Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which arrives on March 20, isn’t like most other first-party games on Nintendo Switch. 

Whether it’s Link fighting off moblins, a Pokémon trainer competing for glory or Inklings splattering each other with paint, Nintendo’s other big releases are all about conflict. Animal Crossing, on the other hand, is about building furniture, collecting trinkets, reshaping landscapes and making friends. It’s almost obnoxiously cute — but not nearly as cloying as it could be, thanks to its depth of gameplay.
