    From arcades to home consoles, the gaming industry has always been booming and updating. With new and exciting games being launched every now and then, the industry is going to have a sharp increase in the number of users. If we talk about the Indian Gaming industry, then it is expected that it will reach 380 billion by the year 2026.

    Animal Crossing and Nintendo:

    The game which has always been popular and liked by the players is Animal Crossing. It is a social simulation video game series which was developed and published by Nintendo. The game is a result of the hard work of two super sharp minds Katsuya Eguchi and Hisashi Nogami. The animal crossing series released its fifth game New Horizons in 2020 which is also a life simulation game developed by Nintendo for its Switch console. The game has attracted a huge number of players since its launch in 2020. It is very popular in the United States and has become the most liked game among all those released in the past few years.

    How to play New Horizons:

    In this game, the players have to create their own character and then have to move to a far deserted island. After moving to the island the players have to build a new home for their living and  a community from ground one. The players can also collect many resources from the island like furniture, tools and other such things. There is also an option of interacting with the wildlife and other players of the game. 

    Players are also free to visit each other’s land,  barter things and play mini games together. This was the reason that when people were locked inside their houses during the COVID-19 pandemic, they spent a lot of time playing this game and it ultimately started ruling the hearts of a wide audience.

    Why is the game being admired so much?

    People are liking the game because the visuals of the game are very charming and too much emphasis has been laid on socializing with other players. Soundtrack of the game is also very catchy and has been praised by the fans. 

    The game allows its players to come up with their own goals and objectives and also there is no burden to achieve these specific objectives or results quickly. This makes the players feel relaxed instead of playing in a competitive pressure. So it becomes an ideal option for the people who want to engage in some fun activities during their spare time. It is also suitable for people from all age groups.

    Shunaro Furukawa, Nintendo’s global president since 2018 also stated that, “To an extent we did have a certain expectation that sales would do well, but last year right before release we saw that the pace of the sales was very fast, and that was something we didn’t foresee.”

    McCracken and New Horizon:

    Till now there have been very few games which have combined such amazing features of Nintendo’s Animal Crossing series and Switch’s SwitchMcCracken mode. The new McCracken is a new addition to the series and is also widely being loved by the players. Initially it was planned to release in 2019, but it was released in 2020 and it has many of the same features as  Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp which the gamers have already shown their love for. 

    Players of Animal Crossing: New Horizons will be sent to a barren island where they will have the opportunity to build a colony of anthropomorphic animals. A total of eight players can live on the same island and build homes, things together while interacting with each other. The game also has a new crafting system which allows the players to collect resources and create new items.

    Animal Crossing: New Horizons has sold more than 40 million copies worldwide, making it the series’ best-selling game. It is also the 16th best-selling video game of all time which has been highly praised by the players.
