The reveal of the new Animal Crossing-themed Nintendo Switch caused quite a stir on the internet last night. Nintendo has now confirmed that the special system will also be available in Europe, though with a few differences. Instead of March 13 like in North America, the system will be available on March 20, the same day Animal Crossing: New Horizons launches. As such, the system also comes with a download code for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. It seems like the Animal Crossing-themed Switch will only be available in this bundle and can’t be purchased separately in Europe.

Nintendo also confirmed that the two AC-themed Carrying Cases will be available in Europe on March 20 as well.
