Official Description

If the hustle and bustle of modern life’s got you down, Tom Nook has a new business venture up his sleeve that he knows you’ll adore: the Nook Inc. Deserted Island Getaway Package! Sure, you’ve crossed paths with colorful characters near and far. Had a grand time as one of the city folk. May’ve even turned over a new leaf and dedicated yourself to public service! But deep down, isn’t there a part of you that longs for…freedom? Then perhaps a long walk on the beach of a deserted island, where a rich wealth of untouched nature awaits, is just what the doctor ordered! Peaceful creativity and charm await as you roll up your sleeves and make your new life whatever you want it to be. Collect resources and craft everything from creature comforts to handy tools. Embrace your green thumb as you interact with flowers and trees in new ways. Set up a homestead where the rules of what goes indoors and out no longer apply. Make friends with new arrivals, enjoy the seasons, pole-vault across rivers as you explore, and more! This new addition to the Animal Crossing series launches March 20, 2020, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch system. Features

Customize your character and home, and decorate the landscape (with furniture, if you like!), as you create your very own island paradise. Experience a robust new crafting system—collect materials to construct everything from furniture to tools! Enjoy a variety of relaxing activities like gardening, fishing, decorating, interacting with charming NPCs, and more, as classic Animal Crossing experiences come to life in fun new ways within the deserted-island setting.

Great game!

The Good
Honestly the game is really good with all of the new features such as terraforming.

The Bad
It can get boring at time since the events do repeat themselves.

The Bottom Line
Overall a great game and you can really tell that the developers care about the fandom and include the feedback.

The game's release was delayed from a 2019 release to March 20th 2020.

Mr Resetti

Mr Resetti re-appears from previous games, but he no longer has the role of appearing outside the player's house when they don't save, thanks to the game's auto-save feature. Instead, he now has the role of an emergency operator for the game's rescue feature, which sends players back to their house if they get lost.
