Animal Crossing: New Horizons Console Skins Deck Out Your Nintendo Switch

All six console skins are available now.


The much-coveted Animal Crossing Switch console is sold out at every major retailer, but you can still add some New Horizons flavor to your regular 'ole Switch or Switch Lite while you wait for your copy to arrive today (make sure to check out the GameSpot Animal Crossing: New Horizons review-in-progress for our early impressions). Three Animal Crossing console skin sets are available now for both the Switch and Switch Lite. The officially licensed skins from Controller Gear also cost a lot less than the special edition console. Switch console skins are $20, and Switch Lite skins are $10.

Controller Gear's console and controller skins are scratch-resistant and leave no residue on your console, dock, or Joy-Cons after removing them. Since the skins are officially licensed, it's no surprise that the artwork is great. You can check out all six options--three for Switch, three for Switch Lite--below. The Switch skins come with screen protectors as well. Controller Gear also has Animal Crossing tech decal sets for $10, featuring characters like Isabelle and Tom Nook, which can stick to your Switch, laptop, smartphone, and other devices. Some of the skins have proven pretty popular, so you may not get them for a little while, but you can purchase all of them ahead of time.
