Summary (IA Generated)

If you"ve ever played Animal Crossing, you know that you really have to take everything a day at a time–and in the beginning of the game, you have to be especially patient as the basics of your town open up to you.

I recently played the first half hour or so of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and as I expected, not much technically happened in that time. But it was more than enough to set the tone for Tom Nook"s island getaway, and it also assuaged some of my concerns about changes to the series formula for its debut on Nintendo Switch.From the very beginning, there"s already more freedom to customize than in any previous Animal Crossing game. This is the first main game in the series that lets you select a skin tone–in the past you had to "tan" by standing outside in the sun if you wanted to be anything besides pale–and on top of that, it"s also the first one that gives you a character creation menu instead of having you take a quiz to determine your appearance. You can pick out your hairstyle and color, eye shape and color, nose and mouth types, and even cheek color before you begin, and you can always change your look later, too.

This is where gathering resources for crafting comes in; you need to get some tree branches for a campfire and some fruit for a tropical drink, which requires just a quick walk around the island.Admittedly, I was nervous when New Horizons was first announced, since I didn"t care for Pocket Camp much and was worried that crafting meant the series was moving too far in that direction. But it"s clear even from the short time I played that crafting is really just another layer to the resource-gathering you"re already doing in Animal Crossing.

One of the best things about Animal Crossing is the sense of friendship and community you build in your new home, and I wasn"t sure how you could get that in a "deserted" place.

And now that I"ve gotten to really see the potential in a deserted island getaway, I can"t wait to start my own island.Animal Crossing: New Horizons launches for Nintendo Switch on March 20.
