Brad Bennett for MobileSyrup:

The latest iteration of Animal Crossing brilliantly holds onto the zen-like charm that propelled the series to success in 2001, while expertly packing in modern game elements to freshen up the 19-years-old series.

I expected the new Animal Crossing to review positively, not only because it’s Nintendo but because of the current situation around the world. It sounds like this new game is going to be a welcome escape for many from the tough situation we’re all in right now.

I’ve got my copy pre-ordered. I’m hopeful it’ll be here in time for launch.
