The Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing: New Horizons Edition is making its highly-anticipated return.

Nintendo of America announced the console’s comeback on social media, notifying fans to check with their local retailers for stock. The ACNH Switch console arrives with pastel green and blue Joy-Cons, along with a dock that shows Tom Nook, Timmy and Tommy welcoming players to the island.
