Ever wondered what Animal Crossing: New Horizons would look like as a JRPG? This one talented artist answered that question through mock cover art.
Not only does the art reflect the unique style of the Animal Crossing series as a whole but the dynamic poses and vibrant colors convey a sense of drama and excitement that the genre’s modern entries often have. As one comment stated, this cover gives off Persona vibes and I couldn’t agree more.
According to Famitsu, Animal Crossing: New Horizons on Switch sold more than 1.88 million copies as of March 23th. The title released worldwide on March 20th, which means it managed to sell 1.88 million physical copies in Japan in only three days. Even more surprising is that Famitsu reported that according to its estimates, Animal Crossing had the best first-week sales ever for a Switch game in Japan, surpassing every other Nintendo Switch record such as Pokemon Sword and Shield, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2, Super Smash Brothers Ultimate, etc.
In the months leading up to New Horizon‘s release, DOOM Eternal has been consistently paired with the former as the two games share a release date. This resulted in tons of wholesome crossover fanart, which culminated in a new animated video from 3D artist and animator The Dashing Doctor K. Said video (which was built in Source Filmmaker) brings together the worlds of Animal Crossing and DOOM, as it imagines the Doom Slayer making a new friend in Isabelle, with the two quickly becoming best buds and working together to fight off the demons of Hell.

And Tommy Wiseau, of The Room fame, has been apparently playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons as well. A recent tweet from the infamous actor, writer, and director showed off a screenshot that contains a ton of easter eggs from The Room. His in game room contains a football sitting on a desktop, a famous piece of iconography, and even a piece of art hanging up in the background which is a recreated still frame of himself from the movie.
