Isabelle Could Show Up In Animal Crossing: New Horizons - E3 2019
The Shih Tzu is always willing to help out.
During its E3 2019 Direct, Nintendo announced that the new Animal Crossing game for Switch has been delayed to March 2020. Though the news is a bummer, we did learn what the game's official name is--Animal Crossing: New Horizons. We also learned that fan-favorite character Isabelle isn't leaving the franchise behind.
Polygon spoke with game director Aya Kyogoku on the show floor at this year's E3. As Kyogoku explains it, the Shih Tzu could make an appearance in the game depending on how the island develops. "At first on the deserted island, you have Tom Nook, Timmy and Tommy, and a few other animals that have moved to the island through Getaway Package with you," Kyogoku told Polygon. "Depending on the population, the development level of the island will change, so you may start to see more new characters added to the island."
Though Kyogoku didn't give specifics on how Isabelle will show up, she did reassure fans that the Leslie Knope-type is always willing to lend a helping hand. "One thing that I could definitely say about Isabelle is that as the island develops a little more and it needs a little bit more support then Isabelle might see some sort of use on the island."
Pre-orders for the life sim are now live ahead of the game's new March 20, 2020 release date. In case you missed it, check out Animal Crossing: New Horizons' latest trailer below.
