While the hype behind the upcoming release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons is larger than life, creating ripples of excitement all over the world from fans, the very concept of the game itself doesn’t bring loud, celebratory music and cheering — no, it creates a sense of calm and serenity. And Nintendo knows it.
The company’s newest Switch My Way commercial is bringing the handheld and New Horizons together by pairing up a mother and daughter who very much adore the game. The ad opens by introducing us — the audience — to familiar gameplay with the New Horizons’ gentle theme music, and it shows the genuine delight it can bring to families through a small series of endearing scenes.
There’s something extra special about a game that can bring family and friends together by simple acts of bug catching and running around on pretty islands surrounded by friendly animals.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons releases on March 20th for Nintendo Switch. You can still pre-order your copy on Amazon today!
