Live life at your own pace as you garden, fish, decorate, hunt for bugs and fossils, get to know the animal residents, and more in Animal Crossing: New Horizons for the Nintendo Switch.
Welcome! Nook Inc. invites you to create your personal island paradise on a deserted island brimming with possibility!
If the hustle and bustle of modern life’s got you down, Tom Nook has a new business venture up his sleeve that he knows you’ll adore... The Nook Inc. Deserted Island Getaway Package!
Sure, you’ve crossed paths with colorful characters near and far. Had a grand time as one of the 'City Folk'. May’ve even turned over a 'New Leaf' and dedicated yourself to public service! But deep down, isn’t there a part of you that longs for... freedom? Then perhaps a long walk on the beach of a deserted island, where a rich wealth of untouched nature awaits, is just what the doctor ordered!
Peaceful creativity and charm await as you roll up your sleeves and make your new life whatever you want it to be. Collect resources and craft everything from creature comforts to handy tools. Embrace your green thumb as you interact with flowers and Trees in New ways. Set up a homestead where the rules of what goes indoors and out no longer apply.
Each Day Brings New Discoveries
Live life at your own pace as you garden, fish, decorate, hunt for bugs and fossils, get to know the animal residents, and more. The time of day and seasons match real life, so something is happening on your island whether you’re there or not.
Fishing and catching insects are two of the most popular activities on the island. Life on your island passes in real time, so you can find different critters to catch depending on the time of day and the season.
Where am I Going to Put All the Things I Collect?
Please do consider donating them to the museum! Blathers will accept new species of bugs and fish and analyze any fossils you dig up. He is exceedingly interested in the ecosystem of the island!
Give Your Island a Personal Touch
Customize your community at your own pace with greenery, furniture, and decorative items you can place anywhere you want—inside and outside! You can use what you craft at Tom Nook’s workbench to decorate your island paradise.
Planting flowers makes your island more beautiful, so…grow wild! Water your garden plot until your plants bloom, then harvest or cross-pollinate them. You may grow a rare color! Decorate your hair with a garland of your favorite flowers. Don’t worry—they’ll grow back!
Your island has its own specialty fruit growing from the trees, but you can plant new varieties of fruit from other islands. Either plant a piece of fruit or dig up a sapling and carry it in your pocket until you find the perfect spot to plant it.
Deep Pockets for Better Collecting
As you explore, you can fill your pockets with items you find along the way and to carry necessities like your fishing pole, net, shovel, and pole. A pole makes it easy to quickly cross rivers.
Manage Day-to-day Activities on your NookPhone
Your NookPhone is a handy, in-game device that keeps track of daily goals, insects and fish you’ve collected, DIY recipes you’ve learned, and Nook Miles you’ve earned. Earn Nook Miles through special activities or as you go about your daily island routine. You can use your Miles to access new recipes, bigger pockets, and more!
