What is the Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing Edition

The limited edition Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing Edition was launched in March to commemorate the launch of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The back of the console features designs from the popular game, whereas the included dock is the main attraction with an illustration of Tom Nook and the Nooklings, Timmy and Tommy. The trio are illustrated on a tiny island of their own.

The console's Joy-Cons are also finished in pastel shades of green and blue complete with bespoke wrist straps that match the console's color scheme. The U.S. version of the console doesn't include the game. However, the U.K. version includes a code that lets you download the game for free.
