Animal Crossing: New Horizons is coming… but where do I find it?

How nice would it be, in this difficult time to escape, to be able to take a plane and move to a desert island, where you can start a new life, take a walk outdoors, grow fruit, go fishing and much more? With Animal Crossing: New Horizons, available exclusively for Nintendo Switch starting March 20, all this is possible.

But the question that many will be asking themselves right now is: How can I get my copy of Animal Crossing if the stores are closed due to the COVID-19 health emergency?

It is possible to order it digitally here:

If you have already pre-ordered from GameStop

All information is available on the GameStop website.

For those who live on the islands and have not yet placed the order, the situation is slightly different as, unless the goods are already available on the island itself, deliveries are not guaranteed even for online purchases. However, there are no problems for purchasing the digital version.

GameStop stores are temporarily closed due to the health emergency. What to do?

It is possible to move the deposit already paid to some other game so as not to lose it and make the purchase of Animal Crossing: New Horizons in digital copy again. All information about it is available on the GameStop website.

  Lots of news coming to Animal Crossing

Alternatively, you can safely wait for the reopening of the GameStop stores. The deposit will remain valid for one year.

Other solutions

Lastly, remembering that the movements are allowed only in situations of specific needs (video games unfortunately do not fall into this category)in case you find yourself grocery shopping inside the Auchan and Carrefour hypermarkets it will also be possible to find the game there.
