It was always bound to arrive sooner or later. Nintendo has scheduled a new Nintendo Direct for later this week, focusing exclusively on Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
The Direct itself will be taking place on Thursday, February 20. It'll be kicking off at 6am PT / 9am ET and lasting for right around 25 minutes.

With right around a month to go until Animal Crossing: New Horizons finally launches, there's plenty to delve into. We know we're going to a remote island courtesy of Tom Nook, but which furry friends could we be meeting there?
Animal Crossing: New Horizons releases on March 20, 2020. Although the Coronavirus is slated to cause Switch shortages in the US as early as April, the special Animal Crossing Switch bundle shouldn't be affected by the shortages when it releases alongside the game.
