Animal Crossing New Horizons is tantalizingly close. So, if you’re one of these people who has run out of patience and simply needs to play it now, you’re certainly not alone.
A Tool To Design Your Island
GitHub user generation is seemingly in the same boat as everyone else. So, they decided to build a tool that’ll help you pass the time these last few days a bit more comfortably. The Happy Island Designer will let you plan out the structure of your island ahead of time.
You could have done this with some pen and paper, but this tool has all the icons and designs that Animal Crossing fans are familiar with. The end result here is likely to be more presentable and legible, especially compared to one’s hasty scribbles.
Some Helpful Pointers
Animal Crossing New Horizons’ is going to be even emptier than it usually is at the start, too, so you really have a lot to think about. Figuring out where you want to plant your tent in advance could save you a lot of time and let you jump right into the game when it comes out.
You might want to ensure that Resident Services isn’t too far from it, though. The constant back and forth could get really boring after a while. This tool will also help you decide how and where your island’s going to have rivers.
Animal Crossing New Horizons Tech Specs
Take a look at how much room you have left on your Nintendo Switch, too. The game’s going to take up 6.2 GB of space. That’s not a lot by today’s standards. Still, getting stuck clearing up space at the last minute is quite annoying. The game’s ready to download/install, yet you’re stuck doing some housekeeping.
If you’re a Switch Lite owner and want your friends to jump into the game, here’s how. You simply need to connect a pair of Joycons or a Pro Controller and hand it to them. Simple as that.
Do keep in mind that Animal Crossing New Horizons only allows one island per console. Nintendo is figuring out how they’ll allow backups and save transfers, but it won’t be available at release. Oh, if you happen to have any amiibos, they’ll work with this game, too.
Animal Crossing New Horizons is set to come out on March 20, 2020, on the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite.
