If there is at least one company who seems to be benefiting from the coronavirus pandemic, it would be Nintendo. Due to the fact that people are being forced to stay home to self-isolate to help curb the spread of the virus, many are looking for alternative forms of entertainment, such as with the Nintendo Switch.
The idea of getting married virtually, like in video games, isn’t exactly new. There are plenty of video games out there that already support in-game weddings, and we have also seen in the past where couples who meet in video games and end up getting married, sometimes also hold their weddings in the games that they met in.
There’s some bad news today for those who have been waiting for Animal Switch to arrive on the Nintendo Switch. The company confirmed during its E3 Direct event today that the Animal Crossing New Horizons title, which is meant to be a Switch-exclusive, isn’t going to be released for the console until next year.
