Anyone here pre-ordering Animal Crossing New Horizon?

Unless for it's a deal, then I don't see the need for pre-ordering. I'll be picking it up Day 1 of course, I'm so ready to get back into AC!

Yep, hoping I get as into it as I did Wild Worlds. New Leaf was fine but I didn't like it as much, only put about 24 hours into New Leaf.

That's interesting, at least I've not heard this sentiment before. What is it that makes you prefer Wild World?

TBH it's probably more to do with me than the game. After all I was only like 10 years old when I got Wild World and it was my first AC game and I just had more time to enjoy it and less other things I had to worry about.

Though I don't like any of the new characters in New Leaf, (Reese, Isabelle, Cyrus etc) I also would have preferred Nook to run the general store still, but I couldn't tell you why.

I guess Wild World was my first AC game and I loved it, while New Leaf just didn't improve the game enough for me to care that much about it.

Because you're the submissive type, rather be Nook's slave than have Isabelle as your slave. :L

I never payed it much attention but now that you mention it you're right, Nook did get the shaft in that game. New Horizons has rectified this, putting him back in the main town with Isabelle having yet to be seen ingame. We know she'll be there of course, just not the central character anymore.

So far at least the game doesn't appear to be a huge step up from New Leaf. We'll get even further control of our town what with us having to build it from scratch, more customization with furniture outside being a thing, and there's now local multiplayer, but otherwise it will be more of the same. There's crafting and resources now but hard to say if that will be much of a positive. I'm hoping the next showing of the game in an upcoming direct will highlight what new things can be done in this game that you couldn't before.

I just hope Isabelle's in it. ^^



Some days I just blow up.

Animal Crossing gonna be a digital preorder for me.
Makes it way more convenient to just start it up anytime.

I prefer physical ones. It's just more satisfying.

Is it possible to get a New Horizons direct and a general one before the game launches? I realize Animal Crossing has had specific directs before so it would certainly make sense for them to do so again, but we also need a general direct which at this point would probably come in February or March. Looking to the past, Splatoon 2 had a direct in it's release month with a general direct the month prior (E3 but eh still countin it). I could see similar with ACNH, but Splatoon 2 is the only case of this. Every other game specific direct for Switch was a full month prior to release, and/or there wasn't a general direct the month beforehand (ARMS is the only one to follow a general direct).

Best case scenario: General Direct early February, Animal Crossing Direct early March. I fear we'll only get one though, and worse still it could be just the ACNH direct.



With the new Smash Direct and them simply pushing TMS Encore on social medias, I think it'd be fair to assume the next general Direct will announced during one of the 2 weeks of February by looking at past trends.
