Nintendo's Animal Crossing games are acclaimed for their characters, charm, and engrossing design, which is why it's so exciting that the GDC 2020 Design track will host an hour-long session on "Creating a New Horizon: Bringing Animal Crossing to Nintendo Switch."

Presented by producer Hisashi Nogami and director Aya Kyogoku, this talk will delve into the fundamental concepts and design philosophies that have been a part of the franchise since the beginning, and reveal how these ideas have evolved over time in response to changes in the world around us.

Attendees will gain fresh insight into the unique gameplay experiences that Nintendo developers create and see how these design concepts are realized in the latest entry in the Animal Crossing franchise, Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
