The Nintendo of America Twitter account has announced that there will be a live-streamed Direct airing later this week. It will feature the upcoming game Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
The Direct will take place on Feb. 20 at 9 a.m. EST, and it will last for approximately 25 minutes. It will give an in-depth look at Nook Inc.’s Deserted Island Getaway Package, which is the in-game reason for the player character to build his or her home on Tom Nook’s island.
Fans of the Animal Crossing series have been hungry for more news ever since the last trailer aired in the form of a commercial back in early January. Since then, the only news has been the announcement of an Animal Crossing themed Nintendo Switch console, which is set to release on March 13.
There’s still a lot that we don’t know about the upcoming Animal Crossing: New Horizons, so it will be interesting to see what Nintendo plans to reveal in the Direct. As we have seen in the past, a lot of information can be packed into a 25-minute spotlight, especially when it focuses on a single game.
If you are thinking about getting the game, you should know that Target is offering a pre-order bonus in the form of an adorable Animal Crossing themed journal. You can also visit Nintendo’s website if you would like to learn more about the game.
