When Nintendo announced the release of the Nintendo Switch’s Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the fifth main title in the critically successful and universally beloved Animal Crossing video game series after an eight year lull without any new titles, many people were excited. From long-time Animal Crossing fans to excited newbies, people young and old have been excitedly awaiting the game’s official release date of March 20, 2020. Even celebrities have expressed their excitement over the game. Like today’s latest discovery: Brie Larson.
That’s right folks – Academy Award-winner and Captain Marvel herself is like all of us and cannot wait for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Don’t believe us? The receipts are below.
Yesterday evening, Nintendo of America’s official Twitter account posted a tweet with images of the all new Nintendo Switch console inspired by the upcoming Animal Crossing game. With a mint green and light blue joy-cons, a tan docking station featuring Tom Nook on a tiny island surrounded by baby blue waves, a uniquely patterned design on the back, and an adorable Switch case featuring the signature Animal Crossing leaf pattern, the new console definitely warrants an excited reaction.
Upon the many fans who have expressed their interest in the new console by either replying or retweeting the image, Brie Larson’s retweet was one tweet that has garnered a lot of attention. Though the actual caption of her tweet is simple, it’s led to the gathering of many fans in her replies to gush about the game and express their admiration for the actress’ love of Animal Crossing.
Many fans have additionally come to the conclusion that they could potentially have a chance to connect with Brie, and have asked for the actress to drop her friend code and Switch ID to her fans.
The new Animal Crossing-themed Nintendo Switch will drop the same day as New Horizons‘ release in March. For those who can’t wait to get their hands on it (and don’t want to risk the console selling out in stores), Best Buy now has the item available for pre-order.
