The latest ‘Nintendo Switch My Way’ shows a mother and daughter playing Animal Crossing together. It’s rather sweet.

Nintendo, in its wisdom, does a series called the ‘Nintendo Switch My Way’ trailers. They’re a series of short commercials for the Switch (and now also the Switch Lite) that show you can, you guessed it, play it your way.

Essentially, it’s a reminder that you can play games on the Nintendo Switch in handheld mode, and in various places, while you’re at it. (Like this one, that reminds you that you can play Final Fantasy on a plane!)

The latest ‘Nintendo Switch My Way’ video – for Animal Crossing: New Horizons – is a little different. Yes, it shows people playing the game in handheld. (They sort of have to; both people featured in the video are using Switch Lite handhelds.)

But it leans into an aspect of Animal Crossing that has always been a series highlight: visiting the villages of your friends and family.

It’s nothing new. It’s nothing particularly enlightening, either about the Nintendo Switch or Animal Crossing: New Horizons. But it is a reminder of just how lovely Animal Crossing is as a series, and how the game can bring people together.

In this instance, it’s an adorable mother/daughter combo. There’ll be a lot of that when New Horizons launches in March. (And we reckon lots of you will be playing on the special edition Animal Crossing-themed Switch console.)
