Multiplayer features will be included in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the game’s director has announced. Boosting the excitement for what was already one of Nintendo’s most anticipated games of 2020.
Aya Kyogoku, the director of New Horizons, revealed in an interview that two new multiplayer modes will be included in the new game. One of which revives a feature from the previous games, where players can visit their friend’s island or invite others to visit their own. Allowing for four people to play locally and eight to play together online.
The second option introduces a brand new feature never before seen in the Animal Crossing Series. Kyogoku revealed, “The second mode is a completely new form of local multiplayer. For the first time in the series, up to four residents living on the same island can play together at the same time in local multiplayer on a single system by sharing Joy-Con controllers…this time, with one system, you’re able to live and play in the same village simultaneously.”
This also comes in addition to information revealed about the storyline and Gameplay teasers released last year. By the looks of it, Animal Crossing: New Horizons really is shaping up to be one of the best games in the series so far!
