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.

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.
