Animal Crossing has always been about the variety of different characters in the game, whether it's your own custom-created villager or the number of other villagers you'll meet in the game. The relationships between these characters are very important, as friendship means a lot when you build a city with many different people. These are the reasons why people return to Animal Crossing year-round to check on your friends, but one of the areas that the series tackled was romantic relationships. With Animal Crossing: New Horizons taking the series to the next level with plenty of new features, has it asked us if you can get married in this new game?
Can you get married?
From the start of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you'll be placed on your island getaway with a few villagers beyond the Nooks. You'll expand your island with additional villagers over time, allowing you to form new relationships with them as soon as they arrive.
However, Animal Crossing: New Horizons hasn't taken the next step with relationships, as you won't find romantic relationships or the possibility of getting married in this latest entry in the long-running series. You will still definitely find many old and new characters to interact with on your island and other islands in the game, but unfortunately no marriages are found in the game.
Nintendo certainly isn't averse to having romance or marriage in their games, with the Fire Emblem series being built on them for the past few years. Considering how much time you'll be spending on your island and coming back again and again with the Animal Crossing: New Horizons playstyle, it's the perfect playstyle where relationships and families could have been set up.
