Animal Crossing: New Horizons Version 2.0 Gets a Surprise Early Launch, Available Now

Well, this is a lovely surprise. Originally announced to launch tomorrow, Nintendo decided to roll out Animal Crossing: New Horizons Version 2.0 a day early. Putting it live at 2AM BST, they'd originally confirmed it'd launch on November 5th.
