This past week saw a lot of Animal Crossing: New Horizons updates. We can also look forward to yet another color of the Nintendo Switch Lite. Keep reading for more details and news here on the News Roundup!
Nintendo Switch Lite – Coral
On April 3, Nintendo is releasing a new color of the Switch Lite. The color is called “coral,” and like the name, sports a beautiful pinkish-orange that calls up images of a relaxing beach. The coral Switch Lite will sell for $199.99.
Animal Crossing Tote Bag or Poster
If you pre-order Animal Crossing: New Horizons through Walmart in America, you will receive an adorable Animal Crossing tote. The tote features everyone’s favorite capitalist, Tom Nook! Alternatively, if you’d rather have a poster, then pre-order the game from Gamestop. The two-sided poster features many of the cast of Animal Crossing.

Our top pick new release of this week is the free game, Warface, an online first person shooter with hundreds of customizable weapons. The game sports 50+ PvP maps based on locations around the world, as well as PvE modes to engage in raids with other players. Play as one of five characters, each with their own unique skills, and customize their look and weapons to suit your tastes.

Season 2 of Fortnite puts you on the Island as it’s being taken over by operatives, Ghost and Shadow. With it comes new exotic map locations. By defeating henchmen and their leader you can score some unique and powerful weapons. If you ever wanted to put yourself in the shoes of 007, then try out the new gadgets Decoy Grenades, Proximity Mines, and Disguise.
Sword and Shield International Challenge
The deadline to join the Pokemon Sword and Shield International Challenge will soon be closing. Sign up by February 27 if you’d like to participate.
