It’s been so long since we’ve had a proper Animal Crossing experience. Animal Crossing: New Horizons will own your life when it launches March 20.

Get ready to sink countless hours into the most extensive and immersive Animal Crossing game yet. Instead of the doldrums of village life, Tom Nook sells you on some seriously sweet island property. Sure, it’s deserted but that just means you can make it your own.

For the first time ever, you’ll get to craft your own tools and furniture, and even place it outside, giving you more ways to customize your island paradise than ever before. Considering that the series is returning to consoles, everything will be bigger. Bigger inventories, bigger shops, bigger museums, bigger everything!

And because it’s on the Switch, you can play on-the-go just like New Leaf, or docked like back in the Gamecube days. It’s truly a perfect Animal Crossing experience.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons releases March 20 and is available for pre-order for $59.99.
