You can spend your summer days and nights swimming and diving, discovering new Pokémon, exploring mysterious islands, and more!


Get ready to make a splash

You can grab an in-game wetsuit and dive into fun in your own island paradise in the Animal Crossing: New Horizons game. A series of free updates* to the game delivers fun features, including the ability to swim and dive! You can swim in the inviting waters off the coast of your island and dive to discover and scoop up sea creatures than inhabit your island’s ecosystem.


Discover the Isle of Armor

You can explore a new part of the Galar region with the Pokémon Sword Expansion Pass and Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass paid DLC**. The first new adventure unlocked by your Expansion Pass will take place on The Isle of Armor. You’ll find wave-swept beaches, forests, bogs, caves, and sand dunes. There are also plenty of Pokémon that make this island their home, living freely amid the lush nature.


Race for the top spot

There are 42 characters to choose from in the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe game. How many have you tried? Some players like to race as the same character every time. This summer, you can challenge yourself to try a character you haven’t ever used. You can give Dry Bones, Koopa Troopa, Lakitu, or Waluigi a spin on the kart track. You can also test out different vehicles and customization options on your favorite tracks!


Have a family game night

You can turn any night into a super-fun family game night with the Super Mario Party game. Just like in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, there are lots of different playable characters to choose from in the four-player*** Mario Party mode. One good reason to try out a different characters is that each one has their own specific Dice Block. For example, Mario can roll 1,3,3,3,5, or 6 instead of rolling 1,2,3,4,5, or 6.


Explore Koholint Island

No one wants to be shipwrecked, but there are worse places to be stranded this summer than Koholint Island in the Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening game. You can explore this tropical paradise, meet the colorful folks who live on the island, collect valuable treasure…and watch out for monsters like Octoroks!
