If you haven’t noticed the love that the new Animal Crossing on Switch has been getting then I feel like you might be one of the unlucky, or maybe lucky, few.
Gamers all over have taken to living a virtual Island life with animal friends in a time when most places are encouraging you to stay inside just as Spring is starting to hit us with nice weather. With a Pandemic making life extremely difficult for many a cute little game has taken the world by storm.
So how is Animal Crossing New Horizons helping the world in such a tough time?
Last week surprised me by actually having me on the edge of my seat for most of the second half of the episode. I kind of liked how everything came together and even though I had guessed that Namikoshi was probably still alive it still shocked me a little bit that he was still alive.
That is the highest praise I can possibly give the anime.
The anime that you think couldn’t possibly top the episode before always manages to top the episode before. Whether its story wise, effect wise, shock value wise or just killing you emotionally one feeling at a time.
OK so I played this the day it come out but have yet to write about it. I’ve been having a bit of a mentally slow week. It came out the day before my birthday so it was a nice birthday treat from Square Enix.
And can I just say (because it ain’t a damn spoiler any more) am I the only bloody person who ended up with Kate jumping off the building?! Someone tell me the difference between Kate living and dying. We have a shrine outside her bedroom and Queen Bitch (Victoria) acting all “Katie was my friend Mr Jefferson now sleep with me” when you are lurking about with Chloe. Tell me there is something nice happening to Kate in the alternative world that I fucked up trying to get into?
