Animal Crossing: New Horizons may be adding microtransactions, North American ESRB rating has confirmed.
The game’s official Nintendo eShop page confirms that New Horizons has been rated “E for Everyone” and features “Comic Mischief – Users Interact, In-Game Purchases”.
Pokemon Sword and Shield had the same item listed in its ESRB rating on Nintendo Switch Online and not actual in-game item purchases. So we could be looking at the same thing here.
It's still unclear what the microtransactions are or how much they'll cost but Nintendo did confirm that New Horizons will limit a Switch to a single island, no matter how many individually registered users are playing.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons will be available on Nintendo Switch on March 20.
