Nintendo may release a New Animal Crossing game in 2024, according to rumors. Nintendo usually releases Animal Crossing games three to four years apart, except for New Leaf and New Horizons, which were released eight years apart. Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer and Pocket Camp were launched on Nintendo 3DS in 2015 and 2017, respectively.
Nintendo may develop Switch 2 hardware to compete with the PlayStation 5’s visuals, according to leaks. It may sport an 8-inch LED screen and a new camera. The Switch 2 is slated to launch in late 2024 or early 2025 with big games like a Final Fantasy 7 remake. Another Animal Crossing game might be reserved until launch since it would be clever marketing for Nintendo given New Horizons’ popularity.
