Yes, 'Animal Crossing' is coming to the Nintendo Switch

Tom Nook will bleed you dry next year.

Nintendo has heard your pleas, Animal Crossing lovers -- A new, full-fledged entry in the series is heading exclusively to the Switch in 2019.

Nintendo saved this juicy announcement for the end of its September 2018 Nintendo Direct live stream, keeping hungry fans waiting just a little bit longer. Over the past few months, players have been clamoring for a Switch version of Animal Crossing, and they've finally gotten their wish.

Details about the new game are scarce for now, but there will be plenty of Nintendo Directs before it launches next year. This will be the first new Animal Crossing game in six years, since New Leaf hit the 3DS in 2013.
