Old Animal Crossing Feature Comes to New Horizons

PAX East Showed off Old Animal Crossing Feature in New Horizons

During the recent PAX East gameplay demo, some gamers discovered that a feature from the original GameCube title has been implemented in New Horizons. Animal Crossing: New Horizons allows gamers more control of the camera than any other Animal Crossing title, including the ability to play the game from a top-down perspective. The camera will default to the more angled perspective but the ability to swap to the old school style is a feature long-time fans of the franchise will appreciate. Animal Crossing: New Horizons will be available exclusively for the Nintendo Switch when it releases on March 20th.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Pre-Order

The original Animal Crossing: Population Growing featured an acre system in place of today’s Animal Crossing titles’ rolling landscape, with the top-down perspective complimenting the grid style. Though it took the developers a while to implement the top-down perspective with the rolling landscape, we’re looking forward to the classic feel and the ability to switch between both perspectives on the fly. We recently confirmed other new features from the PAX East demo, including the in-depth decoration and brand new crafting system.

Complimenting the new PAX East demo was a booth similar to something you’d see on a kids TV show, with great props inspired by the game and a set that mimicked the landscape of the game. PAX East attendees also got free gifts, including an Isabelle pin and a fashionable Nooking Tote Bag. With the old school top-down perspective returning to Animal Crossing in New Horizons, we’re looking forward to seeing how our islands look from both perspectives.

Are you a fan of the original Animal Crossing title on GameCube or are you a more recent fan? Will you be trying the top-down perspective or are you sticking to the angled look? Let us know in the comments below!
