Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a life sim in which the player takes on the role of a customisable character who moves onto a deserted island.

Players are sold a Nook Inc. Deserted Island Getaway Package, although said package only comes with the barest of necessities to survive on the island – a tent, a lamp and a camper bed. Once players have pitched up, they must ‘build a life from the ground up using the natural resources you’ll find on the island’.

Key features of Animal Crossing: New Horizons include:

  • Players start from scratch.
  • Big focus on crafting by finding and harvesting resources.
  • Pop-up on screen map.
  • Nook Miles available through NookPhone, including camera and apps.
  • Accurate Southern Hemisphere seasons.
  • Voice chat.
