Nintendo reveals Animal Crossing coming to Nintendo Switch in 2019

The last Nintendo Direct broadcast Luigi's apparent death, with his soul appearing to leave his body - so whether the new game will address this is yet to be seen.

I fell for it. Again! If the teasers are anything to go by, it's going to look absolutely bangin'.

As part of the surprisingly bountiful Nintendo Direct announcement, Nintendo showcases the teasers of all teasers when they revealed that a new Animal Crossing game is coming in 2019. U Deluxe is coming to Switch on January 11, and as the rumour suggested, the package also includes New Super Luigi U. Mario, Luigi, and Toad return as playable characters, but they'll also be joined by Nabbit, and Toadette.

It's the only "wah wah" we'll be getting. Annoyingly, very little that we didn't already know was shared, but an FAQ section on the official Nintendo website gives us a little bit more information.

Although the 41 second trailer doesn't give away much, it does give us a sneak peek at the high quality graphics and gameplay.

That being the case, we'd soon believe that this is going to be a proper Animal Crossing sequel and not a spin-off like Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp and some other recent games in the series.
