Animal Crossing: New Horizons has this way of digging into your life and eating away at every ounce of time you have to give, all while making you feel like only seconds have gone by since you started searching for a new species on the island. Nintendo has taken their time, giving New Horizons a fantastic level of polish, not only matching the fanbase’s expectations, but excelling them. While this addictive game could end up taking control of your entire life, I can definitely guarantee that it is worth every second put into it.
Anyone who knows of the Animal Crossing franchise will immediately feel at home. It’s business as usual, except for the fact that it is now a lovechild between a passive life sim and Minecraft, giving it a layer of depth that really adds to the game and turning it into something so much more.
Gone is the traditional town setting, with the game giving us a deserted island, New Horizons takes you right at the frontier of nature. All you have to your name is a tent, a few gifted furniture items, and the debt you managed to rack up getting there in the first place. Not to worry, though, there are plenty of ways for you to pay back this debt. It’s your duty to take the little you are giving and eventually create a thriving community, filled to the brim with individuals who share your ideals.
Your main priorities rotate between collecting, bug and fossil hunting, fishing, and building. This all happens to allow you to progress between bigger homes for you and your animal neighbours. This time Nintendo added a lot of crafting in the mix, eventually allowing you to change your entire landscape through terraforming.
