A Super Smash Bros. Ultimate reveal wasn’t the only surprise that Animal Crossing fans got in today’s Nintendo Direct. A brief stinger after the Smash trailer revealed that Animal Crossing is finally coming to the Switch.

The trailer features Tom Nook at his desk. He lets the audience know that he’s preparing for a place to come home after they spend time “camping and smashing.” Then, the title officially flashes.

All we know for now is that the game will launch in 2019. The trailer might have been created in the new game’s engine, though take it with a grain of salt as it’s marked “Not actual gameplay footage.” We’ll need to wait and see to find out more.

Well, it’s been a long wait, but it’s finally here. The Animal Crossing series is coming back to town with another main installment. What new features and quality-of-life functions are you expecting this time? Let us know!
