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.
A new carrying case with the same Animal Crossing-themed design and a screen protector is also being released on 13th March.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons was set to be released last year, but Nintendo announced at E3 2019 that it would be delayed until 20th March, 2020. You can pre-order it from Amazon for £44.99 or Game for £49.99 (it comes with a tote bag).
