The Nintendo Direct on Thursday saw lots of large announcement but none larger than Animal Crossing coming to the Nintendo Switch in 2019. After the reveal of Isabelle as a playable character in the upcoming Smash Brothers the Direct seemed to have ended until it was revealed that Tom Nook was watching the Direct as well. Happy that his friends are having fun, he revealed that he has a responsibility to look after the town while everyone is busy. We then were greeted with confirmation of a 2019 release, shocking the entire Animal Crossing fanbase.

Unfortunately no details have been given just yet. Animal Crossing will be coming to the Nintendo Switch in 2019.
