Animal Crossing: New Horizons is changing a lot of series staples for its debut on Switch, and it seems one of those changes might come from in-game purchases.
Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp was the first entry in the franchise to introduce microtransactions, which was to be expected from a mobile game. Now concerns of microtransactions are cropping up for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and they stem from the game's Nintendo.com listing.
As of right now, the Nintendo listing for the game shows it as having in-game purchases. Now this listing could certainly be an error, as we've seen happen with Nintendo's pages in the past. That said, I guess it's not a big stretch to imagine microtransactions jumping from the mobile game to New Horizons.
