Isabelle is just as excited for Animal Crossing: New Horizons as we are

A short trailer before the March release

The good news? We’re now in the year of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The bad news? It’s still a few months away.

Ahead of New Horizons’ March 20 release date, Nintendo today dropped a new trailer giving players a quick look at the game. The best news? Isabelle is featured heavily in the clip. A whole bunch of other villagers, too.

In the trailer, Tom Nook introduces everyone to the “Deserted Island Getaway Package,” which is where New Horizons will take place — a deserted island. Here’s what it offers:

  • Natural abundance — i.e. fruit!
  • The ability to “build a new life from scratch,” demonstrated by a character cutting down a tree.
  • “An island full of possibilities,” shown by a character creating a pathway around a home and its decorations.

Isabelle is in the audience for the whole thing, and she sure looks excited. Like me!

Animal Crossing: New Horizons will be released on March 20 for Nintendo Switch. It’s expected to have all the stuff we already love about Animal Crossing, like fishing and animal villagers. Character customization, home decoration, and a new crafting system are coming, too.
