Animal Crossing New Horizons Multiplayer

We got a litle bit of Animal Crossing: New Horizons news and footage in this week's Nintendo Direct. Rather than buying basic items and tools, being on a deserted island means that you'll be crafting them. This is done through gathering raw materials accross the island and the help of a little bit of Tom Nook magic.

Resident Services and Nook Miles (TM) were shown off in a little more detail. One of the new tools shown off was a vaulting pole. This tool will allow you to hop over narrow bodies of water without needing a bridge. And of course, weeds now serve a purpose: you can sell them to Tom Nook for some petty cash.

Multiplayer was also shown off once again, this time with a few new details. Up to four players can play together on the same island on a single system. Even more interesting, it seems that eight players can hop online (or locally with 8 systems) and all visit and play on the same island. Nintendo Switch Online is of course required for this feature.

You can check out the full trailer below. It's styled as a Nook Inc. infomercial and rather cute. The game will release next year, exclusively on Nintendo Switch, on March 20, 2020.
