It's actually here, out in the wild right now, but if you haven't picked it up yet, you'll need to know what the best Animal Crossing New Horizons prices are right now to make sure you get yourself a good deal. The reviews have been nearly a whitewash in perfection and the game is exactly what the world needs right now. You can read our full Animal Crossing: New Horizons review here.

In essence, however, the new game takes us to a customisable, deserted island this time around and tasks players with building a relentlessly cheerful little society on it, presumably so Tom Nook can foist another crippling mortgage on us. But at least the best Animal Crossing price you can get will mean you're jumping in and saving a few currencies at the same time. Hopefully.

To give you a better idea of what's on offer now it's released and where you can get the best Animal Crossing New Horizons price and deals, our team and magical price finding tech had rounded up all the info you need right here. This will give you a better idea of what's available as retailers wherever you are. It doesn't stop at just the game though, as there's Special Edition Switch going too, and, amazingly, it is still available at some retailers. Though, given its delectable tweeness, we are unsure how long it'll be before that sells out. But there's always hope!

Meanwhile, be sure to check out our Animal Crossing: New Horizons guide for full details on gameplay to feed your hype one last time.

This is great news for Animal Crossing fans - and Switch newcomers, of course - as you can not only get the game via the above links but also bag yourself an awesome Animal Crossing design Switch console. It's described by Nintendo as having "...lovely pastel green and blue Joy-Con controllers that are white on the back, white wrist straps and a white Nintendo Switch dock, adorned with images of recognizable characters Tom Nook and Nooklings Timmy and Tommy."

This is hot stuff - but as a result, it's really hard to get hold of. It's US list price is around $300  and then £320 in the UK - but you'll be very lucky to find one at that price right now.

Getting the most out of Animal Crossing

To get the most out of your Animal Crossing game, you'll want to aim for a Nintendo Switch setup that's as optimized as possible. Starting simply, that means examining what the best Nintendo Switch bundles going offer you. Elsewhere, you'll probably want to see what your options are for getting a cheap Nintendo Switch controller if you want a more traditional Pro Controller to play Animal Crossing with, not to mention raiding retailers for some of the best Nintendo Switch accessories. One of the accessories that you should definitely invest in is a Nintendo Switch SD card for general use, as well as the fact that the Switch only comes with the alarmingly low 32GB of memory as standard. To complete the package, protect your Switch with the best case for Nintendo Switch and then plug in one of the best Nintendo Switch headsets to have your Animal Crossing game fully serviced and optimized. 

A lot to consider perhaps, particularly given Nintendo gear holds its price quite stubbornly. However, if you're able to upgrade your Switch setup in any of these departments, then you'll be off to a blinder.
