Animal Crossing

One of the Nintendo Switch games that fans are eagerly hoping will be announced soon is Animal Crossing– a brand new installment in Nintendo’s beloved life sim series. The last game in the series was New Leaf, which launched on the 3DS all the way back in 2012- so it’s been some time since we’ve seen a new game in the franchise, though we have seen multiple spin offs since, including a new mobile game.

Now, a new Animal Crossing trademark filing filed by Nintendo in Japan (via Japanese Nintendo) seems to indicate that a Switch version of the game may be incoming- the filing specifies “software for a home video game system, portable system, and smartphone devices”- but there is no current home console Animal Crossing game, and there is no Nintendo home console on the market other than the Switch. Is a Switch announcement incoming?

For now, Animal Crossing fans can check out New Leaf on 3DS, or Pocket Camp on iOS and Android smartphones.
