Midnight Release for Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Hi Best Buy,

I’m looking for a store that would be open for a midnight release to pick up a copy of Animal Crossing: New Horizons the night it comes out. (March 20th, 2020) I wasn’t sure if your hours are modified for highly anticipated video game releases or not, so I figured I’d ask. I’ll set my preorder for the game for pickup rather than delivery if so.

Thanks!

- Sarah

Hi, Sarah!

Welcome to the Best Buy Forums! Thanks for joining our online community.

At the time that this post is being written, it doesn't appear that we are planning on having an early release for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. You're welcome to keep an eye on our Gaming Events Calendar for the latest information for all special gaming events, including early releases.

Best Buy is currently offering a special pre-order bonus for the physical version of the game, and this title is also eligible for our Get $10 in Rewards program.

 

Happy gaming!

Re: Midnight Release for Animal Crossing: New Horizons

I'm curious with this question as well. According to your gaming events calender, DOOM Eternal, which comes out the same day as animal crossing can be picked up the day before between 8pm-9pm. Doesnt it make sense to include Animal Crossing as well?

Hi, all,

 

While I can appreciate the sentiment here, we will not be able to offer Animal Crossing: New Horizons for early release. It will be available when our stores open on the day of release.

Animal Crossing Soecial Edition Switch

Will there be a midnight release for the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Edition SWITCH Console? I keep trying to call and ask my local store, but for 3 days in a row now, they keep me on hold for over 5 mins and I cannot speak with a live person.

Re: Animal Crossing: New Horizons Midnight Release?

Hi, BleepBloop,

 

Thanks for joining the Best Buy Community forums. People are really excited about Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and I can totally understand you wanting to pick it up early.

 

You can always find our early releases at out gaming calendar, here. We will not be releasing Animal Crossing early, so you'll need to come in on launch day to pick up your order.

 

Please let me know if you have any other questions, or if I can assist with anything else.

 

Sincerely,

Re: Midnight Release for Animal Crossing: New Horizons

I recently called my store and they said you could also get animal crossing early on the 19th at 9pm as well as Doom Eternal. Is this valid? Are some stores doing this?

Re: Midnight Release for Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Hi, nicksz112,

 

Since Animal Crossing: New Horizons doesn't release until Friday, it will not be available at the DOOM Eternal early launch. Your local store was not correct on that, and I apologize for the incorrect information. 

 

Animal Crossing will be available on launch day rather than on the evening before.

 

Sincerely,
