The games can be used as a tool for icebreakers, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons was one of the communication channels of the team of the winner of the American election, Joe Biden. He is very lucky to have managed to win before today’s update, as Nintendo has also published new instructions for companies that want to promote themselves through the game. In addition to banning obscenity and vulgarity, content creators should now avoid policies.
At the same time, it is forbidden to use Animal Crossing as a marketing platform that links players to activities and campaigns outside the game, including various competitions, giveaways and the like. You may use it to promote your company only with the express written consent of Nintendo. But you can still go to Biden’s island called Dream Address.
Politics has entered the seemingly naive Animal Crossing several times since its release several times – it has brought together supporters of the Hong Kong protests, Black Lives Matter, and is also used by US Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
