Nintendo has finally gives us footage of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, showing a new chapter of the series that seems to be taking place in a more tropical location. As someone who has played Animal Crossing only on handhelds post-GameCube, it’s pretty crazy for me to see the game looking so visually beautiful. And, of course, we get a look at some of the new items and tasks we’ll have access to there on the island.

Sadly, all of the fun of the new trailer does come with one downside: a delay. While Animal Crossing: New Horizons was originally promised for 2019, it’ll now instead arrive on March 20th, 2020. Always better a delayed game than a bad game, though.
