Maximize your experience in Animal Crossing: New Horizons with the correct system and equipment. Continue reading to see the system requirements and our recommended peripheral devices for playing solo or with the family!
List of Contents
All you need to play Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a Nintendo Switch and a copy of the game.
Note: All profiles on the same Nintendo Switch system will share the same island. To create a new island, you need to boot the game on another Switch.
If you are planning to get a Switch for Animal Crossing, you might want to consider buying the limited edition Nintendo Switch inspired by Animal Crossing New Horizons.
As of March 13, 2020, the Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing edition has been available for preorder for $299.99. Check your local game store or Amazon for availability.
This is a list of useful accessories that we recommend for you to enjoy the game more, whether it be beautifying the island by yourself, or playing the game with your friends and family.
Animal Crossing New Horizons allows up to 4 players simultaneously on the island.
You should buy more controllers if there are 3 or more of you playing in the game, as the Nintendo Switch only comes with 2 Joy-Con controllers which can be used by 2 people.

*You can only use the Joy-Con sideways when doing Party Play.
See the list of peripherals for the Nintendo Switch on the official Nintendo website.
If you purchased the game for download, you may want to have extra storage space on your Switch.
The Nintendo Switch has 32GB of storage space in the system, and the downloadable version of Animal Crossing: New Horizons has a capacity of 6.2GB.
Take note that in the future, there will be free updates in the game, and the game's size will increase, so it is better to be prepared.
If you do not have a lot of games on your device, then storage space should not be a worry. This is especially true if you have a physical copy of the game.
Invite your favorite characters to your island by scanning their amiibo.
You can then have them in creative photoshoots, or invite them to stay on your island!
You can play with your friends over the WiFi, but to have a consistent online connection, we recommend getting a LAN adapter for your Switch so you can play comfortably without delays.
If you like bringing your Nintendo Switch outside, it is recommended to get a carrying case to protect your device, especially the screen.
The Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing: New Horizons Edition also comes with a cute Aloha case to keep your Switch safe.
