Animal Crossing has had two decades of glory as one of the best life/community simulation games. However, the franchise has always been exclusive to Nintendo consoles.

Finally, this year will see the release of a roster of games on Android devices that can help recreate the taste of this iconic sim.

Even PCs have found an alternative to Animal Crossing with the recent release of Hokko Life. With the lack of updates regarding Animal Crossing: New Horizons at the E3 and the rise of alternatives, fans wonder if its popularity is falling.

But in any case, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and the other titles in the series, have given the community many great memories and will always be wholesome getaways from the rigors of daily life.
