Animal Crossing: New Horizons @ Nintendo Live 2019

As previously reported, Nintendo Live 2019 would be happening on October 13th and 14th, and Day 1 of Nintendo Live went off with a bang, and whilst we didn't get any new information on New Horizons, we did get a look at their incredibly cute Animal Crossing booth. They even held an hour long Splatoon concert, with a surprise appearance by K.K. Slider himself!

As mentioned, most of what we got was an Animal Crossing themed booth, but as previously reported many characters would be making appearances for photo opportunities, including Tom Nook, Timmy, Tommy K.K. Slider, and Isabelle. Though Isabelle's future in New Horizons has been left unclear, this certainly seems to imply she'll still be a big presence in the game.

The tour starts off with a video presentation from Tom Nook, and then allows attendees to freely view the booth, to see many Animal Crossing themed displays to imitate island life, before finally taking photos with the previously mentioned characters, depending on the time of day. According to gamewatch, the booth was very popular, and had roughly a 100 minute wait time. After completing the tour, you can enter a special lottery for the chance to win a special Animal Crossing themed towel. Though if you didn't win anything in the lottery, attendees still received some tissues, and a business card from Tom Nook, ouch! Talk about adding insult to injury. Scanning the QR code on either of these will take you to the newly created Tom Nook Development website, which even has a cute little 4 frame manga.

Nintendo Live 2019 once again clarified Animal Crossing New Horizons would be releasing on March 20th, 2020. You can view the articles as well as more pictures via the events in the tweets below.
