Get first dibs on the most adorable-looking Nintendo Switch at Amazon.ca or Best Buy, because the new Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing: New Horizons Edition is available to pre-order now for $399.99!

Originally announced on January 30, this special edition Nintendo Switch console is inspired by the upcoming Animal Crossing: New Horizons (the game is not included) and features a textured back panel, along with unique pastel blue/green Joy-Con controllers and a matching dock, which is also adorned with Animal Crossing characters Tom Nook and his nephews Timmy and Tommy.

The Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing: New Horizons Edition includes the updated full-sized Nintendo Switch released in August 2019 with improved battery life and for reference, the $399.99 price is the same as a standard Nintendo Switch.

Pre-orders are only available while supplies last and the Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing: New Horizons Edition is scheduled for release on March 13. The console qualifies for free shipping from both Amazon.ca and Best Buy.

      Yep I just got mine through using regular checkout, guess they fixed it.

      Gonna hit up EB in the morning anyways though, rather do it there so I can put trade credit towards it.

      And ultimately, on the chance SDM gets these, I'll get it there.

      The game released on the Wii U (Amiibo Festival) is completely different than the main AC games.

      The Wii U never received a proper Animal Crossing release.

      Heck you talking about- that wasn’t even a real animal crossing game

      The last real game released (3ds one) sold gangbusters

    • If I didn't already have a Switch I would definitely buy this!

      I bought the Switch from SDM with a 20% off just after they announced New Horizons.
      I'm such a huge Animal Crossing fan and definitely looking forward to New Horizons :)

      There hasn't been a real AC game since New Leafs so I'm sure lots of fans are anticipating this release as well!

      Are there any pre-order bonus/specials for the game only?
      US, Europe, and New Zealand gets notepads, pins, keychains, tote bags, etc... but so far I haven't spot anything in Canada.

      Nothing official as of yet. I'm sure EB will end up with whatever Gamestop offers, Best Buy will probably get the lame sticker Best Buy US is offering.

    • I would have expected a Switch Lite though

      The EB Games twitter account said that it does come with a digital code for the game.

      EDIT: I guess only the UK version comes with the game download....

      Yeah I'm a little shocked but ridiculously glad they went with the full Switch. Only reason I'm getting it.
