Pre-Orders For Animal Crossing: New Horizons Available On Eshop, Eligible For Vouchers

Hope you saved one of those Switch vouchers.


Animal Crossing: New Horizons' release date is quickly approaching--the highly anticipated game will launch March 20, 2020 exclusively on Nintendo Switch. Physical pre-orders for New Horizons have been available for a while, but the new Animal Crossing game has finally arrived on the Switch Eshop, meaning you can now pre-order your copy digitally. And if you've been holding onto one of Nintendo's game vouchers from last year, you're in luck, because Animal Crossing: New Horizons is also eligible for that offer.

Nintendo's game voucher program was rolled out last year, offering two vouchers for $100 USD / £84 / AU$134.95. Assuming you redeem the vouchers on two full-price Nintendo Switch games, you could save yourself $20 / £16 / AU$24.95 overall. It was a great deal considering first-party Switch games just don't drop below list price when they're brand-new, and you could redeem the vouchers any two eligible games, from Pokemon Sword and Shield and Luigi's Mansion 3 to Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Unfortunately, vouchers are no longer available to be purchased in the United States or Australia, so hopefully you took advantage of the promotion last year.

If you want to redeem your voucher on Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you can do so in the Nintendo Switch Eshop, or on if you're in the US or Canada. The newly released Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore was just added to the list of eligible titles as well, if you have more than one voucher saved up.

If you prefer to pre-order a physical copy of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Best Buy is offering $10 reward credit as well as a Tom Nook peel-and-stick accessory with all purchases. There's also a wide range of Animal Crossing: New Horizons merchandise, including some very cute Animal Crossing Switch controllers, available to pre-order now.
