Last week, Animal Crossing: New Horizons got banned in China.
Well, sort of. It's hard to ban a game that's not officially on sale in the first place. Now, though, it's a lot harder to track down a copy of New Horizons via an online retailer, because import copies of Animal Crossing have been removed from common internet shops.
There's no official explanation for this just yet - the Chinese government doesn't always do official explanations - but all signs point to this being related to ongoing protests in neighbouring Hong Kong, where fans of the Animal Crossing have been using the new game to stage online protests inside their Nintendo Switch consoles.
So, if you live in China and you want to hang out with Isabelle, Tom Nook, and the rest of the island villagers, you're stuck. But, then if you're in China, it's impressive that you're even watching this video, considering that YouTube is banned there. Not Animal Crossing: New Horizons banned. Proper banned.
Anyway, hope you're doing well. Stay safe, and remember: other people are poison.
Lots of love,
