The newest installment in the Animal Crossing series is set to launch later this year, with New Horizons in development. The game has been anticipated for quite some time now, being the first home console release since 2008’s City Folk. While we still have a couple of months to wait for the release, we now have official information on a companion guide for the game.
The Animal Crossing: New Horizons Official Companion Guide is from Future Press, and Amazon has recently posted a product page revealing lots of new information. The following is the official product page:
“Sit back and relax.

This premium book is both the perfect guide for getting the most out of island life, and the ultimate reference for anyone who insists on having it all.
We’ll get you settled in on your new island home as quickly as possible. Our useful primers will get you oriented and informed on everything a new resident needs to know.
Create Your Paradise
The sea’s the limit when it comes to customizing your island – you just need the right tools and a little guidance ( and maybe a bit of insider information for playing the stalk market). You’ll find all of this here, and more: every tool and app is explained and our tips for design and money making are not to be missed!
Discover and Explore
Museum lovers will be in for a treat – as long as you’re willing to be the one providing the exhibits! It’s a hands-on approach to preservation, and every budding naturalist or palaeontologist needs a solid reference book to consult. You won’t find a single specimen that’s not covered here.

Your island wouldn’t be much of a paradise without decent shopping facilities. Luckily, Timmy and Tommy’s retail experience brings a wealth of desirable goods for purchase. Every last option for the fashionista or interior decorator is lavishly catalogued.
