!
