    Nintendo has teamed up with the folks at Future Press to create an official companion guide for Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

    After getting ‘laid off,’ Animal Crossing’s ornery Mr. Resetti has a new job in New Horizons

    Well, well, looks like Resetti has a job again.When last we heard of Animal Crossing’s peevish mole, the Nintendo Switch’s autosave function was going to moot his job in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Since the first Animal Crossing in 2002, Resetti would oversee players resetting their games and cast a suspicious eye upon those doing so to exploit the game. Lead developer Aya Kyogoku said straight up last year that Resetti had been let go: “He was laid off from his position,” Kyogoku told Mashable. Cold blooded!

    Nintendo reuploads Animal Crossing Direct, removing reference to one-time save data recovery

    While the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Nintendo Direct this week was fantastic, Nintendo has received a fair bit of backlash regarding its Cloud Save feature for Nintendo Switch Online members. The game won’t be backed up to the cloud and if your system becomes defective you can only recover the save once by contacting Nintendo. This was revealed via tiny text in the Direct itself. However, Nintendo has reuploaded the video and removed the reference of a one time recovery of data. Hopefully they are looking again at how this will work to satisfy fans.

    Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon says that he “would love to see” a Mortal Kombat character added to Smash Ultimate

    Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon, in a D.I.C.E. Summit 2020 interview with Shacknews, was asked about the possibility of a Mortal Kombat character, such as Scorpion and Sub-Zero, getting representation in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Boon said that “for me personally (I can’t speak for all of Warner Bros or anything), that would be kind of like a stamp of approval. It’d be like being part of the gang and all that stuff. I would love to see that. That would be a really cool thing to see”.

The pair said in the video’s description that “we’re getting so excited for Animal Crossing: New Horizons⁠—especially after the Nintendo Direct yesterday⁠—that we decided to do a fun character bracket with familiar and new Animal Crossing characters! We rated them on a scale of 1 – 5 in the categories of cuteness, helpfulness, and personality”. An official tweet containing the video is down below.

    EVE Online will let you hide a frigate inside your battleship, for emergencies

    Dang it, you’ve sunk my battleship. It’s fine, it had a smaller boat inside it all along. No, that’s definitely how the game Battleships work. I know what I’m talking about. Time was in EVE Online, losing your spaceship meant losing the fight. But CCP are mixing up intergalactic PVP by announcing new Frigate Escape Bays – getting you back in the fight by turning some of New Eden’s biggest ships into starfaring matryoshka dolls.

    Dreams? Never heard of it. Media Molecule’s swish toolset might be locked down to PlayStation folks, but those rascals at Dutch indie collective Sokpop have already given us one better. The latest entry in their twice-monthly release catalogue is Sok-Worlds, a set-dressing toy for making and exploring 3D simple collages.
