Could fans be any more ready for Animal Crossing: New Horizons? Announced back in 2018, the new installment in the 19-year-old series has evolved for 2020 to include gender-neutral customizations, new tools and even more fun pieces of furniture and decor—and that’s just a portion of the fresh features. 

Looking at the current state of the world around us, the release comes at the perfect time for players to stay inside, charge up their Joy Cons and begin to explore a virtual world surrounded by old friends such as Isabelle and Tom Nook.

With only one day left until the game is available on Nintendo Switch, our patience is wearing thin. It may be hard to believe only about seven years have passed since Nintendo released Animal Crossing: New Leaf for Nintendo 3DS. Let’s face it: Pocket Camp couldn’t hold our interest once New Horizons confirmed its release date. The wait is nearly over, but until then, let’s take a look at some of the best memes to describe how all AC enthusiasts are feeling during this final stretch.
