Animal Crossing: New Horizons is coming to the Nintendo Switch!
Coming March 20th, 2020.

Featured Article


Tom Nook's store is the economic centerpiece of every player's town. The store is owned and operated by Tom Nook, the most important non-playable character in the series. In Animal Crossing and Animal Crossing: Wild World, Tom Nook stocks items based in Groups (A, B or C). The player's town is designated a group, and items from that group are more likely to stock in the store. Items from other groups will stock as well, but less frequently. The only way to find out what group the player's town has been designated is for them to keep a tally of the number of items from each group. Item Groups do not exist in Animal Crossing: City Folk, items are available based on individual towns. When the shop is about to upgrade, a message will be posted on the News Bulletin telling that on the next day, the shop will be closed for remodeling. In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Tom Nook's store is replaced with Timmy and Tommy's store, run by Tom Nook's two nephews. Tom Nook now works at a home improvement store, Nook's Homes. (Read More)
