Nintendo hasn’t shown much from Animal Crossing: New Horizons since its extensive trailer during E3 2019. However, just in time for 2020, it debuted a new trailer that provides not only a look at the official cover art, but also the return of a fan favorite.
The trailer is below and is in Japanese, so we’re not sure precisely what Tom Nook says during his presentation to the town’s inhabitants. It does lead to a small bit of gameplay during the trailer, though, with a villager chopping down trees. Also, for the audience viewing the new footage, fans can see Isabelle who’s been in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as of late.
During the closing seconds of the trailer, we also get a glimpse of the official cover art for New Horizons — the Japanese cover art, at least. It features several characters enjoying themselves on a deserted island where the game takes place, including Tom Nook, Isabelle, a pair of Villagers, and a few others. Here’s hoping the U.S. art follows suit.
There’s also a re-confirmation of Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ release date — March 20, 2020.
Hopefully, we’ll see a U.S. version of the trailer soon, so we can get a good idea of what Tom has to say. For the time being, be sure to indulge in the brief but enjoyable footage below.
