Nintendo has announced a new Animal Crossing-themed Switch console will be on sale from 13th March – that’s one week before the launch of Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
The new console, which has already been praised for its fresh and cute look, will be available pre-order soon.
The themed console is the full-sized Switch, which means you can play in handheld mode or on your TV by using your dock. The Joy-con controllers also come with it in a pale mint green and a duck egg blue.
The back is embossed with the Animal Crossing pattern too, which is a nice added feature.

The only downside is the console doesn’t come with the new Animal Crossing: Horizons game on the official Nintendo shop. Game does have a bundle offer you can pre-order though for £329.99.
A new carrying case with the same Animal Crossing-themed design and a screen protector is also being released on 13th March.
