Since Animal Crossing: New Horizons is one of the best-selling titles on the Switch, Nintendo would have surely analyzed the impact of this new console for existing titles. While the resolutions of both consoles are the same, the OLED display offers a much greater contrast in colors which will help you to appreciate the changing of seasons in a game like New Horizons much more.

A lot of the screenshots featuring upcoming seasonal items on Animal Crossing’s Twitter account are of extremely high quality. Some of these images are in 4K quality and others exceed even that. While this is still not the 4K graphics most fans of the game have wished for, the visuals of the game are progressing.
