Special Edition Gaming Consoles

Nintendo Switch Partners with the Animal Crossing Franchise

— February 11, 2020 — Marketing
Nintendo Switch and the Animal Crossing franchise are expected to release a special edition console on March 13th and the product is highly anticipated. The collaborative console design comes in tandem with the Animal Crossing: New Horizons game, however, the game itself is expected to debut on March 20th -- a few days after the Switch. The playful, exclusive gaming console features a soft pastel color palette and various motifs that are characteristic within the Animal Crossing franchise.

In addition, the collaborators work on designing a special carrying case and a theme-appropriate packaging to "round out this special edition console release." This pre-launch unboxing video creates even more hype around the partnership and shows excited consumers just what they can expect from the Nintendo x Animal Crossing collaboration.
