Animal Crossing: New Horizons released for the Nintendo Switch on March 20th, and Walmart has the best current price for the game at $49.94. This price only displays when you add it to your cart, and it’s limit one per customer, so you know it’s going to go quickly.

If you missed out on the above deal, Amazon has the game for $57.88. It’s not quite as good a deal, but it’s still better than full price.

If you’re okay with using an international code, you can save more by purchasing the European digital version from CDKeys for $54. To redeem this code, you’ll need to create a European Switch account; it’s easy to do, but if you’re bothered by the idea of having your games spread across multiple accounts, we recommend you go with Walmart’s offer.

Everything we’ve seen so far has made the wait even harder to deal with, as it appears to be exactly what Animal Crossing fans have been wishing for. Check out the trailer below to see the relaxing gameplay in action:

Oddly enough, the new Animal Crossing Themed Nintendo Switch does not come bundled with Animal Crossing: New Horizons — so be sure to pre-order the game separately.

Instead, you get an Animal-Crossing branded Nintendo Switch with pastel blue and green Joy-Cons. For anyone curious, this is the updated 2019 Nintendo Switch with improved battery, so if you’ve been on the fence about upgrading, there’s never been a cuter option.
