Animal Crossing Switch Release Date: Does tax return tease hint at a new announcement (Pic: Nintendo)

Nintendo of America recently shared a cryptic tweet about filing your tax return.

Why is this important? Well, it was accompanied with an image of the one and only Tom Nook, the lovable character from the Animal Crossing franchise.

Many fans believe that this was just a light-hearted tweet informing people about the necessity of tax returns using a character known for his role in the franchise as a landlord and shop owner.

Makes sense.

However, other fans believe that this tweet may contain a hint about the eagerly anticipated Animal Crossing Switch game.

The tweet reads:

Tom Nook is here to help you file your tax returns… and he already has an idea for what to do with your refund! The tweet was followed by a link to the Nintendo Store home page.

So whats got people acting like Charlie from Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia? Let us connect those dots…

In the US, Tax Day (the date in which tax returns are due to be filed) is the 15th of April.

The Animal Crossing franchise will celebrate its 18th anniversary on the 14th of April, the day before Tax Day.

Does the close correlation of these dates allude to some sort of incoming announcement?

Info-starved Animal Crossing fans say it does.

Especially when you take into the fact on top of this information, April the 15th is the day in which Reggie Fils-Aimé is retiring as Nintendo of Americas President.

Additionally, Nintendo often hold a Nintendo Direct in April, revealing new information about their upcoming catalogue of games.
