  • [ speaking animalese ]

  • with a whole community of residents-

  • But don't feel overwhelmed, [relaxing funky music]

  • [acoustic island music]

  • you'd be amazed how much there is to discover when you explore your island.

  • Now, I wouldn't say you live in the sticks, but...

  • there sure are lots of 'em! So, collect them,

  • and anything else that may fall from the trees.

  • There's also a lot to create and customize:

  • from clothing... to wallpaper and flooring...

  • to custom furniture... and more. And speaking of interiors... [music fades]

  • [chill acoustic music]

  • It's your one-stop shop for lots of things,

  • [ speaking animalese ]

  • from homecor...

  • [ speaking animalese ]

  • to replacement tools...

  • to seeds and saplings you can plant wherever you want.

  • [ speaking animalese ]

  • [ speaking animalese ]

  • [gentle acoustic music]

  • Why not share in the fun?

  • In Animal Crossing: New Horizons,

  • you can visit other people's islands

  • to get inspired by what they've done with their place.

  • It's the best way to get fruits and flowers

  • that aren't native to your island.

  • And since everyone's island is a little bit different,

  • you never know who you'll meet there.

  • Embark on a relaxing getaway

  • and get ready to create your new island paradise.
