Animal Crossing: New Horizons replacement for $20

An independent video game development company, Wonderscope prepared a game called Hokko Life. This game is very similar to the fan-favorite Animal Crossing: New Horizons. But what makes this game more playable is the price tag of $20, making it the perfect cheap Animal Crossing replacement.

This cheap replacement has almost everything you wanted to try in the original Animal Crossing. The original game tasked the player with the quest to redesign a deserted island and invite more villagers. This game has a similar quest but has to redesign a town instead of an island.

The adorable villagers were one of the essential facts about the Animal Crossing game. Hokko Life also has villagers who look like animals. Further, those who have tried this game have claimed Hooko Life has better crafting mechanics than New Horizons.

Hokko Life is for PC gamers too

Animal Crossing: New Horizons was unavailable to gamers on different gaming consoles being a Switch exclusive. But Hokko Life solved this easy problem, as it is also available on Steam for PC gamers. Hokko Life is still available on early access but would release on PC and Nintendo Switch on September 27.
