The Game Developers Conference is happening next month and it takes place from Monday, March 16 to March 20 and the staff has announced that Nintendo will be at the show to present an hour-long session to talk about the development of the next major Switch-exclusive, Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
The session is titled “Creating a New Horizon: Bringing Animal Crossing to Nintendo Switch,” and it will be presented by producer Hisashi Nogami and director Aya Kyogoku. The talk will dive deep into the design fundamentals of the life sim game and the hosts will reveal how the franchise’s ideas have “evolved over time in response to changes in the world around us.”
