Last year, Animal Crossing New Horizons was all the rage. I was envious as I adored Animal Crossing New Leaf on my 3DS. One of the highlights of my sophomore year of college was playing New Leaf on campus in between classes. As such, I had my eye on purchasing a Switch, but I never ended up committing to the purchase. Recently, my work had a contest with a prize of accruing Amazon gift cards. Now felt like the perfect time to purchase the Nintendo Switch with my remaining Amazon gift cards.
I purchased the Animal Crossing New Horizons Switch. I could have gotten the regular Switch for a better price, however, part of the reason I was buying the Switch in the first place was to play Animal Crossing New Horizons, so I felt like it was fitting to pay the extra for this version. My Switch arrived on Thursday, but I didn’t want to play it until the weekend. I named my island MaplePeaks because I wanted a generic name, so I could change the theme as I see fit. I’m still new to the game, so I don’t want to show off my island just yet.
Besides Animal Crossing, my fiance wants to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Don’t hate me, but I’m not a big fan of the Zelda franchise, so I’m glad my fiance will play for the both of us. Purchasing the Switch ended up being a great idea for both me and my fiance to play games we don’t have any other way to play.
While I may be late to the Animal Crossing New Horizons party, please leave your friend code down below, so I can visit your island!
