Here’s The Cheapest Copies Of Animal Crossing: New Horizons In Australia

It’s finally Animal Crossing week! While the world suffers through an unprecedented epidemic, it’s great to know that some relief is on the way.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons releases alongside Doom Eternal this Friday. Here’s the cheapest copies on the market so far, and any pre-order bonuses they come with.

Hands On: Animal Crossing: New Horizons Will Put You Right To Work

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a hard game to demo, but Nintendo invited me to try to do it anyway last weekend at PAX East. I came away from my brief trip to its deserted island impressed by how pretty everything looked and eager to continue toiling away on its beaches, in its fields, and at its crafting bench, creating my own private getaway from the modern world.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the first mainline Animal Crossing title since 2012’s New Leaf on Nintendo 3DS, so there’ll be an understandable rush on game copies.

If you aren’t currently in self-isolation thanks to the novel coronavirus epidemic, there’s a bunch of physical stores with solid prices, otherwise there’s equally good prices for online delivery (although you may have to wait longer for delivery if ordering online).

So far, it looks like Harvey Norman has the best price around for $68.

Animal Crossing is so close we can nearly taste it. Are you looking forward to the game?


  • The Harvey Norman link no longer seems to work, and searching their site no longer shows a listing for it.

    EDIT: Link is working again. Yay!

  • Out of every game, this is probably the number 1 example for going digitial. The game is a slow burn, play a little every day (probably a lot at first) then onto whatever ‘main’ game you are playing. Just saves having to do game swaps every day. I guess it’s not as big as a problem if you primarily play handheld, but mine lives hidden behind the TV.

      • You can use half of one of those double vouchers which brings it mostly in line with cheaper physical copies. But I’ve taken the hit a few times for games where it makes sense. Brawl, Splatoon2 and MK8 were all ones that get regular playtime over years.

          • I bought a 128GB card and that’s been more than enough. I’ve only deleted a handful of games that I am 100% done with and still have loads of space still.

          • I bought a pretty chunky card for doing most of my games digital, and never looked back. I’ve got so many huge games on there. Skyrim, Diablo, BotW, Fire Emblem, Astral Chain, and just… dozens and dozens of indies.
