Animal Crossing Switch Release Date – When Will It Launch?

Animal Crossing Switch

Nintendo has already released many of its heavy hitters on its very successful Switch console so far, but there are still some big names that haven’t made their debut yet. One such game is Animal Crossing, which was revealed to be launching sometime in 2019 some time ago. However, when can we expect it to release? That’s what we’ll cover here.

It has been quite sometime since we’ve gotten a mainline Animal Crossing game, with the last one being 2013’s New Leaf on 3DS. The Wii U never got a main installment, instead getting a spin-off. It looks like Nintendo has instead been biding their time and making the next installment the best it can possibly be, while also releasing it on a console where it will actually sell. The latest release in the series is mobile game called Pocket Camp, which launched in November 2017 for iOS and Android devices.

The big question right now is figuring out where the company will decide to to place it in their release schedule, as they have plenty of big names slated for the end of the year. These include the likes of Pokemon Sword and Shield, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening remake, Bayonetta 3 and Luigi’s Mansion 3. None of those games have specific release dates at this point, though we can get an idea based on when others are likely to release.

Considering that Luigi’s Mansion 3 is likely to get an October release, and the Pokemon games a late November release, it’s possible we could see an early September release for Animal Crossing. This would line up with some leaks that have suggested that the game is going to launch in September, which definitely makes sense considering the other games set to release this year.

Of course, this is all speculation and needs to be taken with a grain of salt. We’re still waiting on the official word from Nintendo regarding Animal Crossing Switch’s release date, which will likely be coming sometime around E3 2019 in June. We’ll keep you updated as more information comes in.

Critics and fans alike went crazy for Amazon’s take on the famous role-playing game series Fallout. There were a lot of nominations for 16 Emmy awards, including Best Actor and Outstanding Drama Series. The show was able to reach audiences outside of gamers and got a lot of attention from the industry.

Eurogamer has been keeping track, and now that all the votes are in, Fallout is tied for fifth place with 23 nominations for the 76th Emmy Awards, which are put on by the US Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. With 25, The Bear has the most nominations, followed by True Detective: Night Country with 23, and Shogun with 19.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Walton Goggins is up for Best Actor for his performance as The Ghoul. Although games will always be our first choice, it’s great that adaptations of games don’t have to be awful, and we can’t wait for the next season of the shows.

Are you surprised by how well Amazon’s version of Fallout has done in the mainstream? Is the curse of movies based on video games finally over? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.
