Nintendo has been gradual on releasing official information about Animal Crossing: New Horizons since its delay final yr. That’s been slightly bizarre, as a result of the Swap recreation is popping out in simply over a month. As such, followers of the town-building, home-decorating, animal-schmoozing collection have taken issues into their very own arms. This manifested most not too long ago within the evaluation of a number of low-resolution sticker photos listed on the net HMV storefront earlier than they ultimately vanished.

The tweet saying this week’s Nintendo Direct racked up 4,000 likes in simply two minutes, and as of this writing sits at over 35,000.
