Animal Crossing: New Horizons Down To $50 On Amazon In Rare Online Discount

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is only a few days away, but Amazon has decided to give us all a bit of a shock by discounting the first-party Nintendo Switch game. Animal Crossing: New Horizons is currently $49.94 on Amazon right now, so if you want to get the game this Friday at a discount, you’ll want to pre-order it now.

Thankfully, those who’ve already pre-ordered Animal Crossing: New Horizons won’t have to worry about doing anything. Amazon pre-orders carry the company’s price guarantee, which means you’ll get the item’s lowest price between the time you order and the time it ships.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons releases for Nintendo Switch on March 20. In GameSpot’s Animal Crossing: New Horizons review-in-progress, reviews editor Kallie Plagge called it a beautiful game with cute villagers, though she worries the pace is a little too slow.

“New Horizons certainly has a slower pace than other Animal Crossing games, partially because you have to work to get things up and running on the island at the start,” she wrote. “And while I’m impatient to discover what upgrades might be coming my way (and I need to mess around with Island Designer more), I still feel as though I’ve done a lot on my island. I’ve crafted tons of furniture, upgraded my house seven times, picked thousands of weeds, and done far too many drastic outfit changes. I’m as excited to see what random events await me each morning as I am to decorate my island and make it my own, and that’s sure to keep me coming back for the foreseeable future.”

Of course, GameSpot will keep you updated as we continue to play the game and complete our review. In the meantime, check out our Animal Crossing: New Horizons pre-order guide and see what goodies are still available.
