Animal Crossing is the fifth installment of the hit simulator series from Nintendo, enabling the player to take on the role of a citizen of a friendly town inhabited by anthropomorphic animals. The latest entry in the series is available only on the Nintendo Switch console.

Mechanics

As in the previous parts of the series, in Animal Crossing on Nintendo Switch the player creates their hero by choosing sex, appearance and outfit, after which they 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 his neighbors, 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 changing seasons or holidays.

Technical aspects

Animal Crossing is characterized by simple, eye-catching super-deformed visuals, characteristic of all games in the series.
