RUMOR - Multiple UK retailers list Animal Crossing Switch for April 29th, 2019

Animal Crossing is coming to the Switch, we know that for a fact. The only other detail we know is that the game is set to launch in 2019. Nintendo is yet to share any other details about the title, but according to some UK game retailers, we could be seeing the game release sooner than many expect.

Reports from both GAME and GameStop have said that we'll be going hands-on with the game on April 29th, 2019. That's definitely a lot earlier than most people were expecting. Now obviously, these retailers could have the date wrong, and nothing is official until Nintendo confirms. All I can say is that I certainly hope this info is right!

Thanks to MegaMan64 for the heads up!

The 29th is a Monday, Nintendo games launch on Fridays.

Yeah, it seems unlikely it's going to be released on the 29th. For the same reason Spacecowboy said.
Now if it released on April 26 I can see it being truer. Bring on that Direct Nintendo so we can get a clear answer. Hopefully.

Take that 9 and turn it upside down and you get 6!!! April 26th confirmed :D

Omg! How did I not see that. Sneaky Nintendo! ;)

I can't see this date being real. We've heard and seen nothing since its reveal trailer last September and this is going to release a month after Yoshi's Crafted World? I don't think so. It's likely going to be one of the key games released towards the end of the year.

I think the Animal Crossing for Switch Will release in The summer or fall of This year unless This Title sufer a delay and release next year

I imagine that Animal Crossing will aim for a Summer release.
