Developed and published by Nintendo and created by Katsuya Eguchi and Hisashi Nogami, Animal Crossing is set in an animal populated town where you live your everyday life in real-time. As part of the thriving village community you can make friends with residents, fish in the sea and decorate your homes. Using the internal clock of the Nintendo GameCube, all events in the game happen at the same time as the real world. So as dawn breaks across Europe, the sun also begins to shine in Animal Crossing and when the stars come out, it’s bedtime for all your virtual friends!

Animal Crossing: New Horizons on Switch allows players to create custom clothes and share them with others online. There are multiple ways to share the pieces you create, and there’s many ways to make custom gear for folks.
