It's sort of the perfect storm as it's probably the best iteration of Animal Crossing, there aren't many other prominent releases around this time, and it's a nice compliment to the quarantine. It's quite funny to see 70% of my friends on Switch online all playing the game at once, some of them putting dozens of hours into it. Somehow it's got that oddly addictive appeal to it even though it's a pretty chill and passive game..
Me and like 5 other friends and their bfs/gfs just had an "Animal Crossing party" where we exchanged silly random gifts and did some island hopping. XD
