Nintendo Direct March 2020 Animal Crossing New Horizons update: Bad news for Switch fans

Nintendo Switch owners are eagerly waiting for the March 2020 Direct conference to take place.

While Nintendo is yet to make an official announcement, fans have been speculating about what will be included in the Direct conference.

If the Direct conference focuses on games coming out in 2020, then we should get updates on Metroid Prime 4, Breath of the Wild 2 and Bayonetta 3.

Fans are also hoping for information on the Super Smash Bros Ultimate Fighters Pass 2, as well as release dates for games like Hollow Knight: Silksong.

Unfortunately, however, it looks like we might be waiting a little longer for news on any Animal Crossing New Horizons DLC.

The good news is that according to game director Aya Kyogoku, new DLC and post-release content are coming to the game.

Unfortunately, however, in an interview with the Washington Post, Kyogoku said that these plans may get pushed back due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

“We’re not sure if we have to shift anything, but I think we have to be flexible,” Kyogoku said.

The new Animal Crossing whisks players off to a tropical island as part of the Nook Inc. Deserted Island Getaway Package.

“If the hustle and bustle of modern life’s got you down, Tom Nook has a business venture up his sleeve that he knows you’ll adore: his brand-new, ultra-exclusive Nook Inc. Deserted Island Getaway Package!” reads the official description.

“Sure, you’ve crossed paths with colourful characters near and far. Had a grand old 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 just longs for…freedom? A chance to do what you want, when you want? 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.”

Players can customise their homes by scavenging materials, crafting upgrades and purchasing items from the in-game shop.

That’s on top of all the usual activities like fishing, bug catching and growing plants and crops.

Expect new items and activities to join Animal Crossing New Horizons when the DLC does eventually drop.
