Animal Crossing Release Date!
The Animal Crossing Release Date leaked early 2019.
Animal Crossing was actually not supposed to be announced in the September Direct. Nintendo was preparing to make promo material for Isabelle’s reveal as a challenger in Smash Bros but they realized that her appearance without any mention of a mainline AC game coming to Switch would receive massive backlash from the AC community.
During the September 2018 Nintendo Direct, live-reactions of AC fans showed us they expected Animal Crossing Switch to be announced along side Isabelle for Smash. The unthinkable happened, and it set everyone's hopes up for the return of Animal Crossing!
