Wake me up before you download Go-Go Town on Nintendo Switch

Step aside, there’s a new mayor in town - it's you, and you’ve got a lot of work ahead to bring a town back from the brink in Go-Go Town on Nintendo Switch.

Go Go Town Switch: a view of the town center and characters

Are you looking to fill the Animal Crossing-shaped hole? I know I am, and another contender is on the horizon. The Future Games Show revealed Go-Go Town among countless other amazing titles, but this one especially piqued our interest.

Created by Prideful Sloth, Go-Go Town has some serious power behind it with industry veterans from Activision, Rocksteady, and other fantastic companies, which tells us it’s going to be good. It’s an open-world sandbox game with elements of management and life simulation that has players build up a town from the ground up.

Turns out, you’re now the Mayor of Go-Go Town. Congratulations, I guess – except the corporation that put you there – TownCo – are actually running a scam. You now need to revive the town and turn it from an overgrown wasteland to a bustling and fun locale.

On top of construction and terraforming, you can fish, farm, mine, and make friends with the locals. You can even high-five a cow, which I think is better than petting a dog and wish it appeared in more games.
