Nicely, properly, seems to be like Resetti has a job once more.

When final we heard of Animal Crossing’s peevish mole, the Nintendo Change’s autosave operate was going to moot his job in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Because the first Animal Crossing in 2002, Resetti would oversee gamers resetting their video games and forged a suspicious eye upon these doing so to take advantage of the sport. Lead developer Aya Kyogoku stated straight up final yr that Resetti had been let go: “He was laid off from his place,” Kyogoku informed Mashable. Chilly blooded!

However Kyogoku promised to seek out Resetti one other job, and it appears he stored that promise. Thursday’s Nintendo Direct demonstrated New Horizons rescue service (timestamp 10:55). Gamers who get caught (or are just too lazy to stroll again house) could be picked up by a helicopter, whose whiskered nosecone and hard-hat rotor meeting look suspiciously like Resetti.

He’s not the pilot although; while you name the rescue chopper, the dispatcher sounds moderately like Resetti (timestamp 11:13) It’s good that they discovered the old-timer a gig; I’d hate to suppose he was going to lose his pension or one thing.

My solely hope is that the increasingly a participant makes use of the rescue chopper, the increasingly pissed Resetti is when he solutions the batphone. In earlier video games, Resetti couldn’t cease gamers from resetting, however he might make the method depressing as hell, with longwinded, all-caps tirades and threats to herald Vinny, a relative who’s within the mob. Resetti’s haranguing has been so extreme that 2008’s Animal Crossing: Metropolis Folks wanted a word to oldsters advising them that younger kids may be upset by Resetti’s scoldings.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is coming March 20, 2020 to Nintendo Change.
