Animal Crossing series fans might need to brace themselves for an exciting April, if some UK retailers are to be believed.
Apparently, GAME and GameStop are starting to take pre-orders for Animal Crossing on Nintendo Switch, which Nintendo teased at last year. According to said retailers, Nintendo fans could see the game launching as early as 29 April 2019!
Check out the following tweets, from some excited fans.

LADS I went into GameStop to have a look at the Switch games and I ended up placing a deposit on a pre-order for the new animal crossing game 😭 it’s going to cost €70 and it has a date of release on 29th April!!! But the guy said that’s an estimate and it could be here earlier

As with all unconfirmed information, we urge readers to take this date with a grain of salt. If these retail sources are reliable, however, we should receive some sort of announcement from Nintendo soon.
