Nintendo will release an Animal Crossing: New Horizons-themed Switch system on March 13 in North America and March 20 in Europe, Australia, and Japan for $299.99 / 35,960 yen, the company announced.

The system, which takes design inspiration from the game, includes a pair of pastel green and blue Joy-Con controllers that are white on the back, white wrist straps, and a white Switch dock featuring images of characters Tom Nook and Nooklings Timmy and Tommy.

Nintendo also announced the Switch Animal Crossing: New Horizons Aloha Edition Carrying Case & Screen Protector and Switch Lite Animal Crossing: New Horizons Aloha Edition Carrying Case & Screen Protector, which are due out alongside themed system.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which is due out worldwide on March 20, is not included with the themed system or the Carrying Case & Screen Protector accessories. Here is a brief overview of the game, via Nintendo:

“In the Animal Crossing: New Horizons game, players embark on the special Nook Inc. Deserted Island Getaway Package and are whisked away to an island paradise. Here, players can roll up their sleeves and start a life from scratch on a deserted island, eventually making their new life whatever they want it to be—whether decorating their home, crafting, customizing their look or sharing the experience with friends, both in real life and on the island. Animal Crossing: New Horizons marks the debut of the Animal Crossing series on Nintendo Switch and introduces new features, such as crafting, pole-vaulting across rivers and so much more.

The Nintendo Switch system can be played in three modes: TV mode, played on a TV while the system is docked; Handheld mode, when the Joy-Con are attached for portable play; and Tabletop mode, perfect for on-the-go multiplayer gaming sessions.”
