Animal Crossing is the fifth installment of the hit series of Nintendo simulators, allowing the player to play the role of the inhabitant of a friendly town inhabited by anthropomorphic animals. The latest part of the series is available only on the Nintendo Switch console.


As in the previous parts of the series, so in Animal Crossing on the Nintendo Switch the player creates his hero by choosing the sex of appearance and outfit, after which he moves into a village inhabited by anthropomorphic animals. The game does not set a specific goal for the participant of the game, but instead allows them to enjoy participating in the life of the virtual community. The first step towards assimilation is to buy a house that can be renovated and supplemented with new, more and more beautiful elements of equipment. In addition, the player can engage in a variety of activities, such as catching insects, helping town dwellers, making new acquaintances, and finally managing some aspects of local community life. A characteristic feature of all parts of the series is that the time in the game coincides with the time on the console clock. In other words, the life of the village's inhabitants flows regardless of the player's actions, and the fun is diversified by the changing seasons or holidays.

Technical issues
