Like the vast majority of Nintendo Switch owners, I’ve been playing Animal Crossing New Horizons since it released back on March 20th. While I can say without a doubt that no one is enjoying living through a pandemic, finding little social loopholes like Animal Crossing has made it a little more bearable. For those who aren’t familiar, Animal Crossing is a franchise started by Nintendo in 2001. Since then, the franchise has had 4 additional main titles, 3 spin offs, and even an animated movie.

All the non player characters are anthropomorphic animals.

This is usually due to geographical limitations; however, with our current climate of being stuck indoors, we can now digitally travel to three different worlds to experience these amazing and unique birds thanks to Hoopla.
