The upcoming life simulation video game is due to be released on Nintendo Switch on March 20, and on Thursday (20.02.20) a Nintendo Direct video showcased some of the features players can expect from the title.

In the 27-minute video, Nintendo displayed new features in the game – which will see players travel to a deserted island – including the ability to change the land around the player with a terraforming tool.

The tool will let players pull weeds and chop down trees, as well as demolish cliffs, create pathways across rivers, and even build stairs and bridges.

‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ will also introduce a new smartphone feature called the NookPhone, which comes complete with a set of apps to allow players to do different things within the game.

There’s an app for the in-game map, and another that collects all of your crafting recipes, as well as a program called Nook Miles, which presents the player with a brand new progression system.

In the original ‘Animal Crossing’, players were incentivised to work on earning money to pay off a debt owed to Tom Nook, but in ‘New Horizons’, progress is made through the Nook Miles app, which is essentially a collection of quests.

Catching bugs and fish, or collecting twigs, gives players a certain number of miles that go toward paying off their travel package for getting to the island, and goals will all be tied to things normally done within the game.

‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ will be released on March 20.
