Demonstrators reversed the peaceful nature of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The first Hong Kong protests are taking place on the Nintendo Switch.
Hamburg / Hong Kong – The game Animal Crossing: New Horizons * is hard to beat in cuteness. Not only is the Nintendo Switch player on an idyllic island, so to speak, on vacation, but friendly ACNH residents also create a completely harmonious environment. But as ingame.de * now reports, supporters of a political movement are using Animal Crossing: New Horizons for a protest demonstration on the Nintendo Switch *.
Shortly after the release on March 20, 2020, the animal protection organization PETA expressed displeasure about Animal Crossing: New Horizons for the first time, the Nintendo Switch title is now used again as an instrument for an ideological agenda. This time it’s not about the wellbeing of nature or animals, but about political messages that should be made public with the help of the successful video game.
